Restricted key systems
Standard keys can be duplicated anywhere without your permission or knowledge, so how can you be sure the keys to your business are the only ones? That's where restricted keys come in.
Restricted keys are designed to have a unique shape which prevents unauthorized duplication without permission from the system owner or authorised persons. This means you can issue keys to tenants, employees or guests and be safe in the knowledge that when they return the keys to you, there have not been any unauthorised copies made.
BLA can help you choose the best restricted system to suit your application and needs. We’ll keep detailed records of all keys and authorised signatories in a secure environment to ensure that you can have total confidence and key control.
Are you tired of trying to keep track of multiple keys for you business or facility? Is it a nightmare trying to keep track of which of your contractors or staff members has access to what areas of your business or facility? If you've answered yes to any of these questions then a master key system designed and installed by BLA locksmiths is a great way of controlling access to your home, business or office. A master key system installed in conjunction with a restricted or registered key profile will provide simple, secure and controlled access to your building or facilities.
What is a master key system?
Master keying is a modification of the internal workings of a lock which then allows more than one key with different cuts to operate in the same lock. A qualified Locksmith can design a master key system to allow one key to open every lock in a building but also restrict access to certain locks with certain keys. With the use of Master, Sub-Master and Change keys Locksmiths are able to design a system with tiered levels of security, giving the customer better control over who has access to which areas, floors or doors.
A master key system can help to control access to much more than just standard door locks. The ability to incorporate padlocks, gate locks, Auto doors, Truck Air and hydraulic line locks, even key switches to isolate or control plant and equipment. A master key system is a vital part of any facilities OHS and security plan.
Having a master key system installed is a great way of controlling and simplifying access to your building. However it's important to choose the right locksmiths to install the Master key system for you. If the system has not been designed or planned correctly you may well end up with a glitchy, difficult to use and understand system that does not allow for any future expansion. To avoid this headache BLA Locksmiths has provided a short checklist.
- Has it been designed by a qualified technician?
- Have you been provided a key matrix chart? (chart displaying which keys access which doors).
- Is it simple to understand and follow?
- Is it being installed using a restricted key system?
- Is there room for expansion?
- How are keys going to be tracked once the system is installed?
Once you have a well thought out and designed master key system installed it's important to maintain a high level of control over who has what key. While this can be done manually with a key register book for small facilities and businesses, larger plants and facilities use key control software packages to keep track of which staff member or contractor has which key.
The team at BLA locksmiths will design a master key system to suit any situation, combined with the use of electronic key cabinets and control software our team will not only keep your building secure but provide ease of access to your staff and contractors.
