New PAC8 System

pac8 product introduction  webv1

The PAC8 is a true one-door controller which provides a modern way of system installation and management via the dedicated PAC8™ App. This smart, compact controller boasts 90% of the features normally only associated with PC-based systems. The PAC8™ can be conveniently configured remotely on any mobile device via the App. Adding tokens has never been easier, simply scan the QR code laser-etched onto a token and create a new user. A single system can be expanded to upto eight PAC8™ controllers and can manage upto 250 unique users, all customisable with individual access privileges.

Once the system configuration has been completed by the installer, all programming information is sent from the mobile device to the controller via Bluetooth® connectivity. System settings are also stored in the Cloud allowing for an easy hand over from the installer’s App to the customer’s version. Changing user access privileges, creating new users or deleting redundant tokens is just as straightforward from that point on. System administrators can easily control and enforce secure access on their premises via the intuitive PAC8 App, effectively making complicated access management software a thing of the past.


The New £1 Coin


The New £1 coin is being introduced into circulation in March 2017.

  1. The Current £1 coin has been in circulation for over 30 years and this has led to the coin being easily counterfeited
  2. For a period of time the new and old £1 coin will both be in circulation this period will be from March 2017 to September 2017
  3. The only coin that will be produced in 2017 will be the new £1 coin
  4. Once the new £1 coin is introduced the old coin will begin to be withdrawn from circulation
  5. Following the six month co-circulation period, the current £1 coin will no longer be legal tender 

The introduction of the new £1 coin means current coin locks will become obsolete, so all leisure centres will need to replace existing coin operated locks

Abloy has a range of cost effective solutions that can be easily installed in your current lockers. With two styles of coin lock, the Classic and E-Lite have been designed to accept both the current and the new £1 coin.

Conversion kits for the Classic Coin Lock are available so you can easily upgrade your existing Abloy Locks.


Abloy also offer alternative locks that eliminate the need for coins and tokens. The Mifare RFIDand the Assa Coded 1.2 Digital Cabinet Lock are the future of locker locks, with sleek and stylish design they are ideal for leisure centres and are very popular in Spas.

With the introduction of the new £1 coin this is the right time to be upgrading your locks and whether you want to stay with traditional coin lock or if you want to move away from the coin operated locks we have the solution for you.
