LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels (LXR) has selected hospitality security leaders VingCard and Elsafe, both part of the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Group, as the sole preferred providers of electronic door locks and in-room safes for its hotels and resorts.

Whether securing new construction developments or retrofitting existing properties, the partnership calls for LXR to install electronic door locks from VingCard and UL-listed in-room safes from Elsafe for unsurpassed security, efficiency and reliability.

“When it comes to outfitting our dynamic selection of hotels and resorts with door locks and in-room safes, we consistently turn to VingCard and Elsafe based on their longstanding reputations for providing the ultimate in guestroom security, unmatched ease-of-use and a level of design suitable to our high-end hotels and resorts,” said Jay Schwartz, vice president of procurement for LXR. “Now, through this agreement, each of our properties will be equipped with the reliable locks and safes our hoteliers and guests expect.”

One solution preferred by LXR is Signature by VingCard, a design-centric electronic door lock featuring minimal door hardware and designers’ collection door handles. Signature was developed specifically to match any hotel environment while offering the same security and reliability that helped VingCard make a name for itself in the hospitality industry.

“Since its introduction in 2005, Signature by VingCard has become the electronic locking system of choice for hotels and resorts in North America, and we’re confident that LXR will be beyond satisfied with its unmatched design and functionality,” said Marc Freundlich, president and CEO of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality North America.

Another locking solution offered to LXR properties is Classic by VingCard. With more than 15 years of proven performance securing thousands of hotels worldwide, Classic offers highly reliable security features while providing unsurpassed ease of operation and maintenance. Electronic guestroom door locks from the Signature and Classic lines are compatible with magnetic strip and/or smartcard systems, which Freundlich says offers greater flexibility for hoteliers.

For its properties’ in-room safe needs, LXR selected Infinity Digital by Elsafe, a unique line of safes combining aesthetically-pleasing Scandinavian design with heavy-gauge construction to provide the ultimate in security. In fact, Infinity was the first line of in-room safes in the world to pass the rigorous UL break-in test (1037 listing).

“Infinity’s prestigious UL-listing helped reassure that Elsafe is the right safe provider for LXR hotels,” Schwartz said.

Infinity’s modular design and reprogrammable electronics allow hoteliers to easily customize safe features or upgrade to new technology by simply replacing the safe’s front panel.

“Infinity Digital was developed based on feedback from thousands of properties worldwide showing that guests feel most secure with digital safe simplicity that allows them to choose their own personal four- or six-digit access code,” Freundlich said. “Through our new partnership with LXR, we look forward to offering this convenience to its properties’ upscale clientele.” 

LXR hotels and resorts already equipped with locks and safes from VingCard and Elsafe include, among others, The London West Hollywood (West Hollywood, Calif.), Fort Lauderdale Grande Hotel & Yacht Club (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and Condado Plaza Hotel & Casino (San Juan, Puerto Rico).
