Locking systems and door closers in Vienna

Locking systems for more comfort

A master key system is a locking system consisting of several cylinder locks in which each cylinder is individually adjusted. Unlike ordinary keyed alike locking systems, you can determine which key opens which lock. Thus, in addition to a general key that opens all cylinders, there are also individually set keys that only open certain cylinders.

In practice, the situation is as follows: You own a hotel with a total of 10 doors, each of which you can open with a master key. This includes your office with a money safe, which no one but you may enter. Your hotel also has a breakfast room and 8 rooms for guests. In this case each guest needs an individual key for the booked room. There is also a key for the cleaning lady, who is allowed to enter all rooms of the guests, and a key for the cook, who unlocks the breakfast room every morning. So to avoid carrying 10 keys with you when you want to open one of the doors, your hotel needs a locking system. For larger properties such as office buildings with several employees, a locking system is standard. But also in the private sector, locking systems are becoming more and more important.

A door closer is a door fitting which is responsible for a safe and above all, automatic closing of a door. This means that thanks to the door closer the door closes automatically, without the need for any manual intervention. In this way the door closer supports the door in its original purpose, which is to allow entry, exit and passage. Today, there are a whole range of door closer types that fulfil their task with different closing mechanisms.

 

Examples for locking systems

Another practical example: You have a detached house with 5 doors, consisting of an apartment door, cellar door, workshop, garden house and storage room. Besides your wife, two children and two cats live in your house. Good news is that the cats do not need keys, but your children and wife do. You have fixed rules in the house - the children have no business in the workshop and cellar, as they can fall down the stairs in the dark. So that you and your wife do not have to carry five keys on your key ring, you decide to install a small locking system. You also want to have another key made for the cleaning lady so that she has access to the cellar, summer house and storage room.

By the way, locking systems can be used not only with typical double profile cylinders and half cylinders. Most systems include padlocks and various cabinet and letterbox locks. With these, very different ideas can be realised and the idea of simplifying everyday life comes ever closer. A locking system will therefore become more and more important in the future, not only in commercial use.

Especially the master key must be protected against the simple key duplication. Because if you leave your key unattended, it can quickly fall into the wrong hands. In the best case, the culprit should not be able to do anything with the key.

In other words, the copying of the key after impression must be completely prevented, but also the creation of so-called copies after universal blanks must be excluded. There are several points you should pay attention to when you decide on a system.

If you want to rely on truly copy-protected keys, we recommend a few models of locking cylinders of the highest security class. These usually cost more, but offer breathtaking technology and extremely high security. For example, the keys are equipped with a particularly heavy 3D profile that cannot be captured by conventional copying machines.

Some manufacturers go one step further and use additional protective mechanisms that are technically almost impossible to copy, such as magnetic disks, floating disks, floating rings and many more.

Technical progress never stands still and therefore it is actually possible nowadays to scan most keys of a locking system and cut them into a universal blank. Of course, such a duplicate does not replace the original key, but can function as a normal key. For the user this of course has several clear advantages, for you as the owner of the system it is a catastrophe.

Most systems of a locking system are equipped with a security card. This is issued per locking system or per group and only with this card can duplicate keys be made directly by the manufacturer. This ensures that the keys can only be obtained in this way.

So you can be sure that your tenant or employee will not make any further unauthorized copies of the apartment key. But is it really true? Are the keys equipped with a security card really uncopyable?
