The selected name, Allegion, conveys the close, collaborative and long-term relationships (allegiances) that the company builds with customers. It also refers to the diverse legion of experts company-wide and suggests the protection and strength that the brand's security solutions provide.
The Allegion logo features a lowercase "a" graphic, which is assembled with deliberate and precise arrangement of panels and openings reminiscent of architecture plans and blueprints. The vibrant orange symbol represents the new company's boundless energy and enduring commitment to creating a safer, more secure world.
Images (opinion after)
I like this quite a lot. Very corporate-identity-ish in all the right ways. Not flashy or overly conceptual, just a simple idea executed with bossiness.
Thanks to The Branding Source for the tip.
