Set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) in 2002, FENSA commenced operations following a request from Government to regulate the market for replacement doors and windows in England and Wales. Since coming on the scene as the original Competent Person Scheme, it has become the largest in the sector with almost 6000 companies self-certifying their compliance under the Building Regulations, issued more than 12 million homeowner certificates and is now approaching the 13 millionth installation to be registered through its scheme. Chris Beedel, Director of Membership, FENSA, says, “FENSA is proud of its status as the largest and longest serving Competent Person Scheme in the industry, and one of the most trusted brands in glazing. “Given that there are 23.5 million households in England and Wales, reaching 13 million registrations will mean at least half of all those households have used a FENSA Member to install their windows and doors. This shows not only that FENSA Members are trustworthy professional companies but also that homeowners recognise the value in using a FENSA Member.” 54 » JUN 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M » » TRADE FABRICATOR and vertical slider specialist Warwick Specialist Window Division has become the latest fabricator to add the Spectus Mechanically Jointed Vertical Slider to its portfolio. Aaron Fountain, Managing Director of Warwick said: “We’re proud to have been manufacturing the Spectus Vertical Slider since 2001 and recognise it as the best in class. The mechanically jointed version takes the window to the next level.” Aaron comments on the changing nature of the market and says the Spectus Mechanically Jointed VS offers exactly what is needed. “Until recently, mechanically jointed Vertical Sliders were considered the window of choice for the heritage market but the move towards higher-end products across the board is making a big difference. These days, we’re just as likely to be asked for a mechanically jointed VS for a new build or retail project as we are for a heritage one. Whatever the scenario, the Spectus Mechanically Jointed VS delivers what’s required.” Warwick Specialist Window Division has been a Spectus fabricator since 2001 and enjoys a strong relationship thanks to the quality of the product and support on offer.
