IKON eCLIQ is the clear choice for German hospital


An IKON eCLIQ locking system installed in a new building at University Hospital Frankfurt, Germany, has impressed facility management experts.


With its 32 clinics and 20 research institutes, University Hospital Frankfurt is the largest hospital in Hesse, Germany. More than 4,500 employees treat around 270,000 patients per year. Extensive new construction, expansion, and renovation in multi-phase construction stages have been in progress since 2001.


HOST GmbH Hospital Service and Technology and its staff of 150 employees are responsible for all technologies in the University Hospital. When it comes to security technology, HOST relies on the expertise of ASSA ABLOY. An IKON CLIQ locking system has already provided several years of faultless operation. Therefore, it was an obvious choice for HOST to install CLIQ in a recently completed new building.


Thanks to the high level of modularity and simple operation, the decision was quickly made to install an eCLIQ locking system. This system comprises 1,100 cylinders with an equal number of keys, and a specific web system. There are also five wall-mounted programmers, four of which are provided with anti-vandalism protection.

Facility management experts at HOST are so impressed with the new eCLIQ system that various buildings will be equipped with eCLIQ in the final construction stage of the large hospital project.
