International specialist friction stay manufacturer and supplier, Cotswold Architectural Products, was once again the preferred supplier for a prestigious project outside of the UK.
In its thirty year history Cotswold has been involved in a number of developments around the world.
For its latest, the Cheltenham based manufacturer supplied the hardware for the construction of an office and apartment complex in Seoul, which is the capital of South Korea and one of the latest and most densely populated cities on the planet.
The skyscraper building, which is named SK Leader’s view, incorporated 1670 pairs of heavy duty friction stays – from Cotswold’s HD22R and HD102 range – in to 797mm by 1170mm top-hung windows.
Iain Morgan, who is Cotswold’s Managing Director comments: “We’re no strangers to supplying projects of this magnitude but still, every time we’re involved in one it is exciting to be so.
“Seoul is a breath-taking mega-city and this is a development of office space and apartments which is particularly eye-catching. It was a pleasure to be involved with and we’re naturally pleased that the architects and developers turned to us for this element of the project.”
A spokesperson for Locus Holdings, who were the architects and developers of the office complex, said that Cotswold won the prestigious contract due to its reputation for quality, customer and technical service and world-leading products.
Cotswold’s heavy duty friction stays were also chosen because of the requirement that only foreign hardware be used in the development.
Carine Geoffroy, who is Cotswold’s Export Sales Manager comments: “Cotswold is the world’s number one specialist friction stay manufacturer and we offer years of British manufacturing experience, top-quality products and a commitment and energy to create hardware solutions that meet the demands of high-profile developments all over the world.”
Cotswold has been in business for over thirty years and regularly creates bespoke solutions for fabricators across the UK, including some of biggest names such as Polyframe and Safestyle.
