WENKO wins the German Innovation Award 2022

UV-Loc is already a winner

Hilden, 24 May 2022. For more than 70 years, the German Design Council has been making innovative spirit visible - with an award that selects the best innovations worldwide and is known across all industrial sectors.

In 2022, WENKO is one of the winners of the German Innovation Award with a technology that revolutionises the fixing of wall-mounted accessories without drilling: with the unique UV-Loc, a record-breaking global novelty.

This product shows that the market leader in the fixing without drilling segment has a firm focus on the needs of its customers and is again putting its vision of the future into practice with visible success.


UV-Loc, a system with a competitive edge

The UV-Loc bathroom accessories will be launched in autumn in three expressive collections. And they all have one thing in common - their unprecedented strength: By means of ultraviolet light, which hardens a liquid adhesive, the WENKO UV-Loc products develop their ultra-powerful adhesive strength in only 60 seconds and can be immediately subjected to loads of up to 90 kg.

This enables them to break two records at once - in the fixing without drilling segment, the innovative technology has the shortest drying time and by far the strongest adhesive bond.

WENKO shapes the sector with innovative strength

“Our UV-Loc technology has ultra-fast and ultra-strong adhesion qualities - and to us, the German Innovation Award 2022 is just as ultra-strong," says Niklas Köllner, one of WENKO's two managing directors.

We are incredibly proud that we could convince the international expert jury all along the line. The title ‘Winner’ shows us, our customers and partners that not only are we breaking new, innovative ground, but are also paving the way for more. We will continue with fresh motivation in just the same way, spurred on by this tailwind."
