Having the flexibility and expertise to meet specific customer requirements helps HBS Steel Doors and Fabrications stand out in the marketplace
Renewing SBD member company HBS Steel Doors and Fabrications Ltd, a leading UK manufacturer of robust steel doors, declares proudly it can go from site survey and design through to build and installation in just 3-4 weeks.
Bearing in mind that includes tailor-making the doors to the size, style, colour and other detailed specification required by the client, that’s a big promise. But as their clients have found, HBS delivers within that timescale – and even less when required.
For example, a housing association in Nottingham wanted 22 doorsets but only on the condition that the doors would be operational on site in just two weeks. HBS set up a project team run by operational personnel to work with core suppliers and to oversee the survey, design, manufacture and installation within the agreed schedule. The client stated that HBS had surpassed even their demanding requirements.
In another challenging example, HBS met a Midlands based client’s requirements to design and engineer three, five metre high steel security communal doorsets provided that the old doors were replaced with the new ones on the same day in order to maintain the security and integrity of the entrances. The client was so impressed by the impressive look of the installation on the available budget, that it is working with HBS Steel Doors to have new secure communal door entrances at several of its properties.
Since establishing in 2010, HBS Steel Doors, of Wigan, Lancashire, has amassed an extensive in-house capability and skill set ranging from project management and design technology through to manufacturing and installation to deliver a one-stop-shop.
Company Director, Nicki Woods said: “We are a customer led organisation committed to creating tailor made designs to suit the client’s needs, our flexible approach is dedicated to diversity and innovation. We want to stand out in the marketplace and are prepared to invest heavily in our staff, processes and manufacture to help us expand into emerging markets and manufacture doors that meet most designs.
“We have built an excellent reputation in the social housing sector and are now building relationships in the construction industry to make new clients aware of our work ethic, quality workmanship and commitment to excellent customer service.”
HBS Steel Doors is recognised as one of the leading designers and manufacturers in the UK of high quality, custom-built, steel doorsets including robust security doors, communal entrance doors and doors for hospitals, schools and universities.
In response to client demand, HBS Steel Doors has expanded its product range to include storage hubs, cycle shelters, bin stores and utility boxes to meet the needs of local authorities and to deter crime like theft and vandalism.
It has a range of styles accredited by Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, which acts on behalf of the Police Service around the UK to accredit products that have the capability to deter and reduce crime.
SBD accreditation has been awarded to the company’s HBS001-100 and HBS001-200 steel security doorset ranges, which have been certified to PAS 24:2016 security performance to offer a level of security suitable for dwellings and other buildings exposed to comparable risk.
Hazel Goss, Development Officer, Secured by Design, commented: “It was a pleasure renewing contacts with HBS Steel Doors and Fabrications who have been valuable members since 2013, and I am looking forward to working alongside them for many more years to come.”
