April 2005 Products & Solutions

UniLock launched Dorota, its new product, at Securex 2005.

The intelligent lock cylinder can drive many different locks and locking mechanisms. It can also be used in applications where the access control and/or lockouts are important. Dorota - new UniLock cylinder attached to electrical switches or valves - converts them into fully access-controlled devices with auditing capability. It is important to stress that the new product is a microprocessor-based device and able to meet specific customer's requirements. It does not require a battery or wiring and it is a completely standalone unit.

At Securex 2005 one could find a few very different electronic locks, which are making a trend towards incorporating access control capabilities in traditionally mechanical, standalone locking devices.

What else makes UniLock different is that it is developed and manufactured locally in South Africa and proves the potential of homegrown technology. Its uniqueness is rewarded by international patents.

UniLock is currently working on incorporating the new technology into padlock, which will significantly increase and ease a range of applications.

It offers improved security and safety in mining and industrial applications (ignition switches on machinery, substation doors, trucks and containers for transporting goods).

The company is busy negotiating orders for incorporating its technology into mining vehicles in platinum mines and securing substations in collieries.
