The Locksmith Journal May/Jun 2018 - Issue 56 - Page 30

PROUD SPONSORS OF LOCKEX 2018 30 • LOCKEX2018 PREVIEW Rob says, “Lockex 2018 - Security & Fire Safety will be a one-stop-shop for locksmiths, AUTO LOCKSMITHS, facilities managers, fire and security offices, and ARCHITECTS to advise and inform everyone in the industry of the latest designs and developments from across the globe. We wanted to get a real mix of exhibitors ALL-UNDER-ONE- ROOF so visitors could just circle one weekend in the calendar and not have to spend more of their valuable weekends – and money – at lots of different trade shows. We wanted to welcome people to the show with open arms and not sting them with the hefty parking charges and overpriced food and drink synonymous with trade shows. If an ything, Lockex is the show you can’t afford to miss. Likewise, for exhibitors, it would be unfair of us to get them to set up a stand, and then not make it as ATTRACTIVE and APPEALING as possible to get the visitors in for them to be able to showcase their products and services.” A The A-Z of Lockex… The biggest and best event of the industry is happening this June (and no, as the organisers, we’re not biased at all). Find out why taking a trip to Lockex 2018 – Security and Fire Safety should be as simple as A, B, C… What better way to start the guide than with a word from the event’s organiser, Rob Exley? Just as with Lockex 2016, a series of free workshops and seminars will be held across the weekend from some of the BIGGEST and BEST names in the industry. Warrior Doors’ Managing Director BRETT BARRATT will be hosting his own series of seminars, ‘BREAKING the rules of door design’ explaining the company’s ethos on providing aesthetically-pleasing high security doors and screens, by BALANCING the implications of design features with a product that resists BALLISTIC attack by raiders. The Warrior team will also be showcasing a selection of its high security doors plus video footage of its products under attack. The first choice for councils, housing authorities, and financial services as well as independent jewelers, private residences, and churches, Warrior has supplied products for organisations such as the NHS, National Rail, London Underground and Vaultex. B Opening DOORS to every aspect of the industry, fire DOORS, emergency exit DOORS, DOOR handles, DOOR locks, safe DOORS, smart DOORS, you get the picture, but for locksmiths, security experts, fire safety officers, and anyone in the fenestration industry, prepare to see every type of hardware and technology you could ever wish for, plus anything and everything DOOR related, apart from Jim Morrison! New to Lockex 2018, the ‘Pavilion of Trade Bodies’ will provide visitors and exhibitors alike the CHANCE to meet with leading authorities across the locksmith, auto-locksmith, security and fire safety industries, with representatives on hand to COMMUNICATE the latest in CERTIFICATIONS, CPD points, and CAREER opportunities, plus exclusive master CLASSES. Head to the Pavilion to meet up with organisations such as Secured by Design, the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF), the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI), Security System and Alarm Inspection Board (SSAIB), Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS), the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), and UK Construction Week. C D One of many EXCLUSIVE product displays and demonstrations at Lockex 2018, EVERSAFE will be showcasing its revolutionary range of the EVERSAFE Hardcases and EVERSAFE Backpacks, ahead of the official launch this summer. The EQUIPMENT has been designed for people on the move – whether it be for business or pleasure – to always ENSURE that their personal belongings are totally safe EVERYWHERE they go. The team hope to be able to install ‘docks’ in homes, office, hotels, airports, and stations so that you are able to secure your EVERSAFE luggage away from prying eyes and hands.
