Minden-based furniture lock specialist Lehmann, a system supplier, is backing a strong trend at this year’s interzum. Their expertise in developing consistent, integrated systems for office applications has put the focus on the Dial Lock combination lock. In addition there are multiple applications for turning attractive, functional storage space design ideas into reality.
Conceived as ‘keyless security’, the Dial Lock crosses the divide between mechanical and electronic locking systems. Lehmann is now showing the four-wheel combination lock as a complete system for the first time. What this means is that the system can be used in any application, from sliding doors to shutters, card index units, containers, doors and flap doors. On top of that there are the different types of lock, such as lever, bolt and catch lock and multi-point locking which permit a broad range of applications with right-hand, left-hand and drawer locking.
Whereas previously only a small number of applications lent themselves to the Dial Lock, furniture manufacturers can now cover the full span of possible applications with the Dial Lock system in their standard furniture lines. Manufacturers benefit from lower logistics costs as the delivery to the customer is unprogrammed, i.e., neutral. Furthermore, the system avoids the need for a lock plan management system and the advice and administration that entails.
The Dial Lock system contains a permanently allocated access code for temporary permanent users and user groups. Each user can select a code of their choice for an undefined period. The assigned code is input once only to open the lock, with no need to enter a code again when closing it. In addition, the scrambling system provides increased security against unauthorised opening. Reprogramming for a change of user is easy, and creating user groups is also straightforward.
Lehmann is also giving these technical solutions a colourful look. The locks can be painted in the customer’s chosen colour for orders of 200 or more. For bigger production orders the housings are injection-moulded from coloured plastic. The standard colours – matt chrome lacquer, black and white – are deliberately classic because colour trends tend to follow fashion.
