Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 4th January 2021, we would like to confirm some changes to our normal operating procedures.
Until further notice our showrooms will be closed in line with the guidelines.
As we are within the construction industry, we will continue to provide a glass and glazing service on a pre order and collect only basis, either through our website or over the phone.
As of Wednesday 6th January all on site surveys and installations will progress as normal whilst adhering to the latest COVID 19 guidelines. We are here to answer any calls or queries during normal business opening hours

GGF Launches Safe Guide for Homeowners
The GGF is pleased to announce the launch of a much needed consumer publication titled, “The Safe Guide for Homeowners - employing a glazing company
to improve your home during the COVID-19 crisis”.
This Safe Guide has been produced to reassure homeowners that their safety is paramount when using a GGF Member company. The Safe Guide emphasizes that any work being undertaken must consider, as a priority, the Government and Public Health England guidance. The Safe Guide also includes the many reasonable safety measures that must be taken by home improvement companies when working in people’s homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
John Agnew, GGF Managing Director commented, “In these difficult times, it is important the GGF supports its Members more than ever to ensure that any work undertaken is done safely and in line with the latest Government guidance. I advise all home improvement Members, to provide their customers and potential customers with this new Safe Guide to offer them greater reassurance, when essential work is being carried out in their home during this pandemic.”
Due to the likelihood of change in the Government guidance and legislation during the COVID-19 crisis, this Safe Guide for Homeowners will be in digital format only and will be available for download from both GGF websites – the trade site www.ggf.org.uk and the GGF’s consumer advice site www.myglazing.com.
The GGF is aiming to launch a “Safe Guide for Tradespeople in Domestic properties” next week to complement this new homeowner guide.
