nobilia – security is cooked to perfection
Operating throughout Europe, nobilia-Werke J. Stickling GmbH & Co. KG is a market leader and Europe’s largest designer and manufacturer of built-in kitchens. The company employs around 3,600 employees and produces 33,300 kitchen cabinets per day. In 2018, nobilia produced over 1.69 million kitchen countertops.
Security in its 250,000 m² of production sites and in the administrative office was challenging. An overview of the locking system and visibility of the keys in use were missing. The company was looking for a digital locking system that could be operated with as little maintenance and servicing requirements as possible. To save costs, it was important to find a system where cylinders could be easily installed and fitted to the existing lock cases without modifications to the door or frames.
The company chose iLOQ S10 because they knew of no other system that could fulfill all their security and administrative requirements. The management of the keys and authorization of access rights is structured and clear. Once installed and programmed, and with no batteries to change, the cylinders have been entirely maintenance-free.
“We are pleased to have found a solution that, taking into account our internal requirements in relation to corporate security and building technology, can be used in both new buildings, and also easily as a retrofit for existing buildings. The battery-free iLOQ S10 digital locking system is a future-oriented, uniform and secure locking system, which makes administration easier for us and, above all, providess complete documentation,” states Stefan Löber, Head of Plant Security.
iLOQ S10 has been installed in new buildings (in the administration offices and production halls) and has successively replaced the locks in the existing manufacturing plant and in older buildings. To date, 253 iLOQ S10 cylinders have been installed and 229 digital keys are in operation.
