The essential building blocks of a well protected Schlage key system begin with Everest 29 keyways. These keyway families offer the greatest levels of versatility as part of a layered security plan and the greatest compatibility to existing Schlage and competitive locksets. Everest 29 keys are backwards compatible to legacy Everest systems allowing you to regain patent protection for critical points of entry and improve key control and overall security.
Everest 29 key systems protect against unauthorized duplication two ways. First, restricted key blanks are tightly controlled by Schlage to ensure access for only authorized dealers. Secondly, patent protection deters duplication of the design—an offense subject to federal law. They are also available as open, Everest S keyways to give you the level of security you need for every application.
