Keylex Digital Locks Provide Staff Access at Weston's New College

04 November 2016

Keylex 700s at the new North Somerset Enterprise & Technology College Campus

Keylex 700 at Weston CollegeKeylex mechanical digital locks have been installed on four Staff Room doors
and the First Aid Room at the new North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College campus, just completed by main contractor BAM Construction.

The locks were supplied by Relcross via our established trade partner
IRM (Bristol) Ltd of Yate. This solution provides a common access control solution
(the Keylex product is used elsewhere at the college) allowing immediate access
for authorized users without the need of access control credentials
such as proximity cards. 

Keylex 700 Series for European Style Cylinder Lock Cases

The Keylex 700 series was used again at the College and provides standard duty, high security access control on doors where a flexible Euro profile key system is required. The narrow stile Keylex 700 design, with its built-in clutch mechanism protecting the lock furniture, will suit all stile widths down to 45mm and is particularly suited for use on aluminium and hollow metal door sections. The Keylex 700 can be expected to give many years’ service if specified and maintained correctly. Keylex 700 on Timber Door

Relcross Sales and Marketing Director, Stuart McMaster, said “while electronic access control can be very effective there are still circumstances where a mechanical digital lock is the best option. It’s a quick fix solution. No wiring is required, there are no batteries to replace, just solid mechanical reliability for which Keylex locks are renowned.”
