We are very proud to announce we have recently become a member of the British Blind and Shutter Association. Since introducing plantation shutters into our product range just over 2 years ago, we have worked with several homeowners in and around Wiltshire to install beautiful window shutters into their living space, all of which have been extremely happy and provided 5-star feedback.

With this, we can now provide our future customers even further assurance of the highest possible standards of workmanship, service, product, and fair trading, as a member of the BBSA.

Follow our short blog to find out exactly how you can benefit from choosing a BBSA member to install your internal shutters.

What is the BBSA?

The British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) is the UK’s ONLY trade association for companies which design, manufacture, survey, install or repair blinds, shutters, and awnings.

The association ensures high standards of product, service, and fair trading throughout the trade. Each member must adhere to a code of practice which is kept updated with changes to standards, requirements, and best practice via regular communications.

What are the benefits of using a BBSA member?

Before joining the BBSA, prospective members must undergo a strict vetting procedure to earn the BBSA’s accreditation. The strict vetting process means that only companies operating to the highest standards of quality and workmanship are accepted, thus giving homeowners the ultimate peace of mind when they choose a BBSA member to carry out work in their home.

Customers can trust BBSA members as they:

  • Are up to date with regulations.

BBSA members must follow the very latest industry guidance, safety advice and customer regulations, provided by leading industry experts.

  • Abide by strict code of conduct.

BBSA members must abide by a code of practice designed to ensure high standards.

  • Are fully insured.

BBSA members must be VAT registered and have insurance.

  • Are committed to training.

BBSA members are required to undertake health and safety, product related and business training.

  • Are committed to child safety.

BBSA members receive regular updates on window blind and shutter safety and news on this vital area of compliance for the industry.

  • Have access to free mediation service.

In the unlikely event a customer is unable to resolve a dispute with a member, the BBSA offer a free mediation service, where customers can request the BBSA to investigate.
