Design and Elegance are not an option anymore, they're a necessity

This is why our range of tailor-made products offers each access control technology available in the same compact style housings with different materials or colours available to match different surroundings and different types of buildings, both public and private.

Available in different colors

There are 2 different colours by default: silver for the aluminium housings and black for the ABS ones; with more colours available upon request for the aluminum housings like charcoal, blue, green, red or white. 

A whole range of options to meet your needs and décor style.
