Ingersoll Rand Introduces New Schlage Commercial Security Products

New deadbolt, plus key systems introduced to aid in commercial mechanical access control

The redesigned Schlage Everest B SFIC is operated through a patented key management system to provide security professionals with peace of mind. Compatible with interchangeable core locks from competitive manufacturers, the Schlage Everest B SFIC can be instantly used to replace a core and maintain security during instances when keys are lost or personnel changes are made.

The redesigned SFIC is engineered using a sophisticated, burr-free manufacturing process that drills pin holes into the lock's individual components during the pre-assembly phase rather than after the core has been assembled. This controlled process provides a core tolerance that delivers excellent resistance to cylinder manipulation. In a locksmith pick test, the redesigned SFIC showed a significant reduction in the quantity of picked cores, which was lower than competitive products.

Additionally, the seven-pin core is noticeably easier to operate than its competitors, requiring 60 percent less force for insertion and rotation. The core's accurate design also helps to reduce the amount of time spent with core maintenance by minimizing key breakage and extending the life of the cylinder.

Available in three stylish finishes, the redesigned ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 SFIC can match almost any existing lock to provide a consistent look within a facility or office environment.
