Solar Norvik & Solar Calibre Doors join Secured by Design

Solar Norvik and Solar Calibre Doors are the latest companies to join Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Solar Windows is a highly respected commercial manufacturer and installer of PVCU windows and doors, with a highly successful history dating back over 28 years in the Commercial Sector. The Directors and Senior Management team of Solar Windows Ltd and also those shared with Interframe South West Ltd, have set up Solar Calibre Ltd and Solar Norvik Ltd as associated businesses.

Both Solar Calibre and Solar Norvik will operate from the Huthwaite site that is shared with Profine UK. This will be a major boost for the local labour market which has been impacted by the redundancy of several hundred former workers at the site. It will also help expand the reach of Solar Windows from Caerphilly, Wales into the Midlands and Northern Counties.

Speaking for Solar Norvik & Solar Calibre Doors, Carl Lewis, Managing Director of Solar Windows and the two new business entities commented: “This is a significant opportunity for us to spread our reach into the middle of the UK and to expand our operations into the new build sector under the Norvik brand. We’ve already got significant experience in the fire door sector and so the Warden Fire Door brand will help us accelerate our growth in this sector, while the Craftsmen and GRP doors will support our move into selected segments of the trade market.

He continued: ‘We have a partnership agreement in place with Profine UK that will realise benefits for both parties, which the Solar team and I are excited about realising this potential in the coming years”.

SBD Technical Officer Alfie Hosker said: “I am delighted that both companies have become members of Secured by Design with their range of Police Preferred Specification doors and windows across a range of materials. I look forward to a successful journey over the coming years and offer them a warm welcome”.
