Architectural Design Hardware in association with Action Lock Service offer the following keying services to clients:

Keying Alike (KA)

Keying Alike allows for a number of locks to be operated by the same key.

Keyed to Differ (KD)

Keyed to differ means each lock can only be opened by its own unique key.

Construction Keying (CK)

The ADH construction key system is used to allow contractors to gain entry to a building during construction but to prevent entry by the same contractors after the building has been handed over. On completion of the building, the owners key is activated rendering the construction key inoperative and preventing further entry by the contractor.

Master Keying (MK)

Master Keying is where each lock will have its own individual key which will not operate any other locks in the system, but where all locks can be operated by the one master key.

Grand Master Keying (GMK)

Grand Master Keying is an extension of the master keyed system. Each lock has its own individual key however the locks are divided into two or more groups. Each lock group is operated by a master key, and the entire system is operated by one grand master key.

Maison Keying

Maison keying is widely used in apartments, flats, offices, and hotels. Each unit has its own key which will not operate the locks to another unit. The key will however, operate the locks to communal entrances and service areas such as a gym.

Restricted Keying

A restricted keying system consists of locks & keys which are on a restricted profile. A restricted system offers the same 'tree system' as a master keying system but has added security features. These profiles are protected by patent are stamped 'Do Not Duplicate' & copies can only be cut by the locksmith that created the system. This gives you security & control over who has copies of your keys & how many are given out. Having a restricted system will require having one or more authorised signatories to order keys & will require production of identification & signature of ALS register upon collection.

Security Entry Systems

Security Entry Systems come in a range of different options including electronic as well as a number of different brand restricted key profiles. All systems enable you to control access and duplication of keys.

Home Security and Keying options are an important part of your home safety. For further information talk to our sales staff or Action Lock Service, Balcatta.
