A Masterkey System is a key plan which allows a key or set of keys to provide specific access to a number of pre-defined doors. The System functions like a hierarchy providing access to different key holders such as building owners, facilities managers or members of staff. A system like this ensures greater control and convenience as it provides quick access to all rooms, saves key replacement costs and increases safety as management and security staff can access any room if required. At DOM UK our dedicated partner network of security professionals is on hand to create a system tailor fit to suit your needs.
There are many considerations when designing a Masterkey system but whatever the size and nature of the project, the DOM UK Master keying department will ensure that a clear and concise solution is reached.
To get you started DOM UK offer a free design tool called DOMXL. DOMXL is a Microsoft Excel document with additional functionality available to all DOM dealers which allows both simple and complex Masterkey charts to be designed with ease.
The platform was developed in-house and has been produced with the requirements of building owners in mind, providing customers with optimum support, providing the basis of a Masterkey plan a detailed insight into cost-efficiency. The program is customer-oriented, simple and easy to use.
Small to medium-sized businesses' access to all areas is often restricted to a select number of individuals. A Masterkey system will allow access to every cylinder within the system, which is highly convenient for a Managing Director or an Executive as they then have access to any area within the building. For added convenience, Masterkey systems can also incorporate our office furniture locks and other industrial application locks.
A Grand Masterkey System is mostly implemented in large organisations, clear and well-defined structures are essential. On the top level of the system, head of departments and managers may require unrestricted access to large areas of the building. On the middle levels, management and small teams require access to only certain areas. On the bottom level employees will need access to their particular office or working area.
As an example there are generally three levels that exist within a typical GMK:
Each cylinder will then also have its own differ key which will be used by the person who works in that particular room or office.
Common Entrance Systems are normally used in blocks of rented apartments and halls of residence, individuals must be able to unlock one or more main access doors without direct access to neighbouring apartments. Keys can also be issued that allow access only to common entrances. This can be suitable for maintenance companies or milkmen needing access to building corridors. Common entrance cylinders can be incorporated as part of a master key system.
