Unique: the patented Intop system*

The Intop system is a newly developed verification unit on the key and in the cylinder, which prevents an unauthorised key from being used in the locking process. Together with the coded profile rib and multiple paracentric profile, it provides you with effective protection against the illegal copying of keys and door lock tampering.
