Monday 29th October to Friday 2nd November was Winners Week for the 2018 National Fenestration Awards campaign and was once again a highlight of the year for the industry.
After 6 weeks of hard voting, superb campaigns by many finalists pushing for the industry for their votes, and indeed thousands of all important votes cast by all members of the fenestration community, these are the #NFA18 winners in all 24 categories, with two additional Heart Of The Industry hand picked awards:

That’s 25 categories in total, with 23 different winners. This year’s campaign has been the most extensive, most inclusive and most diverse. Although many companies were nominated in quite a few categories, the end results have produced an incredibly diverse group of winners.
The voting this year has also been very close, perhaps the closest it has ever been. The 2018 campaign produced an incredible three categories with joint winners, with the majority of categories only being decided by a handful of votes. Even in the final hours category leaders were changing positions.
Winners Week was also another successful venture on social media. Winners Week is the method in which the NFA winners are announced. Beginning on a Monday, a batch of winners are announced on social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook. The general spirit of those who won, came second and third was very positive indeed, and showed the industry in a light than is not often seen outside the industry.
All winners have now been notified by email and have their winners logos which will be seen on social media, printed marketing, vans, email signatures and any other place winners feel proud to display them!
Preparations for the #NFA18 winners event are already underway, with firm dates, location and marketing opportunities set to be announced soon.
The NFA team would like to thank main sponsors: Kolorseal, GQA Qualifications, Masterframe, Sysneal, FrameXpress, Bystronic Glass/HEGLA and Morley Glass for their backing and support during the course of the campaign. Thanks also go to data providers Windowbase, category sponsors Brisant Secure, GQA Qualifications and Edgetech, as well as site sponsors Solidor.
The NFA team would also like to say a massive thank you to all those who nominated, voted, tweeted, retweeted, posted on Facebook and spread the NFA message this year. Without the input from the industry during the various stages of this campaign these awards would fail to work.
