Our system’s primary purpose is to protect buildings against fire, ballistic or blast threats. This requires us to design, fabricate and where required, install to the highest standards.
That process starts with design, and Chris Peters is our Chief Design Manager.
He’s been with us for ten years and initially studied engineering at Wiltshire College, Chippenham.
He started his working career in hands-on roles. This helped him form a good understanding of the industry and manufacturing techniques.
We have a small but effective design team, and Chris is responsible for ensuring that every design project goes smoothly. That means making sure that every project is designed to be within the requisite test certification.
As building design pushes boundaries further, this also applies to our certification, with each project presenting different challenges.
On the most part, our customers come to us with fairly standard requirements, where the design element is relatively straightforward.
But we also have the capacity to design systems that are completely out of the ordinary but which still comply with certification.
That’s where Chris and his team’s experience and expertise comes in.
Working with 2D and 3D Cad software, the team aim to design the most complex of commissions.
It’s that capacity for the unusual that Southern Steel Windows also recently came to us.
We were able to design and fabricate a system to create the finished look they wanted, and which could be rolled into the radius required.
It’s because of this attention to detail and expert knowledge, that Southern Steel Windows have been a regular customer of Wrightstyle’s for many years.
Good design doesn’t just happen – creating an intricate design, and making it safe within test limitations, requires expert knowledge and experience.
Chris and his team have this and are therefore able to achieve ambitious designs on a daily basis.
It’s also why we have so many customers return to us when they require technically advanced glazing systems.
