We are an Medeco ASSA ABLOY MSC Dealer for Medeco High Security locks that feature UL437 Listed physical strength components like the triple locking technology for ultimate pick resistance and solid brass construction with strategically placed hardened inserts to prevent drilling attacks, for areas that require protection against picking, bumping, drilling, prying or other forms of attack. Standard locking systems without utility patent protected keys allow anyone who gains possession of a key to easily and inexpensively make a copy. With an unauthorized duplicate key, a thief has complete access to a building, its physical and intellectual property, and the people inside – let your Medeco locksmith be Broward Century Locksmiths.


One of the unique identifiers for Broward Century Locksmiths has been the Protected Key Systems we offer through Medeco. Many times in a business, the value of the facility is not reflected in the quality and security of the locks meant to keep them safe.  Find out the 3 reasons a Protected Key System can benefit your business in South Florida.

1) Security of Key Blanks: The first benefit of a Protected Key System is that your keys are patented and restricted. This means that your key provider is the only vendor with access to your key blanks. These are made specifically for your locks and no one else’s, and no other locksmiths can get the information or blanks to your locks. There are some locks that are so common that it is incredibly easy to get a key blank to fit it, as well as make a key that will open the lock. With a Protected Key System, to even get a key blank, you must go through the vendor.

2) Duplication Control: The second benefit of a Protected Key System is Duplication Control. This is an important point for many reasons; with a standard blank, anyone can walk into a Lowe’s or Home Depot, place the key into a machine, and Voila! a copy of the key to your commercial facility (Yes, even if it says Do Not Duplicate!) is produced. However, with a Protected Key System like Medeco M3, we would only cut keys for you or anyone you personally authorized to request keys.

3) Audit Trail: Another benefit of a Protected Key System is the control you retain. Controlling your keys is keeping track of key requests and how many keys have been copied. In your business, you may have several people within your organization who need certain keys. Because we are the only vendor who has access to your key blank, we can also keep track of who requested which key, and how many keys are currently in circulation. When a key is lost or unaccounted for, you can come to us and quickly get an audit trail of who is responsible for the loss or which keys are missing.
