I/C Housing Systems

For locksmiths who manage security solutions on a large property, a lot of time can be spent on rekeying jobs. Interchangeable Cores introduce the ability to rekey a lock in a matter of seconds by foregoing the need to dissasemble the door hardware, and instead simply swapping one combinated core for a another one.

GMS SFIC Mortise Housing Small Format Interchangeable Cores - SFIC
An SFIC allows for a universal solution to property that can benefit from interchangeable cores. Regardless of the door hardware's housing brand, all cores have a standardized form factor allowing brands to work interchangeably with each other.
GMS LFIC Rim Cylinder Housing Large Format Interchangeable Cores - LFIC
An LFIC differs from an SFIC in that between brands the size and shape of the core can vary, even if they share the same keyway. In these cases one would need to match the door hardware's LFIC housing to that lock's same brand. The benefit of a Large Format Interchangeable Core, however, is that repinning the extracted core is an easier affair, making an LFIC a more attractive option depending on the amount of locks on a property that need to be maintained.
