VingCard Elsafe Unveils Top-Opening Drawer Safe Line, Zenith by Elsafe

Designed for guest convenience, attractive new safes are big enough for
notebook computers and can be installed in desks.


Dallas – June 13, 2012 – VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, announces the launch of a new drawer safe, Zenith by Elsafe, a product innovation designed to meet the security and convenience needs of today’s hotel guests. Featuring top-opening construction and capacity for most standard-sized notebook computers, Zenith by Elsafe represents the next generation of hotel security technology.

Stylish enough for even the most discerning design-driven properties, Zenith by Elsafe drawer safes are conceptualized with guest accessibility in mind. Traditional hotel safes are designed to be installed in closets or armoires, areas that are typically located out of easy reach of the guest. Furthermore, traditional safes are front-opening, offering a limited view of the inside of the safe. The top-opening Zenith by Elsafe addresses both problems. The drawer safe can be installed in more desirable areas of the guestroom, such as desks, dressers or bedside tables.

“Many hoteliers tell us that their guests want a safe that is available to them where they use their things, and that often means at the desk or next to the bed,” says Johan Sigurdson, Global Product Manager Safes, VingCard Elsafe. “We listened, and we've created the new Zenith line of drawer safes to enable hotels to fit safes into just about any area of the room, making it easier for guests to find the safe and thus more prone to use it.

Besides the obvious benefits of convenience and flexibility, this will reduce instances of lost or stolen guest property, leading to higher overall guest satisfaction."

Thanks to its top-opening design, Zenith by Elsafe—which features an opening nearly twice as large as traditional guestroom safes—is able to offer guests an easy and complete view of the safe’s interior, reducing the chance of leaving valuables behind. Zenith by Elsafe has another key convenience feature: an interior power socket for charging electronics. The safe is large enough to store and charge notebook computers of up to 15 inches in diameter.

While the space-saving advantages of Zenith by Elsafe are obvious, the product is intended not only for guestrooms with space constraints. Zenith by Elsafe can be customized with floor-mounted pedestals, leveraging the top-opening design for a modern, sleek safe that can be placed anywhere in the guestroom.

VingCard Elsafe is the world leader in developing locking systems and electronic in-room safes for the hospitality industry, offering user-friendly security systems that meet the unique operational needs of hotels and resorts. For more information, please visit www.vingcardelsafe.com.
