Sheerline Receives Coveted National Fenestration Awards for People and Products

The team at Secured by Design (SBD) member company Sheerline are celebrating after winning two coveted awards at this year’s National Fenestration Awards (NFAs), which took place on Saturday 28th October at Doncaster Racecourse. It was an extra special evening as the awards celebrated their ten-year anniversary.

First, Sheerline’s SBD accredited Prestige Lift & Slide Patio was awarded the title of New Product of the Year. This coveted award is particularly rewarding for Adrian Redshaw, Design Director, and the rest of the research and development team, as it completes the Prestige range for now, and has already become a firm favourite with Sheerline customers.

It’s also a great achievement as competition was fierce within the category, with ten other products competing. For the latest addition to the Prestige range to have stood out is a testament to the work that goes into Sheerline’s research and development, product development, manufacture, and sales and marketing.

The Prestige Lift & Slide Patio recently achieved Secured by Design accreditation, helped by its in-built security features which include high security interlocks designed to prevent unwanted intruders from entering the property.

The range is delivered with consistent design options that give homeowners the ability to achieve consistency throughout their home, and are based on Sheerline’s patented corner assembly method with innovative Thermlock® thermal breaks.

The second award Sheerline picked up recognised the outstanding leadership of CEO Roger Hartshorn as he was named MD/Director of the Year. A fantastic result, particularly as 16 other, well regarded industry figures were also up for the title.

It’s an even better result when considering Roger was awarded a lifetime achievement award last year for the positive impact he’s had on the fenestration industry. To be recognised by his peers, fabricators and installers two years in a row is a significant achievement.

It reflects what Roger has shown time and time again; that with the right knowledge and investment in both people and equipment, beautiful products that work well, that are technically engineered and innovative, will succeed. There is clearly a demand for beautiful aluminium windows and doors that go above and beyond what everyone expects.

Sheerline NFA Awards

Roger Hartshorn, Sheerline CEO, said: “We’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the team behind the NFAs – it’s been another tremendous success, and it truly is one of the highlights of the fenestration awards calendar. To see Sheerline recognised and celebrated among our peers and friends is fantastic. Of course, it’s also hugely rewarding to call another one of our products award-winning.

“We deliberately work to ensure our products are the best, not just for homeowners, but for installers and fabricators too. Last year it was a pleasant surprise to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award – it’s not something that happens every day – and being named Director of the Year is another great win for Sheerline and shows we still have more to give,” he added.

Alfie Hosker, Secured by Design, applauded the team on their awards: “A big congratulations to Sheerline for winning two prestigious National Fenestration Awards for People and Products. It is particularly pleasing to see their Prestige Lift & Slide Patio door system obtain the product award. It is one of several systems which have achieved Police Preferred Specification and are used by several of our SBD member fabricator companies to produce 3rd party UKAS PAS 24 doors and windows. I must also congratulate Roger Hartshorn who was named MD/Director of the Year - a great achievement.”
