Streamlined security solution

The integration between Vanderbilt and Allegion provides joint customers with a cost-effective solution to meet evolving security needs while adding more options for organisations seeking streamlined installation and administration.

The locks are ideal for the small-to-medium-sized enterprise organisations, and are designed for interior office doors, common area doors and sensitive storage spaces.
