Innovation meets Design!
ÜLock Novus, the inconspicuousness makes the difference!
To create a product that does not compromise on design and sets a new benchmark when it comes to housing the electronics in terms of security on the product, is compatible with the new trend of Bluetooth connections and opening, and creates new standards in the area of sustainability, these were the points that the developers of Südmetall Group were striving for.
With visibly great pride, the new ÜLock Novus solution was presented at security essen 2022. The name Novus was also chosen precisely because of the many new possibilities (innovation aspects) that one wants to offer the market.
The ÜLock Novus is a new development, based on the ÜLock wireless security lock Battery and Inductive, which has already been introduced by the manufacturer for years, an SVP lock with 20 mm latch bolt excavation as well as wireless and Bluetooth connectivity options.
The RFID reader unit in the ÜLock Novus is accommodated in the smallest possible space in the key rosette, which means that lever handle models can be freely selected in terms of design and color, and a mechanical profile cylinder for emergency opening is also retained – design requirements no longer have to give way to functional solutions!
Security at the door has always been a basic need for man, therefore Südmetall has made it its business to integrate the entire electronics of access control into the lock and has also implemented this skillfully. All sensitive components are contained in the lock case and are protected by both the door and the lock. On the outside of the key rosette there is only the reader unit, which forwards the card data to the evaluation unit in the lock and cannot be manipulated.
Bluetooth in combination with smartphone apps are gaining ground on the European market. Südmetall follows this trend and has equipped the new ÜLock Novus with a Bluetooth module. With the help of this Bluetooth interface, both control via smartphone and specific variants for OEM customers can be realized.
Südmetall sets new standards for sustainable construction
Sustainable building and running costs are topics that every builder or specialist planner has to deal with sooner or later. With the ÜLock Novus, Südmetall has achieved a perfect symbiosis of both aspects. On the one hand, the new solution shines through its very simple retrofitting properties, since on the one hand no additional drilling, milling or holes are required for installation. On the other hand, no cables or transitions need to be pulled, thanks to batteries that are skilfully integrated in the lock case, invisible to the user, and can be replaced via the lock forend. In addition, however, the ÜLock Novus is also available as an inductive variant from the first series onwards and puts an end to the tiresome process of replacing batteries, as batteries are constantly charged from the strike plate into the lock by induction. Considering how many batteries have to be replaced annually for access control in Germany, this product is a true game-changer for sustainable building in the future.
