Interchangeable Cores

Versatile and easy-to-use interchangeable cores are built for security and convenience at an affordable price.

Interchangeable cores offer maximum flexibility for a building owner. Whenever a key is lost or stolen, locks can be rekeyed quickly by non-locksmith personnel. All it takes is the special “control” key. This key is used to remove and install all cores in the system. Just go to the door, remove the old core and install the new one with the control key. Security is regained in seconds.

Interchangeable cores and locksets are compatible with other competitor small format interchangeable core (SFIC) products, such as Best and Arrow – use Falcon locks with their cores and vice versa. In most cases, Falcon can even furnish cores master keyed into existing Best or Arrow key systems. Just include a copy of the existing bitting list with a Falcon order.

Construction Cores

Interchangeable core jobs requiring construction keying are furnished with temporary cores, which are all keyed to a combination unrelated to the permanent system’s master key. When the building is turned over to the owner, the permanent cores are installed and the construction cores are returned to Falcon Lock for credit. Orders must include the name and address of the person to whom the construction keys and permanent master and change keys should be sent.
