If ever there was a time when the membership of a leading professional association in any industry is invaluable, it’s now. They are the source of independent, comprehensive advice when members are busy trying to optimise and amend operations during challenging times.
There are always good reasons why a manufacturer or associate should become a member of The Steel Window Association (SWA), a group of people who are busier than ever now. As well as having access to the latest product developments within the industry, members also receive information from organisations such as The Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) and the Construction Products Association (CPA).
During the current COVID-19 crisis, SWA members are being kept up to date with information from top sources. The GGF issues daily updates giving members guidance within the housing, construction and building maintenance industries – including the job retention scheme, small business grants, deferred VAT payments and business rates holidays. The SWA receives these updates and immediately forwards them to members.
The CPA has set up a dedicated Coronavirus web page for members to access directly and issues weekly updates with industry news, industry responses to the crisis; along with the latest housing and economic statistics as they are changing on a daily basis.
From everyone at the Steel Window Association and all of its members, we hope everyone stays safe and well during this tough time.
SWA members have exclusive access to a range of collectively developed energy rated systems which are compliant with building regulations and that are recognised by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC). The SWA also works in cooperation with both the British and European standards agencies, window research bodies and other influential organisations; including FENSA and as mentioned above, the Construction Products Association and the Glass & Glazing Federation. Members of the Steel Window Association offer a UK wide service for the repair and replacement of various types of old metal windows, doors and screens, as well as being able to manufacture new fenestration which fully meets the requirements of the building regulations. Choosing an SWA member to manufacture and install your steel windows and doors ensures that you are receiving the highest standard of fabrication, installation and customer service.
