ABS ‘Work with Kubu’ to create something truly special.

FIT Show 2022 will witness the birth of a partnership, set to shake the Smart Security world as Kubu and ABS launch their innovative new true-retro smart product, live at FIT.

With decades of shared experiences in their respective fields, this new alliance is sure to bring some fresh ideas and surprises to the world of Smart technology.

Mark Bromley, CEO of Kubu commented on the partnership by saying, “when we were looking to partner with a cylinder manufacturer to complement our Kubu Smart Security Systems, to be honest, there was only ever one manufacturer in our sights, Avocet and their ABS cylinder platform.”

“It was imperative that we had the best mechanical cylinder on the market. Being PAS24 compliant straight out of the box, and not having to rely on a handle or cylinder guard to be 100% secure makes the ABS cylinder the perfect partner for our market leading Smart Security technology.”

Rythm Jain, CEO of Avocet Hardware Group echoed these sentiments by saying, “when we were approached by Mark and his team, we were excited by their plans and their innovation in a very competitive arena. They wanted to continue setting the pace and challenging the Smart space and we were particularly impressed by their vision for utilising the best features of our respective products to create a market-beating Smart Security System.”

Kubu have been developing their Smart Security systems for a number of years now with excellent penetration and adoption in the end-user space thanks to their work with key fabricators over the years. 

Avocet’s ABS division has been producing award winning three-star high security locks for a decade now and are instantly recognisable as the pioneers of the three star cylinder. Over the years, they have enhanced and created a product portfolio that is the envy of many competitors.

But what does this mean? What is the “partnership” and what is it that will be launched at FIT 2022?

“This development has been going on for months, so we’re bursting to tell people,” said Rythm, “but when FIT was rescheduled, it made sense for us to wait and concentrate on ironing out the kinks, tidy up any loose ends and deliver a true-retro smart solution by launching at the revised FIT show.”

 “We don’t want to give anything away right now,” continued Mark, “but we believe that together we have created the ultimate true-retro smart solution that can be fitted to any door, with any handle, anywhere. Designed to complement our existing Kubu hardware range, it will allow Kubu Pro Installers and partners to fit Kubu Smart Security Technology to previously installed products, quite literally creating a business within a business.”

“Being able to upsell Kubu throughout the home, without having to change the look of your customers existing product with a handle change or surface mounted sensor, is a huge bonus for installers aiming to sell Smart Security.”

Kubu and Avocet will be launching their new innovation on the Kubu stand, number Q31 on day 1 of the show with Avocet supporting that message on stand Q39, so make sure you’re there for what promises to be a very interesting chapter for these two companies.
