SALTO Systems European profile GEO cylinders have received BZ+ physical security equipment certification from VdS, one of Germany’s leading independent testing institutions for fire protection and security.
As approved by VdS, these electronic cylinders deliver high levels of protection against picking attacks and medium protection against aggravated burglary. They are approved for use as ancillary control equipment alongside burglar alarm systems (according to VdS 2119). They come with integrated pulling protection and thus may be used together with a burglar resistant security plate of class B (or higher) without pulling protection.
This certification is valid for SALTO European profile half cylinders, European profile cylinders with thumb turn, European profile double cylinders, and European profile cylinders cog-wheel cam with product numbers G8Exx and G9xx.
All GEO cylinders are completely integrated within SALTO System’s XS4 access control platform. They support SALTO Virtual Network (SVN) as well as several contactless RFID systems, such as Mifare, DESfire, DESfire EV1, Legic prime and Legic advant.
