Abloy wins Gaia Award for Sustainable Building Products

Security expert Abloy has received the Gaia Award for Sustainable Building Products at Big 5 in Dubai, winning the accolade for its range of low energy locks.

The Big 5 in Dubai is the largest construction event in the Middle East, connecting thousands of global suppliers and buyers of construction products. For their part, the Gaia Awards honour construction equipment and products that have truly integrated the concept of moving towards a more sustainable built environment.

Abloy’s low energy locks were showcased at the ASSA Abloy stand. Visitors voting at the exhibition chose them for the Gaia Award 2016 for Sustainable Building Products.

The 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 involved, the locks have a very wide voltage range and a number of usage possibilities.

Minna Sallinen, vice-president of product management at Abloy Oy, explained: “For Abloy, sustainability is a state of mind. It concerns all our processes – product development, choice of materials, the Health and Safety of our 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 they’re choosing a system that not only allows for swift and easy access and egress alongside an enhanced security provision, but also reduces the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a building.”
