Locking plans

sleutel A locking plan indicates who has access to which space with which key (badge or tag). This way, only one key is necessary for anyyone to have access to the spaces for which he or she is authorised.

Don't let your locking system be an open door

Mechanical locking systems are almost always supplied via the trade. This is itself a risk. The trade is subject to the standard classifications, but without knowledge of high-security burglary techniques. This means that you get a system that may well be certified, but that no account has been taken of the type of criminal, level of knowledge and severity of the attack weapons. Dutch and European standards do not provide for this. For a tough criminal, a standard locking system makes for easy entry. Do you want to have this risk covered? Then work together with professionals who do possess high-security burglars' knowledge. With Van den Hoogen Security.

We counter criminal techniques

We take into account the many techniques that criminals use to avail themselves of a working key:
  • Taking pictures (from a distance) of a key on a keychain
  • (Forced) removal and temporary placement of a system cylinder in a remote gate, port, barn or padlock (reverse engineering)
  • Decoding cylinders using scoop techniques, for example
  • Making impressions of cylinders (possibly with the foil technique)
  • Attacks with bump key techniques, scoop techniques and/or combination techniques
  • ...

Extra protection

Countering these techniques requires practical burglars' knowledge. Knowledge of opening techniques that are not accommodated in the standards. We have this knowledge. And we incorporate this knowledge in our locking plans. We also make changes in the protected cylinders so that a criminal's purchase of a similar cylinder does not yield the correct information. For extra protection, the resupply and copying of keys, along with correspondence about this, occurs via our specialised management department - i.e. outside regular channels. All extra measures to guarantee your security and our success.

Locking plan matrix

A locking plan matrix is a handy aid for drawing up a locking plan. It's an Excel document in which you specify both users and spaces. You indicate with checkmarks who has access to which space.
