Want keys cut for a master key suite?
We look at the markings on the key or lock to determine the original supplier/manufacturer (if it's not LOCKFiX24), to see whether they’re still in production. You could either go directly to the original manufacturer, or supply us with a letter of authority from an authorised signatory so we can order replacements.
Master Key Terminology - what it means:
- Keyed to differ: Individually keyed locks that can only be opened by its own key
- Keyed Alike: A number of locks can be operated by the same key, i.e. one key to open your front and back door, businesses may want just one key to open security shutters, gates as well as front and back doors.
- Master Keyed: Each lock has its own individual key which will not operate in any other lock, however all locks can be operated by a single key, usually held by the owner, or a key holder/security guard – this is the Master Key. Master key suites can be extremely beneficial to landlords who own several multiple occupancy properties, allowing them to access all rooms and all properties with a single key
At LOCKFiX24 we can design and install master key suites to your exact requirements, these can be supplied on an open profile key, allowing anybody to obtain duplicate keys, or on a restricted profile, allowing only authorised persons to obtain duplicates.
