This enables us to self-certify compliance under the Building Regulations without the needing separate assessment from Building Control.

All of our lead on site operatives including our surveyors are also required to pass an MTC test which is a theory and practical training program set up by FENSA. If nothing else FENSA protects you from cowboy trades and ensures you that you are getting quality tradesman.

The CPA guarantee is invaluable protection in the unlikely event we went bankrupt or were liquidated and forced to cease trading. This guarantee is valid for 10 years, the form you receive with your invoice is to be completed and returned within 21 days to be valid. We want our customers to be safe for the future so please ensure you send this back.
Each of our lead installers carry their own public liability insurance covering themselves and the other installer in their team. HBD Systems also have Employers and Public liability insurance covering more than £10,000,000. This allows us to take on work both big and small knowing we are fully insured.
Our friends at Origin have awarded us their gold trader award for all of our hard work, great sales, service and quality. As accredited installers our fitters have undertaken training to learn about the safe and secure installation of Origin Bifold doors. These skills have then been passed throughout the teams, after all…sharing is caring, and we care a lot about our teams.
We have also been awarded Origin’s best showroom award for our state of the art Hertfordshire base. Here you can pop in whenever you want and view all of our products including the full Origin window, door and blinds ranges.
Our former Herts Bifold doors won the Best website in 2015!! It was praised for its mountains of information, smooth navigation and received top marks for being user friendly.
