Master Key Systems are a series of locks that have been individually keyed, but are also accessible using an overriding Master Key.
The systems are hierarchical and restrict access that people have to different areas of a building. For example, a manager may be able to open all doors in a building whereas a staff member may only be able to open the front door and their office door. The following formats are available:
- Grand Master Key: Access to all locks, all departments, all sites
- Master Key: Access throughout a single building/department
- Keyed to Differ: Key Access to individual offices
In a world increasingly challenged by security threats, the need for comprehensive locking systems has become an essential requirement in virtually every market sector.
