NEMA - The Multi-Purpose Product

We are currently experimenting with another unique product coming from that great Australian forward thinking company, HM Cowdroy.

Nema - The Multi-Purpose product is manufactured from a unique composite polymer material in a carefully controlled air injected extrusion process. The ideal applications are where weight, temperature and sound insulation, humidity and water exposure are of concern. The vast range of Nema products address these concerns and much more!

NEMA is measuring up to be a phenomenal, inexpensive product that is proving easy to work with - drill, screw, rout, nail, machine and glue. It is lightweight and strong, thermal insulating, immune to attack by insects, non-corrosive, alkaline and acid resistant.

It also offers good sound and acoustic installation.

NEMA is an excellent thermoform material. It is self-extinguishing and mould resistant.

NEMA is offering numerous surface finishing possibilities including but not limited to, water proof, can be heat formed, printable surface for use in signage applications, chemical resistant, color stable, allows laser engraving and can even be welded. We are noticing significant weather proof tendencies too.

Potential applications for this incredible product include:

Outdoor Signs
Outdoor Furniture
Concrete Formwork
Skirting, Trim and Architraves
Boxes in Wet or Outdoor Areas
Exhibition Displays
Wall Cladding (external & internal)
Wet Area Doors
Cavity and Pocket Doors
Cupboards in Wet Areas
False Ceilings
Washroom Partitions
Coolrooms & Freezers
Office Partitions
Caravans & RV's
Boating and General Marine Industry Applications.

Whether your requirements include exterior cladding, barge boards, deckings or railings, NEMA boards are extremely versatile.

Are your doors warping due to wet area exposure? Not providing adequate sound insulation? Or just too heavy for the application? Waterproof, light, sound and thermally insulating, NEMA doors provide that long awaited solution.

Reveals in wet areas are prone to cracking, swelling and warping. Not anymore thanks to NEMA with the added benefits of sound and thermal insulation and insect and vermin resistance.

The ideal sheet flooring. paneling, cladding or anywhere moisture, water and weight are problems, NEMA is the sheet material that meets these needs.

NEMA sheet and board can be finished in a variety of ways including, laminated, veneered, silk screen printed, film printed, vinyl stickers etc. It can be acryllic painted and enamel painted. (Similarly to wood, NEMA should not be painted in dark colors because exposure to high temperatures can cause expansion).

NEMA boards and sheets are easy and fast to clean with a clean and/or damp cloth. If necessary one of many common household cleaners such as glass cleaners can be used. The cleaning solution should be applied and immediately wiped dry. No cleaning solution should be left to stand on the board for an extended period.

V Lock - Why Didnt I think Of This?

This is a picture of a concept design by Junjie Zhang.

This product is designed to help everybody who fumbles to find the keyhole.

Sometimes when it's dark or when we may be a little inebriated, we may have difficulty in easily locating the keyhole to enter our key into the door.

Well, this is a problem solver isnt it?

Top 10 Searches for April 2010

This website has been very kind to me in the last few years with an average of 300-500 search hits every month since 2006. There are probably some good reasons for this luck, but I suggest it is likely because of the significant amount of original content included here-in.

I have decided to try to include a monthly post highlighting the 10 most popular searched for terms that led viewers to this site.

These search results are gathered from my Google Analytics reports.

As you can see, there are significant numbers of searches for keyword terms surrounding keyed pocket door locks.

Our Cowdroy P697 Pocket Door Lock with Key, is proving (not surprisingly) popular in it's genre.

Other popular keyword search terms in the past month, include Schlage Securekey Problems.

Schlage Securekey is a new product recently released by Schlage in answer to and to compete with Kwikset's Smart-Key product line. The widespread discussion and marketplace concern about the lock bumping phenomenon, has forced some lock manufacturers to update their product designs.

We have been conducting our own tests of the Schlage Securekey product and anticipate presenting some interesting findings in the not too distant future.

Strikemaster II seems to be continuing it's popularity in searched for terms. The product is beautifully designed to prevent door frame casing failure, effectively preventing the most common break-in method of door kick-ins.

Expect to see more articles about the popular searched for keyword phrases in upcoming posts.

Danny was very professional and friendly at the same time. He not only gave me the quote and fixed the exterior door and explained his work. He was prompt and upfront about the work and did the work. He came in time took care of it on the same day. (Sasheethn K St Louis MO) June 2018d out problems but assured not urgent. Please feel free to have Danny pass out my number for my total experience review 314-351-5553

Charlie M. (St Louis, MO) November 2015

Danny was pleasure to meet and was very knowledgable. He explained several lock replacement options but I decided none of them were a good fit for a storm door, however, I did replace a lock on my entry door with a type of lock I had never seen before. I would highly recommend this company.
Patricia J (Bridgeton, MO) March 2014
They were prompt and showed up when he said he would show up. He knew his stuff. I had ordered new handles and he was honest enough to say that we don't need them that he can fix the doors and he did. Made me lock and unlock my doors to his satisfaction so that I knew what to do. Am very, very pleased with the service and cost.
Joyce K (Glencoe, MO) May 2015

Showed up on time for appointment. Was very knowledgeable about the project and offered a solution beyond what I asked to be done.
Stephen G (Chesterfield, MO) May 2015

Daniel was right on time, assessed the problems I had with two doors, made the repairs, and explained what caused the problems to begin with .... He is a "door expert" and a true professional. I highly recommend him.

Vince V (St. Louis MO) May, 2015

Danny was fabulous! He went over my concerns and he provided me with more than a fair quote. He was there when he said he was going to be there. I would highly recommend Danny. Cheers!
Denise S (Imperial, MO) May 8, 2014

Hired Danny to re-key locks on "new" house purchase. He advised to replace with new deadbolts & door knobs on 3 entry doors instead which I agreed with. All doors have 1 matching key & the safety of excellent quality product & workmanship. He also added new strike plate to door frame to complete project.. I recommend as your 1st & only call to a Locksmith.

Denise F (St. Louis, MO) April 3, 2014

Danny was very helpful in solving a pretty complex problem involving many lock.
Scott C (Eureka, MO) March 27, 2014

Needed patio door track to run smoothly. Arrived early, fixed door and explained what he was doing during repair. Quick and easy. Door works great, my wife will now speak to me, and I've become a better dancer.

Mike W. (Arnold/Oakville MO) July 2013

The owner spent a longtime with me on the phone helping diagnosis the problem. He was on-time, friendly and helped resolve my issue. I will definitely use him again!

Chris C (Lake St Louis, MO) July 2013

I had a very pleasant experience with Master Key Systems. They came out, did the job (which took longer than expected) and they did not change the price they quoted me. Now, I am not certain that it was a great value for the money because I don't have a comparison, but they did what they said, when they said, for the price they said. Enough said!!!

Antonio B (Saint Louis, Missouri) March 2013

Professional.. Upfront about charges. Fixed the sticky door within 20 minutes. I will recommend Master Key for exterior door issues.
Muthu R (Ballwin, MO) July 2012

Danny was a master craftsman, knowledgable and professional. I will be calling on him again in the future as well as passing on his services to friends and family.

Marsha L (Saint Louis, MO) July 2012

Danny was excellent! I called him on a Monday to fix a sliding glass door. He happened to have the exact part we needed (and it was not an easy find - we had looked everywhere) and he came over Tuesday evening. He stayed until 8:00 until the job was done, and cleaned up afterwards. He was courteous, professional, and efficient! I could not be happier!

Rachel P Maryland Heights, MO (July 2012)

He did an excellent job. Got there on time and quickly solved the issue. Was very pleasant and explained the situation and how to keep the door from sticking in the future. Would definitely use Master Key LLC again!

Neil F. (Saint Louis, MO) April 2012

Danny was very friendly and knowledgeable, although his apprentice seemed to do most of the work, Danny kept an eye on him to make sure it was done right. He had very reasonable pricing for re-keying.
Greg D (St Louis, MO) October 2011

He was extrememly fabulous and helpful and did a wonderful job. He was very professional.
Shannon M. (Arnold, MO) October 2011

Growing up spending so much of my time in Italy, the uniqueness of the Nova Classico left quite an impression on me. To be able to have and enjoy them in my own home here in the states is a nostalgic indulgence I'm enjoying beyond words. Thank you Danny for coordinating this transaction.

Joseph M (Chicago, IL) September 2011

great job. hired on the spot and he did job right then at great price

Ron B (Arnold, MO) July 2011

I searched the internet and found your services. I received three phone calls within several days. A service call was scheduled. Two gentlemen arrived promptly, analyzed the problem and fixed it.
James & Florenc M Saint Louis, MO July 2011

The repairman was on time and did an excellent job of fixing a very stubborn door lock. He was persistent and cleaned up the work area afterwards. I would use this service again.

Brenda F (Saint Peters, MO) June 2011

Danny at Master Key Systems has succeeded in making the purchasing of our Meroni door locks, from Italy, an absolute breeze. Even though I live in Australia with a 16hr time difference and was ordering door knobs from Italy that weren't in stock, the whole process was faultless. Danny was prompt and efficient with all his emails and made sure we had covered every possible variable so that the product I received was exactly as required. I would have no hesitation in recommending Danny for your next purchase.
Patrick Carr (Canberra, Australia)

Your product really helped because I needed to secure a nurse's station adjacent to a waiting room and needed a pocket door. Unfortunately, no real options were available to lock a pocket door effectively that would keep me compliant with HIPAA and secure an area that stores medical supplies. This was vitally important as this particular waiting room was for "waiting detox patients". Thank you very much.
Randall R The Fritz Clinic (Birmingham, Al) March 2011

Danny was very polite and knew what the problem was and how to fix it. He also gave me some information about other issues that could arise with my door and locks. Will hire again if I ever need that type of work done.
Jason M Imperial, MO March 2011

I had an exterior basement door that dragged when opening and closing. The hinges were not fitting properly and the door frame had shifted, probably due to the age of the house.The screwswould not go far enough into the wall without hitting stone...even using a special drill bit. Dan worked a long time drilling and sanding to shore up the door as best as possible. I know it will never be perfect. He could have easily sold me a new door and the same issue would happen. He was honest, thorough, and did an excellent job without charging me a fortune. I'm satisfied with the door now. If you want an honest, experienced man, Then Dan is the man

Roger M Saint Louis, MO March 2011

I purchased the Cowdroy P697 Pocket door lock with key over the internet. I emailed questions before my purchase and was provided with the answers quickly by return email. The purchase was quick and easy and the lock was shipped immediatly. Installation is quick and easy. But you do need to convert millimeters to inches (use the internet) in the installation instructions. And the lock looks great and works great. I will do business with them again. THANK YOU
