Many homes, and especially businesses, look for key control to offer more protection. Simply stamping “Do Not Duplicate” on a key is not enough. Unfortunately these words stamped on an ordinary key to an ordinary lock, don’t prevent a copy. Many locksmith companies will duplicate such keys if the person is willing to sign a simple form stating that they have the authority to do so. To ensure that no keys will be issued except to the registered owners of the system, we provide patent protected key systems, high security locks and cylinders and True Key Control systems and today, we at First Lock & Security Technologies would like to further discuss this subject.
High Security Door Keys & Locks
Being that the distribution is controlled by the manufacturer and not available to the key duplication market, sophisticated high security locks are engineered with additional locking features that are required to activate in stages of precise movement, timing and accuracy by unique patented keys. To qualified professional locksmiths via contractual agreements, one type of patent protects the physical design and actual function of the key in a high security lock, others protect the right to manufacture and distribute keys. In addition to the actual function of the key operating the lock, the design of the blank key is patented. Aggressively protecting their investments in courts, the design of the blank key as well as the actual function of the key operating the lock is patented. Companies invest very large sums of money to design, patent, manufacture and control distribution of high security locks and keys.
Key Blanks from Manufacturer & Other Key Control Procedures
In order to provide our customers with true and absolute key control, we receive key blanks directly from the manufacturer to provide to our customers. Hardware stores or other locksmiths do not have access to these keys. To guarantee that no unauthorized keys will be released, experts will establish procedures and strict controls via a signature verification process. The only people who can receive keys are those authorized whose name and signature are on the registry. There is no need to rekey the locks saving time and money for the business owner since employers issue keys to employees and are guaranteed that no duplicates can be obtained if the employee is dismissed or leaves employment and the key is returned. Condominiums and apartments with common entry doors and facilities like pools and exercise rooms that are secured and restricted to use by residents are another popular use of key control.
