Restricted keys are keys having a strictly controlled and restricted distribution to users. Patents and written agreements in the distribution line ensure that when you have restricted keys in use you can be confident that key copies are available only with your authority. In short, additional copies must be sought from the original locksmith. Restricted keys are used commonly in commercial situations where the possibility of unauthorised key copies could be undesirable, and as such they have a definite role in many businesses, both small and large, as well as in schools and other organisations. The keys are available only upon the authority of you or your assigned representative, and each key has its unique and sequential identification enabling every key to be linked to its owner. A master key system is often used in conjunction with restricted keys where you would like different keys to access different areas or rooms within the premises. As an example, a hotel manager may want a master key with total access and a lower level key that can access all areas except the cellar. Every business is different in some way, and the key ranking can be designed to suit your needs with as many key levels as appropriate. Alternatively, a master key system can be designed in the same way using less expensive standard keys, although there is of course no guarantee of unauthorised copies being made.
