UNION secures University of Essex’s new student accommodation with keyPRIME

UNION’s keyPRIMETM reversible key cylinder platform has been installed at the University of Essex’s new student accommodation, providing assured key control for the university and security for undergraduates.

The new accommodation, named The Copse, consists of 643 new single ensuite rooms and studios across two accommodation blocks: The Oaks and The Poplars.

UNION worked with main contractor Bouygues to identify the best platform to help meet the university’s needs for these two buildings. After careful consideration, Bouygues selected UNION keyPRIMETM, due to the brand’s extensive experience in master keying, how cost-effective the solution was, and the longevity of the product’s patent.

Offering a patented lifetime to 2036 – one of the longest available on the market – UNION keyPRIMETM keys and cylinders can only be ordered, cut or assembled by authorised partners.

The product has a solid 3mm thick key, and is offered as a master key, keyed alike or keyed to differ, in euro, single, double, or key and turn cylinders. Certified to the toughest requirements of BS EN 1303:2015, the platform offers anti-pick, anti-drill, anti-bump  and anti-pull protection as standard.

Regional Sales Manager Rob Moore said:
“UNION keyPRIMETM is ideal for the education sector, as it can be keyed for just one or multiple doors, and cylinder upgrades or replacements are easy to install.
“We are delighted that UNION keyPRIMETM has been selected for the University of Essex’s new student accommodation, continuing our extensive work in the education market.
“Delivering greater value for money than more costly master key solutions, UNION keyPRIMETM features symmetrical faces and no sharp edges so the key works easily at all times, no matter which way it is inserted.
“While facing some tough competition from other brands, our UNION keyPRIMETM platform came out on top due to its performance capabilities, the overall cost and UNION’s established heritage and reputation in this field, covering more than 100 years’ experience in master keying. We are thrilled that the platform has been chosen for this prestigious institute.”
