ASSA ABLOY launches ASSA Triton² cylinder platform with patent until 2036

The Door Hardware and Access Control Group, which is a business unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK and Ireland, has launched its high-security and patented ASSA Triton² cylinder platform.

ASSA Triton² is a high-end master key solution with long-life patent protection until 2036. The solution has been expertly designed and extensively tested in Scandinavia to guarantee the high quality, exceptional durability and excellent performance expected from an ASSA cylinder.

ASSA Triton²’s “unrivalled” master keying capability is suited to environments that require large and complex master key suites, such as hospitals and healthcare estates where key control and durability are paramount.

ASSATriton2

The comprehensive range of cylinders in the ASSA Triton² range, along with the master keying capability, guarantees that this new solution meets the requirements of the largest and most complex suites.

Network of Vantage Partners

ASSA Triton² is exclusively available through ASSA ABLOY’s authorised network of ASSA Vantage Partners, providing customers with the assurance they will be served through only the most trusted and capable partners. ASSA Triton² cylinders and keys can only be ordered, assembled or cut by their ASSA Vantage Partner, in turn affording complete security and peace of mind.

ASSA Triton² features an undercut profile resistant to 3D copying and other patented features, ensuring that a given suite will not be compromised. The platform exceeds the requirements laid out in BS EN 1303:2015. It offers Grade 6, the highest level of key-related security.

Furthermore, ASSA Triton² has been fire tested in accordance with BS EN 1634-1:2000. ASSA ABLOY also supplies an environmental product declaration with ASSA Triton², showcasing its green credentials and compliance with sustainability regulations.

Another key benefit of ASSA Triton² is the ability to upgrade and integrate with ASSA CLIQ Remote (specifically the 5900 range). This combines the strength and durability of a mechanical cylinder and the flexibility of an electronic system with programmable keys, offering flexible control over access rights. That affords end users the flexibility to upgrade part of their suite where the highest level of security and/or controlled access to specific areas is required.

Excellent security

Paul Johnson, director of business development for ASSA cylinders, explained to Risk Xtra: “ASSA ABLOY cylinder platforms are market-leading and world-renowned for their high levels of security, durability and capability.”

Johnson continued: “We’re excited to launch the new ASSA Triton² cylinder platform, which offers excellent security and long-life patent protection until 2036. ASSA Triton²’s excellent master keying capability and comprehensive range means there are no project requirements that ASSA Triton² cannot satisfy.”

ASSATriton2Key
In conclusion, Johnson stated: “We’re looking forward to working with our ASSA Vantage Partners to make ASSA Triton² the only end user choice on large and complex projects, where customers require a premium commercial cylinder platform supported by the highest levels of security and reliability.”
