ABLOY IP54-rated Integrated Dust Cover

ABLOY IP54-rated Integrated Dust Cover

One of the things that keep security managers on high alert is the real possibility the security locks used to safeguard their properties may unexpectedly fail due to environmental conditions. The situation becomes more critical when it involves a remote location where it may be days or longer before the failure is discovered. But a unique new solution from ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure offers high performance reliability, peace of mind and more.

The IP54-rated Integrated Dust Cover with an internal shield is designed specifically for ABLOY® mechanical and PROTEC2 CLIQ™ cylinders. Most locks experience failure due to weather related conditions such as dust, grime and moisture. It protects internal components with a built-in, springloaded shutter that blocks the key opening and reduces expose to the elements. Once a key is inserted and removed, the shutter snaps back into place.

”I consider the Integrated Dust Cover to be a Cadillac type solution because it greatly improves the life, durability and functionality of our products for Critical Infrastructure,” said Jerry Burhans, managing director of ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure. ”We are making it available for nearly the entire ABLOY line, including our Cam locks, deadbolts and water-tight padlocks. If you currently pay for a maintenance kit to clean your locks, it will save you money in the long run.”

”Water and electronics don’t mix well, making it an excellent solution,” said Raymond Marquis, vertical market manager – Distribution & OEM, for ABLOY USA Critical Infrastructure. ”With our Integrated Dust Cover, lock components are resistant to wear and corrosion that occurs due to dirt, moisture and freezing conditions. Powerplants, substations, water utilities and remote locations are some applications that would benefit from using it. So would facility managers who use CLIQ products to secure unmanned gates and doors that are exposed to the elements.”

Integrated Dust Covers are now available for Key-In-Knob and Key-In-Lever applications, such as the ABLOY CYLP410T replacement cylinder for specific Schlage deadbolts and the CYLP412T complete deadbolt with thumbturn. This technology is also found in ABLOY CLIQ Cam locks and all Mortise, LFIC and Euro Din cylinders.
