FSB owner of new company Digital Access Control GmbH

Franz Schneider Brakel GmbH + Co KG has expanded its digital expertise by setting up new company Digital Access Control GmbH (abbreviated to DAC GmbH). The move sees the FSB brand positioning itself as a technological pioneer in the marketplace. The new company’s remit involves developing and distributing software solutions and platforms for digital access control.

Setting up the new company is the latest move in a tradition upheld by FSB for almost 140 years now of not simply keeping pace with developments but of actually advancing them with innovative products and system solutions of its own. “We are taking a mighty step into the digital future and the networking of building access points with the new business”, DAC GmbH Managing Director Andreas Steinkamp declares.

FSB took out a stake in start-up company 1aim GmbH in 2018. By taking it over and setting up DAC GmbH, FSB has strengthened its position in international competition and paved the way for enduring successes in the digital sphere. New digital solutions and systems will now be developed for marketing and distribution by FSB.

Electronically controlled access is the first step towards smart buildings in which a multitude of different functions can be organised digitally in today’s exciting new world. The solutions in the segment of electronic access control delivered by FSB, manufacturer of premium door and window fittings, are direct responses to altered user structures and requirements for modern building management. Security, flexibility and design are at the heart of its future-driven system solutions: ultra-modern technology made by FSB.

means of encrypted optical signals that can be generated by any
smartphone with a colour display – regardless of its maker or operating
The new L700 system will be reaching the market in the first quarter of
