Halo customer Watergate Flood Solutions Ltd has been certified with the recently revised PAS1188 BSI Kitemark for Flood Protection Products for its composite flood door.
Based in Hebburn, Tyne & Wear, the company spent 18 months honing its design and subjecting products to rigorous testing in order to achieve the accreditation, with support from VEKA Group. The anti-flood specialist – which fabricates up to 50 doors every week – made the switch to Halo profile in 2015, and has been using its outer frames exclusively ever since. The most recent PAS1188 certificate will be the company's second, having already received one for its PVC-U door models.
Andy Jones, Group Sales and Marketing Director, said:
Homeowner Cindy, who opted for dual colour vertical sliders with decorative sash horns, said:
“We have seen some really creative installations with our VS windows including beautiful conversions of heritage properties, benefiting from the modern technology of PVC-U windows but with the look of traditional timber.”
“For a house like this that would have had vertical sliders originally, it just felt right to put them back, but in a modern way. So we’ve opted for PVC-U windows with a woodgrain finish. Now the house is always comfortably warm and also quiet, which shows how well insulated the property is since the windows were installed.”
One example is a traditional farmhouse in Nottinghamshire which has undergone a large scale renovation to blend the old with the new. The homeowners faced problems with the original timber windows which needed regular maintenance and repainting – a huge job to undertake on a house with more than 40 window apertures.
The Evolve VS range is available in a range of colours and woodgrains including Cherrywood and Chartwell Green, all available with dual colour white interior, Astragal or Georgian bars, and a variety of hardware choices including white, gold and chrome.
Rachael Radcliffe, Business Development Manager at VEKA Group said: “We've been working closely with Watergate over the past year-and-a-half in trying to achieve the PAS1188 so we are very proud to have been a part of them obtaining this worthy certification.
The first month of its new financial year has been another record breaker for Conservatory Outlet Limited, reporting its June 2017 sales figure up an impressive 5% on the previous record.
“The PAS1188 standard was updated in 2014 with even more stringent guidelines and particular attention being paid to the amount of leakage that would be deemed acceptable for any products requesting the certification, so to hold this official safety standard means our clients can share our absolute confidence in this product.”
We’re looking forward to building on this strong start through the rest of the financial year and raising the company to new heights, including more new showrooms, product launches and additional marketing support.
The company also remains firmly focused on achieving its £20m turnover goal by 2018, and on securing full UK coverage by actively seeking new retail partners in areas of the UK untapped by its network, including Essex, Cornwall and South Wales.

“As the demand from homeowners for safe and effective flood-resistant products increases it has become more and more pertinent for companies to really step up to the challenge. Watergate has done just that. ”
The Yorkshire-based fabricator is crediting its best ever month to the growth of its retail network members, with four new showroom openings over the past six months.
Watergate's Sales Manager Gerard Hiscock said: “Having previously gained PAS1188 for our PVC panel doors, to now have the same accreditation for the composite flood door is a testament to the hard work of all involved. During research, we worked extensively with authorities at both a local and national level, to make sure we were bringing something to the market that homeowners, especially those most at risk from rising water levels, could really put their trust in.
With more than 6000 frames, 200 roofs and 350 composite doors processed in June, it has been a very busy period for the fabricator and its 24-strong retail network.
in June without compromising on quality. In true Yorkshire style, we celebrated with a fish and chip lunch for all our staff on Monday 24th July as a small token of our appreciation for all their hard work.”
MD Michael Giscombe explains: “The network is truly alive with activity at the moment. We've never been so busy in terms of both orders and in supporting new and exciting growth initiatives from around the network.
The company is on the cusp of launching two new products, ensuring its retail network are amongst the first to market with the latest innovations.
I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone within the network for their continued support; and to our fabulous staff for their commitment and dedication in processing the overwhelming quantity of orders
