M&C To Sponsor LockExpo 2019
LockExpo is excited to announce our sponsor for 2019, M&C. https://m-c.eu/en/
Based in the Netherlands and trading throughout Europe, the long-established Dutch high security cylinder manufacturer is expanding their operation into the UK market. Their product range of security cylinders, security door handle sets and mortice locksets all meet the demands of the highly esteemed Dutch quality mark SKG and the PKVW police hallmark, offering solutions that are “more than secure.”
Their unique combination of know-how and field experience combined with their care, dedication, competitive pricing and outstanding quality has brought them 30 years of success on the continent.
Some of the first products to make their way over the channel will be the high security modular Condor and Matrix cylinders. These cylinders combine anti-pick, anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-impressioning technologies and both carry SKG and PKVW police hallmarks (the Condor also carries Sold Secure Gold certification) on a choice of dimple format or regular cylinder key. As with all M&C products, they come with a 5 year warranty.
Nigel Tolley, UK Technical Lead, told us more:
"The extreme modularity of the entire M&C cylinder range, and the unique pre-pinned systems, mean that a small keyed alike system can be easily built on site and fitted inside an hour, with no fiddling with pins - while also maintaining security standards as the locksmith never has to touch the pins!
“Of course, if you want to key up a system for yourself, you can. Or you can pass the system building to us for rapid delivery to you. And, to ensure we both get continued business, we can assign you your very own geographic sidebar profile on the higher level systems, and ensure no-one else can cut your keys. These keys are also designed to resist copying by blank duplication machines, however sophisticated, to ensure continued future customer security.
"With an eye on mobile locksmiths, with the pre-cut sidebar "laser snake" already on your Matrix system keys, you can quickly sell additional high security keys to your customer using your regular cylinder machine in the van, without needing expensive angled dimple cutting machines. Or, if you prefer, the Condor is on a dimple key. Almost all parts are interchangeable as well,and so flexible you could in fact have a different key type and finish on either end of the same security rated cylinder!"
You can see M&C at Lockexpo on the 2nd and 3rd of March on stand B16. Register now for your free visitor pass! https://lockexpo.co.uk/visitor-registration
