The M+ is Hong Kong’s newest museum and Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture. Housing 33 galleries and featuring around 1,500 works during its grand opening, M+ is matchless in its collection of visual art, design and architecture and moving images from Hong Kong, Greater China, Asia and the world. The M+ building itself is a sight to behold, with an area of 65,000 square metres enclosed in a unique terracotta tile-clad tower at the Victoria Harbour waterfront. The striking architectural form of the M+ is highlighted by a dynamic LED media system on its façade. Thus, upon its grand opening, the M+ has immediately become an iconic landmark of Hong Kong’s skyline.
Much like its building’s design and pioneering visual art culture, the M+ required a mechanical locking system bold enough to accommodate its multiple galleries through a clearly structured master key system. An additional challenge was the demand of the M+ to have cylinders which could be recoded. A one-time recoding option was required, whereby the cylinders built into the doors were to be unlocked by key “A” during the construction phase, and subsequently re-coded to be only accessed by key “B” by the building’s owners after construction was completed.
EVVA was able to meet the demands of M+ with its EPS system. In total, over 700 EPS cylinders with the construction keying function were supplied by Jardine Engineering Corporation – one of EVVA’s local long-standing Hong Kong partners. With its successful grand opening, the M+ can rely on a highly secure mechanical locking system provided by EVVA for many years to come.
