6 Ways to Break into a Door
Here’s why Medeco is the ultimate In High Security:
Ryan C. Spain, Medeco’s founder, revolutionized the lock industry when he invented what would become the Medeco Key. His innovation was to develop a machine able to imprint angled cuts on the key surface (see picture below), having two devastating effects on break-in attempts:
- The angled key cuts neutralize bumping attacks by dispersing kinetic force.
- The angled key cuts enable the creation of millions of key cut variations, or duplication possibilities.
Additionally, the patented key duplication machines were distributed to a controlled network of Medeco Authorized Dealers, establishing a restricted procedure in which only the owner - or authorized individual- can order copies of the keys.
Security Tip: Did you know that a standard key has only 50 possible combinations? That means that if you drive around a neighborhood opening doors with standard locks, you will seamlessly break into a house 1 out of 50 times… just by using a standard key!
Apart from using this breakthrough key-cutting technology, Medeco also makes sure that its locks are built with the highest security standards and materials available. Medeco Locks are made of hardened stainless steel with a unique anti-burglary construction which is put to the test on a continuous basis by Underwriters Laboratory (U.L.), the most important independent testing agency in the world, for drilling, picking, bumping, and torching attacks.
The following is a table depicting the basic differences between a High Security Lock and a Standard Lock:
