Chubb Locks Custodial Services (CLCS), Intelligent Locking Systems (ILS) and Pickersgill-Kaye (Kaye) have formed as the High Security & Safety group, a new division of Assa Abloy Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, to provide a stronger, more comprehensive offering to different sectors.
Each brand enjoys its own areas of expertise, with CLCS a supplier of high-security locks to custodial, secure healthcare, government and secure education environments. ILS is a manufacturer of high security locks for safes and vaults, providing solutions to the banking, construction, leisure and jewellery sector.

The CLCS, ILS and Kaye divisions will continue as distinct brands within the High Security & Safety Group, which will sit alongside Assa Abloy Opening Solutions UK & Ireland’s other specialist business units. These include the Door Group, Door Hardware & Access Control Group and the Project Specification Group.
