Sentinel 6 marches on

Adams Rite’s newly developed mortise mechanical deadlock – Sentinel 6 - has been short-listed for Physical Security Product of the Year at the leading security event IFSEC 2009, to be held at the NEC in Birmingham, 11-14 May.

Sentinel 6 meets the toughest security standards, making it the ideal solution to upgrade existing locks. This offers customers valuable upgrades to existing door security solutions, as well as the reassurance that their doorsets meet the latest stringent industry standards.

Andy Stolworthy, product manager at Adams Rite, explained: “We are delighted with being short-listed for these awards. 

“Ensuring that our locks meet the toughest standards is vitally important and we see Sentinel 6 as playing a crucial role in helping to upgrade existing doorsets as well as delivering best in class for new door security solutions.  IFSEC is one of the most important events in the calendar for Adams Rite; to have Sentinel 6 recognised as a leading physical security product is a great accolade.”

The new Sentinel 6 offers significant benefits over some earlier designed locks and has been developed to meet the specific and exacting criteria of BS EN12209 security grade 6.

Designed for the commercial aluminium door market, it offers high level security due to the combined strength of a bar bolt and anti-spread feature of the hook bolt.

 Its slim-line lock case makes it more suited to thermally broken sections as well as the more traditional single chambered aluminium sections and can be easily retro-fitted, replacing the MS2200.

The deadlock operates with a 17mm Europrofile cylinder, and is available in three backset sizes – 25, 30 and 40mm.

Visitors to IFSEC 2009 can talk to experts from Adams Rite and see Sentinel 6 demonstrated at the ASSA ABLOY stand at E10 Hall 3.  For more information and to book an appointment with a representative on the stand please email:
