Based in Warrington, Twinfix are proud to be a high quality, safety focused, British manufacturer and installer of roof glazing and canopies.
Established in the late 1980’s, Twinfix was the first company in Europe to develop a range of glazing bars and fixing accessories specifically designed for installing polycarbonate. A family business, owned and led by Graham Kench, the company is now managed by Graham’s daughters Vicky Evans and Sarah Kench, together with fellow directors Dan Smith and Paul Greenfield. Growing from its original roots as polycarbonate and glazing bar suppliers, today Twinfix offers a full range of glazing products from the original glazing bar products to the non-fragile Multi-Link-Panel which is often incorporated in to a wide range of canopies and shelters. Working across many sectors, from rail to education and retail, Twinfix offers a full service from initial enquiry and advice on projects, to design, manufacture and install.
Whether you are a school, architect, council or main contractor we can assist you with your roof glazing and canopy requirements. We are happy to visit and talk you though what we can offer. We have a team of experienced sales people and technical engineers to help you. With lots of different options for colour, size and style we can offer you a roof glazing or canopy solution to suit your requirements.
For architects and specifiers we have NBS specifications and our recently completed BIM models will help ensure you have the correct details to assist with your requirements.
We have a team of designers who are experts in roof glazing and canopies. As part of our offering we will provide full design and structural calculations for most of our canopies and roof glazing. We can also provide 3D visualisations to help you see how your canopy or shelter will look.
Our brilliant design team has over 30 years’ experience in glazing bar development and roof glazing innovation, producing many unique products from our Georgian wired effect polycarbonate (a solid polycarbonate that looks just like Georgian wired glass), to our thermally broken Multi-Link-Panel.
We have a new 3D printer that allows us to continually develop our product, testing new bar shapes and sections.
Manufacture and Fabricate
We are proud to be a British manufacturer. From our factory in Warrington we produce bespoke canopies and glazing systems. Our cutting edge facilities include multiple CNC saws, CNC profile machining, a large capacity notching saw, an automatic vertical panel saw, a box section roller, a 4mtr 100 tonne pressbrake and guillotine and 6 modern aluminium TIG and MIG welding machines. We invest in our machines to help us to safely and efficiently manufacture our product.
All of our work is in aluminium which is an excellent material, known for its light weight and high quality look and feel. In order to ensure a swift and accurate installation on site we also dry assemble all of our canopies in our warehouse to ensure that they fit together on site.
All our canopy structures are UKCA marked.
We offer an installation service for many of our products. As part of our service our experienced in house team will ensure your installation is completed to a high and safe standard. All of our operatives are CSCS and our site supervisors are SSSTS (Site Safety Supervisory Training Scheme) qualified. Our design team will produce site specific risk and method statements to ensure a safe method of work has been defined. Installation teams are PASMA and IPAF trained for safe use of appropriate access equipment. Supervisors are First Aid qualified.
Using our own install teams assures you have experienced handlers of Twinfix products who are trained in working at height and manual handling. They hold current DBS checks and are experienced at working in many environments. We especially do a great deal of work within the education sector and our teams understand the issues that can be present whilst installing in a working school. Our teams pride themselves in doing a high quality job to best showcase our high quality product range.
At Twinfix we are continually looking to the future, working to improve our current products and developing further offerings for the roofing and canopy arena. As accredited CHAS contractors and a member of Constructionline, Link-Up and NARM we are committed to health & safety and to working in an environmentally responsible manner.
