The customer’s requirement for dormakaba

  • High-quality design and flexibility
  • Security of specially protected areas

dormakaba’s solution

For not very long now 44 Kaba evolo digital cylinders and four wall readers have been providing protection to the extraordinarily well-preserved ice mummy and his paraphernalia. The bid for equipping the archaeology museum with a new, electronic access system was won by dormakaba sales partner, Zenleser, with the high-quality products of the Kaba evolo family. These elegant products from dormakaba fit inconspicuously with the reduced exhibition concept. All the doors in the building have been equipped with Kaba evolo digital cylinders, which impress with their compact design and ease of use. They identify RFID access media very quickly, check their authorisation and then enable the door to be opened. The beautiful wall readers grant access to the lift and to the turnstiles via which you can make your way to the internal areas, provided you have the proper authorisation.
