TESA ENTR® awarded in Portugal Construction Innovation Awards 2016


ASSA ABLOY Iberia has received two prizes recognizing the innovation that TESA ENTR® and Yale Shine Smart Door Locks bring to the industry.

This third edition of the Awards "Innovation in Construction" event brought together over 200 professionals and awarded 22 prizes to national innovative projects in the construction area. The initiative promotes the distinction of best practices and the best strategies, and recognizes the efforts of companies in the production and distribution of the most innovative solutions in the categories of "Business", "Materials and products" and "Equipment". 

The awards are decided by an independent panel of recognized individuals in the area and promoted by Anteprojectos magazine, Construir newspaper and Projectista procurement portal, all of them references in their sectors and key instruments to get to Architects, Projects and Construction professionals. 

One of the awards was given to ENTR® from TESA recognizing the innovation in the way we are now able to interact with doors and the simplicity to convert a residential door into a smart secured one. 

Another innovation award was given to the shine lock from Yale, recognizing the flexibility that the clip fixing technique brings. 

This technology can be applied to an existing glass door without requiring glass substitution as it doesn't need any holes, and thus making virtually every glass door eligible to evolve from mechanical security to advanced electronic access control functionalities.   

“The importance of these awards relies not only in the awards themselves and being proud of the innovation recognition we get from the market, but even more on how they help to leverage awareness of our excellent Smart Door Lock products in industries key to our business to further increase our market presence” says João do Carmo, ASSA ABLOY Portugal Country Manager.
