The Big 5 in Dubai is the largest construction event in the Middle East, connecting thousands of global suppliers and buyers of construction products. The Gaia Awards honour construction equipment and products that have truly integrated the concept of moving towards a more sustainable built environment.
Abloy low energy locks were showcased at the Assa Abloy stand, and visitors voting at the exhibition chose them for the Gaia Award 2016 for sustainable construction products.
The range of Abloy low energy locks blend high security with eco-friendliness. They boast an ultra low current consumption due to energy only being used when the lock status is changed. In addition to the energy and cost reductions, the low energy locks have a very wide voltage range and a number of usage possibilities.
Minna Sallinen, VP Product Management at Abloy Oy, said: “For Abloy, sustainability is a state of mind. It concerns all our processes – product development, choice of materials, health and safety of employees and customers, distribution and service”.
Aaron Yule, Managing Director of Abloy UK, added: “It’s fantastic to see Abloy products gaining international acclaim, and in an arena where sustainability is paramount.
“By selecting our low energy locks, specifiers can ensure that they are choosing a system that not only allows for swift and easy access and egress alongside an enhanced security provision, but they are also reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a building too.”
