Tamper resistant locking cylinders used in College of Psychic Studies

Mul-t-lock : 13 December, 2013  (Application Story)
London based college takes new locking systems with tight control on key duplication and high tamper resistance without disrupting the aesthetics of the period architecture
Tamper resistant locking cylinders used in College of Psychic Studies

Mul-T-Lock’s patented MT5 key & cylinder platform has been installed at the College of Psychic Studies by ATCL Locksmiths to restrict the unauthorised distribution of keys and ensure its security can operate from a single master key system, without compromising on the 19th century architecture.

Based in the heart of London, The College of Psychic Studies was founded in 1884 as an educational charity to offer courses for students seeking to explore a consciousness beyond matter.

However, with a number of different and aged cylinder platforms on site securing the College, security of students and staff was being compromised.

ATCL Locksmiths recommended Mul-T-Lock’s MT5 patented key & cylinder range, to provide enhanced key security and strong tamper resistance. The system has now been fitted throughout the College, without impacting on the aesthetics and only authorised personnel can now distribute keys.

Jackie Coe at The College of Psychic Studies said: The College is one of the oldest establishments of its kind and it is our responsibility to make sure it’s looked after. Any refurbishment measures must be carefully considered with regards to how it will impact on the aesthetics of the overall premises.

“ATCL demonstrated the advantages of MT% and the Trustees were especially impressed with the flexibility of the master key system and its ability to incorporate all of our key access requirements. The MT5 system has now been installed throughout the College, with minimum disruption to learning timetables or everyday operations.”

MT5 is the first cylinder in the UK to be supported by a unique key authorisation magnetic strip card to ensure tight control of key duplication.

Ollie Farrow at ATCL Locksmiths added: “The College of Psychic Studies presented a number of challenges primarily due to the ornate period construction of the doors and frames. MT5 offered a cost effective solution that is clean and simple to install and ensures security and access for the entire premises can be carefully managed at all times.”

Steve Ross, Managing Director of Mul-T-Lock, concluded: “The College of Psychic Studies is a perfect example of how an MT5 master key suite can enhance security arrangements in an educational environment and respect the historical nature of its surroundings. Here, this ensures tutors and students can continue to study and develop at their own pace, with peace of mind they are in a safe and secure environment.”
