Uni-Blinds ® integral blind manufacturer Morley Glass has triumphed at the 2021 National Fenestration Awards ( NFAs ) by picking up awards in five categories .
The company was once again crowned the industry ’ s best ‘ Integral Blind Company ’ and named the winner in the ‘ New Product ’ category for its latest exclusive integrated blind innovations , the symmetrical SV + sliding venetian blind system and the pleated blackout blind . Like all Uni- Blinds , these new products are manufactured using only ScreenLine ® blind systems to offer high quality , great visual appeal and reliable long term performance
in carefully tailored shading and privacy solutions .
Morley Glass was also recognised by the industry for the way it has used video over the last 12 months , both in its own marketing and to support window and door installers large and small by helping them create virtual showroom tours . These videos proved invaluable during the pandemic lockdown periods , and they continue to be an incredibly useful asset to installers as homeowners and developers research new products and services online at the early stage of their search .
In addition to these three corporate awards , one member of the Morley Glass team was a double
award winner too , reflecting the outstanding contribution she has made to the company ’ s success . Sales adviser and marketing coordinator Charlotte Gilbert , who has become an integral part of the team since joining just 15 months ago , was presented with awards for ‘ Social Networker ’ and ‘ Young Person ’.
Ian Short , MD of Morley Glass said : “ I ’ m absolutely thrilled that we ’ ve won three 2021 NFA awards for the company , and over the moon for Charlotte for her well-deserved individual awards . A big thank you to everyone who voted for Morley Glass and who took time to get involved with the NFAs in whatever capacity they chose to – as
a sponsor , nominee , voter or attendee .
“ In what has been another pandemic-affected year , Lee Clarke and the NFA team deserve a lot of credit for successfully delivering the NFA awards
programme . It is really important for the industry to get the chance to get together in person to celebrate the very best in our sector and we are already looking forward to the 2022 programme .”
Morley Glass is the leading manufacturer of integral blinds in the UK door and window industry through its Uni-Blinds branded range . Its 50,000 sq . ft state-of-the-art factory in Leeds is the world ’ s largest production facility of its kind for Screenline blind systems , from which it serves installers across the UK with the most competitive lead times and complimentary delivery .
