It’s the Steel Window Association’s (SWA) role to ensure that architects, contractors and homeowners know that steel windows, with their slender sight-lines and extended lifecycle, are ideal for a wide range of construction projects. Membership is reporting strong activity across the sectors and new members continue to join the ranks, seeking strength in numbers as well as access to the association’s wealth of technical information. These include the Specifier’s Guide and a series of Fact Sheets explaining different aspects to the performance of steel windows and related components, including the glazing systems and ironmongery.
SWA members are regularly carrying out upgrades to properties within conservation areas or specific historic buildings as well as supplying windows for a variety of commercial and public new-build projects. The most recent company to join the SWA is Midland Metal Windows of Hucknall, Nottingham.
Midland Metal Windows’ Mark Spencer, comments “The SWA is a well-established organisation which has a respected reputation setting standards for manufacture and specification. We wanted to be able to state we comply with these standards to ensure customer confidence in our products. We look forward to joining to contributing to make sure steel windows continue to meet the needs of the construction industry.”
In addition to its collective technical capabilities, The Steel Window Association can also assist member companies with guidance on such issues as training, health & safety and legal matters.
