dormakaba announces its new patent for the Kaba 20 Long Life protected master key system

Global leader of access control and security solutions, dormakaba, has announced a new European patent – valid until 2033 – applying to its Kaba 20 key blanks, keys and the overall functionality. An evolution on its successful Kaba 20 cylinder system, the improved design delivers the highest levels of security, reliability and sustainability.

The new patent has been specifically designed to offer enhanced strength and durability – an ideal choice for industrial applications that require secure access in some of the most demanding environments.

The new patent features a unique cylinder design which has been precision engineered to specific tolerances and incorporates up to 27 pins – an increase on the original 22 pin lock. This intricate system provides a high degree of protection against attempted manipulation, allowing users to have total confidence in the integrity of the system.

As well as an upgrade to the lock, the entire Kaba 20 Long Life protected master key system has been enhanced to deliver superior security. The uniquely designed key features a controlled milling process to regulate and protect the copying of the key; duplicate keys are only available directly from the factory with a pre-arranged authorisation process.

Further to providing a market leading product, dormakaba also offers a technical consultancy to engineer specific solutions and functionality for bespoke customer requirements.

“We are thrilled to add the new patent Kaba 20 Long Life protected master key system to our superior product portfolio,” commented Clive Baker, Director of Security Locking at dormakaba. “At dormakaba we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality access systems and believe the new extended patent is the ideal product for those seeking the most secure controlled access.”
