CMS has partnered with Kawneer in a move to give more customers access to a greater range of fenestration and building envelop solutions.
To improve its technical credentials further, CMS has also become a member of the Centre for Window Cladding Technology (CWCT).
CWCT uses various testing methods to determine the level of serviceability of a window, façade or cladding system when subjected to different levels of water, air and solid object impact.
The final level of certification is dependant on the pressure reached or the degree of damage caused after impact.
The standards that make up the CWCT tests are calculated to give independent verification that windows and cladding designed for the building envelope will achieve the values expected.
Its membership provides additional assurance to clients and main contractors and sits alongside a variety of key industry memberships and accreditations that CMS currently hold.
These range from Investors in People and ISO 14001 at a business management level, right through to Construction line, CHAS, Secured by Design and Energy Saving Trust recommended status which directly benefit clients.
