The National Fenestration Awards turn 10 years old in 2023 and they want to celebrate in style starting with an expertly designed new logo.

Founded in 2013 by Jason Grafton-Holt, in response to a plethora of support for an independent and all-inclusive event, the National Fenestration Awards aims to recognise all facets of the UK fenestration industry by inviting everyone to nominate and vote on who they think deserves recognition. Now, in their tenth year, it’s time to commemorate their vast achievement with a celebratory new logo! 

There are no judges, no panels and no applications. The outcome of the competition is decided entirely by industry participation. All members of the fenestration industry get to submit nominations for each category which then get narrowed down to shortlists based on the number of nominations. The industry can then vote on those shortlists to decide the overall winner.

In 2013 their first year, they saw wins from big names in the industry for example VEKA being crowned PVC champions and Solidor being awarded composite door company, they also had a 2013 cool wall award showing some impressive installations.

Jason Grafton-Holt commented after the first year’s awards “The National Fenestration Awards will always be all-inclusive of the industry and support it. This project is not just about winners and prizes – it’s a long-term project to support the industry, get behind it, see changes happen for the better and bring a much-needed “voice” to our industry.”

2014 saw some up-and-coming businesses take home an award like Truemans taking home the trade counter award and they held their first
ever winners’ event – a car racing extravaganza featuring land rovers and Caterham’s at Oulton Park in Cheshire.

Lee Clarke, now company director on the day “From day one, it had always been the aim of the NFAs to be able to celebrate winners at a physical event. So this Thursday marked an important step for the awards, and for those attending and to receive their awards.”The 2015 NFA awards crowned 16 winners with timber company going to Glyngary Joinery with another racing day taking place including Toyota GT 86 rally cars followed by an awards presentation at the Foggarty Moss Suite, again at Oulton Park.

2016’s winner’s event was also a car racing day with entertainment from an amazing live band after 17 awards were given our including a win for Vista Panels for composite/panelled doors. Jason commented “One of the key themes of the winners this year has been the high percentage of first time winners in the NFAs. We see this as a result of increasing market penetration the awards now have the major awareness it garners”,
