Locks / Master Keying

Master Keying and Master Keyed Systems Terminology

What is Master keying?

Master Keying is where a series of locks works with individual keys but is also accessible using a Master Key. A hierarchical system of locks and keys are provided giving individual access to offices or areas to authorised key holders only.

For example: The Managing Director has access to all offices but the Sales Manager may only access certain areas and be restricted from others.

Typical uses for this system are office suites, tenanted properties or other venues where individual security is required but access for cleaner / security / caretaker/manager is also required. Common cylinders can also be produced so individual users can have a key that will open a communal door but then only operate the door to their residence.
