Engineering innovation, beer and the popular ‘wurst’ are arguably three of the most well-known German trademarks, so it’s no surprise leading hardware specialist, Winkhaus, has chosen to showcase them at the FIT Show in April.
Exhibiting on stand 244, Winkhaus will be presenting its newest innovation, the autoLock AV3, alongside the company’s other market leading locking solutions, including the very successful AV2 Family, and the Grand Entrance collection of high security multipoint locks.
Featuring the new ‘daytime latch’ function, the AV3 multipoint autolock delivers added practicality for the end-user, by allowing the door to be opened from the outside without a key when activated. This is particularly useful when instant access is needed over a short period of time, for example when the homeowner is carrying in shopping bags.
“The AV3 further expands our already comprehensive range of locking solutions, enabling our clients to offer yet more choice to their own customers, and placing them in an advantageous position in today’s competitive environment,” said Winkhaus’ Justin Harris.
“We’re delighted to be presenting the new autolock at the FIT Show, together with our Grand Entrance suite of multipoint locks specifically designed to provide a high security solution for double doors.”
Suitable for any timber, aluminium and composite double door combination, the Winkhaus Grand Entrance range is a perfect fit for applications such as French door sets, or modern doors with an opening side panel.
“We invite fabricators and installers to our stand to see the new innovations for themselves, and discover how our complex portfolio of locking solutions can help them gain a strong competitive advantage across multiple markets,” said Justin. “Visitors to our stand will also be able to see our new AV2 animation that explains in a nutshell how our most popular lock works.”
Aside from product innovations, the Winkhaus stand will also boast a ‘German hospitality’ theme, with traditional German beer and sausages.
“Being at the show means more than a business opportunity for us. It is also a chance for the window and door industry to catch up, discuss trends and share experiences, so we’ll make sure the Winkhaus stand provides a relaxed atmosphere for customers and companies interested in learning more about our products and services to enjoy,” explained Justin.
There are even more reasons to drop by the Winkhaus stand at the Show, with visitors being given the chance to win one of three iPad Mini devices, just perfect to visualise the company’s brand new website – another exciting development to be revealed in April. Packed full of information on Winkhaus’ range of products and services, the new website will provide fabricators and installers with a comprehensive online resource.
“As always, there’s plenty to see and do at our stand, and we welcome everyone interested in first-rate locking solutions to stop by and talk to our team. We look forward to seeing you there!” concluded Justin.
