The benefits of a Restricted Key System
Here are the 5 main benefits of having a restricted key system.
YOUR LOCKS WILL BE MORE SECURE WITH A RESTRICTED KEY SYSTEM
The keys in a restricted key system are unique in their design, are patent protected, and can only be copied by authorised people. This eliminates the security headaches caused by stolen, lost and unauthorised copying that can happen with a standard key system.
YOU’LL HAVE MORE ACCESS AND CONTROL OF YOUR SECURITY DOOR SYSTEM
Restricted key systems can be customised to allow various levels of accessibility to individual key holders, including a universal master key. This way you’ll have peace of mind knowing exactly who has access to areas of your business at all times.
YOU’LL HAVE AN ACCURATE RECORD OF YOUR KEYS
Putting our clients first, we guarantee your safety – we keep detailed records of your restricted key system, so you’ll always know how many copies have been cut, when, and who gave the authorisation.
YOUR LOCKS WILL BE FAR MORE DIFFICULT TO PICK WITH A RESTRICTED KEY SYSTEM

Restricted Key Systems guarantee that your keys cannot be duplicated without your consent. They provide secure access to buildings with multiple areas and entry points. You decide who has access where, while every key can be traced to its holder and to the individual lock it activates.
