Retail | Shopping centres

Many branches, changing tenants, cleaning and security staff, engineers plus customers that go in and out each day, merged with a dynamic layout including room for extensions to buildings should business be doing well. All this requires a dynamic security solution. Good that EVVA can combine mechanical locking component products and electronic locking component products within one locking system.

Your requirements:


  • Well organised security Because there are many tenants in your shopping centre who must be granted access to their own business as well as shared facilities
  • Versatility Because your facility also features panic doors and you would like to integrate them into a master key system
  • 100% copying protection Because you offer products with significant value and protection from burglaries is a top priority to you
  • Continuous logging of all entry and exit events Because you want to know who accessed which doors at which time

Republic Plaza – Singapore’s Sustainable and Eco-friendly Skyscraper

Product: EPS
Size: 1-100 units
Facility type: Wholesale and retail
Country: Singapore

EPS thumb turn cylinders in riser doors of retail shops

The client

The Republic Plaza is among Singapore’s highest skyscrapers. Towering over the Singapore skyline with its 66 storeys and its 280 metres height, Republic Plaza is a cutting-edge intelligent complex. The building is home to offices and retail shops; and is accessible to the public as it is directly linked to the Singaporean MRT via a pedestrian tunnel. Besides, being a state-of-the-art flagship development, Republic Plaza has won numerous Singaporean awards for its sustainability and eco-friendliness, among them multiple Green Mark Pearl Awards.

The challenge

For its retail shop levels, Republic Plaza required high security cylinders allowing for master keying possibilities and a local presence to support them, in case of enquiries and updates. The cylinders had to be supplied in a timely manner and installed in riser doors. Simultaneously, being a high-rise building renowned for its sustainability and eco-friendliness, Republic Plaza was looking to partner with a cylinder manufacturer who also prides itself on guaranteeing clean production.

The solution

Providing high security and comfort, while simultaneously enabling master keying possibilities for systems with clear structures, EVVA’s EPS cylinders and keys met the high demands. Thanks to the 35 installed EPS thumb turn cylinders, the riser doors in the retail shop levels of Republic Plaza now provide secure and comfortable access to its users. Besides providing the right blend of technical expertise and security, EVVA was the only viable option for Republic Plaza, as EVVA also prides itself in being a green, sustainable company with responsible business practices. EVVA has made significant contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and corporate social responsibility. Much like Republic Plaza, EVVA has been awarded with numerous Austrian awards for its clean production, among them multiple TRIGOS Awards.

OG Přerov

Product: EPS
Size: 101-500 units
Facility type: Wholesale and retail
Country: Czech Republic

Přerov shopping centre - conversion of the former Prior department store involving more than sixty shops. And one EPS (Extended Profile System) locking system.

A new, comprehensive shopping centre together with the corresponding infrastructure was created in Přerov, the location of the well-known, former Prior department store, with around 60 shops. Thanks to EVVA's experience with similar objects, we were awarded the tender for this order issued by the operators of OG Přerov in collaboration with a construction company. The gallery locking system includes locking functions for object managers and operators, a spare key for the fire service and individual user keys for business units. Some businesses have let units across several levels, others rely on just a single room that they can lock. It goes without saying that the decision to opt for EPS was also made taking into account security aspects. Tenants can lock their facilities using a system meeting the highest security category.

Country: Romania

The Kaufland store in Mangalia equipped with EVVA 3KSplus cylinders

Kaufland is a German hypermarket chain with over 1.200 stores in Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. Due to the high security, comfort and organisational requirements specified from the headquarters in Germany, EVVA Distributor in Romania "Dana Cor Impex Ltd" proposed the 3KSplus system, as already installed in many of Kaufland establishments throughout Europe.

The comfortable, robust and reversible 3KSplus key is perfectly suitable for an intensive use. Thanks to the high combination possibilities of this system, the organisation of the different spaces such as the logistic warehouse, the technical rooms, the shops rent to third-parties and the store itself is guaranteed without interlockings. Moreover, the springless operation of this system makes it resistant to the most demanding conditions and allows a long life of the locking system. The technical features of the key such as the high precision of the curve cuts also grants an extremely high anti-copying protection.

This object was realised with the locking system 3KSplus, which corresponds to today's 4KS locking system.

The facilities include one building for administration, a showroom and adjacent production as well as warehouse facilities.

The eight-fold magnetic key scans convinced just as much as the convenient operation and modular design of the cylinders. It's just impossible to duplicate an MCS key, not even with the most recent 3D printers.
