Key alike in Mijas
If you want your locks to work off one key, we can key all of your locks alike, meaning one key for an infinite number of locks. Your locks must be the same make and key style for this option to work. If you require additional information on our specialist keying alike services, you can get in touch with our team today, or read on to find out more.
What Is Key alike in Mijas ?
Basically, keying alike means that locks in a set or a ‘suite’ have the same key code. I.e. any key fits any lock. This is very convenient when a large number of locks are to be used by the same group of people, but can be a real problem if individual security is important to the users. For example, keying alike can be used on locks for filing cabinets, or front and back doors. Keying alike is the complete opposite of ‘keyed to differ’ locks, which all open with separate keys.
Why Is Key alike in Mijas Useful?
Keying alike is useful for a number of reasons, which is why we’ve decided to outline them below. Keying alike is useful because:
- You can have multiple locks in the same door and not have to worry about finding the right key for the right lock.
- You can also have 1 key to open every single lock that you have.
- It will save you a lot of money on spare keys! If your locks weren’t keyed alike and you needed spare keys for five or six different locks, it could cost you a lot of money. With all of your locks keyed alike, you need just one key and you’ll also have a spare for every single lock!
One of the core values and most important attributes of Albany Lock & Security is our ability to supply and install high quality Master Key Systems for its clients.
A simple example a key system
The client has a Master key that works all locks. Next there is a managers key that operates all locks except the director’s office. A staff key only opens the front door and the lunch room and finally the cleaners key opens everything but the Records Store.
A master key system can be as simple or complex as required.
