Sub-assembly proves popular for UNION’S keyULTRA™


Since the launch of UNION’s self-assembly version of its keyULTRA™ masterkey system, the UNION dealer network has been providing an enhanced service and delivery to customers.

Only requiring pinning to complete the system, this format provides significant timesaving benefits to UNION customers, and makes the masterkey system easy to use and more accessible. 

UNION’s keyULTRA™ master key system possesses one of the longest patents on the market, lasting until 2028. This patent protects both the key and cylinder assembly, with DuraPIN™ technology. 

The product also boasts enhanced features including the highest key related security, as per BS EN 1303:2005, along with resistance to bumping, drilling, picking and plug extraction. KeyULTRA™ is also approved for use on 60-minute fire doors in accordance with BS EN 1634-1. 

KeyULTRA™ is made to be strong and durable, utilising self-lubricating materials, and has been successfully tested to over half a million cycles, guaranteeing performance.  The system employs a strong durable key, with an easy to grip, oversized key bow to facilitate product use. 

Brett Adderley, Product Manager for UNION, said: “The entire UNION keyULTRA™ range is available to registered dealers, in sub-assembled format, and has proven a very popular cost and timesaving solution. Sub-assembled products only require pinning to complete, making them very easy to assemble, producing significant cost and timesaving benefits. 

“Product training, provided at the ASSA ABLOY Academy, will enable dealers to produce additional keys and all cylinder variants to individual requirements at their own premises, allowing them to better service their customers’ needs.” 

UNION offers assistance in the design of master key systems to suit end user requirements. All master key calculations are supplied free of charge and are provided as straight-forward, easy to use instructions, enabling dealers to easily manufacture product.
