UNION sponsors Walsall disability awards UNION Architectural Hardware, part of the ASSA ABLOY group, the global leader in door opening solutions, has sponsored the recent Walsall Disability Awards. The event, which took place on 21st April at The Bescot Stadium, is an annual highlight for the Walsall Disability Forum who help coordinate local disability activities, and is designed to acknowledge good practice and disability awareness within the Borough of Walsall. UNION involvement with the awards came through the development of the Easy Access Night Latch. Pauline Richardson, Product Manager, explained: “We gained a lot of extremely valuable feedback from working with the Walsall Disability Forum as we developed the Easy Access Night Latch. After attending the 2009 awards, we were more than happy to sponsor the 2010 event and lend our support to what is a very special evening.” In developing a product that is specifically designed to assist with fulfilling the requirements of the DDA and satisfy the recommendations of Approved Document M, UNION have further reinforced their commitment to introduce new technology to aid the disabled community.
