Products that meet the highest standards and comply with the latest regulations are vital. It’s something that Universal Trade Frames take very seriously. Duncan Saunders, Universal’s General Manager, said: “Our customers depend on the quality and compliance of our products and we don’t let them down. It’s why every single combination of all products in our portfolio has undergone extensive testing at Wintech Testing & Certification.”
The certifications that Universal’s products have include PAS 24:2016, which can also be used to demonstrate compliance with Approved Document Q, BS 6375-1 for weathertightness and BS 6375-2 and BS EN 1191 for operation and strength testing.
Duncan commented: “It’s very important to us to offer our customers the highest standards. We could have cascaded certifications but that isn’t the Universal way. We wanted full certification with every product. Not every product passed first time and when one didn’t, we upgraded the specification so it could pass fully.”
Mark Swanborough at Wintech commented: “As an independent UKAS accredited testing laboratory and certification body we were impressed by Universal’s commitment to offering full certification on their entire portfolio and feel sure it will offer their customers a high level of reassurance of the quality on offer.”
Universal’s product portfolio is extensive and includes PVC-u casement, tilt and turn, flush casement windows, sliding sash and Residence9 windows. Its door range includes composite doors, bifolding doors, residential doors and patio doors. Its aluminium offering includes windows and bifolding doors. It also offers Fab&Fix Hardware, bow canopies, Kestrel roofline, cladding and window finishes and a cavity former/closer.
Universal has been providing the highest quality products to the trade since 1996 and is renowned as a company its customers can rely on to deliver top quality, innovative products and support and that strives to stay ahead of the moving trends within the industry. It’s a reputation that is richly deserved as this approach to certification demonstrates.
