Residential complexes

Residential complexes | Residential properties | Student residences

Shared living spaces are all the rage in modern residential living: a rooftop swimming pool or meditation space in the basement. In a locking system with electronic component products that are used for shared spaces and mechanical component products that are used in doors to property. Consequently, residents benefit from increased convenience and operators spend less time on managing the master key system. EVVA knows how.

Your requirements:


  • Event log Because your tenants want to know who accessed which facility at which time if an expensive mountain bike goes missing or if they would like to set up access schedules to gyms or swimming pool facilities
  • One system for all purposes Because your tenants would like to unlock their properties, bike sheds and swimming pool facilities using only one type of medium (e.g. combi key)
  • Key copying protection Because access authorisations and reordering keys must follow specific, secure processes

Despite the village's proximity to the international airport it has maintained its rural character. The almost 6,000 strong population benefits from an excellent infrastructure, countless sports and leisure-time activities, an active village and club community as well as numerous picturesque hiking and cycling routes.

The Neufeld quarter defines an independent part of town within the municipality of Oberglatt. The residential development features a total of 188 residential units and 1,200 EVVA ICS cylinders which were installed by our EVVA Rotkreuz team. The entire residential development in Neufeld-Oberglatt has been built to meet Minergie standards and provides convenient ventilation throughout all residential units. One boarded basement partition is available per residential unit. The underground garage provides space for 191 cars. Individual layouts, generous residential and outdoor areas as well as different residential unit types make sure everyone can find a suitable property featuring the ICS locking system within the right budget. The ICS system is ideal for locking systems with a host of different user groups. In developments, such as Skypark Oberglatt, where operators are familiar with users, ICS scores high marks: as reversible keys their specially developed tips make ICS keys particularly easy to insert. The key thickness of 3 mm and the high-quality nickel silver alloy make the key very durable and resistant to wear. Its concealed, inner recesses which make an unauthorised duplication of keys virtually impossible are unique. The time-tested curve system, the durable length profile and distinctive track system with internal recesses provide maximum levels of protection. Scanning takes place on five tracks through thirteen spring-loaded locking sliders and the durable length profile. ICS cylinders are produced in modular design (SYMO) to provide more than just flexibility. They can consequently be adapted to the relevant door requirements directly on site.

Windisch mill

Size:> 500 units
Facility type: Residential complex
Country: Switzerland

A new, lively and urban quarter with a host of residential and office spaces is being developed in several stages on the premises of the former, traditional silk mill. Architects were looking for an individual and special locking system. They opted for ICS, perfectly geared towards the requirements to organisation, security and convenience.

The area merges unconventional residential loft apartments within historic factory walls with modern residential buildings, ample space for service providers, retail units and workshops. Architects are also planning on integrating restaurants as well as leisure time and cultural offers. It won't be long until crowds of people meet in an appealing atmospheric mix of old and new buildings. Strict design regulations dictate the quality, use and design of the future development as well as its use. As this was such a unique project, high standards were required by those responsible for the building's security. That's why a particularly wear-resistant, mechanical system was chosen: EVVA's ICS (Inner Code System), a system which excels thanks to its resistant length profile, time-tested curve system and concealed biting. Around 700 mechanical lock cylinders were installed throughout the premises of the former silk mill to guarantee maximum levels of building security. This ensures that producing unauthorised duplicate keys is virtually impossible. Particularly different user groups require intelligent locking charts. As a result of the company's history spanning almost a century, EVVA was able to fall back on plenty of experience to benefit this project. All this was supplemented by the ICS keys' unique security characteristics in combination with the innovative ICS lock cylinder technologies. In any case, the silk mill in Windisch is ready for any future extensions thanks to ICS. EVVA security technology has enabled operators to provide an optimal security system for the premises while EVVA was once more able to prove its high capacity standards as a single-source provider.
