Historical building is secured by EVVA

News | 04. January 2022.
The Episcopate is a historic landmark in the picturesque Slovak town of Nitra. However, the 400-year-old Baroque complex urgently needed a modern access system for its various areas. The combination of our EPS pin tumbler system and our Xesar electronic access system was able to meet all requirements and ensure a strong and user-friendly solution.

"We already know each other very well because of our regional proximity; the EVVA branch is also located in Nitra. EVVA was therefore commissioned to design and implement the access system," explains Mr Šidlo, vice rector of the seminary in Nitra. But it wasn't just the proximity that made the difference: the "one key for everything" principle was fulfilled very well by the clearly structured master key system. Costs are saved on the one hand and, on the other hand, the highest level of security is guaranteed.

Best pin system

A historical feature is the impressive entrance gate with a height of over four meters and a weight of 300 kg. The access system therefore had to harmonise visually, comply with the requirements for the preservation of historical monuments and, last but not least, meet the required security regulations. According to Mr. Šidlo, "Not every cylinders fits here." Our modular EPS cylinders were able to solve this challenge to the complete satisfaction of all. High levels of user convenience and the system's durability make this the "best pin system".

The Xesar combination is the solution

Mechanical master key systems are widely used, but nowadays they do not meet all the requirements of a modern locking system. The optimal EVVA combination of electronics and mechanics offers the desired security and control. The quick and easy Xesar conversion is possible for every door without great expenditure. 10 cylinders, 10 wall readers and around 80 escutcheons and 600 identification media are in use by God's representative in Nitra. The attractive payment model with Xesar Key Credits is one of the most cost-saving solutions currently available on the market.

Owners, management, guests, employees and maintenance staff all benefit from the simple and versatile access solution at the bishop's seat in Nitra. The system can also be extended at any time. "Xesar and EPS are the best solution for everyone here," the delighted customer summarises succinctly.
