The SBID International Design Awards winners for 2021 were revealed at the Nobu Hotel Portman Square in London on Friday 22 October. Finfort is pleased to announce that it 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.
Considered one of the most prestigious accolades in the interior design industry, success in the GOLD-standard Awards programme which amassed over 3,000 entries from 85 countries demonstrates the highest level of design excellence across the commercial and residential sectors.
‘Winning a prestigious SBID award validates the long design journey from a concept of a recessed automatic deadbolt through to creating the FinBolt Triple Door Lock set – a unique, convenient, safer door locking solution that honours the British front door aesthetic.’ Timothy Finn, Finfort Co-Founder.
Evaluated by industry-leading experts and judged by the design-conscious public in the online Public Vote, winning an SBID International Design Award is an approval of FinBolt's revolutionary design, functionality and security.
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.
The FinBolt lock is a major innovation in door security. FinBolt makes it possible to secure a door at multiple points with individual locks operating independently. They 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 thumb turn 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.
SecurityTo compliment the elegant design, Finfort has partnered with Avocet ABS who supply its high-security 3 star kitemarked cylinders with registered keys that cannot be copied without permission and only 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. The thumbturn design was so unique and fitted with our ethos of bringing security and style together.’ Hilary Duggan, Finfort Co-founder.
Steve Ross, Commercial Director for Avocet ABS commented, “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.”
