Covid-19 - Prevention Is Better For Sure

Victorian Sliders says investing in a £15,000 Covid prevention system is better than closing during lockdown 2, as the firm continues to deliver sash windows across the UK.

The company has been able to operate as normal since the system passed a recent safety check by the local authority with flying colours. The system includes heat sensor cameras, facial recognition cameras and a QR scanner questionnaire.


 “Companies that sit within the construction and manufacturing industries have been given the green light by the government to trade as normal as long as it’s in a Covid-secure manner - so for us it’s very much business as usual.”

Group Managing Director, Victorian Sliders


Safety first

“Ultimately, the safety of our staff, customers, suppliers and partners is our number one priority," says Victorian Sliders' Jones. "We have invested heavily in this area to ensure we protect everyone whilst continuing to offer the same level of service that our customers have come to expect.”



For anyone that visits the Victorian Sliders HQ, the Covid-secure measures are easy to spot. The firm has set up a large marquee outside the factory where all employees and visitors must undergo several checks before they are allowed into the main building. This includes an automated temperature check, facial recognition for all employees, and a comprehensive Covid-19 questionnaire for everyone. Anyone who fails to meet the required criteria are instructed not to come into work and to seek assistance from the company’s HR department. The same temperature check is also repeated at the end of the day.

Andy Jones concludes: “This latest lockdown presents us with a new challenge but here at Victorian Sliders we are doing everything in our power to meet the strong market demand and support our customers with their sash window projects. We wish all our customers and the wider industry the very best during this time and hope everyone stays safe.”
