Safedoors and Safedoor Scotland have unveiled two distinct new composite door set offers specifically developed to serve markets north and south of the border through dedicated ranges.
From the Epwin Group stable Safedoors will supply trade markets in England and Wales, while Safedoor Scotland will supply fabricators and installers North of the border, operating as a completely independent business.
Paul Lindsay, director, Epwin Group Extruded Products Division, said: “We don’t believe a ‘one size fits all approach works’ in the composite door market. It represents a growth area but your offer has to be right for the end user and there are clear regional variations which can be very difficult to manage if you’re supplying products on a national basis.
“We’re drawing together a lot of collective expertise and resource but it’s being delivered independently by companies and businesses that are far closer to the markets they serve. That delivers increased flexibility on delivery and service but equally a far stronger understanding of what installers need from us to support sales.”
Door sets from Safedoors and Safedoor Scotland feature a dedicated fully reinforced 70mm outer frame from Profile 22, a thermally efficient fully prepped GRP slab, full face aluminium hinges and lock plates, a low threshold with twin seals and 98 per cent recycled cill.
Buying north or South of the border, doors from the Safedoors Network also achieve PAS23/24 and are fully weather tested to BS6375. All doors are also guaranteed for 10 years from the date of installation.
Styles, glass and hardware are selected by Safedoors and Safedoor Scotland independently of each other to reflect differences in end user tastes, climate and regulatory requirements.
Lindsay continued: “The composite door market has changed and evolved and Safedoor has evolved with it, from beginnings as a loose network of local dealers when it was launched by the Epwin Group in 2009, to two independent geographical operations fully geared towards identifying and servicing the specific needs of their target area.”
Safedoor Scotland, is headed by business manager, Chris Connelly. “We’re a Scottish owned, Scottish-run business serving the Scottish composite door market. It’s an offer that we know works and which is already delivering results for a growing number of Scottish installers and fabrication businesses.
“We’re not resting on our laurels but simply by being here at the heart of the Scottish road network in Perth, we can reach our customers far more quickly than UK-wide suppliers and because we can be flexible installers and fabricators can be more flexible and that can win business.”
In England and Wales Safedoors represents a new trade composite door offer from the Epwin Group. Delivered through its composite door manufacturing business Permadoor, it draws on more than two decades experience in supplying the social housing sector to deliver a new dedicated trade offer.
Alan Calverley, marketing manager, Safedoors, said: “We obviously have a lot of heritage in the composite door industry but the trade range is completely new. We’ve underpinned that dedicated product offer with the creation of a team of trade sales specialists and new customer service centre, there to support our trade customers.
“What they’re getting is all of the service and support they would get and more from a trade supplier but are also able to tap into more than 20 years manufacturing experience and the quality that that brings to product manufacture.”
