Assa Abloy Hospitality has launched the VingCard
E100 lock, an electronic escutcheon set specifically designed to
work together with lock cases that are built according to the
German DIN standard (Deutsches Institut für Normung) and
Scandinavian Industry Standard (SIS).
Compatible with RFID keycards, the
escutcheon set was engineered with back-of-house operations in
mind, and is ideal for offices and other standard hotel staff
Varying configurations of
doors found within office and hotel staff areas often limit the
ability to implement newer door lock solutions. The E100 serves to
sidestep such issues, thanks to its narrow and minimalistic
design. By offering both DIN and SIS compatibility, the E100 can
be implemented on doors that feature narrow lock cases in aluminum
frames. It can also be installed on sliding doors, if required.
"We have long recognized the responsibility that
building operators are tasked with when it comes to ensuring the
complete safety of occupants throughout all areas under their
control," said Jon Engebretsen, product manager of electronic
locks at Assa Abloy Hospitality. "The VingCard E100 is
specifically designed to uphold this commitment by extending the
many advantages of RFID security technology into places that were
previously out of reach."
As with other Assa Abloy Hospitality RFID-based
door locks, the E100 is fully compatible with Visionline and can
be used in mixed installations together with the traditional
VingCard mortise locks. Premium versions of the E100 can also be
implemented on fire and escape route doors.
