Skeleton Key Systems
Skeleton Keys are actually called Master Keys & only work in the "all keyed differently" Suite of locks to which they are assigned. Keys for this Suite are made in a hierarchy to form a key based Access Control system, at the bottom of which are the single door keys. Master Keys which open more than one lock are made according to the customer order & will open whichever locks they are supposed to. Suites can span whole buildings, complexes & branch networks. The "Skeleton Key" therefore is only the Big Boss Master Key, set to open every door in a security suite. Building Managers can have a key to open every door in one building, floor managers can have a key to open all the locks on one floor. personnel requiring access to just a couple of locks in a whole suite can have a key for just that. Most security Suites use a certain shape of key, different from most on the market called a Registered Blank. When someone tries to have a key copied the Suite Holder is contacted to ensure security. No copies can be made without the express permission from the Suite Holder. Please call us on York 623108 to discuss your security requirements, we will be pleased to help.
