Shutter Shapes from Universal

Leading PVCu profile bending specialist, Universal Arches, has jointly developed what is believed to be the UK’s first arched shutters with market leaders, Thomas Sanderson.

After several months in development and with a close working relationship, Leon Day and the team at Universal Arches have helped Thomas Sanderson launch the first arched and shaped shutters manufactured in the UK. These form part of the ‘LifeTime’ vinyl shutter range that’s promoted for kitchens and bathrooms, due to the high moisture and humidity content found in these rooms.

As the name suggests, this shutter range comes with an impressive 25 year guarantee, such is the pedigree of the names of the two companies. This latest project is further evidence of Universal’s ability to work outside the typical window and door frame industry, as recent curved cable management projects with Rehau also show.

Thomas Sanderson are the UK’s leading blinds and shutters brand. The very nature of the UK market suggested that to address the mass market, the blind and shutter market leaders needed to be able to offer non-standard shapes for their new range of vinyl shutters and Universal Arches were able to develop a product with quality, speed and efficiency.

Leon Day, managing director of Universal Arches commented: ‘Yet again we’ve proven our credentials in manufacturing with the Thomas Sanderson project. We have quality standards and factory processes that set us a long way apart from our nearest competitor, allowing us to look at projects and ventures outside our immediate market.’
