Blairs gain SBD accreditation

Alex Gray, managing director for Blairs Windows and Doors

Blairs Windows and Doors, a Kömmerling manufacturing partner that is part of the Saveheat Group, has joined Secured by Design, the official police security initiative that works to improve buildings’ security and that of their immediate surroundings, and to provide safe places for people to live, work, shop and visit. Founded in 1913, Blairs has developed a longstanding reputation for quality windows, conservatories and doorsets.

Having more than 100 years industry experience, the team at Blairs Windows and Doors produce superior timber, aluminium and PVC-U products that are reportedly ‘unrivalled in quality and design’. Blairs supply to contractors, builders and individuals. Its team has a wealth of knowledge to help guide clients and specifiers through design, planning, procurement and fabrication stages, alongside their Blairs-approved installers.

With state-of-the-art equipment and expert craftsmanship, Blairs claim to provide the highest quality service and products, delivered on time and in full. All products are produced at manufacturing facilities in Greenock, Inverclyde and Hillington, near Glasgow, to the highest certified industry standards, and all products come with a 10-year guarantee.

Being recognised as having Secured by Design accreditation means that Blairs Windows and Doors’ products have been successfully tested and certificated to the BS 7412/PAS24:2016 standard. This important new certification also matches that of its sister business within the group, Merlin Network, which is based in Dalgety Bay, Fife.

Alex Gray, Blairs’ managing director, said: “Security is one of the key elements that we know is very important to all our customers, in relation to our product range. Since 1913, Blairs has continued to build on its reputation for high-quality products that are secure as well as long lasting. Our investment to become Secured by Design-accredited further strengthens our reputation and prominence in the Scottish window and door industry.”
