For more information on these products, or to buy or rent please see Mechanical Key Systems in our products.

We have developed a bespoke software package called Key Control Software, a simple yet powerful key tracking web application that means you do not have to use a Keytracker system to keep track of where your keys are.

This software can either be purchased and installed into an existing server or hosted via Keytracker online.
To find out more about Key Control Software please see Software in the online shop or give the team a call.

The Keytracker Single T1 unit is wall mounted and then a large cable seal is attached to the retention peg and fastened to the ladder or other similar equipment, ensuring the security of your item.

Mechanical Systems

To increase security further, we are now able to offer mechanical pegboards that can restrict access to certain keys. By using different tracks, we have created a way to give management the ability to access the entire board with our specific management access pegs, whilst employees are able to only gain access to certain tracks. To learn more about these restricting track mechanical boards please contact the team or fill out an Enquiry Form today.

Should you already have a mechanical board that restricts access you can order additional Management Access Pegs via our online shop.

The main reason for introducing a Keytracker is to manage and control the use of keys within the workplace; if your employees need to access more than one set of keys at a time to do their job then there are a couple of options:

1) The keys can be bunched together and stored on one retaining peg so the employee takes the whole bunch and can use the keys as necessary.

2) The employee can be issued as many access pegs as they need; these can be engraved identically or in sequence, whichever best suits your organisationational needs.

3) In the case of new and used car sites there will normally be a set of access pegs used specifically for “site moves”, engraved with SM and use specifically when the pitch is moved locations. The Sales Manager will distribute these prior to the move and collect them once it has been completed.

Here at Keytracker, we always want to ensure that you understand exactly how our products can work for you, enabling you to make the most informed decision possible.

The mechanical Keytracker boards have a stainless steel frame that includes pre-drilled holes to allow for fixing to any solid surface. If the location of your board is in a secure area you may not need a cabinet; if you are required to secure keys in a safe overnight you can use a wall mount. This allows the board to be situated in an area safely during the day and simply lifted off the wall mount and put in the safe overnight.

Our bespoke steel cabinets are designed specifically for use with the mechanical boards and the sizes vary dependant on the board height. The standard range will hold a board on the back of the door as well as inside therefore doubling the key capacity if required at a later date. The self-closing cabinets include four-point night shoot bolts for additional security overnight and we can assure you that whilst some cabinets have been mutilated by those intending to access keys unlawfully, no keys have ever to our knowledge actually been taken before the thieves have been either intercepted or deterred by the police.

Our electronic lockers and cabinets offer a simple and effective way to secure, track and manage shared portable equipment. Accessed by simply entering a pin code or swiping an access card at the control panel, the electronic lockers will grant authorised users access to the keys and/or equipment stored within the unit.

Cabinets or system boards can be fitted anywhere as long as fixings can be secured. We have supplied and installed both in temporary buildings, vehicles, boats, gate houses and temperature-controlled rooms, as well as conventional hollow and solid walls.


Electronic Systems

Delivery can vary for our Electronic Systems due to the bespoke nature of the product. Larger systems and cabinets with additional access methods may have a longer build schedule than a standard system. However, an estimated delivery date will be advised once the order has been confirmed.

All of our Electronic Systems come with the Pin Code access method as standard. We do however offer a range of additional access methods that help to increase security, such as Swipe Card and Fingerprint Access, and additional accessories such as the Alcosentry Breathalyser unit. Additionally, the Restricted Key Access System physically locks the keys into the board to increase security, ensuring staff only have access to authorised keys. For more information on this please see Restricted Key Access Electronic System.
