Fixed Locking Bar
This locking bar is installed horizontally (choosing the size of the locking bar according to door width), is extremely bend-resistant and pick-resistant, the deadbolt engages in cramp-irons walled or anchored in the wall, providing protection against attack and unhinging. It is operated by a special round cylinder with 7 pins, armoured externally by an attack-resistant and anti-drill plate.
It has the same high security features as the fixed one plus the ability to easily adapt to doors of different width, between 73 and 98 cm. It is also equipped with an effective anti-attack device, activated by a single throw, which allows you to keep the door ajar and communicate with the outside in absolute security. It is operated by a European profile 7-pin cylinder of special length, armoured externally by an attack-resistant and anti-drill plate.
This locking bar can be installed on all types of accesses (doors, shutters, French doors, skylights, etc) both horizontally and vertically, can be shortened very easily to the required size (up to 65 cm) or extended using an appropriate kit (even over 4 m, for example for garage doors or roller shutters) and operated by an European profile cylinder. The cylinder can be armoured with an attack-resistant and anti-drill security escutcheon, provided.
This locking bar combines all the security features of the mechanical version with an intrusion-detection vibration sensor, a GSM dialler and a room listening microphone all incorporated withing the locking bar fitted to the apartment door.
By simply inserting a SIM card and storing the numbers to be notified in case of attempted theft, the electronic module housed in the Locking Bar detects any burglary attempts, sends an advanced warning text message to preset numbers and calls the first stored number. To evaluate whether or not an attempted theft is underway, the locking bar allows you to listen remotely, in real time, to what is happening in the room in which it is installed.This provides you with an advanced warning re an attempted burglary, if you sitting away from your door you will receive a text so you can react to deter any burglary.
