Master Key System

Master Key System Introduction

A Master Key System is where a single key can unlock all the doors within a building. Cylinder locks are the best option for single or multiple key access with tiered levels of access. A basic system is where a single Master Key opens all cylinder locks. In addition, each door can be unlocked by its key, often referred to as the slave or differ key.

A Master Key System will allow you to create a suite of locks wth varying access levels for different key holders. For example, the master key will open all locks, whilst other keys will only open selected locks, depending on the access requirements.

High Security Custom Master Key Systems

With a patent protected key profile giving you control over who can get keys copied, this is a highly recommended solution for master-key systems. If you're looking to build a master key system for external use or internal use where high security is required, these are the cylinders you need to be looking at for your master key system. A significant advantage of these is the patent-protected key profile stopping users from getting ANY keys copied without your prior approval!

Landlords and Hotel owners

Having an effective master-key system in place is essential for productivity, ease of access, and ultimately peace of mind. For example, landlords and owners of HMO's want to unlock doors within properties without finding and carrying each key. Master keys give the freedom to always have access, without having to take bunches of keys, or worse, arriving to see you have brought the wrong key! For Hotel or B&B owners, having the ability to distribute master keys to staff such as cleaners or maids to carry out routine cleaning or provide room service means that your team can be more efficient.

Our master key system comprises a rim night latch, complete with three unique keys. In addition, a cylinder pull for the outside, which surrounds the cylinder for a clean finish whilst providing finger-pull functionality to pull the door closed. You can order one or as many master keys as you wish as part of your order.

Master Keyed Ultion Lock

Ultion Locks

The lock provided is an Ultion night latch. It comes with its relevant keep for the door frame and has a holdback snib to keep the door 'off the latch'. We've chosen the Ultion specifically due to its suitability as part of a master key system. It does not allow the occupant to deadlock the latch using the snib to prevent entry with the master key.

Ultion lock Cylinders

Ultion lock cylinders offer standard key operation, supplied with a set of three standard keys per lock. Each cylinder will have unique keys, whilst all of the master keys ordered will, of course, unlock each Ultion cylinder.
