Abloy Protec system
To meet recent Government legislation, Anglian Water’s security systems have been upgraded with high security padlocks and cylinders for 5,665 waste water sites.
After upgrading their clean water sites using the Abloy Protec system, Anglian has continued to use the same high security padlocks and cylinders as part of a masterkey system across their waste water estate.
The new system will comply with The Security and Emergency Measures Direction (SEMD), which highlights a legal framework that water companies in England and Wales must follow in order to plan and prepare for water and sewerage incidents and to improve the resilience of their sites.
Once completed, the waste water system will incorporate over 18,000 padlocks and 8,000 cylinders, allowing employees tiered access to different areas of the Anglian estate, which includes; The Humber, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
Rudi Balla, Market Development Manager for Abloy UK, said, ’The natural challenge in providing security for water sites is key management, maintaining access for engineers, while ensuring that lost keys do not cause a security breach.
’Installing a patent protected masterkey system across the whole estate cuts down the number of keys carried by individual employees or contractors, adding convenience without compromising on security.
’Supplying our Protec system to Anglian water re-enforces Abloy’s commitment to providing high quality security solutions to the water sector’.

- exceeds international standards for high security including UL 437 and EN 1303
