- Small Format Interchangeable Core (SFIC)
What is it?
Small Format Interchangeable Cores (SFIC) are
available to answer the need for patented key
control among end users of Best®, Falcon,
etc interchangeable core key systems. Schlage
offers 7-pin cores in Everest B Family restricted
keyways to retrofit Best® and its clones.
This is the perfect choice for end users who want
patented key control in an SFIC hardware application.
All Everest keys have the patented undercut groove
that prevents other companies from manufacturing
and distributing the key blanks. Locksmiths or
other dealers do not stock B Family end user restricted
key blanks. Schlage requires a letter of authorization
from the end user before shipping restricted keys
or blanks. Schlage will drop ship Everest Restricted
products directly to the address specified by
the end user. End user restricted keyways are
randomly assigned, and are not offered with geographic
exclusivity. End users who want that exclusivity
would need to upgrade their hardware to accept
Schlage Primus high security cylinders.
Schlage offers different B Family Restricted
keyways to select locksmiths and security dealers
to service end users who do not havetheir own
in-house key shops. For more details, dealers
are invited to download the Everest
Answer Book or contact your local IR
Security & Safety Consultant.
For convenience, regular 6 and 7-pin cores are
also available in the most common Best keyways
from Schlage and a wider variety are available
from Falcon. SFIC products can never be used in
the same key system as Schlage's full size cylinders.
- Restricted blanks are stamped with a facility
ID code, which helps Schlage trace unauthorized
keys to their origin and take action against
anyone who duplicates keys without authorization
- Protected against unauthorized manufacture
and distribution until July 2014.
- Fits all Best®, Falcon, etc. 7-pin housings
- Six end user multiplex keyways are available
for large key systems.
