Maximum flexibility with a mechanical locking system – EVVA makes this possible with the new Akura 44 mechanical access system

Development and planning was completed in just three years. This time was characterised by thousands of hours of tinkering, countless meetings, strict tests and checks, combined with the knowledge and skills of the EVVA team. This intense teamwork made it possible to develop a new standard for mechanical locking systems in such a short time. The innovative reversible key system is being produced on the new production line, which was built on the new EVVA site in Meidling, Vienna. 

Known for its many innovations and patents, EVVA presents Akura 44, another technical milestone in mechanical access systems. “The requirements placed on security, flexibility and investment security in modern residential buildings in particular are excellently met,” explains Alexander Scharinger, Product Manager of Akura 44 at EVVA. EVVA’s latest product stands out in all categories, particularly security. Thanks to the optional copying protection, the security level within a residential complex can be varied as required. 

Heavy keyrings are now a thing of the past for the residents of residential complexes. With Akura 44, it’s “one for all”. In addition to your own apartment, the entrance door, letter box, waste disposal room, garage and, if required, even the basement can be locked with just one key. And if desired, it is easy to combine the system with an EVVA electronic system, so that you know who is coming in and going out, where and at what time. With the combi key, you can lock electronic as well as mechanical access components. 

For more than 100 years, EVVA has been developing and manufacturing access systems of the highest quality and always striving to elaborate new ideas. Akura 44 also lives up to this aspiration. 

The short cylinder, which is specially adapted to the door types in residential buildings, does not compromise security. This is ensured by the integrated drilling protection and also the use of all locking pins. The classic cam lock can be easily integrated into the master key system in notice boards or letter boxes. Akura 44 padlocks provide additional and reliable protection for the basement, for example. 

The Akura 44 rim cylinder and outside cylinder also offers security, as supplementary security devices on apartment doors make unwanted access difficult for burglars. A key switch can easily be installed for electrically operated equipment, such as shade sails or roller shutters for ground floor premises. 

Akura 44 does not merely open up new dimensions; EVVA is also raising the production process to a new level in the newly constructed production building at the company headquarters in Meidling, Vienna. Production lines and processes have been developed in detail and tailored to Akura 44. Thanks to this optimisation, it is possible to produce over 6,000 cylinders per month in the beginning. However, the maximum production capacity is still a long way off and can still be expanded.

Stefan Ehrlich-Adám: “Never before have we been able to achieve this kind of initial production volume with just one product. Thanks to the expansion of our company premises, we now finally have the capacity to meet the demand accordingly.”

The new system’s fast, efficient and cost-optimised production is impressive. This also ensures an excellent price-performance ratio. 

Combined with the easy installation thanks to the completely new modular system that has fewer components for different lengths, Akura 44 is almost unbeatable, especially in finely calculated residential buildings.
