iLOQ receives Secured by Design accreditation for its smart and secure products

Leading Finnish lock manufacturer iLOQ has joined Secured by Design, the official police security initiative, demonstrating their commitment to customer security.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative (owned by the UK Police Service) that works to reduce crime and improve the security of buildings to provide safe places to live, work, shop and visit.

SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification – provides a recognised standard for security products which deter and reduce crime. iLOQ as a company has now received accreditation from SBD, and its iLOQ S50 padlocks have been listed on the SBD portal.

iLOQ S50 padlocks are battery-free, cable-free and keyless. The power needed to confirm access rights and open locks comes from a smartphone running iLOQ’s app. With no batteries or external power source needed, reliable operation is ensured even during power cuts and harsh weather conditions. Real-time audit trails and access reports keep track of who has entered which areas and when, in order to help prevent misuse and unauthorised access of premises.

SBD membership recognises that products have not only been tested to relevant security standards, but are also fully certified by an independent third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

“This is another positive step forward for iLOQ in the UK and accreditation will certainly prove useful in helping us secure new business opportunities,” states Ulf Jonasson, Country Manager, iLOQ UK.

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, commented: “It has been a pleasure to bring iLOQ Oy on as a new member company to Secured by Design. They manufacture a huge range of security padlocks covering a wide selection for all areas of security, and I am looking forward to working alongside them and for many years to come.”
