New ASSA ABLOY Security Door Closer named Productof the Year 2023 in Germany

May 26, 2023

To win in S+B Schloss- und Beschlagmarkt’s security technology and access control category, products must convince a jury of experts by combining innovation, utility, value, design and digitalisation potential. The 2023 award follows similar success last year for the ePED® Panic Touch Bar.

“I am particularly pleased that the expert jury has awarded one of our product innovations 1st place for the second time in a row,” says Stefan Fischbach, Chairman of the Management Board of ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH and SVP & Head of Central Europe.

“This shows me that we as a manufacturer are right on target with the development of highly functional and at the same time aesthetically pleasing locking systems and technologies that offer our customers the greatest possible flexibility while also being convenient to use.”

The Product of the Year 2023 award was presented to ASSA ABLOY CEO Nico Delvaux and Stefan Fischbach during April’s BAU 2023 in Munich – World’s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials, Systems.

Innovative solution for fire and escape doors, new or retrofit
The Cam-Motion® Security Door Closer with integrated latch bolt, escape door strike and mechanical door coordinator easily equips doors with an emergency exit lock, without any need to wire the door leaf.

To retrofit an existing door, drill holes for a door closer which meets EN 1154 (supplement 1:2003-11) standard are reused. Without drilling, milling, filing or grinding, the door leaf itself remains physically unchanged, which preserves door integrity, fire certification and aesthetics.

All door closers with ASSA ABLOY’s patented Cam-Motion technology open with less effort and close reliably behind everyone who passes through them. Because an installer can set separate latch and closing speeds, high closing force works alongside easy opening which helps to keep the building barrier-free.
