Manchester-based UAP, the specialist in locks and hardware for doors and windows, has joined the National Fenestration Awards as a media sponsor.

Established in 1996, UAP has more than 3,000 product lines and is one of the largest hardware companies in the UK fenestration market. The company has grown rapidly in recent years and now operates across seven brands: UAP Fullex, UAP Locking Systems, UAP Intelligent Hardware, UAP Firemongery, UAP TradeLocks, UAP Security Hardware, and online specialist X-Fort.

Speaking about its sponsorship, UAP’s CEO David Jennings said: “It’s great to be joining the National Fenestration Awards in its tenth anniversary year. Over the last decade, the awards have gone from strength to strength, demonstrating innovation and success throughout the fenestration industry. We’re looking forward to showing our support and recognising the achievements of companies and people working across the sector.”

A representative from the National Fenestration Awards commented: “Having UAP on board is great news and further contributes to the growth of the awards this year. UAP is an impressive company and we’re delighted to be working with them in this special year!”

Both the finalists and winners of the National Fenestration Awards are determined by nominations and votes from individuals working in the fenestration industry. This process has seen UAP’s products and people shortlisted in five categories this year.

Voting for the winners of the 2023 National Fenestration Awards is now open, with anyone working in the UK fenestration sector able to participate. The closing date for voting is September 29th, with winners being announced on October 28th at a sparkling awards presentation at the prestigious Doncaster Racecourse.
