High security locks and keys provide an increased level of protection to your home or business that regular locks do not. These locks are more difficult to open without authorized access, thereby preventing unwanted entry and protecting your personal property and security.
One of our most popular lock models is Medeco. These locks use only the highest quality material and are incredibly strong. The keys for Medeco locks are also more difficult to duplicate because only the company that gave you the original key can make any additional copies. This provides you with optimal control over your keys, and therefore over access to your property. This is because they key ways used by Medeco are patent protected, so no locksmith besides the one that made you the keys can have access to that keyway. If a keyway is not patent protected, any locksmith or manufacturer can make copies of your key.
In Medeco locks, there are a number of incorporated anti-theft measures. This includes the quality of the materials: heavier locks and thicker screws, for example. These particular locks are also bump proof. Traditional locks can be manipulated by bump keys; however, these high security locks contain advanced hardware that guards against this. Medeco locks also protect against other types of physical attack, including drilling and picking.
If you’ve ever given a spare key to someone who has access to your home, such as a house sitter or cleaning/pest control service, then that person could have made a copy of your key within a few minutes for only a few dollars. The same stands for your vehicle or business. If you have ever given your keys to a parking attendant or valet service, it’s possible that they could quickly make a copy. Do previous employees have keys to your business that they have not returned?
These are all reasons to consider a high security lock. Unauthorized copies of your keys can not be made, which means that you can rest easier knowing that your most important possessions are protected. Key control is one of the greatest risks to your personal assets, and high security locks such as Medeco offer the highest caliber of key control. Make security a priority and invest in a high quality lock that keeps unwanted entry away.
