WHAT IS A MASTER KEY SUITE ?
Master key suites and master key systems are two separate terms that describe this kind of security key system. A master key system enables a suite of locks to be constructed in a specific way, enabling different user access levels to various locks.
The master keyed locks can be applied to different doors, cupboards, gates, garages or sheds. In fact, anywhere that requires a lock could, in essence, have a master keyed lock installed.
Master key systems can be adopted in a wide selection of premises from hospitals, offices, school’s, nursing homes and many other circumstances where regulating access into rooms or areas is required.
Each door will have its own separate key. But, only the master key can open them all, giving controlled access within the premises.
Having the master key not only means you don’t have to carry around a whole bunch of keys for separate doors, but it also means there’s less of a risk of losing a key.
Many people find the concept of a master keys suite confusing, so as we are a helpful bunch, you can see some of the most common examples below.
If however, you need a little extra support, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
GRANDMASTER KEY-SYSTEMS WEST LONDON
In this circumstance, the grand master key will unlock all locks in the system. Still, below this level, the system has been split into two separate subgroups.
Master key 1 will only open the locks that fall under its control without opening any configured to master key 2 and vice versa. This can be extended to more than two separate groups if needed, which can be highly beneficial in a large office block scenario where more than two independent groups are required, perhaps for respective departments in the building. The different key is the base level key. This will only provide access to its assigned lock.
MASTER KEY SYSTEMS WEST LONDON
In this second case, the master key will unlock all of the locks in the system. The various keys (base keys) will only operate their individual lock. This possibility is practical for small businesses, offices or even small guest house premises.
As long as you do not circulate a grand master key to any unapproved person. If a key is misplaced or missing, the lock can be re-pinned to the subsequent possible combination very swiftly to defend the admittance to your premises.
COMMON CYLINDER KEY-SYSTEMS WEST LONDON
The third illustration reveals a system that is recognised as a central locking or common cylinder system. The main cylinder is constructed to enable all individual keys to work their own lock and operate the central or common cylinder.
You can also include a master key within this system to permit access to all doors by a single key if needed.
This is a beneficial system for any small building that may have a communal door such as a block of flats or a small office location where all inhabitants must have passage into the property but can only access their own flat or office.
KEYED ALIKE SYSTEMS WEST LONDON
A Keyed alike setup cannot actually be named a master key system as it has no master key or any individual differ keys.
It is essentially a collection of cylinders that can be of all the same variety as shown or combined profiles and sizes of cylinder or padlock that have been constructed using the identical combination.
This means only one key is needed to unlock all the locks that have been created..
