Salto Systems has introduced a new RFID-enabled lock cylinder which offers a security alternative in situations where conventional electronic locks are not practical.
The Salto device fits a range of doors, from modern tubular steel designs to antique doors where an electronic handset would be either aesthetically inappropriate or not allowed by historic preservation codes. The British Airports Authority has already installed it in 2000 doors at Heathrow airport.
The lock is available in versions compatible with a number of RFID formats, and all versions are compatible with other Salto security solutions. Among its safety features are a panic design that allows it to always be opened from the inside, and a Portable Programming Device which can always be used to open the lock in emergency situations.
