Genuine Bramah, and Bramah type locks have been produced in a wide range of patterns since 1784. Most commonly encountered are usually despatch box or jewel case locks however many other varieties exist. Bramah Australasia can conduct minor repairs and supply replacement keys with the majority of such work being carried out here in Perth, however where more complex repairs and parts are required the lock may have to be forwarded to London.
Such work is naturally not inexpensive being both time consuming and exacting, as such it is best entrusted to us as we have the knowledge, equipment & skills required to execute it correctly without detriment to the lock. We regularly encounter locks that have suffered less care during their history, we can return almost any such lock to complete & correct working order.
For clients with old locks that require service in the first instance we suggest that you contact us to discuss your requirements. Detailed photographs will usually enable us to provide an estimate for the work required, however the lock itself must be examined before a firm quotation can be supplied. In all cases despatch locks to us by registered post and ensure that you contact us before sending any locks.
