French art museum protected by ASSA ABLOY

France’s Musée Maurice Denis, an art museum set inside a listed 17th-century monument, has received ASSA ABLOY CLIQ® access control technology for a security solution.

The Musée Maurice Denis, situated in St.-Germain-en-Laye, houses France’s largest collection of ‘Nabi’ art – Symbolist works dating to the Post-Impressionist period.

Drawing on deep experience in the heritage sector, CLIQ® delivered quality security, with no disruption to the building’s aesthetic.

Installation was easy and wire-free, because programmable CLIQ® locks are powered by standard batteries inside every key.

Roughly 70 robust, hard-wearing CLIQ® cylinders and padlocks now secure doors and windows inside and outside the main museum building, with waterproof padlocks also protecting boxes housing CCTV cameras on the building’s exterior.

All cylinders and padlocks provide proven resistance against unauthorised intrusion and other threats, rigorously tested at sensitive real-world locations, such as museums, libraries and other public buildings across the continent.

Every employee is given access to relevant areas via a single CLIQ® key, which security administrators program with only the appropriate access permissions.

Contractors are also admitted via a programmable (and easily re-programmable) CLIQ® key deposited inside a Traka key-management box protected with a PIN code.

Raphaël Scapecchi, logistics, safety and security officer at Musée Maurice Denis, commented: “CLIQ® enabled us to control access to all our openings, windows and doors, with just a single key.

“With CLIQ®, if a key is lost, its access rights are simply removed, instantly, and it no longer opens any doors. There is no wasting time and money replacing locks or cylinders.

“The result? Based on three years of successful operation, CLIQ® is “a huge time and money saving.”
