Tighter key control in place at Leicester City FC

Mul-t-lock : 18 August, 2014  (Application Story)
Leicester City Football Club has tightened security with the installation of the MT5 lock and cylinder system from Mul-T-Lock for increased control over key issues and duplication
Tighter key control in place at Leicester City FC

Mul-T-Lock’s MT5 patented key and cylinder system has been installed by Morgans Locksmiths at Leicester City Football club, as part of the newly promoted team’s security upgrade programme.

Leicester City has recently sealed a place in the lucrative top flight of English football by winning the Championship title, and is now in the process of further improving all its facilities for its staff, players and supporters.

As part of the ongoing programme of works, all security systems in place were reviewed and established to no longer meet the club’s requirements; with evidence of lock failings and loss of key control.

Morgans Locksmiths recommended a new Mul-T-Lock MT5 patented master key system,created in a bespoke design around management needs to specifically accommodate departmental structure and restrict access rights for staff where required.

Says Paul Lewis, Operations Manager at Leicester City Football Club: Leicester City Football Club recognised the challenge ahead.  As a whole club, we are committed to improving all aspects for the benefit of players, staff and our supporters, and protecting them whilst they are on site at all times.

“Morgans worked very closely with us to understand the security requirements and design a bespoke security solution. Key control and managing access were critical aspects, alongside the assurance of mechanical reliability and a system that was clearly built to last. We were recommended Mul-T-Lock’s MT5 solution, presented in a master key system and I was especially impressed with its flexibility and ability to accommodate all our needs.”

MT5 is the first key and cylinder in the UK to be supported by a unique key authorisation magnetic strip card.  This card is presented to a registered MT5 locksmith before any additional keys can be supplied to ensure tight control of key duplication.

For Leicester City Football Club, their security system is encrypted and a tight security protocol has been implemented between themselves and Morgans Locksmiths to ensure only authorised personnel obtain additional keys and locks for their system

Shane Hall, of Morgan’s Locksmiths added: “At Leicester City Football Club, the gradual failings of the original security system was becoming a severe issue for the management team, with lack of knowledge of keys in operation and staff members holding master keys who did not necessarily require all access rights.

“By taking the time to work with Paul and using Mul-T-Lock’s MT5 system, known for its ability to adapt to its application, we could create a high performance master key security solution that is scaleable to suit different access requirements. Keys can only now be copied by us, as an accredited Mul-T-Lock MT5 dealer, with the presentation of authorisation to ensure complete key control for the club.”

Steve Ross, Managing Director at Mul-T-Lock, concluded: “Leicester City is a perfect example of how a master key suite can enhance security arrangements even in a football club, where staff may need varying access to different facilities.Taking the time to work with a professional locksmith and investing in upgrading the lock cylindersand keys to a platform such as Mul-T-Lock MT5, will instantly bring considerable added protection, key control and access management, whilst satisfying budgetary needs.“
