Medeco Cylinders

All locks are not created equal. MedecoŽ cylinders provide a high degree of security by incorporating special design features inside each cylinder. Medeco cylinders offer superior pick resistance, excellent resistance against drilling and other forced attacks, large number of combinations and a utility patent to protect against unauthorized key duplication.

Pick Resistance
Pick resistance is accomplished through the use of specially designed pins that must be elevated and rotated to an exact position in order for the lock to operate. False slots on the sides of the pins, along with mushroom shaped top pins, further enhance the cylinder's pick resistance.

Drilling Resistance
To resist drilling, hardened steel inserts are used to protect critical areas of the plug face, shell and sidebar. Additional drill resistance is provided by hardened steel rods inside the bottom pins and selective use of hardened steel top pins.

Unauthorized Duplication
Protection against the unauthorized duplication of keys is accomplished through the use of strong utility patents and strict factory key control policies. Additional restriction on key cutting occurs due to fact that a special key cutting must be used at accurately reproduce the critical angled cuts on a Medeco key.
