Mila announced at the FIT Show that we had become the exclusive distributor of Mighton’s Avia smart lock into the UK trade market, and we are now supplying the product from stock.
Mila’s ProSecure TBT gearing range is now available with the option of a new fully concealed hinge alongside the existing visible, face-fix option.
It comes with the same combination of high specification and SBD accreditation which is already making Mila’s ProSecure TBT hardware popular with leading fabricators such as Pearl Windows, and with the same market leading 10 year mechanical operation guarantee.
There’s undoubtedly a huge level of interest in Smart Technology in this industry at the moment, but what we have sensed is a degree of questioning amongst fabricators and installers about how they can actually translate that interest into increased sales and of course profits.
Barbara Zogornik is the newly appointed Quality Assurance Manager at Mila. She joined the business just weeks before it sailed through its most recent ISO9001 quality audit with no issues identified, so is in no doubt about Mila’s 100% commitment to quality.
Why the market wants smart locks to generate profitable new business by Richard Gyde
Mila’s stand at the FIT Show was devoted to one single product – the new Avia secure smart lock from Mighton Products. We’ve just become the exclusive UK trade distributors of this Apple HomeKit compatible device, so the timing of the exhibition couldn’t have been better for us.
It was still a bold move though to go to FIT with such a single minded approach, but Avia could potentially be such a game changing product for us and for our customers that we felt it was justified; and the response we had at the show definitely confirmed that.
Over the last year or so, there’s been a fairly dramatic shift in how the industry has come to view smart locks. They have quickly gone from niche to mainstream as both fabricators and installers have come to recognise that they now represent a very real profit opportunity.
