Patents and Protection of Design /global/scaled/5616x2443x0x624x1000x435/Other-assalockCOM-High-Res-Resources-Mountains_sky.jpg For ASSA, patents and protection of design are a part of the development of our products. That is why we work actively to formulate and apply for patents and protection of design for the processes we use, and for the products we market. In addition, ASSA holds several licenses on active patents. Our active patent and pattern strategy includes monitoring other patents and patent applications in the industry. One of the main reasons for ASSA’s active patent and pattern strategy is to create legal protection for our customers and users.Key control means that no one can copy a patented key without the express permission of ASSA. This also benefits the quality of the mechanical and electromechanical systems that ASSA markets, since they cannot be compromised by the inclusion of cheap copies.Immediate legal measures will be taken for all breaches and infringements of ASSA’s patents.
