PROTEC² CLIQ ensures security at the Musée Maurice Denis without changing its aesthetics or architecture

The Maurice Denis museum houses one of the largest collections of works of art in the symbolist and post-impressionist style. The building itself is an architectural masterpiece. The main challenge involved ensuring security for the museum without changing its aesthetics or architecture, and the works of art also needed to be protected, as did the offices, for confidentiality reasons.

The project required

• A high-security access management system that can be adapted to and integrated discreetly into the architecture of the premises
• Reliable and robust locking technology
• Elimination of key misuse
• An economical and cost-effective system that makes it easier for technical staff to carry out their daily duties

PROTEC² CLIQ fulfilled all of the project's requirements. 70 PROTEC² CLIQ cylinders and padlocks were installed on the museum's doors and windows, both inside and outside, in addition to the weatherproof padlocks that were installed on the CCTV security cameras.

Thanks to their simple, wireless installation, the PROTEC² CLIQ cylinders easily fit alongside the museum's decor, while guaranteeing a high level of security. In addition, their resistance helps to eliminate theft in the event of attempted break-ins.

Access and control over entries and exits have been made easier with the PROTEC² CLIQ keys, thanks to the management of staff rights according to their schedules and functions.

Moreover, the number of keys has been considerably reduced. Internal staff can now access all doors in the building with a single key. As for external personnel, they can retrieve PROTEC² CLIQ keys programmed according to their working hours from TRAKA lockers with combination locks.
