ISEO master keyed cylinder with thumb-turn

Master keyed cylinders offer the most flexible method of controlling access to a building with multiple cylinder locks and multiple members of staff.  It allows the owner to control access to the building’s many rooms with minimal cost.  ISEO master key cylinders have a good level of security with a 5 Pin system, a solid brass body (satin nickel plated), up to 5000 differs, up to 20 sub-master groups and supplied complete with 2 keys per cylinder.  Where a high security, restricted profile system where security and key control is of primary importance we offer the Access 2 Tigris Patent Restricted profile system which allows full key control as copy keys can only be cut by the cylinder manufacturer.  Master keying also allows each cylinder in a suite to be opened by more than one type of key.  A single key can also have the option to open more than one cylinder (called a central or common cylinder).  All orders for master keyed suites placed via the website will be followed up by an telephone consultation with one of our experts to determine the exact details of your requirements, number of sub masters and/or common locks, and what additional keys you might need, as these systems are built to your individual specifications.

Q: Choosing ironmongery for four final fire exit doors and frames which will experience heavy traffic, and need to be secure (would prefer not to have a panic bar), can you recommend a handle arrangement, perhaps with a thumblock on the inside, that would be suitable for these circumstances?

A: For the arrangement you describe we would suggest using escape sashlocks – these have euro cylinder thumb turn locks (i.e. you can have any kind of high security, master keyed, anti pick, anti bump etc euro profile cylinder) but use a split spindle so from the inside the handle will ALWAYS over-ride the lock and open.  The sets we supply include standard differ cylinders, which you can see on the website clicking the bold link, talk to us about higher security cylinders or masterkeying.
