The following pictures show the basic components of a master key system with the correct terms used.
The cylinders we use are from our High Security Locks range.
Whether you are considering just a few doors at home that would make life easier to have just 1 key to access all areas, or a large office block with 100's of doors all of these requirements can be met. We cut the keys ourselves normally on the same day as the order, so you do not have to wait weeks for additional or replacement keys, a common problem that our competitors systems suffer.
