Copy-protected keys and functional key lock systems

Free access to hospitals facilitates the movement of people and, therefore, the risk of malicious acts such as theft, damage or other. Security managers have to show ingenuity in devising ways to manage entries, protect sensitive rooms and ensure the safety of persons and property, for both staff and patients.

In the first instance, CISM studies the challenges and issues specific to the hospital environment in order to offer a solution that guarantees the security of buildings and the management of entry points.

The key lock system is also referred to as the combinations scheme. This fairly complex document is designed by the lock manufacturer and designed to organise use of the keys that open the doors to one or more buildings.

One lock may be opened by 3 different types of key

  • The individual key
  • The partial master key
  • The general master key

 

The key lock system has 3 advantages :

A key lock system is generally set up for rooms used by several people :

  • Enables simple, rapid access
  • Simplified set of keys
  • Makes it possible to manages the access rights of each individual user

 

Key control and duplication is a protective feature that is inherent to the level of security offered by the cylinders. CISM delivers key that are protected by a dedicated ownership card – the keys can only be duplicated by CISM departments.
