Small Format Interchangeable Core (SFIC) Product Suite Offers Optimal Security

Medeco introduces Smart SFIC Solutions ideal for hospitals, schools and colleges

Salem, VA, July 15, 2010 --( Medeco High Security Locks has launched a suite of Small Format Interchangeable Core (SFIC) products designed to offer maximum value, competitive prices and superior key capabilities to fit a variety of security needs.

Three locks featured in the Smart SFIC Solutions™ product line, Nexgen XT, KeyMark x4 and Arrow Pointe, provide a range of security protection without any new hardware or repairs to existing locks.

“The Smart SFIC Solutions line of products was designed to give our customers and end-users options at various pricing and performance levels to fit their security needs. We believe that this level of selection will benefit most facility managers or security directors who are seeking the latest technology to protect their facilities but also diversity in selection, function and price points. Because they can fit into existing keyways, they are easy to install and don’t require additional hardware or wiring,” said Tom Kaika, President of Medeco.

Ideal for hospital, K-12 schools, and college and university facilities, this suite of SFIC products offers consistent quality and durability in various formats to fit a range of security needs. The Smart SFIC Solutions suite of products offers the following benefits:
