Access2 clinched the ADSA Sponsored Product Design and Innovation Award (Electronic) at the AI Specification Awards 2024 on 18 April 2024.

The Newcastle-upon-Tyne company, which specialises in the supply of master keyed cylinder locks, scooped the prestigious award for TeDee – a keyless home locking system which can be used remotely via a smartphone or watch.

ADSA managing director Ken Price attended the ceremony at Southwark Cathedral and presented the award to Access2 MD Neil Rule.

Judges considered TeDee a “highly innovative product combining functionality, aesthetics and security with the convenience of modern technology” and deemed it a “most impressive product”

This was 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. The category attracted significant entries, showcasing solutions which combine traditional architectural ironmongery with electronic/technological components and interfaces.

Other finalists included: UAP Limited for IONIC, ASSA ABLOY for Openings Studio and Surelock McGill: Trent for its mechanical and electronic access control heavy duty lockable handle.

Organised by The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the awards are staged to identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery in the construction industry.

Said ADSA Managing Director Ken Price:
“It was a wonderful event hosted in a magnificent venue – a place where we could appreciate the historic architecture and marvel at the skills that must have gone into building such a place. 
“Our warmest congratulations go to the team at Access2 which has demonstrated ingenuity and innovation by using emerging technologies to improve security and provide home owners with convenience and peace of mind.”
