In advance of installation, ASSA ABLOY provided a detailed survey and introduced their trusted reseller and partner. To date, almost 15,000 locking cylinders and padlocks have been fitted at Electricity North West Limited multiple sites. The installed CLIQ system offers high flexibility, as mechanical cylinders and padlocks were installed in conjunction with the electromechanical CLIQ cylinders across all the sites.
Electricity North West Limited is also using almost 2,000 CLIQ user keys and over 40 CLIQ programming devices to update access rights of keys remotely. Company's old brass padlocks had on occasion been targeted by thieves for their scrap value. The new padlocks all meet required security standards, are tested to BS EN12320 and are certified to LPS 1654.
The CLIQ software supports the complex workflow of the utility company, by enabling audit trails to be generated for individual locks, keys or system users. If a key is lost, this no longer creates a major security risk because all keys can be activated, access changed or removed using the CLIQ Web Manager software, making a truly dynamic secure system.
