Glazpart joins the BPF

Glazpart, the plastic glazing accessories manufacturer, has joined the British Plastics Federation (BPF). The move is part of the business’ external affairs strategy.

As the trading environment adapting to ever-changing legislative and policy changes, leaders of Glazpart felt that it was essential to have a voice in discussions with the BPF and its member companies in the plastics manufacturing sector and the and supply chain to the construction sector. The BPF is marketed as the world’s longest established plastics trade association, and has more than 450 member companies. The federation is said to represent more than 80% of the UK plastics industry when considering turnover.

“The BPF’s moulders group offers the opportunity to network and understand wider industrial markets whilst being part of wider industry discussions impacting the plastics markets,” explained Dean Bradley, Glazpart’s sales director. The business also intends to influence the BPF’s windows group.

“As the regulatory landscape has changed and continues to evolve, we see a clear need to present our concerns to key influencers in the plastics sector,” Dean continued. “We look forward to taking part in future BPF meetings, to discuss the impact of the changes to the building regulations and Approved Document F, regarding ventilation in homes.”

The revised Part F aims to improve the UK’s standards concerning energy efficiency as well as the air quality of UK buildings. The amendments have also been designed to ensure that ventilation is not compromised in the drive towards the government’s net zero carbon targets, which aim to prevent energy loss from residential properties and minimise potential overheating risks. The uplift in standards is expected to be followed by the planned introduction of the Future Homes Standard in 2025. That standard is set to be the subject of a government consultation this year.
