Designed and developed specifically for composite doors, not only does the lock offer the largest hooks and bolts in the market, the Kubu equipped door lock is set for smart technology, offering security conscious homeowners the ability to check whether their door is locked or unlocked at anytime from anywhere via their Smartphone.

Hurst composite doors will now be produced with Avantis Kubu Equipped Door locks as standard, meaning their trade partners and their customers can access a whole host of innovative features and benefits.

Hurst is the largest dedicated composite door manufacturer to standardise their doors to be compatible with smart technology, a move which has already been well-received by their customers.

Hayley Barker, Marketing Manager at Hurst Doors explains:

“Increasingly, homeowners are looking to smart technology to enhance the security of their home and to enjoy the peace of mind it brings. Our new Avantis Kubu Equipped lock responds to that demand and means that our trade partners can offer their customers an innovative, future-proof product that they can trust.

Kubu locks offer the following features and benefits:

· Simple and affordable smart technology, easy to install and easy to use

· Long-lasting and battery powered solution (batteries lasting 12-18 months)

· No hardwiring required. Kubu is engineered to be a neat and compact smart product

· Kubu is fully supported by an in-house team of technical experts to take hassle away from installers and fabricators

· Works with Amazon Alexa and other devices

· The Kubu App can be downloaded from Google Play and App Store

· A Kubu Smart Lock doesn’t alter the appearance of the door in any way

Mark Bromley, CEO of Avantis said:

“Hurst is a trusted name in the industry so partnering with them to embed our state-of-the-art technology in their range felt like a natural fit. It’s great to see an established, national company such as Hurst leading the way by embracing innovation and technology to elevate their range and enhance their customer offer. Both Kubu and Hurst have the highest standards in quality and security at their heart, so we’re delighted to be working together on creating stylish solutions for tech savvy consumers.”

Fitting Kubu Equipped Doors into homes doesn’t require any additional installation time for Installers. Once the door has been fitted, Installers simply guide homeowners to the Kubu website (www.kubu-home. com), where they can, should they choose to, (homeowners don’t have to activate their door if they don’t want to) directly purchase their Kubu Kit containing the products needed to upgrade and fully activate their Kubu smart lock.

Hayley Barker, Marketing Manager at Hurst Doors, added:

“Our key focus is improving the support we offer to Hurst trade partners and a crucial part of that the continued delivery of a product range that provides homeowners with the solution they are looking for in terms of quality, security and aesthetics. Our partnership with Kubu is another example of our commitment to investing in our trade customers to support their sales and to ensure that we are always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our product offer.”
