He said: “Sales of the inlay lock Schlage LE with ENGAGE technology have had a good performance abroad and we have also experienced a growing demand in the UK for wireless technology locks, so we were determined to introduce it here so Soon as we could.
“By using Schlage wireless locks, this gives you the opportunity to take the deepest electronic access control inside the building, which opens up the possibility of using only one type of lock to secure both the interior and the exterior. The benefits of this compared to traditional methods that have tended to focus only on the safety of the building's exterior are enormous.
“In addition to being easy and quick to install, the Schlage is also cost effective and low maintenance, with a battery life of up to two years. We are sure that the combination of this superior product with the ease of maintenance will make it an attractive proposal for managers and specifiers of facilities ”.

The built-in Bluetooth allows LE wireless locks to connect directly to smartphones and tablets. These locks are available in nine finishes, from aged bronze to satin chrome with antimicrobial coating, as well as a large number of lever styles.
