Energy high as voting really gears up
We’re right in the meaty part of voting in this year’s National Fenestration Awards and the competition in all categories is heating up nicely!
The NFAs have passed two important milestones in the past few weeks. Firstly, the number of registered users has roared past the magic 1000 barrier. This isn’t just a number, but a clear and impressive representation of the number and diversity of the people taking part in these unique awards. Within that 1000+ people are representatives from the timber, PVC, steel, aluminium, conservatory roof, fabrication, sysco, glass and many other sectors. This level of engagement is what has made these awards truly representative.
The second milestone of note is the number of votes cast. The number is already way past the level of votes in 2013, and with weeks still left to go, the final number could be enormous!
At the time of writing, there will be just over 5 weeks left for people to cast their votes. For those who are not yet registered, taking part is incredibly simple. Go to www.fenestrationawards.co.uk to register and be part of something revolutionary!
Liniar announced as Cool Wall sponsors
Popular industry extruders Liniar have been announced as official Cool Wall sponsors in the last few weeks.
They are to work with the National Fenestration Awards on what has become one of it’s most well known features right up until the end of 2016, securing what is set to become a successful and fruitful partnership both for Liniar and the NFAs.
Marketing Director Sue Davenport explains: “The Cool Wall is a great way to showcase some of the gorgeous work we know installers are proud of – and as it’s online, it’s easy to vote for a winner. The sponsorship agreement will see Liniar increase its online presence and we look forward to working more closely with the NFA to maximise the potential of this opportunity.”
With Liniar on board, and some very high quality installations on display, the Cool Wall looks set to get even bigger over the coming years.
GQA Qualifications announced as second main event sponsor
Continuing a busy period for the NFAs, long term award supporter GQA Qualifications have been announced as the second main event sponsor.
GQA Qualifications have been the longest supporter of the National Fenestration Awards, and it is that support which has helped the awards get off the ground and become an established and exciting industry scheme.
Speaking about the awards and becoming a Main Event sponsor, Mick Clayton, CEO of GQA, said: “I have seen the awards grow from the initial idea and launch into what is now a prominent industry recognition initiative and I’m delighted to be able to continue our support of Jason and his team at the NFAs. The Awards event planned is something different to the norm, highlighting the creativity and different thinking within the team, and giving a fitting conclusion to the nomination and voting process”

Partnership with Windowbase brings steel industry awareness
Industry data specialists and NFA partners Windowbase have helped the awards gain new awareness to other parts of the UK fenestration sector, namely the steel sector.
By working with Windowbase the NFAs have been able to promote themselves to a much wider selection of the UK fenestration industry. It has allowed people who had not previously known about the awards to become familiar with the name, what the awards are and what they stand for. In fact it this partnership which lead to one of the companies in the steel category make it through to the final voting phase.
After speaking with Clement Windows, an installation business in the steel sector of our industry, it turns out that they found out about the awards after being sent one of the NFAs regular email updates to the industry. From there they went to the main NFA site and decided that this was something they would like to be part of. They said that if they had not got the email, they would not have known about the awards and would not have been part of them at this stage.
There is still plenty of time to take part and help make your mark in this year’s National Fenestration Awards. Go to www.fenestrationawards.co.uk to find out more and help reward some very deserving UK fenestration people and businesses!
