Abloy UK at counter terror expo


Abloy UK is showcasing its Cliq Remote electro-mechanical security platform on stand G140 of Counter Terror Expo, the acclaimed event that is especially for those tasked with defending against terrorism.

Abloy UK will also have a presence in the Access Control Zone on stand E166, where visitors can benefit from a live demonstration of Abloy Cliq Remote key authorisation.

Taking place at London’s Olympia centre, Counter Terror Expo is a two-day event that kicks of on 25th April, with delegates from around the world coming together to debate the issues and new technologies that affect defence against terrorism.

The event is the ideal place for Abloy UK to present the benefits of its Cliq Remote system, specifically in terms of securing transport links and utilities, both of which are common targets for terrorist activity.

Abloy Cliq Remote uses web-based software allowing utilities and national infrastructure providers and their contractors to have keys remotely authorised for use in specific operational areas within the existing masterkey system for a pre-determined period of time.  This ensures a high level of key control incorporating maximum flexibility to ensure access in the event of an emergency to nominated key holders.  Cliq Remote provides comprehensive audit trails and the ability to remove lost or stolen Cliq Remote keys from the system, thereby providing tight key management at all times.

In terms of transport, Cliq remote is also ideal for securing railways, particularly when securing external gates and inspection towers.  Cylinders can also be used in the underground vent shafts, power and control rooms.

As part of the event Abloy UK’s Academy Director, Pat Jeffries, will be presenting a seminar entitled “Trends in High Security Access Control”.  The twenty-minute session takes from 11.20am on 26th April.

Jon Burke, Marketing Manager for Abloy UK, said:

“Transport links and utilities are targets for terrorists as they look to cause the maximum disruption.  The first step in securing any multi-site estate is to ensure that access is limited only to those with authorisation.

“We have developed the Cliq Remote system specifically to deal this problem, combining the physical benefits of mechanical locking with electronic technology that can control authorisation from a central location.”
