IKON SK6 Vector profile rib


The Vector profile rib has a high-quality rib profile with six active spring-loaded pin locking elements. The profile of the key is arranged parallel to the key back. The respective profile features are arranged in pairs horizontally and at an angle to each other and form a feature pair. This special arrangement makes manual opening techniques considerably more difficult. A shape sensing pin in the locking cylinder controls the additional coding on the key. A further locking pin scans the rib on one side. Compared to conventional key profiles, it is characterized by a high degree of security against unlocking, scanning and re-locking.

This system is available for reorders only.

We offer various another systems as a new locking system.

Drilling protection:

Standard drilling protection class 1 (AB = 1):
  • pins made of hardened steel and at least one hard metal pin in the lock cylinder body
Increased drilling protection class 2 (AB = 2):
  • for increased safety requirements
  • reinforced drilling protection through additional carbide pins in the cylinder core and cylinder body
Increased drilling protection class 3 (AB = 3):
  • for high safety requirements

IKON Standard drilling protection

Core extraction protection:

To prevent core or lock cylinder extraction, the core extraction lock is available with extraction protection and integrated drilling protection AB=2 for profile cylinders (VdS approved). The core with core extraction protection is always supplied without surface treatment in nickel silver.

Core pull lock

Weather protection:

  • corrosion-protected design
  • cam and forend screw made of rustproof material
  • surface finish: matt chrome-plated

Emergency and danger function:

This function enables the locking cylinder to be blocked even if a key with locking authorisation is inserted on the opposite side.

Emergency and danger function


The profile cylinders which have a freely rotating cam are designated as freewheel cylinders.
The cam can be moved freely through 360° when no key is inserted.
When the key is inserted, the spring-loaded clutch engages in the cam. This then allows the cylinder to be closed in the conventional way with the key.

  • Usually only necessary for special panic or automatic locks. If in doubt, please check with the door manufacturer.
  • for multi-point locks with panic function: latch and bolt must be moved into the lock body when the door is closed with the handle. To ensure this, the cam must be able to turn freely.
  • in motor-driven locks and special escape door locks
  • restrictions possible in combination with other optional equipment

Key with coloured pin:

  • with plastic pin in different colours
  • simplifies the management of the keys
  • can indicate the assignment (e.g. locking authorizations) of the keys
