ASSA ABLOY’s EcoFlex™ Mortise Locks with High Security Monitoring Win 2015 ASIS Accolades Award

Anaheim, California, September 28, 2015 — ASSA ABLOY’s EcoFlex™ electrified mortise lock platform with High Security Monitoring, from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT, has won a 2015 ASIS Accolades Security’s Best Award. The awards recognize the security industry’s most innovative products, services and solutions.

The EcoFlex mortise lock platform provides internal end-of-line resistors for comprehensive monitoring of the circuit between the access control panel and lock. End-of-line resistors are commonly improperly installed at the access control panel or above the door, leaving the wiring to the lock vulnerable to undetected tampering or damage. In addition, the labor to add end-of-line resistors at the site increases installation costs and jeopardizes quality by relying on manual installation.

Integrating the end-of-line resistors into the lock not only eliminates the risk of undetected tampering, but reduces installation costs, simplifies specification, and offers the assurance of a factory installed and tested product.

EcoFlex electrified mortise locks are also now available with a deadbolt privacy function that disables remote access control unlocking (such as a keypad) or scheduled unlock when the deadbolt is engaged. This option is ideal for personal privacy areas such as nursing rooms, on-call doctors’ rooms, and restrooms.

“When we added the option for high security monitoring to the EcoFlex platform, our goal was to elevate an existing access control technology by providing an even greater level of functionality and increased security for a variety of applications,” said Peter Boriskin, VP of Product Management, ASSA ABLOY. “Receiving this recognition from the ASIS organization is one of the highest honors we can achieve for a new technology.”
