Wood body looks to up glazier skills


THE BRITISH Woodworking Federation is to launch a recruitment drive in a bid to boost the number of accredited timber window installers.

It wants 25 installers to become members of its Timber Window Accreditation Scheme by the end of next year and will look to push this number closer to 100 in the future.

Scheme manager Adam Frankling claimed the move would give customers a fully accredited timber window package.

He said: 'To a large extent this is a demand-lead initiative because we are receiving large numbers of enquiries from customers who want TWA Scheme windows installed by someone they know they can trust.'

And Mr Frankling said that non-timber window installers would be welcomed onto the scheme.

He added: 'Provided that when it comes to timber windows they are prepared to only supply and recommend those made by TWA Scheme manufacturers, we are quite happy to admit them.'
