The new master key system consolidated the total number of keys required to operate the facility. Rather than having different keys for every door, they were able to use management keys to open whole groupings of doors. Per customer request, these keys were sorted by function, floor, and management division. RA-Lock used Medeco X4 SFIC on the exterior, since they already had SFIC cores in place. We provided a key matrix outlining which keys are designated for each area, and key stamping with assigned numbers.
The customer also utilizes a key box so keys are checked in and out of the facility. Exterior keys are only authorized for senior management, per customer request. This is a complete solution for the customer’s facility with room for expansion and the ability to add more facilities to the same system.
The goal was achieved. Every key is always accounted for.
