What Are Master Key Systems?
A master system is a key plan where specific keys can unlock several doors. Businesses and institutions often use them to ensure all or most doors can be opened by a responsible person, such as a caretaker or manager.
In a standard lock system, there are two sets of pins that raise when pushed against by the right key. A master has an additional pin that can open all doors using the same system.
Efficient and Versatile
Having a master system installed is convenient and efficient. Instead of carrying a large ring of keys around, business owners and other responsible people can use one to unlock all or most of the doors on their premises.
These systems are easy to use because one key can unlock everything, so responsible employees have swift access to a range of areas. This convenient system also has benefits over a digital system as a power-outage won’t affect it.
Landlords can use master systems to gain access to properties if their tenants have lost their keys. An additional benefit in this situation is that the lock can be re-keyed rather than replacing the whole thing, and your master will still work.
