ABUS launches new Vitess cylinder system
ABUS specification security offers all types and sizes of cylinders from a key differed euro cylinder through to a complex grand master suite taking account of euro, latch, screw-in, oval and cabinet cylinders all designed within the same MK key system.
ABUS is proud of the many national and international architectural cons, commercial and educational sites now secured by ABUS locking systems, and even more proud of the distribution partnerships that have made this security possible.
As part of a commitment to ensure new patented systems are developed, ABUS can now offer Vitess - the "simply secure" locking system. Vitess is available either as a brand new system or an upgrade to existing customers on the Y14 system with which it shares a curved key profile.
Additional to Y14, Vitess features the patented "Intop" system, offering future-proof key copy protection. "Intop" is a newly developed verification unit on the key and in the cylinder, preventing unauthorised keys being used in the unlocking process. Together with the coded profile rib and curved multiple paracentric profile, Vitess provides locksmiths with complete protection against the random copying of keys.
The new Vitess system offers triple protection:
- patent protection until 2034
- unlimited trademark protection
- technical protection thanks to the stop pin and profile control pin.
Vitess can be precisely tailored to suit individual requirements, providing the chance to design and or assemble your clients' very own customised security solution - from special classroom or emergency features, down to the type of cylinder and colour choice.
With all ABUS cylinder systems, Vitess can be extended at any time, giving locksmiths and their clients flexibility to make changes as needs arise. As always with any ABUS cylinder you are guaranteed premium quality and a long product service life.
When range, security, efficiency and quality are the centre of your decision, ABUS is the professional choice. With sales only through appointed distribution, competitive pricing and good margins, ABUS also makes excellent commercial sense.
