PHILADELPHIA, PA – Today at Greenbuild 2013, Architectural Products recognized the winners of its third annual Product Innovation Awards (PIAs). ASSA ABLOY Group brands SARGENT and McKinney were honored, with SARGENT taking home awards for its BHW Trim and IN120 WiFi Access Control Lock, and McKinney for its new Square Barrel Hinge. 

“Building on the success of last year’s program, our third edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director, Architectural Products Magazine.

“ASSA ABLOY is honored to be recognized today by Architectural Products magazine
for its SARGENT and McKinney products,” said Leslie Saunders, VP of Marketing,
ASSA ABLOY. “Each of these three products have made a bold entrance to the architectural community, the IN120 with the concept of an aesthetically pleasing WiFi access control lock, the Square Barrel Hinge demonstrating the continuous expansion of decorative accent offerings, and the BHW Trim for the decorative transformation of the patient experience in healthcare facilities.” 

The Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products that range the gamut from cladding systems to interior finishes. Judged by a group of 50 independent industry professionals, the program represents a mechanism to impartially review product and present items their peers found innovative and worth investigating.
