“We use and trust ABUS cylinders for their high security specification and long patent protection,” says James Jardine from LKM Security Systems. “The key system at the Cavern Club were beginning to show signs of wear and tear and had been changed and refurbished on an ad hoc basis over the years. We fitted escutcheons where necessary and built six differs into the system to increase the scheme’s safety.”
The Cavern Club opened in 1957 in Liverpool as a jazz club, later becoming a centre of the rock and roll scene in Liverpool in the early 1960s. The club became closely associated with Merseybeat and regularly played host to the Beatles in their early years. Today the Cavern is a thriving live music destination and one of Liverpool’s top tourist attractions. It encompasses three venues – the Cavern Club, Cavern Live Lounge and the Cavern Pub. With up to 800,000 visitors a year and many different key holders the security and access control of offices and backstage areas are of vital importance. The ABUS Vitesse cylinders will provide years of trouble-free secure operation, even in high traffic parts of the Cavern.
