UAP’s ultra-secure electronic lock is in the running to be named Best Technical Innovation at the GGP Installer Awards 2024.

Run by Glass and Glazing Products (GGP) magazine, the awards recognise the strengths of people, products, and businesses across the industry.

Launched under UAP’s Fullex-ai brand, the IONIC offers a range of innovative features which maximise security while improving the installer and end user experience.

A low wattage, wireless charging unit takes minutes to install, eliminating a major hurdle that has prevented electronic locks from becoming mainstream. Further easing installation, the IONIC’s setup mirrors the Fullex Autolock with identical routing specifications.

The IONIC enables access using a mobile phone, a fob, a push button on the inside, or a thumb turn. It can also be paired with an App which tracks those who have opened the door and allows time settings for different users.

Thanks to a technologically advanced design, security is enhanced in several ways. The lock can detect different forms of attack on the door and the fobs can’t be cloned. With no third-party server, all data is stored on the user’s phone and the lock’s brain in the door. For added protection, the IONIC App has dual security in case the phone is lost, and its software was developed within the EU making the lock fully GDPR compliant.

David Jennings, CEO of UAP said: “Being named a finalist in the GGP Installer Awards is testament to the IONIC’s unique features and the extensive research and innovation which has shaped its design. With multiple patents, the IONIC sets new standards for electronic locks bringing benefits to the entire supply chain.

“We’re looking forward to the final and celebrating the achievements of all those who contribute to the success of the glass and glazing industry.”

The winners of the GGP Installer Awards will be announced on 14 March 2024 at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
