dormakaba Highlights Access Control Solutions at ISC West

July 19, 2021

dormakaba showcased multiple innovations at ISC West, July 19-21, 2021, in Las Vegas, that enhance confidence, safety and security as people resume in-person activities and return to buildings.

“The vital role access solutions play to make today’s buildings safe, healthy and sustainable has only intensified due the pandemic,” says Alex Housten, COO of dormakaba Americas. “Buildings fulfill their mission best when they inspire occupant confidence in the quality of the environment, enabling people to reconnect and re-engage in daily living and collaborative working. It’s the people behind every installation that are driving the advancement of access solutions for the future.”

Although many solutions were on display, the items below exemplify the new role of access control solutions technology. For more information, visit

Touch-Free Access

As the world rebuilds and reopens together, people are demanding a new approach to access — a touch-free experience that seamlessly integrates safety, security, and convenience. Solutions such as touch-free actuators, safe checkpoint towers, touch-free turnstiles, electronic access and mobile access make people feel safe, while making access simpler and more intuitive.

The “Make the Switch” Challenge

dormakaba introduced BEST Switch Tech in 2020, and it’s setting the standard on how to extend electronic access control to applications previously not practical. Switch Tech will work wherever small-format interchangeable locks do, including cylindrical, mortise and other locks by BEST, Sargent, Yale, Corbin Russwin, Schlage and more. It’s ideal for retrofitting electronic control into existing doors on interior rooms, closets, cabinets and cases. Just how easy is it to install Switch Tech locks into an existing interior lock core? dormakaba set up an interior door and let attendees change a traditional lock system to a Switch Tech lock system.

Alvarado First-of-Its-Kind Full Height Turnstile

Alvarado’s new MST-TE Touch-Free Full Height Turnstile provides smooth, secure and completely contactless passage for users. Its 100 percent touch-free and motorized. After users present a valid entry credential, the turnstile unlocks, and an overhead sensor detects the user as they enter. Rotation begins and completes automatically, which eliminates the necessity for users to touch and push their way through the turnstile as they enter or exit.

UNIQUIN Demountable Interior Glass Partition

Beauty and functionality no longer are mutually exclusive thanks to the UNIQUIN glass wall system from dormakaba. UNIQUIN is a new interior, demountable multifunctional wall system for commercial office room configuration. It provides the possibility to individually design and separate interior space with glass — for higher transparency and advanced well-being.

Multihousing properties now can issue mobile credentials for added resident convenience. The new Saffire LX Series from dormakaba features sophisticated technology in an award winning, contemporary design. Easy-to-use, flexible and secure, the Saffire LX Series enhances access control convenience for residents and improves operational efficiency for property managers.
