BS EN 1279 accreditation is the latest cause for celebration at Peterborough’s HiTECH Blinds Ltd, the fast-growing integral blind firm taking the market by storm.

Subjected to rigorous testing at BSi, HiTECH’s best-in-class products passed with flying colours. EN 1279 Part 2 requires glass units to have moisture penetration of less than 16%, but HiTECH’s product was found to have penetration of just 3%. What’s more, a member of test centre staff commented that the product’s fog test performance was the best he’d ever seen.

Founded in 2017 by Nigel Greening along with Mike Yerrell & Michelle Scotney of respected commercial aluminium fabricator AGF Ltd, HiTECH Blinds was established to bring reliable, hassle-free, outstanding-quality integral blinds to fabricators and installers throughout the UK, Ireland & the Channel Isles.

With the help of integrated blinds specialist Ian Woolley, the company has grown rapidly in its first twelve months, as customers switch suppliers in ever-increasing numbers.

Michelle commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to be EN 1279 accredited. We’ve come a very long way in our first year in business – and this is another important milestone on the road to becoming the biggest, best and most respected integrated blind supplier in the UK.”

Sales Director Ian Woolley added: “I’m extremely pleased our products fared so well in testing – but at the same time, I’m not surprised. The materials used and the staff we’ve trained are of the highest quality, and we’ve invested a huge amount of time and effort in developing the best-performing integrated blinds on the market today.

“Our Magnet-operated blinds are extremely easy to use, easy to install, and they come with a ten-year no-nonsense guarantee – twice as long as any of our competitors.

“If you’re interested in learning more about how HiTECH Blinds can help your business grow, get in touch today.”
