Safestyle UK is FENSA Perfect For Second Successive Year

Share Article

Safestyle UK achieved a 100% building regulations pass record by FENSA.

Our success is down to the skill and enthusiasm shown by all, from sales to installation. They are now preparing to increase their efforts even further to ensure that a hat-trick of inspections is achieved in the coming year.

For the second successive year, Safestyle UK (, the key retail subsidiary of Style Group UK Limited, the country's largest independent replacement window and door company, has been awarded a 100% Building Regulations pass record by the Government approved Fenestration Self- Assessment Scheme (FENSA) for its installations.

This latest accolade not only emphasises the continuous and impressive growth of the high profile retail company, Safestyle UK but also reflects strongly on the high quality of its products and its installation teams throughout the United Kingdom.

The FENSA scheme has been set up by the Glass and Glazing Federation with Government approval to ensure the industry complies with all relevant Building Regulations requiring all installations of windows and doors to meet demanding thermal performance standards. All homeowners who have windows and doors replaced must ensure they either get a certificate from their Local Authority Building Control or have the work completed by a FENSA-registered company such as the Style Group's Safestyle UK subsidiary.

To ensure the installations meet and maintain the standards set out, samples of the work of every installer are inspected regularly and at random by FENSA who then issue the appropriate certification, which is particularly important to householders if and when properties are sold on. Areas covered include correct and approved use of fire exits, disabled access, safety glass, strict thermal standards, ventilation and no worsening of the functional requirement of the property.                                        

Style Group's Chief Executive, John Ross, explained: "We are all very proud of achieving the perfect result from FENSA inspections for a second successive year because it undoubtedly reflects our ability to continually produce only the highest quality window and door systems backed up by installation teams who, we believe, are the very best in the industry. It also clearly underlines our determination to continue the development of our unbeatable customer care and service record."

Andy Clegg, the Head of Survey and FENSA Co-ordinator at Safestyle UK, added: "This is a fantastic achievement when you consider that for the second year in succession we have come through with a 100 per cent pass rate on all installations inspected despite the very demanding criteria set by FENSA and the Government.

"Our success is down to the skill and enthusiasm shown by all, from sales to installation. They are now preparing to increase their efforts even further to ensure that a hat-trick of inspections is achieved in the coming year."
