Why High Security?

A well designed high-security master key system is essential to ensure an organisation has the desired level of security without compromising or disturbing the buildings functionality. Master keying systems allow different levels of access whilst reducing the risks involved with issuing a large number of keys. These systems are common within, though not restricted to government buildings, casinos, universities, hospitals, and any other organisation that require the most effective security possible.

A high-security rating requires certain standard design features, options, methods of construction, and production and distribution controls that must be incorporated into the products. These features will make the lock more difficult to penetrate compromise or open than a conventional lock.

ALC’s range of high quality products which are renowned in the market place include BiLock Exclusive, BiLock, Galaxy, ALCO 5000 Stainless Steel Mortice Locks, Series Six In-Line Systems and Talon Trailer Locks.
