Restricted and Registered Key Systems

Most manufacturing companies and industry suppliers provide a range of restricted or registered key systems. They are available in various configurations and in varying security levels.

Restricted systems are generally used to secure or control the issue of keys in a domestic, commercial and institutional situation, and for anyone wishing to have peace of mind or control over the quantity of keys issued.

A restricted or registered key system is one in which there is a patent or design registration covering part or all of the key system. A design registration usually covers the keys profile or grooves in the side of the key and a patent generally covers the mechanical aspect of how the system works. A system with a patent is generally of higher cost and quality than just a design registered system.

A restricted or registered key system provides control for the owner or manager of the system by restricting the availability to all keys to only those nominated or authorised to order keys.

This could be a multi level master key system where certain personnel within the organisation are permitted to only order specific keys or higher level keys may require more than one person to authorise additional keys.

Restricted or registered keys can also be used by property owners or managers to prevent unauthorised duplication of apartment or house keys, thus providing a clear register of how many keys have been issued at any one time.

Restricted or registered key systems are available with varying and different security features, from the basic pin tumbler system commonly used on front door deadlocks to high security pick proof, bump proof, pull and drill resistant mechanisms.

As a rule the more expensive the system the more benefits and features you are likely to receive.

Mostly, when people think of security they think of alarms, access control systems, car patrols, guards or bouncers. While this is understandable as they make up the industry as a whole, if you don’t have good key control you don’t have good security.
