November 20, 2014, Salem, Va. – The runner up for the 2014 Industry Partner Award is ASSA ABLOY’s Medeco Security Locks for their Medeco³ CLIQ product.

Leveraging Innovation, an environmentally friendly and cost efficient design for school security utilizes the latest electronic and mechanical technology in cylinders and keys to provide schools with security that can change as needs do, and enforces access accountability to every user and opening. Administrators know exactly when rooms or records have been accessed and by whom. The highly sophisticated system is housed in a standard hardware retrofit cylinder, allowing access control to be installed on a door in just minutes, simply by exchanging the existing mechanical cylinder with Medeco³ CLIQ cylinder. Medeco³ CLIQ cylinders are made from over 70% recycled materials and all electronics are RoHS compliant.
