Easily Duplicated

The lack of adequate key control is a hidden risk, and one of the biggest risks that many businesses face, if you cannot account for who has keys to your property, if you don’t control who is authorized to have duplicates made, then you don’t know who has access to that property.

Key Control System Features.

  • Key control systems allow you to know which keys to which doors are issued to which employees.

  • Using a patent controlled key system secures against unauthorized key duplication.

  • When an employee leaves the company, and you get the keys backs, your key control system is still secure. Not having to re-key your property is a cost savings.

What kinds of systems are available, and what risks are present?

  • Generic cylinders and keys with a well-controlled master key system – cylinders could be vulnerable to picking and/or lock bumping – unauthorized key duplication may be possible, making it hard to know where all keys are.

  • IC Core cylinders and keys – cylinders could be vulnerable to picking and/or lock bumping – unless you have a patented key system, unauthorized key duplication may be possible.

  • Patent or contract controlled keys – unauthorized key duplication should not be a risk – cylinders could still be vulnerable to picking and/or lock bumping.

  • High security cylinders without patented or contract controlled keys – unauthorized duplication should be rare, however it is possible – picking, lock bumping, drilling, wrenching attacks not likely.

  • High security cylinders with patented or contract controlled keys – unauthorized duplication if done can be prosecuted – picking, lock bumping, drilling, wrenching attacks not likely. Cylinders and keys are are only supplied to contracted dealers, who are required by contract to store them in a secure environment at every level.

  • Eliminate keys and go to a full electronic access control system.

High Security Lock & Key Systems

  • Most key control systems utilize patented keys and or cylinders, because they are patented, the duplication of keys can only be done by factory authorized professional locksmiths.

  • The key blanks and lock cylinders are made available only to those same factory authorized professional locksmiths.

  • The control can be at the locksmith dealer level, at the distributor level, or at the manufacturer level.

All high security key control systems require specific permission to have keys originated or duplicated. This procedure means that the owner will always know who has keys and how many. If an employee leaves and you get the keys back, you can be reasonably assured that no copies of your keys are floating around.

There are many brands of high security locks in the marketplace most meet or exceed UL® 437 specifications, the standard for patent controlled key systems, all are constructed of superior metals and feature a higher security locking system that resists picking, drilling, cutting, wrenching or almost any kind of attack. They are not cheap, however they will last for a long time. Your Professional Locksmith can guide you to the correct product for your situation.
