Avocet demonstrated the strength of its product portfolio at this month’s FIT Show in Telford (April 12th – 14th), with visitors to its stand seeing everything from tried, tested and trusted favourites like ABS and Pioneer Plus, to demonstrations of innovative new products like the AIM Forensic Alarm System and Avocet Intelligent Restrictor (AIR).
Rob I’Anson, sales director of Avocet’s window and door hardware division, said: “We had a great stand in a great location and the overriding feedback we got was that people sometimes forget just how strong our product offering is.”
Visitors to Avocet’s stand were given the opportunity to check out the Brighouse company’s entire Euro cylinder range, which features the 1 star kitemark Pioneer Plus, ABS 3 star Diamond grade lock, and the fabricators favourite, the ATK high security range, which has just been expanded to include a brand new thumbturn option.
Avocet was also showing its innovative side, which saw it introduce both the AIM Forensic Alarm System and the still to be launched Avocet Intelligent Restrictor (AIR).
AIR, which is designed to restrict doors in any open angle position with a simple lift of a handle, caught the attention of a number of manufacturers, in particular those offering French doors. While AIM, a security system that comprises a traditional door chain married to a high-tech housing that is home to a high-decibel alarm and a canister of traceable DNA forensic spray, was so popular, managing director, Clive Lloyd spent the vast majority of his time demonstrating it.
“On top of all that, we were also introduced our Ultra stainless steel range of bar handles, escutcheons, letterplates and door knockers for the first time, and like the two home security products they were extremely well received,” added Rob.
"It really was an extremely positive three days and we are confident that a significant numbers of the leads we gained at the show will be turned into business gains in the very near future.”
