The Keylex range of mechanical digital door locks from Securikey, a supplier of physical security products, offers access control for buildings; domestic and light commercial to heavy industrial. According to the firm it does away with the need for keys, cards or tokens that could be lost, stolen or damaged.
The firm says that the Keylex mechanical digital door locks offer a solution for both internal and external requirements. As they are self-contained, all models in the Keylex range are described by the supplier as straightforward to install, and if a code might be compromised, reinstating security is quick and easy, it is claimed.
There are four Keylex ranges, depending on the level of security required: Mini, Light Duty, Medium Duty and Heavy Duty. In all cases, mechanical operation means that there is no need for wiring or batteries, and stainless steel buttons ensure combination usage is not indicated.
The Mini and the Light Duty ranges feature a narrow design, allowing them to be installed on doors with stile widths as low as 80mm. Mini is designed for standard duty, internal door installations in domestic or light commercial applications, whereas the Light Duty range is for aluminium hollow metal sections and features an optional key override facility.
The Medium Duty Keylex range features an integral slipping clutch mechanism and is for high-security external door installations. These digital door locks can be installed on any aluminium hollow metal section with stile widths down to a minimum of 42mm and can also be used as part of a euro profile keying system, whereby one key can be used to open different doors as well as security equipment like safes or mailboxes.
The Keylex Heavy Duty, as the name implies, is built for applications where there is the need for robust security, such as on aircraft hangar doors, where there will be excessive volumes of traffic or where there is a high risk of misuse. Suitable for an external door installation, the design features a robust built-in slipping clutch mechanism. The range offers over 16,000 possible combinations.
