Makrolon® polycarbonate unlocks touch-controlled home security
When designing the Shepherd Lock, PassiveBolt needed to create a very small footprint while incorporating cutting-edge electronics. Additionally, the company worked to overcome the design constraints (e.g., size) while maintaining aesthetic and performance requirements, such as color, finish and impact resistance.
We have been working with this technology for years in various applications and have proven that Makrolon® polycarbonate is an extremely reliable material for IMSE––delivering the three critical elements of cosmetic durability, long-term functional performance and manufacturability.
