Partnership ABUS UK and ALPRO

New partnership offers extra security

Security specialist ABUS UK and access control and door hardware experts Alpro have announced a new partnership agreement.

Alpro is a leading independent supplier of mechanical and electro-mechanical products, specialising in the commercial aluminium door industry, providing door hardware and access control solutions across the UK. The company will now be offering the ABUS X60, ABUS E50PS, and Zolit 1000 cylinders, enabling them to offer a comprehensive range of residential and commercial cylinder options, as well as masterkey solutions across a wide range of door sizes and thicknesses, all based on ABUS quick turnaround masterkeying service.

“The addition of these ABUS cylinder ranges is the perfect natural extension to our existing cylinder business,” says Alpro’s Richard Lawes. “It will allow us to offer our customers enhanced levels of door security as well as extending the services we can offer, thanks to ABUS’s expertise in suiting masterkeyed and keyed alike schemes.”

Peter Romanov, managing director of ABUS says “We are delighted to be able to support Alpro with our cylinder ranges from ABUS. The two companies share similar ideals and standards, and we believe that the ABUS products that Alpro are partnering with us will allow the company to achieve new business, in new markets, with new customers, as well as giving them an extended offering to existing customers.”

The ABUS X60 cylinder is a first-rate 3* cylinder suite with a number of impressive integrated security features, offering a high standard of protection as standard for residential and commercial applications. It has anti-snap, -drill, -bump, -pick, and plug features, and also comes with a full range of accreditation including Secured by Design accreditation, SoldSecure Diamond Standard status, TS007 certification and a Kitemark Approval. The ABUS E50PS will add a standard Euro cylinder system with masterkeying capabilities to the Alpro’s scope.

Alpro will be using ABUS Zolit 1000 across many commercial applications with its high level of master keying capabilities. Zolit is a patented restricted cylinder system with a patented Intop system in both the cylinder and the key, providing effective protection against illegal key copies and manipulation of the lock cylinder. Optional side pins offer extreme flexibility for master keying requirements on the complex projects that Alpro manages, plus Zolit offers strong drill protection with pins made of hardened steel, and protection against key forgery and lock tampering.
