Wrightstyle win Global Business Excellence Award for glazing systems that save lives and for designing the world’s first unlatched fire door.

Global Business Excellence Award

Wrightstyle Limited design, fabricate and install advanced steel and aluminium glazing systems worldwide.

They have won the Outstanding Innovation category at the 2016 Global Business Excellence Awards.

The award was made for Wrightstyle’s significant contribution to public safety in the development of glazing systems designed to protect commercial buildings from terrorist or ballistic attacks, and for designing the world’s first unlatched fire door.

Tim Kempster, Wrightstyle’s managing director, said that Wrightstyle now sell systems throughout the world, fulfilling the company’s vision to make the world a safer place by developing glazing systems to protect escape routes in the event of fire, and protect the inhabitants of buildings from terrorist or criminal attack.

Glazing systems withstand lorry bomb attacks

Wrightstyle has designed and tested a glazing system capable of withstanding a lorry bomb attack without shattering.  The breakthrough test, conducted independently at a specialist test site within an RAF base in Northumberland, involved the structurally-glazed system being subjected to the equivalent of 500 kilos of TNT, the size of a lorry bomb – and roughly ten times the size of a car bomb.

Unlatched fire door system

Wrightstyle also designed an unlatched fire door system, launched in 2011. This is a fire safety breakthrough because in normal use, whether in an office or busy educational or healthcare corridor, its doors allow free passage in both directions, swinging back automatically into the closed position.
