VBH is among the first companies to be awarded the new BSI Kitemark in respect of Building Hardware used in Windows and Doorsets.

The hardware covered includes products for the manufacture of outward opening, and tilt & turn windows, residential doors, bi-fold doors, lift slide doors, inline sliding patio doors and the greenteQ Invisifold slide & fold door system. As well as the company’s own greenteQ hardware, the Kitemark hardware schedule also covers products from many of VBH’s partner brands including AGB, Yale and Roto.

Business development Manager Rob Norman said: “Not only is the Kitemark a badge of quality for our products but it also gives added credence to our Q-secure consumer guarantee, as all the hardware on our Kitemark schedule is also on our Q-secure Approved Hardware list.

“It also gives the possibility of us helping VBH customers to more easily achieve their own accreditation. Depending on what steps they take, this can lead to gaining additional business from the new build and commercial sectors.”
