Manufactured in the UK
For the UK market, all of your system needs are catered for from our Runcorn manufacturing facility based in the NW of England. From here we extrude, insert the thermal breaks and powder coat, a truly ‘end to end’ process. Why not see how we do it - click here.

Kawneer Installation Certification Scheme (KIC)
Our involvement does not end with the supply of material to our approved dealer network. To minimise the risk of defects associated with fabrication and installation, Kawneer has developed the KIC Training Scheme, which is a two-day intensive installation course followed by an exam. Once successfully completed, each attendee will receive a KIC card highlighting the products that they have been trained to install. Please click here for more details.

Need Something Special? 
Kawneer offers the world's greatest pool of talent in architectural glazing systems and, with the benefit of our own extrusion press and paint plant, we can design custom solutions that will help you to realise your most daring concepts. So don't compromise - by working with Kawneer you can achieve a solution to your most challenging architectural needs.

Total Performance 
High performance is an essential ingredient for all building components nowadays - it is demanded by users and required by current building regulations. Throughout our history we have kept ahead of both the market and regulatory requirements to offer glazing solutions that surpass even the most demanding specifications, and our products meet or exceed all required standards of performance. We have developed leading-edge production techniques to ensure that manufacturing efficiency is optimised, and environmental impact is minimised, and our right-first-time quality management systems have been devised to minimise waste and exceed the requirements of current ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.

Why Aluminium?
Aluminium is the perfect material for architectural glazing products, and has practical advantages over all other available choices, including inherent resistance to corrosion and very low whole-life costs. Aluminium is also an environmentally friendly material and possibly one of the best options for energy saving within the construction industry. In the building sector vast amounts of aluminium are collected for recycling, with rates as high as 98%, and more than 50% of the energy used in aluminium production comes from hydro-electric power. Re-smelting aluminium saves up to 95% of the energy needed to produce primary product. The overall market for used aluminium is steadily growing so the more aluminium there is in a product the more chance it has of being recycled. Kawneer is unique in that 80% of all the aluminium used in the production of our systems comes from recycled material. This has assisted Kawneer in the implementation of our BES 6001 accreditation, which we secured during 2016. Please click here for full details of our Life Cycle Assessment.
