Virtual Engineer, a technology solution for the control and diagnostics of automatic doors, gates and barriers, has won one of the illustrious 40th AI Specification Awards sponsored by the Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA).
The innovative product from Strand Technologies was announced winner of the Product Design and Innovation Electronic Award (Electronic) category. The gala ceremony held at the standout ‘Cheesegrater’ Leadenhall Building, in Central London.
Ken Price, ADSA’s Managing Director, presented the award to Strand Technologies’ directors Simon Bowden and Paul Ryan. This was a landmark moment for a company which was founded only last year.
Virtual Engineer was selected from a shortlist featuring products from ASSA ABLOY, Codelocks and Salto Systems.
It uses a device attached to entrances and ‘talks’ to a cloud software platform for on-site or remote management. It sends alerts to flag up problems and identify potential causes – potentially saving time and money for engineer call outs.
Ken said: “I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to Strand Technologies. This is a major accolade which recognises the problem-solving nature of a ground-breaking product that blends electronic and digital technologies for the efficient management of assets.”
The event was organised by The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI), in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Douglas Masterson, Technical Manager for GAI, commented: “We would like to thank ADSA for its involvement and sponsoring this award. We were taken aback by the quality of the entries. All the category finalists demonstrated effective electronic solutions which underpin a user-focused evolution within our industry.”
