QED announce a new partnership with Aiphone UK


As our world develops, the need for better and more reliable building access and control will grow. Quality Essential Distribution and Aiphone UK’s new partnership highlights the demand by customers for a range of products to fulfil the need to minimise the risk of unauthorised access.

Aiphone are able to provide a COVID-secure intercom and entry systems for every environment.  For example, the education sector introduced remote teaching earlier this year, however not all schools or households are able to provide distance education effectively. Hence the increase in the number of intercom systems being installed in Schools before the new school year begins in September.  This is just one of the measures many schools are taking to prepare safer environments for teachers, students and parents.  Property management and healthcare buildings are also investing in upgrading intercom and entry solutions.

Due to the demand from healthcare, education, residential and commercial sectors Aiphone recently launched the Aiphone ‘WAVE’ button to combat the current pandemic. These modules are designed to keep high hygiene and minimise contacts to surfaces and visitors simply ‘WAVE‘ towards the entrance panel and the sensor detects the motion to call the premises – complete touch-free communication is also possible with this system.

QED has recognised the needs of the security industry are changing and although traditional security products continue to be necessary the priority has shifted.  The manufacturers focus is on reviewing existing products and systems to help keep people and properties safe in the current climate and for the foreseeable future.   We have already seen upgrades, new products being introduced or reintroduced.  This is one reason Quality Essential Distribution is exploring new supplier partnerships and widening its product range and is preparing to face how to meet the market demand and for the foreseeable future.

Matt Philp, QED’s Product Development Director said “This partnership has been driven by the need to add more flexibility with our product range to support our partners working on keeping the general public safe as we must face how different this new world has become. It is a pleasure to work with Aiphone, whose range of products fills a gap in the marketplace”.

QED will now distribute Aiphone’s range of intercom and entry systems offering reliable solutions for the most diverse range of environments.

Harvey Williams, Aiphone’s General Sales Manager said “For more than 70 years Aiphone has been at the forefront of technological development offering solutions packed with innovative features, many unique to Aiphone. We are delighted to have entered into a partnership with Quality Essential Distribution whose values and culture of delivering the highest quality products to customers on time and to the right specification to make their life as easy as possible matches our own.”
