Working with Care and Repair, who fit key safes on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council, The Key Safe Company has provided its leading Supra C500 KeySafe™. The key safe has allowed residents to remain independent and continue to live at home, whilst ensuring carers and medical professionals can gain access to properties without restrictions.

South Lanarkshire County Council

Jamie Burgess, Company Manager at Care and Repair in South Lanarkshire, commented: “The key safe allows these clients to continue to live at home in an environment they are comfortable in whist still allowing carers, medical professionals and emergency services to gain access to the property, which we believe greatly contributes to their wellbeing. By using the police accredited key safe it provides family members with the peace of mind that loved ones are protected, whilst being cared for.”

Care and Repair in South Lanarkshire is an independent charity, which offers information and advice to elderly or disabled residents who own their home, as well as private tenants.

The organisation receives referrals from social workers, community safety coordinators, occupational therapists and other associated agencies with requests to install key safes for clients who are in receipt of a care package or are unable to allow access themselves due to a lack of mobility.

Jamie continued: “Security and reliability are two key factors for us and the Supra C500. Its Secured by Design and police accredited credentials gives us confidence that what we are installing is an extremely durable and secure product that can make a real difference by allowing people to remain independent at home.

“We have been installing the C500 for the last eight years and installation training of Care and Repair Technical Officers provided by The Key Safe Company also gives us the knowledge that the Supra C500 KeySafes are installed correctly resulting in a secure device as is possible. “

David Ogden, Managing Director of The Key Safe Company, commented: “Key safes are a vital resource for elderly and vulnerable people and it’s great to see that our products can make such a difference. The Supra C500 is an extremely reliable and secure product, providing unrestricted access and eliminating the need for multiple keys to be cut and handed out. For additional support, our customer service team is always on hand to answer any questions that customers may have.”

The police accredited Supra C500 KeySafe™ is recognised by the Secured by Design initiative, achieving the LPS1175: Issue 6, security rating 1. It is also recognised by leading home insurance companies and the product has undergone a series of rigorous and demanding tests devised by security experts who concluded that it is as attack resistant as a domestic front door.
