Bristol University upgrades masterkey suite

Bristol University presented security challenges

As part of an ongoing complete security upgrade throughout the campus,
Bristol University has installed Mul-T-lock’s MTL™600 master key suites.

Mul-T-Lock worked closely with Guardian Security Systems in Bristol, supplying high security MTL™600 suites to over 20 buildings across campus, all operated on a master key suite basis.

Antony Blundal, security services manager (systems) at Bristol University said the University premises present a number of security challenges due to the open nature of the campus sites. “There are different access requirements across all the facilities to consider. We developed a specification using MTL™600, which offers high security, is flexible and remains cost-effective. The master key operation is invaluable to keep maintenance to a minimum and the patent protection allows us better control of how many key copies are in existence.”

Ian Thresher, regional sales manager of Mul-T-Lock added: “The changing nature of the university ‘ecosystem’ in the UK has many implications, including consequences for the safety and security of students, staff and the public. The legal and reputational issues arising from any failure to protect and secure people, physical assets and information data, are also increasingly severe. Hence, it is integral for suppliers like Mul-T-Lock and Guardian Security Systems to work closely with universities like Bristol, to understand the bespoke security requirements and install the best solution to protect all those who attend.”
