Master Keyed Systems - Independent Cardiff Locksmith

Master Keyed suits are very common in certain areas as this give protection between people allocated a area with there own specific lock but gives someone in charge to get access to the whole suite of locks which the master key rules over.  Master keyed Locks can be fitted anywhere but are only common on cylinder lock such as the Rim, Euro and Oval Cylinders.

Master Keyed Suites works by having as many locks as you require with each lock having its own personalised keys which don't work on any one of the other locks within the suite but then having a Master Key which will over rule any one of the lock and allow them to Lock and Unlock.

This design works incredibly well for franchise shops, landlords and most over business which have more than one allocated premises. James Cardiff Locksmith can talk you through all the requirements and  information about these locks. One question which often comes up is that normal locking systems which get fitted do not show being of high quality against attacks and answer to this is that due to the prices of the systems people often don't like to pay the cost of the more highly rated locks but are very worth while if you do decide to have these fitted to a franchise of shops or business' due to the importance and cost of valuable items stored within the building.

If you do decide a Master Keyed system is right for you and shortly afterwards you need a new lock for another premises which is yours, We can arrange for another lock to be made and still work with the Master Key over-ruling the lock this can be great due to the fact that new business premises can still be managed by the same Master Key.

There are also a range of over systems which are electronic which James Cardiff Locksmith supply and fit. These electronic systems which with the same principal as manual operating keys but instead of a normal cylinder key you would either have a fob or a key card. These systems many used for hospitals, schools and other large premises.  Electronic systems has many great feature over key operated Master Keyed systems such as 

  • Locks don't have to be changed if Card is lost 
  • Can specify time and date which card can only be used 
  • Key is a lot lighter and of less cost
  • A person in charge of the admin can add and delete cards from the system with no skills and of little knowledge
