Our congratulations to Jackloc, who were recently awarded the prestigious Queen's Award 2017.
Leicester based Jackloc, originators of the acclaimed cable window and door restrictor, have recently been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise and Innovation for 2017.
Founded as a small family business in 2003, Jackloc has expanded to include a whole range of quality window and door restrictors including push-and-turn, swivel/stud, folding and of course the original key-lockable Jackloc, now supplied internationally to respected businesses, including leading hotel chains and the NHS. Designed and manufactured in the UK and extensively tested to BS EN standards, Jackloc is approved by The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in the City of New York and The Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council in the United Arab Emirates. They also won the Thomas Telford Award for Innovation and were named Leicestershire Small Business of the Year 2015.
The most popular items of the Jackloc range are the key-locking and non-locking cable window restrictors, which were reportedly invented by the founders’ father as a low cost and easy to install safety solution, following a conversation with a hotelier who had a close call with a falling child. Since then, the restrictors have become invaluable for many homes and businesses, protecting thousands of lives every day.
The Queen’s Award was established over 5 years ago as a symbol of excellence, giving UK businesses international recognition, with awards being presented by Her Majesty The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister and an Advisory Committee (comprised of the Head of the Civil Service and representatives from government, the private sector and the Trade Unions).
Regarding Jackloc’s receipt of the award, Founder and Director of Jackloc, Emma Wells, commented: “We are unbelievably honoured to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category […] To be recognised by the highest honour in UK business, renowned across the world, is an incredibly proud moment for Jackloc and is the result of our continued commitment to innovation and safety”.
Here at Next Day Locks, we are proud to stock a wide range of high quality products from reputable manufacturers, including a range of the esteemed, award-winning, Jackloc cable restrictors.
