ABLOY Debuts New Traffic Enclosure Locks Series
ABLOY USA’s new Traffic Enclosure Locks can adapt mechanically and electromechanically and are built with tamper-proof features.
ABLOY, a security solutions provider, introduces its Traffic Enclosure Locks, the only hybrid products that can adapt mechanically and electromechanically, according to the company.
Made of brass construction and featuring a dust cover to protect the cylinder opening, the 75481 series can be used in many applications and is a leading product for roadside traffic enclosures.
“There are over 500,000 managed traffic intersections in the U.S. that are eligible for an upgrade. Currently, the marketplace is flooded with a single version that relies on using only one key,” said Joe Brown, vertical market manager of transportation for ABLOY USA. “Our 75481 series provides the right solution for three distinct applications. The first is product specific with less cylinder, such as any Key-In-Knob Schlage. There also is the mechanical PROTEC2 and the electromechanical ABLOY CLIQ™.”
The need to secure traffic critical infrastructure is becoming increasingly complicated due to new traffic cabinet technology, says the company. With only a one-key option, red flags are raised with access accountability once a key is lost or stolen. ABLOY 75481 series prevents this from happening.
”Typically, traffic locks are replaced when a latching mechanism fails,” continued Brown. ”Key control – or the lack thereof – is a significant indicator when it is time to replace these locks. We have the ability to provide an exceptional and reliable solution that offers a complete value proposition to the traffic transportation marketplace.”
Within the 75481 series, there are 12 brass models to pick from, and each left- or right-handed bolt and slam latch is constructed with an attack-resistant design and tamper-proof features.
“The Slam Lock is very common and it depends on how the cabinet is currently configured, either as a deadlatch or a deadbolt. With regards to weather, PROTEC2 and the CLIQ cylinder are especially good in extreme conditions,” Brown said.
