Scottish Veka fabricator, Andrew Wright, has been awarded the EC Certificate of Achievement to produce escape doors fitted with emergency exit panic hardware.
MD, Charlie Berry, explained: “We were audited by BSI and we’re delighted to have achieved compliance to gain this certificate, especially when very few other manufacturers have been able to meet the stringent requirements.
“Andrew Wright has always been at the forefront of industry innovations, and we’ve been proud to fabricate Veka products since 1986, as this has allowed us to gain a host of quality and security accreditations.
“The quality of the Veka product and our commitment to high standards means we are well-placed to manufacture for and supply to the trade and commercial sectors, as well as domestic. Andrew Wright products meet or exceed all the accreditations required for local authority and education projects.
“All our manufactured products are CE marked as per BS EN 14351 and Andrew Wright is a manufacturer of BS 7421 and PAS 24 Kitemark licensed windows and doors. We also hold a Secured by Design licence, which recognises that we are providers of high quality security products.
“The company was originally established way back in 1937 and after WWII, Andrew Wright Glass won the contract to re-glaze blitz-damaged Belfast.
“Our heritage and our sterling reputation mean the world to us, which is why we will only provide the highest quality systems. Our customers know they can come to us for the most safe and secure products, and having the EC Certificate for escape doors is an important part of this.
“Andrew Wright remains family owned and employs more than 100 skilled workers. We’re certainly proud to be one of the most important employers in the area.”
