pExtra PXP is a highly secure mechanical key system with a unique sophisticated key profile. The diversity of the pExtra PXP key system allows options ranging from a simple keyed alike system operated through the one key to a specific grand master key system, where multiple levels of access can be introduced.
The pExtra PXP key system can be used in a variety of different applications such as building complexes, public offices, utilities or for your own private home.
Key 1 is the first key that is to be used in your cylinder/lock. Key 2 and Key 3 are reserved for the future.
If you lose Key 1, you simply insert Key 2 to operate your cylinder. This blocks Key 1 from working again. Leaving Key 3 as a reserve for the future.
If you lose Key 2, you simply insert Key 3 to operate your cylinder. This blocks Key 1 and Key 2 from working again.
Key to Differ (KD)
Each cylinder can be operated by its own key.
Keyed Alike (KA)
Several cylinders can be opened by the same key.
Each key opens its own cylinder and the maisoned entrance cylinder (e.g. the main entrance in an apartment block).
Master Key System (MK)
Each cylinder is opened by its own individual key and by the master key.
Grand Master Key System (GMK)
Each cylinder is opened by its own individual key, the respective master key and the grand master key.
pExtra PXP can be used in both new fits and retrofits.
It is available in a wide range of different lock types, for example mortice locks, rim locks, padlocks, furniture locks, cam locks and many more.
The pExtra 1two3 system allows you to lose your keys up to 3 times before requiring a rekey.
These rekeys can be built into the cylinder by the locksmith during the assembly stage of the cylinders using two special wafers.
When you lose your key for the first time, you simply insert your second key into the cylinder. By inserting this key the first wafer is moved into the side of the plug allowing the new key to work, which in turn blocks the first key from working again.
When you lose your second key, you simply insert your 3rd key into the cylinder. By inserting this key into the cylinder, the second wafer is moved into the side of the plug allowing the new key to work, which in turn blocks the second key from working again.
A convenient way of providing continued security during the 3 phases of construction is to use pExtra Construction keying.
In simple terms, all cylinders are operated by the one key (KA) during the construction phase.
At “handover” the next stage key (commonly known as the developer key) is turned in the cylinder, moving the 1st construction wafer, and “changing” the combination of the
cylinder to the key that has just been inserted. Blocking the Phase 1 key from working again.
Once the apartment is sold, to you as the owner you would insert your key into the cylinder and once the key is turned this moves the 2nd construction wafer, again “changing” the combination of the cylinder to the final combination, to your key. Blocking Phase 1 and Phase 2 keys from working again.
