Finalists Announced for ADSA Sponsored Award

The shortlist for the Product Design and Innovation Electronic Award (Electronic), sponsored by the Automatic Door Suppliers Association, as part of the AI Specification Awards 2024 has been announced.

Four companies will go head-to-head for the coveted prize which will be revealed at a gala lunch, in Southwark Cathedral, next month (April).

It is only the second time that electronic solutions have had their own category in the biennial awards – reflecting levels of innovation within the industry and the demand for blended solutions. It attracted significant entries, showcasing solutions which combine traditional architectural ironmongery with electronic/technological components and interfaces.

Finalists include:
  • Access2: TeDee

  • UAP Limited: IONIC

  • ASSA ABLOY: Openings Studio

  • Surelock McGill: Trent – mechanical and electronic access control heavy-duty lockable handle

The 41st AI Spec Awards will take place on 18th April. A total of 32 architectural ironmongery projects and products have been shortlisted across eight categories. Organised by The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), they are staged to identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery in the construction industry.

Said ADSA Managing Director Ken Price:
“It’s a real honour to sponsor this award for the second time. Innovation is often sparked by a need to address a specific issue or improve effectiveness or efficiency. Use of new technologies within product development can enhance safety, security, accessibility, result in energy savings and support sustainability.  This award is a celebration of those efforts which lead to a significant step change.”
The first recipient of the award was Strand Technologies which won in 2022 with Virtual Engineer, a technology solution for the control and diagnostics of automatic doors, gates and barriers.
