- Protected Section Master Keys – new keys can be cut where the originals were purchased, with documentation.
- Patented Section Master Keys – top of the range security, new keys require specialist machinery to produce and legal documentation
At Winchester Locksmiths we are equipped to supply and fit a variety of Master Key Systems, but we also offer a free survey of your existing system, helping you to expand your present system if required or replace it if necessary. Furthermore, we can invariably obtain spare keys for existing systems, including the following:
- Chubb (Medeco) M3 Master Key Systems
- Kaba pExtra Patented Cylinder
Keys for systems such as those detailed above can, more often than not, be supplied while you wait or on a same-day basis, providing that proof of proper authority can be displayed, where applicable.
Many people choose to buy master key systems from architectural ironmongers or even online. While the low cost of these systems can be attractive, customers find the aftercare to be poor. Keys are often required in a hurry and when systems are not bought from locksmiths they can take weeks to be cut and delivered.
The benefit of having a master key system with a local locksmith such as ACQ is that we carry blanks for all the systems we sell and keys can be cut while you wait. Also locks that are in need of repair can be dealt with by our staff on site, and in many cases can be ready the next day. We can also build new locks for your system as required.
