Allrounder with very high picking protection

The V14 locking system is a powerful all-rounder for both small and very large locking systems. The patent-protected contour profile of V14 guarantees a high level of protection against illegal key copies as well as against cylinder manipulation (e.g. picking). The angled shape also gives the key a significantly higher stability.

This system is available for reorders only.

For new systems we recommend the successor series ABUS Vitess.

Explanations on the optional extras:

Increased drilling protection BS01 (standard):

The drilling protection is achieved by using two additional hardened steel pins (the first and third pair of pins) in the cylinder core and body on each locking side (for double cylinders generally on both sides).This achieves the attack resistance class 2 according to EN 1303 and makes violent opening attempts more difficult.

Standard Drilling protection BS01

Cylinder finishes:

  • surfaces (cylinder body and core) galvanically treated (nickel, gold)
  • standard finish: nickel plated (silver coloured)
  • for individual design requirements
  • if desired, homogeneous appearance of door cylinder and fitting
Please note:
If a different cylinder finish, different from the standard finish, is ordered, extended production times may occur.
