Fire safety and security hardware specialist unveils the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology
Allegion UK has launched a new generation of wireless mortise lock.
The Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology has been developed specifically to extend effective electronic access control throughout the interior of a building, in addition to exterior doors, providing a single, secure locking device for entire buildings.
Ideal for multiple commercial settings, as well as medical centres, higher education institutions, and senior living homes; the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology is easy to install, connect and manage.
Trevor Ball, Allegion business development manager for the UK and Ireland, said the positive feedback and sales it has received in the USA since its launch in 2017 had helped to accelerate the product’s introduction to the UK.
“Sales of the Schlage LE mortise lock with ENGAGE technology have been performing well overseas and we have also been experiencing a growing demand in the UK for wireless technology locks, so we were determined to introduce it here as soon as we could.
“By using the Schlage wireless locks, this gives you the opportunity to bring electronic access control deeper inside the building, which opens up the potential for a single lock type to be used to secure the inside as well as the outside.
“The benefits of this, compared to traditional methods which have tended to focus only on the security of the building exterior, are enormous.
“As well as being easy and quick to install; the Schlage is also cost effective and low maintenance, with up to two years’ battery life.”
Schlage LE wireless locks combine the lock, credential reader, door-position sensor, and request-to-exit switch in a single unit. Crucially, there are no wires to run to the lock and no additional hardware is required.
And built-in Bluetooth enables the LE wireless locks to connect directly to smart phones and tablets.
The locks are available in nine finishes, from aged bronze to satin chrome with antimicrobial coating, as well as a host of lever styles.
