ASSA CLIQ Remote System at Loughborough University
ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has supplied its CLIQ™ electromechanical locks to the engineering suite at Loughborough University.
Loughborough University’s campus has miles and miles of electrical cabling, gas piping and data communications, which demand a responsive engineering team to safely and securely maintain the day-to-day requirements of the university.
The engineering suite’s master key system is the most expansive on site and required a high security solution that would also deliver a level of convenience, to ensure that administrating and managing the large number of keys and cylinders is as easy as possible.
ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote system was installed, providing a simple and intelligent electromechanical locking system to improve security, despite restrictive budgets.
The CLIQ™ Remote system allows only those with the necessary authority to obtain access to private areas, without inconveniencing others.
CLIQ™ Remote has the functionality to create time defined user keys, allowing access for a specified period of time. This is a useful feature for maintenance workers and contractors who may need to access the engineering suite outside normal working hours.
Simon Wilson, National Sales Manager – CLIQ™ Remote, at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said:
“Having worked with Loughborough University on a number of high profile projects, it was an honour to help the university make the right decision for their key management.
“ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote delivers the highest level of security from a key solution, whilst enabling the convenience of access control. CLIQ™ is an investment that could safeguard Loughborough University’s vital services, which will result in long term cost savings.”
Phil Sheppard from Loughborough University, said:
“ASSA ABLOY have provided a multitude of trustworthy security solutions across our campus over the years. Consequently, we turned to ASSA’s expertise to deliver an easy to operate electromechanical solution, that would provide both high security and convenience of use – CLIQ™ was our preferred choice.
“CLIQ™ allows us to easily overview what happens in the lock system, through providing an audit trail archive. It also has a strong patent that will protect our keys from being illegally copied throughout the time that the patent is valid, making it an optimal security solution for us.”
