Allegion is changing the way commercial building owners and tenants think about interior building access Allegion plc is highlighting its innovation pipeline, advancements in technology development, and additions to the company's safety and security product portfolio. Electronic locks will be a major component in the evolution of connected and smart-building applications. One product leading the way in the residential sector is the Schlage®Touchscreen Deadbolt. In June, the Schlage®Touchscreen Deadbolt with alarm was rated #1 in residential electronic connected locks by a leading consumer product review publication. "With the highest grade one security rating, built in alarm technology and fingerprint resistant touchscreens, our Schlage® electronic locks are pioneering the way to the keyless era," said Dave Petratis, president, chairman and CEO, Allegion. The company is also making advancements in the commercial real estate market. With the release of the newly announced ENGAGE™ technology, Allegion is changing the way commercial building owners and tenants think about interior building access. ENGAGE™ technology is designed to work with a wireless electronic version of the Schlage® ND series lock, making it one of the toughest commercial locks, yet easy to install, connect, manage and use. Petratis believes these factors will accelerate the adoption rate of electronic locks in the commercial market. "The ENGAGE™ enabled product line reduces the cost of installation and ownership while offering the same Schlage quality and durability business owners have come to rely on" "The wireless Schlage® NDE lock is ideal for interior office doors, entrances to common areas and sensitive storage rooms. The ENGAGE™ enabled product line reduces the cost of installation and ownership while offering the same Schlage quality and durability business owners have come to rely on," Petratis said.

Allegion isn't just focused on advancements in electronic locks. The company is also making it easier for people to exit buildings. The new Von Duprin® AX exit device is the first device on the market that meets enhanced California Building Codes which require that an exit device operate with less than five pounds of force. The Von Duprin® AX device is the first UL certified exit device to meet this strict requirement, showcasing Allegion's expertise when it comes to navigating the complex codes and standards within the building industry. And, of course, the AX device comes with the durability and functionality that Von Duprin® has been putting into exit devices for more than a century.
