At DEMOS Wohnbau’s new PRISMA PASING residential project in Munich, Germany the ASSA ABLOY CY110 (IKON RW6) mechanical locking system has been selected to equip entrance and apartment doors.

According to ASSA ABLOY, this dimple key platform is a convenient solution for either small or large master key systems – combining security, reliability and simple operation within a single mechanical locking system of around 1,000 cylinders and 2,000 keys.

The residential project includes 255 apartments and when completing the project, DEMOS stipulated that doors should be secured with mechanical cylinders within a structured, hierarchically organised system. The company also said that the master key system should regulate all access authorisations with locking hierarchies according to individual requirements, down to the level of the individual keyholder.

The CY110 cylinders are locked and unlocked using reversible keys made of solid nickel silver to withstand metal fatigue. The Euro cylinders with six-pin technology have an extended lifetime of at least 500,000 lock/unlock cycles. 

With a choice of double, single and thumbturn cylinders, a CY110 system can accommodate every door function in a building. ASSA ABLOY says that its cylinders outperform basic EN 1303 standards, offering high performance at an affordable price. Indeed, the system achieves close to the maximum rating for cylinder-type locking.

Additionally, keyholders only need to carry one key to unlock their entrance and apartment doors. In PRISMA’s master key system, access authorisations are structured hierarchically according to clear specifications.

These locking cylinders also offer a high level of burglary protection with respect to manual opening techniques, like picking, bumping and pulling, ASSA ABLOY notes. Patent protection through 2036 makes it illegal to copy any key at the premises without authorisation.

“CY110 is a genuine, trusted ‘fit and forget’ locking solution, where convenience, flexibility and durability come together,” explained Christoph Kraberg, Business Development Manager Multi-Residential at ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH. “The system helps managers create a master key hierarchy which efficiently organises building security.”
