In the early 1980s, Master Locksmith Brian Preddey recognised the need for a lock system which provided resistance to picking, impressioning and key duplication. As a result, Brian developed a U-shaped key operating on up to twelve tumbler pins, which in turn activate two sidebars. Brian continues to play a vital role in Australian Lock Company's product design and development, with New Generation BiLock the latest addition to his stable of product initiatives.
Both the First Generation of BiLock and the New Generation BiLock feature the clearly recognised logo and U-shaped key that now symbolise the quality which has been acknowledged by the Industry Design Council of Australia with two Australian Design Awards. This recognition is perhaps best reflected in the business growth of the Australian Lock Company.
Australian Lock Company Pty Ltd has manufactured the award winning BiLock Maximum Security locking system (now proudly referred to as First Generation BiLock) for almost two decades. Recipient of Australian Design Awards for both the Standard and Quick Change Core ranges and the Telstra & Australian Governments National Small Business of the Year and National Manufacturer of the Year Awards, the Australian Lock Company has established genuine global credibility as a lock system manufacturer of the highest quality and integrity.
Some of the innovative quality locking products and systems Australian Lock Company has developed are the First Generation and New Generation BiLock Maximum Security Locking Systems, the Armsafe range of high security gun locks, the Talon trailer lock range and the Series Six, in-line locking systems.
Australian Lock Company also proudly manufactures Binary Plus (patented until 2013) for the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia (MLAA). A revolution in maximum security key locks … the future is now with New Generation BiLock.
Australian Lock Company is proud to launch a New Generation of BiLock with additional unique qualities. True to the tradition established by First Generation BiLock, New Generation BiLock offers exceptional security and the revolutionary design features people have come to expect from this Company’s products.
The standard and QCC BiLock ranges add a new dimension to the high security lock industry in Australia and worldwide. As well as including a full range of Quick Change- Core (QCC), New Generation BiLock also features:
- A diverse and extensive product range
- New 13th locking dimension
- Attractive modern styling
- Quick and easy identification
- Colour coding options

The Company’s QCC core is a unique feature that gives the BiLock user the ability to quickly and rapidly secure any compromised area, for example, where an employee loses a key. The QCC interchangeable core can be easily removed, recombined and reinstalled in seconds. The Company has a patent over this feature, valid through until 2017 which means that only Australian Lock Company can offer this innovative feature to its customers.
