International design award

By Avocet.

The SBID International Design Awards winners for 2021 were revealed at the Nobu Hotel Portman Square in London on Friday October 22.

Finfort is among the impressive global design talent to have become a SBID product design award winner for its entry, FinBolt Triple Door Lock Set, in the Interior Fittings category.

The FinBolt Triple Door Set is the ultimate combination of ultra-security, convenience, and beautiful craftsmanship. It is an innovative set of three compact, sleek, recessed door locks equally suited to period or modern wooden doors.

The set includes two FinBolts, one at the top of the door and one at the bottom, simultaneously automatically deadbolting with a sophisticated soft closing action and a third insurance-compliant manual deadbolt which you choose when to use.

FinBolt makes it possible to secure a door at multiple points with individual locks operating independently, which automatically deadbolt every time the door is closed so doors are always secure, without turning a key.

It combines elegant design with award-winning engineering to secure doors automatically. The thumbturn mechanism ensures you can always get out fast when you need to so you can enjoy safer, automated door security that never compromises on style.

To complement the elegant design, Finfort partnered with Avocet ABS, which supplies its high-security 3-Star Kitemarked cylinders with registered keys, and can be copied by ABS-authorised key cutting centres.

“We are delighted to partner with ABS Avocet whose high-security cylinders complement our vision to deliver elegant, convenient, high-security door locking solutions,” Hilary Duggan, Finfort co-founder, said. “The thumbturn design was so unique and fitted with our ethos of bringing security and style together.”

Steve Ross, commercial director for Avocet ABS, said: “When we were approached by Finfort to work with them on their innovative FinBolt product, we were particularly excited by their vision of a security product that lends itself to the design conscious person. We are already looking at new bespoke finishes for our cylinder to work alongside Finfort’s future plans for an architecturally designed high security product offering.”
