Restricted Master Key Systems
Many businesses large and small employ a number of staff who will require access to different areas of their workplace without restricting them from going about their job. This will entail them holding a key to access these certain areas. At Abbott’s we can tailor a master key system where as each member of your team can go to certain areas he/she is supposed to, but restricting them from going to areas where they are not authorised to enter.
This can all be done by the use of only 1 key per employee. In addition to this we can have a master key working all doors so as your supervisor can gain uninterrupted access. This is what is known as master-keying. A simple way to visualise this form of keying is by the tree below.
After designing a system to suit your business you then want to be sure that you have complete control over all of the keys you issue. If you use a “standard” household key your employee can quite easily have keys duplicated off his copy, therefore jeopardising the security of your workplace as these keys can be handed out among friend’s etc.
To control this Abbotts can install your master key system in a “restricted” form which basically means that duplication of your keys can not proceed without a letter of consent coming from yourself or chosen members of your team. All our restricted master key systems are computer generated and maintained so as we have a complete history of when the installation took place and how many keys are issued and who at what date they were ordered.
At Abbotts we have over 2000 restricted master key systems in use today with many large corporations and companies heading up our banner so if you have a company or business and you’re looking to go that extra step with security within your firm then give the team at Abbotts a call and one of the friendly staff will help you with any enquires you may have. We will also happily come to your business obligation free, to discuss further with you the advantages of this form of security.

What is SCEC Endorsement?
Through a close association with SCEC (Security Construction & Equipment Committee), the Australian Governments official protective security adviser, First Generation BiLock was developed to a stage where the mechanism of Bilock security was endorsed and as such, all cylinders in the BiLock Standard and Quick Change Core ranges are endorsed in the SCEC security categories for key-operated locks.
The Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) is a standing interdepartmental committee responsible for administrative and physical security matters. The Security Construction and Equipment Committee is responsible for evaluation and endorsement of security equipment for use by Australian Commonwealth Departments and Agencies.
The Security Equipment Catalogue (SEC) lists products which meet strict testing requirements and relevant SCEC standards. The Catalogue’s purpose is to assist agency security and government accredited technical staff to select appropriate products in support of security installations.
We are proud to produce what is, to our knowledge, the only Australian designed and manufactured lock cylinders to achieve these levels of endorsement.
