The MX equipment option offers maximum flexibility. The stainless steel elements in the cylinder core provide iron clad security as standard.



This modular system variant allows you to respond quickly, flexibly and safely to the conditions on site, which saves time and avoids unnecessary journeys. MX is available as an option for the Bravus reversible key system and the latest conventional system, Vitess.

The drill protection inlay made of high-strength stainless steel and integrated inside the cylinder guarantees a higher level of drill protection as standard as well as additional withdrawal protection. The Bravus MX Intellitec system and the Vitess MX Intop system come with a high level of technical copy protection and patent protection.
