Why do I Need key control?


That's the average loss when a business experiences a daytime burglary. Usually, these kinds of thefts occur because someone made an unauthorized copy of the business' key.

The truth is, thirty-percent of all burglaries are unlawful entry without force--meaning the thief had a key to gain access. How's that possible? Because even your keys can be easily duplicated at one of the more than 30,000 hardware stores and 26,000 discount stores nationwide, and it only takes a few minutes.

What's the answer?

Medeco's high security solution starts with key control, a process that ensures keys cannot be duplicated without proper permission. With Medeco's patented key control system, it's virtually impossible for someone--even a locksmith--to duplicate a key without proper permission.

In addition, Medeco's high security locks are strong and built to resist physical attacks such as prying, kicking and sawing. Medeco then takes it further with a uniquely designed tumbler pin system that reduces covert compromise such as picking and bumping.
