Quality

ABLOY products not only meet requirements of exacting international standards but also national and customer specific standards for high security.

ABLOY quality means products and services that always meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. Trust in the security our solutions provide, their reliability and ease of use has to be earned every day of the year. To guarantee performance in every condition, products are tested to levels more severe than those required in the relevant standards.

Durability

Every ABLOY product is tested for its durability in the conditions where it must operate, with cycles and weighs that exceed those required in the standards. Products are tested both in Abloy’s own testing facility and by official testing authorities.

To mention a few examples, in our tests the ABLOY detainer disc cylinder is subjected to half a million opening events, five times more than is required in the standard’s most-severe test procedures; ABLOY CERTA motor locks are tested with 500.000 cycles with 5 kg sideload – that’s more than twice the standard cycle requirement.

Physical attack

In addition to mechanised testing, durability and reliability are continuously tested manually by hammering, twisting and pulling.

Corrosion

In the corrosion test based on the EN 12320 standard, the test conditions are made more severe by using acetic acid spray instead of salt spray in the testing cabinet.

Quality Certification

Abloy Oy has a quality system certified according to SFS-EN ISO 9001 ever since the 1980’s and an environmental system certified according to SFS-EN ISO 14001 since 1990’s. In 2009, also the occupational health and safety system of Abloy was certified according to OHSAS 18001 standard.
