Master Key Systems
Halls of Cambridge possesses a wealth of experience of implementing high security secure master key systems into commercial premises. The benefit of a masterkey system is that one key can open every lock in the system, whilst others will have limited access.
Halls of Cambridge have supplied and fitted Master key systems for Schools, Hospital’s, Colleges, University’s, Hotels, and Offices, Apartment blocks, Factories and even private homes.
There are three different kinds of Master Key Systems, each with a different level of security:
- Open Section Master Keys – these look like normal keys and can be cut anywhere
- Protected Section Master Keys – new keys can be cut where the originals were purchased, with documentation
- Patented Section Master Keys – top of the range security, new keys require specialist machinery to produce and legal documentation
At Halls, we are equipped to supply and fit a variety of Master Key Systems, but we also offer a free survey of your existing system, helping you to expand your present system if required or replace it if necessary. Furthermore, we can invariably obtain spare keys for existing systems, including the following:
- Mul-T-Lock Master Key Systems
- Chubb (Medeco) M3 Master Key Systems
- Kaba pExtra Patented Cylinder
- Squire Stronghold Protected Section
- Assa Abloy
Keys for systems such as those detailed above can, more often than not, be supplied while you wait or on a same-day basis, providing that proof of proper authority can be displayed, where applicable.
Many people choose to buy master key systems from architectural ironmongers or even online. While the low cost of these systems can be attractive, customers find the aftercare to be poor. Keys are often required in a hurry and when systems are not bought from locksmiths they can take weeks to be cut and delivered.
The benefit of having a master key system with a local locksmith such as Halls is that we carry blanks for all the systems we sell and keys can be cut while you wait. Also locks that are in need of repair can be dealt with by our staff on site, and in many cases can be ready the next day. We can also build new locks for your system as required.
If you are seeking a new Master Key System, require an expansion of your existing system or simply require new keys, contact Halls of Cambridge for a speedy, efficient and cost-effective level of service – we pride ourselves on exceeding the expectations of our customers.
