Wrightstyle, the UK steel glazing company, has significantly extended its system range by becoming a network partner for global building envelope giant Schueco.

The Schueco accredited scheme gives customers the assurance that its fabrication and installation partners have been highly trained and approved to supply the company’s enhanced aluminium glazing systems.  The sensitive nature of this specialist market, together with the crucial importance of fabricating and installing each individual system correctly, led Schueco to implement a quality-led training scheme known as SABRE (Schueco Approved Blast/Bullet Resistance Expert).The scheme only allows trained partners access to the Schueco XR (explosion-resistant) product range of façades, windows and doors.There were four disciplines that Wrightstyle staff had to complete, and be examined on, before accreditation was approved.  These were estimating, design, manufacture and installation – an end-to-end process involving Wrightstyle technicians from different disciplines.Wrightstyle staff have now all been trained and approved by Schueco, allowing the Devizes-based firm to offer a comprehensive range of both steel and aluminium enhanced systems to mitigate against fire, or ballistic and explosive attack.  In a further company development, Wrightstyle has also been assessed as compliant with the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS), and registered on its national database.  CHAS, the largest and fastest-growing health and safety assessment scheme in the UK, provides pre-qualification assessments to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard, and being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers’ compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers. “SABRE approval from Schueco now allows us to offer a range of aluminium systems in addition to our own highly-advanced steel systems.   We also offer a design, fabrication and installation service, making us a one-stop shop for all internal or external glazing system requirements,” said Lee Coates, Wrightstyle’s technical director.“We are also pleased to have been accredited with CHAS as this will greatly simplify health and safety compliance, and provide customers with the reassurance that Wrightstyle is a quality-driven company in system design, supply and installation, and customer support,” he said.EndsFurther information:Jane Embury, Wrightstyle+44 (0) 1380 722 239jane.embury@wrightstyle.co.uk   Media enquiries to Charlie Laidlaw, David Gray PR+44 (0) 1620 844736(m) +44 (0) 7890 396518Charlie.laidlaw@yahoo.co.uk   Wrightstyle, the UK steel glazing company, has significantly extended its system range by becoming a network partner for global building envelope giant Schueco.
