Besides a tight economy placing constraints on locksmith’s ability to inventory a large assortment of products, and simply stay afloat, an uncertain economy severely impacts the public’s desire and ability to purchase systems.

Kaba has employed intelligent design in the progressive evolution of the Simplex and E-Plex series, so as to minimize the locksmith’s required inventories, and to make upgrades to existing installations to ones with enhanced security features not only feasible but aesthetically and fiscally attractive to end-users.

It means that the locksmith can upsell a client without having to break the news that a total retooling will be required, or that the client’s current equipment represents no equity.

Additionally the constant buzz about new developments in technology scares prospects because they’re afraid whatever they buy today will be declared obsolete before the ink dries on their final payment check.

Although I do not know who coined the phrase about quality never going out of style, it is reassuring to dealers and clients alike that Kaba has a long and excellent track record in access control. The quality of their products, expressed in robust mechanical lock assemblies and constantly expanding options and programming features, means that both your customers’ premises and their investment are secure when they select Kaba .

This article will focus on the Kaba 5700 Series which offers dual-credential capabilities (P.I.N. & Credential), but all the KABA products should be considered to put the 5700 solution into context with other Kaba offerings. All Kaba’s Simplex and E-Plex locks are UL and BHMA certified.

Kaba Access Control’s 5700 series E-Plex locks provide your clients with future-proof feature rich access control, and meet your needs for a standardized solution for a variety of access control security applications.

Kaba Ilco ostensibly started the revolution away from key control to pushbutton access control with its legendary single code SIMPLEX mechanical pushbutton locks which still provide a cost-effective solution for numerous security applications.
