The Fenestration News Bulletin this week will be sent to more than 14,000 recipients in just over 9,000 organisations aligned to the Window Industry. Making it an effective delivery platform to get your Companies message across.

This week on an organised trip to Belgium Deceuninck, the company that is always leading from the front, has shown us the future of the window, an exciting proposition and clearly destined to become best in class. Rob McGlennon, Chris Jones and their team also excelled with exceptional hospitality.

The trip was topped off with a moving visit to the Menin Gate and the Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery in this the centenary year of the ending of the Great War.

For more on Deceuninck and their forward thinking please phone Rob or Chris.

Promat UK: "For fire resistant glazing to deliver on its promise, it has to be tested as a complete system. All the elements and components are chosen to work together to achieve the level of fire resistance required. Change one element – such as the glass type or glazing beads – and there is absolutely no guarantee that the installation will offer protection above what you’d expect from standard glazing. " says Ian Cowley, Regional Director (UK and Scandinavia)

Deceuninck: "To say we’re pleased with our three award nominations is an understatement! Our mission is to give customers the products, service and support to do well and it’s great to get this recognition across a variety of categories". says MD Rob McGlennon

Epwin Window Systems: "Frontier has an incredibly strong proposition and this is reflected in the take up from customers. It delivers everything the market is looking for. " Said Marketing Manager Gerald Allen

Pilkington: " This building is the focal point for the internationally renowned campus, which is set to continue to grow over the next 20 years. We’re proud that Pilkington Planar™ has been selected to play such a central role. " said Phil Savage, Head of Sales

Timberweld: " Most of the fabricators who were interviewed loved the look of the flush sash, in particular the timber-look butt joints, " comments Managing Director Alan Burgess. " They saw demand growing fast, but a significant number thought mechanically jointing was ‘a pain to fabricate’ and want to weld to meet volume demand cost effectively. "

Steel Window Association: From the Ivy League university campuses of America to warehouse properties flanking many of our inland waterways, along with the internationally-recognised minimalist homes created by architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, steel windows have made an indelible mark on our built environment. SWA President Darren Lloyd


Letter to the Editor, definition of 'suited hardware - Nick Dutton

Dear Ian

Over recent weeks there's been increased debate about what exactly is the definition of 'suited hardware.' For years we have been sold door furniture ranges under this banner, yet this definition is now being questioned.

The Cambridge Dictionary suggests that suite is a noun often used in relation to 'a set of furniture for one room, of matching design and colour.' So, for the door furniture sector it would seem that the term 'suited' would be appropriate only when all components share similarities in both finish and shape.…»

Yours sincerely

Nick Dutton, CEO Brisant Secure
