Meets Strict Standards of Performance for Access Control System Units
NEW HAVEN, CT, October 29, 2010 - SARGENT Manufacturing Company (www.sargentlock.com), a market leader in locksets, cylinders, door closers, and related products, and an ASSA ABLOY Group company, announces that its Harmony Series Integrated Wiegand Locks have received UL 294 certification. As the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard of safety and performance for Access Control System units, UL 294 certification ensures that the Harmony Series products are suitable for all environments and will perform in the most adverse conditions.

The series is available with SARGENT designer levers, allowing it to blend seamlessly into nearly any environment.
