Numerous enquiries

Winkhaus reported a ‘hugely successful’ FIT Show, generating numerous serious enquiries for its high-quality locking systems, including the latest AV3-E autoLock range suitable for all market sectors.

Mike Rushen, Winkhaus UK sales director, said: “We were impressed with the professionalism of visitors to the stand and their relevance to our industry as well as the sectors – trade, retail, fire and security markets – in which we operate. Our products cover various door types in a multi sector marketplace, and the show’s visitors reflected those key audiences and our markets.”

The company introduced its new FD30/FD60 fire and security composite and timber doorset solutions that have passed BS EN1634 Fire Resistance and Smoke Control, and PAS24 security testing.

Late-night Tuesday was a highlight with the ‘Tap and Tonic’ party creating one of the busiest stands at the show. Visitors enjoyed gin and tonics, German craft beers, music and the prize draw.

First prize went to Leigh Umney of Bedford Bi-Folds and second prize to Pierre Mifsud of Solidor, with both winning Virgin Experience Day Vouchers.

Stand visitors expressed interest in Winkhaus’s newest addition to its autoLock collection: the AV3-E Heritage Plus, which combines a modern multi-point locking system with enhanced visual style. Key features include its heritage eye-level cylinder position and a new centre latch.
