K2 Commercial Hardware (K2) introduces its first SmartKey-enabled products servicing the commercial builder market. In three simple steps that take a matter of seconds, users have the flexibility to re-key their own locks quickly and easily without the need to remove the lock from the door. The hardware is available in K2’s line of Deadbolts, Interconnect Levers and Key Control Deadbolts.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer SmartKey re-key technology to the commercial market,” says Adam Matusz, product manager, K2. “This unique technology is one of Black & Decker’s most successful innovations in company history and provides improved security and a level of convenience never before experienced by end-users. From a business perspective, it truly differentiates us in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace in which we are constantly striving to provide even greater value to the partnerships we forge with our clients.”
K2’s SmartKey-enabled products feature a patented side-locking bar technology, central to the device’s ability to be rapidly re-keyed. This locking system allows consumers the flexibility to quickly match all the entry points to one key, offering instant one-key convenience. By using the SmartKey Learn Tool and the existing functioning key, users can safely match or change out keys without special training or outside contractors, yet are secure against any unauthorized key changing.
The K2 SmartKey-enabled deadbolt features ANSI Grade 2 certification and passes the stringent lock picking standard, UL 437, par. 11.6. This innovation eliminates the typical sheer line, pins and tumbler mechanisms in its design, removing the most vulnerable points within lock design. The K2 SmartKey deadbolts also feature improved drill resistance and integrated BumpGuard Protection, offering an affordable solution to the growing concern of lock-bumping intrusions.
