Specialist international friction-stay manufacturer and hardware supplier Cotswold Architectural Products is celebrating its products being specified in five major residential and commercial projects, in quick succession, in Malaysia.

The Cheltenham based manufacturer’s hardware was specified for the construction of a range of high profile projects that included St Regis Hotel in the capital Kuala Lumpur; the building of a government department for the Ministry of Transport and a number of high-end residential properties, one of which was 58 storey’s high.

The projects are scheduled to be completed in 2014 and 2015.

Cotswold’s HDA 18”, Telescopic Restrictor 8” and the FA 103 Restrictor Arms will be incorporated within the buildings; with 5894 stays and arms expected to be used altogether.

Malaysia has a population of over 30 million and a relatively open and prosperous economy.

Architects and developers selected Cotswold’s products due to the quality of steel, service and the company’s reputation for producing world leading hardware.

Cotswold is one of the few companies to also offer such a wide range restrictor arms. This type of product is becoming more popular in Malaysia and other developing economies due to the building of hotels and office and residential complexes where restricting the opening of windows is important to ensuring user safety.
