A top 50 state school in Britain has been provided with CLIQ™ Remote by High Security Locking Ltd and ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions.
Dr Challoner’s Grammar School is a selective grammar school for boys located in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, which was given academy status in January 2011. The school is home to 1,300 students aged 11-18 and has recently been extended to include a sixth form café and an additional library.
High Security Locking worked closely with the school’s resources director to find a key management solution that would protect the school assets and property, but also provide access to members of staff where required, during and out of normal school hours.
ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote system was installed on all external and sensitive area doors at the school, providing a simple and intelligent electromechanical locking system to improve security, despite restrictive budgets.
The CLIQ™ Remote system allows a level of freedom of movement, while restricting access to only those people with the necessary authority in sensitive areas.
ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote has the functionality to create time defined user keys, allowing access for a specified period of time. This is a useful feature for teachers who may need access outside normal working hours for teaching preparation, or for sporting events at weekends.
Bruce Rutter at High Security Locking, said: “We installed ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote system at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School to help improve key control, now the system has been installed the locks should never need resuiteing.”
Simon Wilson, National Sales Manager – CLIQ™ Remote, at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions: “With several teachers, dinner ladies and cleaners all possessing keys within schools, there is always a risk of unauthorised copies of keys and an unknown number of keys being distributed.
“A copied or lost key is an immediate security threat, and replacing lock cylinders and keys combined with administrative work is highly resource-intensive. ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote system helps to minimise administrative work, allowing the administrator to grant access or to block lost or stolen keys remotely and conveniently.”
… at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, said: “ASSA’s CLIQ™ Remote allows our staff to have one single key to access all the areas of school they need to enter. High Security Locking and ASSA were able to offer us the benefit of their extensive experience within the education sector throughout the project.”
ASSA’s mechanical dp cylinders were also included in the same master key system on the internal doors at the school. ASSA’s dp cylinders offer a high level of security and resistance to any current known method of picking and also features billions of usable differs available worldwide.
