Master Key Essentials

A Mechanical Key system is foundation of a secure door opening and is the basis of a long term security solution. Mechanical Key Systems continue to advance with built in protections to prevent unauthorized duplication, pick resistant and drill resistant locks. A challenge with Mechanical Key Systems is lost or misplaced keys which in turn create a liability to the security of the building. Mechanical Keying Systems assist in these situations by limiting the potential risk when keys are lost and minimizing how many cores need to be replaced. This lowers the business exposure if employees lose individual keys and creates a safer environment. Another benefit to the Master Key system, is limiting the number of keys your security team is required to carry. The security team is able to carry one master or sub-master key which will give them access to multiple doors or even buildings without a ring carrying multiple keys. Master Key systems are designed to reduce liability & risk in your facility and increase your response to any lost keys or breaches that may appear.

Master Key Process

The Master Key process begins with a detailed review of your facility and security goals. We work with you to determine the type of cores and keys required and the grade of security necessary. The next step is to determine the permissions hierarchy for access to door openings and build out the list of Master, Sub-Master and Individual key owners. Once we have these basic information items, we involve our Master Key Engineers who build a customized keying system designed for your facility. Each master key system is designed specifically for easy expansion and scalability as your business grows.
