Kaba star – the star of master key systems


Kaba star is the most sophisticated mechanical master key system. It is characterised by a very high-performance, patented cylinder, which means keys can’t be copied without your permission. The system is especially suitable for complex sites with high security requirements and can be combined with Kaba elolegic and Kaba elostar electronic locks.

Using the Kaba KeyLink permutation concept, Kaba star comes with an unlimited number of individual key combinations, which makes it one of the most secure key systems in the world. It also features a highly flexible access rights concept, which is easily expandable.


Kaba star is a flexible cylinder lock that fulfils your highest security and organisational needs.

  • Several registered patents mean that keys are impossible to copy by third parties without your express permission. Kaba's key registration scheme ensures that only authorised copies are ever made.
  • Certified according to the highest European security standards, as it offers great protection against manipulation and vandalism.
