Congratulations to Luke who celebrates 25 years at Twinfix this month!

“I have loved my time here at Twinfix, so here’s to the next 25 years”

Luke is one of the designers here at Twinfix and one of the original members of the Twinfix family. He joined the company in February 1994 when our offices were at Gawsworth court and we were a small team of 12.

Over the last 25 years, Luke has seen many changes at Twinfix, from relocating to Cavendish Place, growth of our fantastic team and the launch of our innovative Georgian wired polycarbonate to name just a few. We thank you for all your hard-work and dedication and look forward to continuing our journey together.

Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme

RISQSTwinfix is delighted to announce we have passed a recent Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit with the highest mark available – a 5 star rating!

The RISQS audit is an annual audit that must be successfully completed to allow us to work on the Network Rail Infrastructure. It is also a critical requirement for a number of our clients, and therefore imperative that we demonstrate conformity to the rail industry’s health and safety, quality and environmental practices.

Twinfix are approved to undertake the design, manufacture & installation of specialist roofing systems and to sponsor our team’s PTS training for survey and rail works.

Case Study – Manchester Schools

We are delighted to have been involved in a recent project that saw ISG deliver a phased programme of new and refurbished primary school facilities across Greater Manchester. The aim of the project was to meet demands of the increasing student population across the region.

Working alongside Premier Modular, we designed, manufactured and installed 17 canopies at 7 schools in the city. Twinfix originally designed and installed four canopies at St Margaret’s Primary School, which led to us being invited back to assist with phase 2 of the project and installing canopies at a further six sites, including Lily Lane Primary School, Moston; Webster Primary School, Moss Side; Ringway Primary School, Wythenshawe and Beaver Road Primary School, Didsbury.

All our canopies hold the CE mark of safety, were installed by our team of DBS checked installers and are manufactured close by at our factory in Warrington. The roofs comprise of our Multi-Link-Panels NF, glazed with tough 25mm clear multiwall polycarbonate. These panels are Non-Fragile to the ACR[M]001:2014 drop test. The aluminium frames were powder coated to match the school exteriors. Using aluminium for the framework is our material of choice as it is such a versatile product. It can be formed into many shapes, it is relatively light in weight – making it easier and safer to handle and install.

Aluminium is a great choice for a school canopy as it doesn’t rust in use and will stand up to the test of time – and children!
