INDIANAPOLIS, July 19, 2021 – Access control solutions leader dormakaba will showcase multiple innovations in booth 14027 at ISC West, July 19-21, 2021, in Las Vegas, that enhance confidence, safety, and security as people resume in-person activities and return to buildings.

“The vital role access solutions play to make today’s buildings safe, healthy and sustainable has only intensified due the pandemic,” said Alex Housten, COO of dormakaba Americas. “Buildings fulfill their mission best when they inspire occupant confidence in the quality of the environment, enabling people to reconnect and re-engage in daily living and collaborative working. It’s the people behind every installation that are driving the advancement of access solutions for the future.  You are invited to interact with our dormakaba solutions and meet our team of access experts in ISC West Booth #14027, where our technology, design, and innovation are on display for you.”

The way people move through spaces and buildings is going to look completely different in just a few years. See the innovations dormakaba is creating and give your feedback on the changing access landscape for businesses, governments, schools, hospitals, cities, and more. 

Touch-Free Access 

As the world rebuilds and reopens together, people are demanding a new approach to access – a touch-free experience that seamlessly integrates safety, security, and convenience. Solutions like touch-free actuators, safe checkpoint towers, touch-free turnstiles, electronic access, and mobile access make people feel safe, while making access simpler and more intuitive. 

Take the “Make the Switch” Challenge 

dormakaba introduced BEST Switch™ Tech in 2020 and it is setting the standard on how to extend electronic access control to applications previously not practical. Switch Tech will work wherever SFICs do, including cylindrical, mortise and other locks by BEST, Sargent, Yale, Corbin Russwin, Schlage and more. It is ideal for retrofitting electronic control into existing doors on interior rooms, closets, cabinets and cases. Just how easy is it to install Switch Tech locks into an existing interior lock core? dormakaba is setting up an interior door and letting attendees change a traditional lock system to a Switch Tech lock system. 

Alvarado First-of-Its-Kind Full Height Turnstile   

Alvarado’s new MST-TE Touch-Free Full Height Turnstile provides smooth, secure, and completely contactless passage for users. It is 100 percent touch-free and motorized. After users present a valid entry credential, the turnstile unlocks, and an overhead sensor detects the user as they enter. Rotation begins and completes automatically, eliminating the need for users to touch and push their way through the turnstile as they enter or exit. 

UNIQUIN Demountable Interior Glass Partition   

Beauty and functionality are no longer mutually exclusive thanks to the UNIQUIN glass wall system from dormakaba. UNIQUIN is a new interior, demountable multifunctional wall system for commercial office room configuration. It offers the possibility to individually design and separate interior space with glass – for higher transparency and advanced well-being.   

Saffire LX™ Smart Solutions 

Multihousing properties now have the ability to issue mobile credentials for added resident convenience. The new Saffire LX Series from dormakaba features sophisticated technology in an award winning, contemporary design. Easy-to-use, flexible and secure, the Saffire LX Series enhances access control convenience for residents and improves operational efficiency for property managers.  

New LA GARD 700 Series Locks  

dormakaba has refreshed its popular line of LA GARD electronic locks and keypads, including firmware functions and software, with best-in-class updates for added security and usability. The new five-model LA GARD 700 Series features a modern keypad design that maintains the physical security of our longstanding locking mechanism with new features that meet and exceed market needs for personal, commercial, financial and government safes.
