Your Guide to Master Key Systems

How They Work

Master keys systems allow at least two keys to access the locks on your commercial property. The locks include a series of driver pins that respond differently to various keys. For instance, in a basic master key system, change keys only open certain locks on the premises; master keys are designed to open every lock. In more complex systems, you may have up to four keys — including grand and great grand master keys — that permit you to fine-tune levels of access around your building.


Rather than having to use separate keys to open individual offices, closets, conference rooms, and other spaces, use a master key for complete access to every lock on the property. You’ll be much less likely to experience lockouts and need to call a locksmith. Master key systems also allow you to restrict access to certain areas of the building, which increases security. One-key access prevents the company from having to spend money on creating duplicates for managers, janitors, and other authorized personnel.
