Data protection has become an increasing concern within hospitals: last year, NHS departments reported almost 500 data breeches to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
When a key is copied or lost, it poses an immediate security threat.
Unauthorised copies of keys are often distrubuted to an unknown number of people; hospitals can incur great costs in trying to solve the problem.
In healthcare facilities, it is essential that confidential information and expensive medical equipment are safeguarded.
Therefore, access control requirements are critical.
The keyULTRA master key system offers an effective way of ensuring that no unauthorised keys are cut.
DuraPIN technology protects both the key and cylinder assembly from illegal duplication; it permits access for authorised personnel only.
keyULTRA ensures that security and facilities managers are fully aware of everyone with access to each area of the building.
The system has been fitted in a number of healthcare facilties across Britain, including Birminghams Good Hope Hospital and Arnold Lodge, a medium secure psychiatric unit, which is based in Leicester.
Offering resistance to bumping, picking, plug extraction and drilling, keyULTRA adheres to BS EN 1303:2005. It has been tested to over half a million cycles.
It has also been approved for use on FD30 and FD60 fire doors in accordance with BS EN 1634-1.
The system has been designed specifically for busy environments, manufactured with self-lubricating materials to enhance its resistance to wear and tear.
