SALTO achieves Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

October 2019 News, Access Control & Identity Management

SALTO Systems has announced that it has received the first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for XS4 smart locking solutions, including the XS4 Original model for the European and Scandinavian standard models.

An EPD is an independently verified document that reports environmental information about the entire lifecycle of a product, in this case, the SALTO XS4 Original narrow smart electronic locking range. Producing an EPD is an internationally recognised way for companies like SALTO to be transparent about the environmental impact of producing and maintaining products.

"Obtaining the first EPD for an XS4 model globally at the concept design stage is a significant achievement that SALTO Systems should be incredibly proud of," said SALTO Systems chief marketing and sales officer Aznar Sethna.

"Not only does it set a benchmark for the access control industry, but this EPD also demonstrates SALTO's genuine commitment to environmental transparency and improved environmental outcomes," he said.

SALTO XS4 models and smart lock technology for access control from SALTO Systems, which can be used to retrofit doors or be used in new building construction doors, was designed to be environmentally sustainable and was a factor in SALTO achieving such favourable EPD results. It is not uncommon for security and technology companies to conduct lifecycle assessments. EPD verification required data to be collected and reported according to strict rules and standards.

Smart, secure, innovative, and easy to install and retrofit doors, the XS4 Original electronic escutcheon sets need no hardwiring and provide a totally wire-free, battery-powered networked electronic locking solution that can be used for an extensive range of access control applications using the latest ID technologies and keyless and mobile (NFC and BLE) functionality.

The XS4 Original smart locking range is specially designed to fit on most standard doors and work with the majority of Scandinavian, European, and ANSI mortise locks and tubular latches, and is totally EPD compliant to provide smart locking solutions which protect our planet’s resources and which have a lower environmental impact. This ensures that SALTO smart locks and processes measure up to the highest environmental and resource-saving standards.
