As an innovative security partner, ABUS supports prevention and charity projects, associations working in gerontechnology and institutions as well as providing visitors at festivals and open-air events with a secure place to store their valuables.
Against this background, the National Association for Paediatric Neurology Aid has joined forces with the Münster-based communication agency pars pro toto and ABUS, a worldwide leader in security technology based in Wetter (Ruhr), to launch Project Stadthelm (Project City Helmet), a national prevention and charity project to promote wearing helmets voluntarily.
Under the banner ‘Lock in Your Love’, over $150,000 was donated to the SickKids Hospital in 2016. The theme for 2017 was ‘Experience Giving’, with a goal of $160,000. Each year Vaughan Mills donates the net proceeds from the Love Lock Wall and Santa photo proceeds to SickKids.
As a reliable partner for industry, commerce, trade and consumers in the growing 50-plus market, the GGT Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gerontotechnik® (German Association for Gerontechnology) is a first-rate institute. The GGT has set the goal of ensuring that products relevant for older people that offer comfort, user-friendliness, security, functionality, aesthetics and an attractive design are available on the market.
The GGT acts as a mediator between industry, science and users. Exceptionally user-friendly and age-appropriate products for the growing 50-plus market are labelled with the GGT test seal. The GGT also tests optimised products in everyday use in senior centres known as GGT living labs. ABUS and the GGT are connected by years of cooperation in matters of security for seniors and older people.
ABUS offers its support to the innovative locker system from CarDeRobe as the main sponsor. The relatively new company provides visitors to open-air events with a mobile locker system. This involves four trucks, each of which is equipped with 840 lockers in sizes M and XL.
Secure storage of (valuable) items at festivals and other events
This system gives visitors to festivals and other events the option of having their valuables or their coats stored securely during the event. The visitor rents a CarDeRobe locker of their choice for the period of time they need, during which they can use it freely at any time with their own key.
