System V14 - All-rounder with a very high protection against key copying

The system V14 is a highly-efficient all-rounder for small as well as very large locking systems and offers a very good price performance ratio for its users.


The patented profile V14 guarantees a high protection against illegal key copies as well as against manipulation of the cylinder (e.g. picking). Due to the bent shape the key gets a remarkably higher stability.

In case of very high security demands according to insurance standards the V14 cylinders can be delivered with VdS-approved equipment class B/VdS ***.

The 3 security levels of V14 provide a high flexibility regarding the realization of locking systems. With the possibility of later extension of locking systems V14 is a system with a guaranteed future. Furthermore, the integration of electronic components in mechanic locking systems is possible.

Combi Cap and Skuni Cap

The coded profile rib with blocking ball

The special coded profile rib provides the system V14 with a very high protection against key copying. In case of a wrong coded or missing profile rib the blocking ball prevents the opening of the cylinder.

Combination with electronics

Quite simple combination with electronic systems due to the new developed Combi Cap or the Skuni Cap. The key can be ordered ex works as mechanical-electronically combined key. For a later retrofitting of the electronic elements the Combi Cap can easily be put on the key. Moreover, external systems like alarm systems or time registration and pay terminals can be served from a hybrid key.
