First joint project launched
Novoferm and KIWI sign a partnership agreement
As one of Europe’s leading system suppliers of doors, garage door solutions and loading systems, Novoferm has launched a partnership with KIWI.KI GmbH, a pioneer in digital door access solutions. The objective of this partnership is to integrate the KIWI system in Novoferm products. There are plans for a range of projects, the first of which introduces KIWI technology to Novoferm doors for communal and underground garages and is al-ready underway. The next step will be to equip multifunctional sheet steel doors with the KIWI system.
“The partnership with KIWI is another logical step in our successful digitalisation strategy – which is now also being introduced in the highly promising growth market for digital door solutions,” said Norbert Dyx, Managing Director at Novoferm Vertriebs GmbH. “KIWI has the necessary expertise in digital access and security technology. Combined with our innovative products, this will mean that we can offer the ideal solutions for housing companies and provide them with even better support as a partnership.”
KIWI Managing Director Karsten Nölling explained: “Supplying doors and garage doors with a digital lock system ex works is the next logical step in our success story. Many housing companies have already replaced their existing mechanical lock systems with our digital solution and now we are able to offer all-in-one solutions alongside Novoferm. This enhances the efficiency of our portfolio management, both for new construction and for renovation projects. Many of our new construction customers are already using our fully equipped SmartDOOR, a front door with integrated KIWI lock system. We want to work with Novoferm to follow up on these good experiences.”
Novoferm and KIWI have already launched their first joint project: Novoferm doors for communal and underground garages are already available with the KIWI system. Another major project involving the integration of KIWI functions in Novoferm multifunctional steel doors is in the planning stage. The steel doors with digital opening technology are expected to be available from mid-2020.
