ASSA High Security Key Systems
Twin 6000 Classic – In 1981 this ASSA key system was the first to employ the patented dual independent locking mechanisms providing optimum pick resistance and key control. Marketed to both the locksmith and end user markets, the Twin 6000 allowed the user to “own” their own side code and was the first ASSA system to earn a UL 437 status, tests designed to measure a cylinder’s resistance to picking, pulling, drilling, and forcing attacks.
Twin V-10 - In 1996, ASSA introduced a new patented key system designed to meet commercial hardware needs with millions of master keying combinations. The very narrow keyway inhibits picking tools from easily entering the key way.
Twin Exclusive - Introduced in 2000, Twin Exclusive was a patent-protected upgrade to the Twin 6000 series. Twin Exclusive keys work both Twin Exclusive and 6000 cylinders.
Twin Pro – This system was developed in 2000 for large institutional end users and ASSA Certified Service Centers. ASSA offers training for facilities with in-house locksmiths to service these locks or they can be serviced by an ASSA Certified Service Center.
C4/CLIQ – The ASSA C4 CLIQ electro-mechanical key system is an EAC lock system that combines the best of high security key and cylinder design and electronics. The CLIQTM technology was developed by several ASSA ABLOY companies. This high security key and cylinder with added electronic access control features is powered by a standard lithium battery installed in the key, eliminating the need for hard wiring at the door. Every key inserted into a cylinder is recorded with a time and date audit trail stored in the key and cylinder allowing the user to monitor access.
Twin Maximum - The Twin Maximum system is the ASSA C4/CLIQ key profile. It is now possible to combine extremely large mechanical key master key systems with C4 CLIQTM technology.
Maximum+ - ASSA’s latest high security technology is patent protected to 2029 and features our trademarked Security RidgeTM on the key. Maximum+ is backward compatible to our Twin Maximum system allowing Maximum+ keys to operate both cylinders. All Maximum+ products integrate with the ASSA C4 CLIQ electromechanical access control system.
CLIQ Remote – Developed in 2013 this system allows the customer to administrate his C4 CLIQ system from anywhere there is internet or a cell phone signal available. CLIQ Remote allows you to change authorizations often, with the added protection of a high security mechanical lock. The system is designed for institutions with facilities spread over a large geographical area. One person — regardless of location - can grant or deny access remotely to a building. It also offers keys that are authorized for a programmed time interval, then stop working.
ASSA Medium Security Key Systems
600 Series – The ASSA 600 Series incorporates many High Security features but does not have a sidebar or side pins.
Twin Low – The Twin Low product is a low cost alternative with some Twin 6000 profiles but without the restricted sidebar component. The key holder has the convenience of operating 3 levels of security (Twin Exclusive, Twin 6000 Classic, and Twin Low) with the same key.
500/700 Series – Only key blanks with existing profiles are available by special order to support existing systems.
