Innovations in security.

Finfort combines the architectural insights into how we use our homes and workplaces, with the technical expertise that drives innovation to produce practical well-engineering solutions to improve our daily lives. The patented Finbolt redefines the deadbolt lock to give superior security effortlessly.

Unique combination of skills.

Timothy Finn, architect and founder of Finfort, designed and prototyped the earlier models of the FinBolt. Timothy observed how many security measures are rendered useless because occupants forget or don’t bother using them. In designing and building the FinBolt,  Timothy set out to automate the deadbolting of doors in an aesthetically unobtrusive manner, thus giving fail safe, enhanced security with minimalist looks. 

Partnering Timothy in the evolution of the FinBolt is renowned engineer and designer Andrew Taylor.  Andrew's family has been connected with lock design for over 80 years and has been associated with such names as Yale, Ingersoll and Bramah. Andrew is a well renowned expert in the field of lock design. With many patented innovations to his name, Andrew consults on locks and other security devices for the insurance industry, crime prevention programmes and the Armed Forces.

Hilary Duggan, is co-founder of FinFort and drives the process of transforming the company’s creative ideas into a commercial reality.  She manages new product development, identifies new market opportunities, and develops relationships with customers, partners and suppliers. Prior to Finfort, Hilary was a Financial Services project manager leading large transformation projects for corporate and retail banks.

Finfort continues to design new products and to add to the Finbolt product range. Work has also begun on the FinSync, an ambitious project to develop an automatic deadbolt lock case designed to be used in conjunction with smart locks to enhance the mechanical security of smart lock offerings.
