NE & C Windows & Doors has secured exclusive access to products and training after joining Reynaers Aluminium Fire Safety Partners Scheme.

The Tyne and Wear based company joins a select group of members to qualify for the initiative which was launched in conjunction with Certifire and FIRAS.

The scheme requires fabricators and installers to achieve stringent first safety standards, which then allows access to the Reynaers’ range of fire-resistant aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling. This, in turn, offers assurance to customers and building occupants that fire safety requirements in product performance and installation have been met.


 “Glazing is a crucial consideration for fire safety in modern buildings and one that is just as important as the aesthetics of the system installed.”

– John McComb 

Technical director, Reynaers


Right training

“Through our scheme, we also ensure that our partners are equipped with the right training to successfully fabricate and install our products,” continues Reynaers’ McComb. “Partnering with Certifire and FIRAS means that our Fire Safety Partners Scheme is of the highest integrity.”

To apply, fabricators and installers must prove they are accredited by independent fire safety bodies Certifire or FIRAS, respectively, have been trading for at least a year and demonstrate a history of supplying fire safety products.

 As the certification for fabricators, Certifire assures performance, quality, reliability, and traceability of products and systems, while FIRAS endorses the competency of installers to fit and maintain systems to the required safety standards.
