High Security Lock Cylinders
“High security” cylinders are specially designed to be difficult to bypass. Picking, or bumping, a cylinder of this type is extremely impractical, and fairly improbable for a novice. This type of cylinder is recommend anytime sensitive information, or valuable equipment/merchandise, is being stored. These type of cylinders normally have the added benefit of being a restricted keyway.
Beyond commercial, and residential, doorway security manufactures of high security cylinders often offer other formats of their cylinders. Vending machines, file cabinets, and padlocks, are just a few of the many application options available.
The successor to Medeco Biaxial. As with Biaxial chisel shaped pins with 360° rotation make this cylinder type extremely difficult to pick, or bump, and angled key cuts greatly reduce the effectiveness of “credit card key blanks”. Angled cuts on the keys, along with fore and aft cut positioning, add dimensions that dramatically increases key combinations and enables Medeco to produce some of the largest master key systems in the in the industry.
Medeco³ added a third security feature to the system. A locking bar at the bottom of the cylinder that increases the difficulty of picking, and bumping.
This is a unique High Security cylinder that offers “a pin within a pin” system that is very difficult to pick. This key also uses a proprietary cutting machine greatly reducing unwanted key duplication. Stop by Sandfly Locksmith on Skidaway Road to see this cylinder in action on our own storefront door.
