Celebrations have been taking place at Customade Group as it toasts being named finalist in an incredible four categories in the National Fenestration Awards.

Four divisions within the group are up for gongs in the annual independent awards. Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions – the creator of the UK’s finest collection of glazed roof products – is finalist in the ‘Conservatory Roof Fabricator’ category, whilst leading composite door and PVCu door panel manufacturer Virtuoso has reached the shortlist in the ‘Composite and Panelled Doors category’.

Polyframe – the UK’s largest fabricator of PVCu windows, doors and conservatories – has been named as finalist in the ‘Fabricator/Manufacturer’ category and is the only fabricator on the shortlist to offer five PVCu systems. The industry defining aluminium brand REAL Aluminium is hoping to maintain its title of ‘Aluminium Company’ having won the award last year.

The multiple nominations highlight the unmatched capabilities of the recently enhanced Customade Group, which merged with Polyframe earlier this year. The group’s product portfolio now spans across PVC-u and aluminium windows and doors, composite doors, aluminium glazed roof products, sealed glass units and specialist glazing.

Claire Miller, Customade Group’s marketing director, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to be named as quadruple finalists. It’s a fantastic achievement for Customade Group and real industry recognition for the quality of our brands and the amazing teams behind them. These awards are the perfect round-off to a terrific year for the group and we’re looking forward to finding out who the winners are in December.”

Voting is now open to everyone and the finalists with the most votes will be announced in early December. Visit the NFA website – www.fenestrationawards.co.uk – to place your vote.
