When should I rekey my building?

Author: Mock Webware |

A building that’s been correctly master keyed should last between 5 to 7 years depending on how well the keys are controlled and the locksmiths’ ability to maintain keying records.

Other signs it’s time to consider rekeying your building are

  • Your key cabinet is missing several keys, especially the master key!
  • You have a drawer full of keys no one knows what they go to.
  • Employees are shown up in unauthorized areas of your building.
  • Heavy turnover of employees.
  • Missing inventory or office supplies are on the rise.
  • Not getting back an employee’s keys when they terminate from the company.
  • Your records of who you issue keys to are out of date or missing information.
  • Too many master keys have been issued, particularly the master key.
