PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Achieving new occupational health and safety certification » » MANAGEMENT AND STAFF FROM A leading PVCu window and door manufacturer are celebrating after achieving ISO 45001 certification. Shelforce was assessed before Christmas and has now been certified as meeting the new international standard of occupational health and safety. The new management system has replaced the OHSAS 18001 and enables Shelforce to provide safe and healthy working conditions, prevent work-related injury and ill health, and continually improve its occupational health and safety performance. The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts and follows other management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. Howard Trotter, Shelforce’s Business Manager, said: “Our staff are hugely important to us, so it is absolutely vital that we provide them with a safe place to work. The ISO management system is also about being proactive about health and safety and continual improvement, which we strive for here at Shelforce. Achieving ISO 45001 certification puts us in an elite category of businesses, and the level of excellence is internationally recognised. It will greatly contribute to us moving forward as a company in the future.” GLAMPING DOORS AND WINDOWS ARE PODS’ GIFT » » INDEPENDENT NETWORK MEMBER M&M Windows has secured an ongoing contract with a ‘glamping pod’ supplier based in Morecambe. Using VEKA’s Fully Sculptured system, family-run M&M Windows has manufactured and installed single glazed doors and windows for around 100 pods, so far, as well as a number of shaped side panels. Michael McCoy of M&M Windows explains: “The Directors of Lune Valley Pods - Samual Westworth and Patrick Benson - were looking for a quality product from a source they could trust. They knew us and our work and were confident that we would be able to supply the products and service required at an extremely high standard – a fact that is clearly illustrated by our Independent Network membership. “We were able to quote within the budget and, thanks to VEKA’s Variations colour collection, M&M Windows is able to offer a huge choice of colours and woodgrain options to suit whatever orders come in for these pods. So far, we’ve provided doors and windows with Irish Oak on both sides, as well as the popular Anthracite Grey exterior and White interior combination.” EXTEND YOUR REACH WITH NEW AWNING RANGE » » OUTDOOR LIVING specialists and G18 Award finalists, the Milwood Group has sprung into Spring with the official launch of the Heston range, the brand-new collection of premium awnings. Combining three distinct awning systems, the new Heston range is designed to provide installers with a premium solution to suit any outdoor space. While the Heston Light boasts a sharp, modern design, the Heston Flat features a smooth, more rounded finish. The star of the range, however, is the Heston Pro which offers a discrete, yet high- performance system. Each awning offers massive amounts of customisation with 117 different fabric colours and a choice of four standard colours and 16 colour combinations for the frame. Operated by an electric motor, the three Heston systems can be opened and closed with the touch of a button. What’s more, the systems are almost completely hidden when retracted fully. 48 » A PR 2019 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
