"It Pays To Deal With A
Licensed - Bonded - Insured Craftsman"
Medeco® interchangeable core locks are
designed so that cores can quickly and easily be changed by
non-technical personal by using a special control key. Locks
can, in effect, be "rekeyed" without having a working
knowledge of the lock or without having to take the lock apart.
Medeco interchangeable core cylinders are available in a variety
of different sizes, formats and security levels. Cores are
available to fit into rim and mortise cylinders, key-in-knob
locks, padlocks and bored auxiliary deadlatches and deadbolts.
Some Medeco interchangeable cores are UL437 listed and provide
drill and pick resistance and those that incorporate the Biaxial®
design offer utility patented control. For replacement Best®
style small format interchangeable core cylinders, see Medeco's
KeyMark® product line.
- Cylinders can quickly and
easily be changed by non-technical personal by using a
special control key which will remove the core from the lock
housing. A core with a new combination can then be inserted
and the lock will then effectively be "re-keyed".
All of this can be done without having to take the lock
apart which reduces the expense of calling outside service
personnel to perform routine lock "re-keys".
- The 31 Series
interchangeable core has a control/locking lug positioned at
the back of the cylinder. An extra long key activates the
control/locking lug. This eliminates the need for build up
or control pins thus simplifying pinning. It also allows the
introduction of interchangeable core cylinders into existing
master key systems that were not designed to accommodate
interchangeable core pinning.
- The 31 series
interchangeable core cylinders provide a high level of drill
and pick resistance but are not listed by UL.
- The 32 series
interchangeable core cylinders have the control/locking lug
positioned at the middle of the core. This provides
additional protection against dent puller attacks.
- The 32 series uses
coordinated cuts between the operating keys and the control
keys which eliminates the need for build up or control pins
and simplifies pinning.
- Utility patented key
control, (for cylinders that incorporate the Biaxial®
design), provides protection against the unauthorized
duplication of keys.
- A special elevating and
rotating pin tumbler design, along with false slots on the
bottom pins, mushroom top pins and a sidebar mechanism, work
together, to provide superior pick resistance.
- Angled cuts on the keys,
along with fore and aft positioning, in the Biaxial design,
provide added dimensions that dramatically increases key
combinations and enables Medeco to produce some of the
largest master key systems in the industry.
- Hardened steel inserts,
positioned in critical areas of the cylinder, provide a high
degree of drill resistance.
- Solid brass construction
provides high quality and long cylinder life.
- 8 different finishes
provide an extremely close color match with existing
- UL437 listing (32 series
only) provides assurance that cylinders meet universal
standards for drill and pick resistance and resistance
against other types of forced attack.
- 2 year warranty offers
assurance of product quality and factory support in the rare
event there is a problem.
