Key security, accountability and accessibility play a huge part in the smooth running of many businesses, garage and service centres in particular. Control
of keys is of paramount importance. Lack of the above can prove; in some circumstances; very costly, as was the case with XYZ Motors.
They ran a very busy service and MOT Testing Centre, with a high number of
vehicles passing through each day. Two vehicle keys were lost on one
particular day. Frustratingly keys had been mislaid in the past which had cost
time and therefore money. Had they been lost or stolen? An answer to the
time wasting/searching for the keys was needed.
Working closely with REECE SAFETY a solution was found, not only to the
immediate problem of key security but to save time and money in accessing
and accountability of the vehicle keys.
The KeySecure Range of Automotive Key Security Cabinets with the added
benefit of a self-closing door was evaluated and found to be a great cost
effective way forward, important in a busy working environment. With rugged
square cornered construction, durable powder coated finish and complete
with adjustable colour coded hook bars to accommodate different length of
keys with corresponding numbered keytabs (each department having a
different colour). Strong metal hook bars were able to cope with the high
usage with different length and spaced hooks for the alternative size of keys
and transponders, ensuring there was no messy bunching, overlapping and
tangling of keys.
In this instance a KS100DMDPH cabinet was installed. The internal control
index (which is removable) was not used and keys were taken and signed out
and logged in, in a separate ledger. The high quality digital lock was supplied
with a latch closing function. To complete the cabinet, it was manufactured
with a facility for the door to self-close, ensuring that the cabinet is never left
open. Keeping the keys secure, accessible and accountable to authorised
The garage found the KeySecure Self Closing Key Security Cabinet a really cost
effective solution to their key control problem, giving a more professional
control of keys at any given time and saving money as well. A win win result.
