The Steel Window Association (SWA), the trade organisation that supports its member companies with a wide-ranging service relating to product development, market research and promotion, has a new member, Telford-based Steel Window Fittings Ltd.
Steel Window Fittings decided to join as the company will be better able to assure new customers that its window accessories and business practices conform to the highest criteria, after meeting the SWA’s vigorous standards.
Since 2010 SWF has been successfully manufacturing handles, stays, hinge, bolts and openers, as well as safety locks/restrictors and concealed multipoint hardware for metal framed doors and windows, to the commercial and domestic sectors, both in the UK and globally.
The company supplies solutions for traditional and heritage applications, as well as advanced modern systems, to window manufacturers, restoration specialists and the public as well as private sectors.
James Barrett, Founder and director said that SWF not only understands steel window systems but also how the manufacturers actually fabricate them. He explained that it is essential that the new systems designed and produced can offer standardisation and transferability between the different window systems, including W20 and W40.
SWF believes that it should be of great value to fellow SWA members due to its extensive knowledge and expertise of window hardware, and the systems on which these are applied.
