Control, protection and security

February 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Products

“Patented keys are the future, as the patented key system offers unparalleled security features including protection from future keys duplication,” states ASSA ABLOY South Africa’s VP, Quintin Boukan. “The Mul-T-Lock Integrator key system offers the best of both worlds as it combines superior quality with affordability, offering end-users with security and financial peace of mind.”

Mul-T-Lock‘s key technology which is based on the 7x7 telescopic pin tumbler mechanism, comprises seven chambers and a horizontal keyway. According to Boukan, the high security cylinder platform which incorporates a double protection mechanism, ensures an excellent security platform. “The innovative design allows for special oval launcher plug pins, either a single or double (master) pin within the relevant plug chambers. The single launcher pin can be positioned in the cylinder as an internal or external launcher pin.”

The design features a unique moving element which incorporates a new pin OVI and a new plug which allows insertion of the OVI pin. The new body introduces two cavities to receive the OVI pin. Boukan explains how the system operates: “Without the key, the OVI pin is allocated in the cylinder body cavity. The OVI pin is held up in its position by the pins and springs action. When inserting the key, the lower part of the OVI pin is lodged in the Interactive+ pin cavity (in the key). The key turn supplies the energy to the OVI pin to withdraw from the body cavity generating a superior cut line, higher than the cut line of the interactive pins. This is possible due to the conic shape of the OVI pin head.”
