Compared to typical hotel locks, Opera iControl offers exceptional room security, auto-deadbolting the door with a magnetic latch and steel deadbolt. To exit the room, the guest pushes down the handle, releasing both latch and deadbolt conforming to anti-panic requirements. The lock is CE marked and fire-tested to EN1634 up to FD60.
Designed and manufactured to the highest standards and backed by the Kasp ten-year guarantee, Kasp 145 Marine padlocks are available in two security levels (medium and high); 40mm and 50mm, standard and long shackle, both keyed to differ and keyed alike combinations.
Latch is designed for urban areas and allows residents to open doors using either a magnetic key card, smartphone, or code.

The Auto Locksmiths EXhibition (ALEX), the only strictly auto locksmith exhibition in Europe, was held last weekend at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel. Locksmiths came in droves by car, rail and air from all corners of the UK and even across the channel!
We had visitors from Scotland, Bournemouth, Devon, London and even Ireland, Belgium and Holland, many of whom took advantage of the excellent overnight facilities available at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel. A few even floated in from wet Wales.
