Handrail Creations Extends National Reach with FSC Certification
Bespoke handrail designers and manufacturers, Handrail Creations has announced this week that the company is now FSC™ Certified.
The FSC certification further enhances the Handrail Creations commitment to sustainability. It will also support future growth ambitions by ensuring compliance for larger commercial projects stipulating FSC certified materials.
Kenny MacFarlane, Co-Founder of Handrail Creations said, “Sustainability is more than just a buzzword for Handrail Creations. This certification demonstrates our willingness not only to meet our customers’ specifications, but also our commitment to responsibly source materials . ”
The majority of projects within the education sector and city regeneration require FSC timber products and suppliers as part of an ongoing government drive towards using more sustainable materials. Handrail Creations can now bid for these projects, and have just been awarded a contract to supply and purpose made handrails to the Houses of Parliament - in FSC certified European oak. This prestigious project win is an impressive achievement for the company and sets the bar for future ventures armed with the FSC certification. This follows hot on the heels of a contract to supply and install 800 metres of bespoke FSC certified handrails to the Kingsgate project in London.
For almost twenty years, FSC has been the most widely recognized global certification system for responsible timber sourcing. Research has also shown that businesses with a FSC certification enjoy a range of other benefits including improved market access, increased client base and an enhanced public image – all of which Handrail Creations expect in the near future.
Mr MacFarlane added, “Becoming certified was a natural step. It’s a win-win situation. Obviously we want to protect the environment as our business depends on it, and sustainability is of increasing importance. Secondly, it opens the doors to many opportunities which would not be available to us if we were not certified.”
