Starting the New Year off with a bang, the National Fenestration Awards can announced that current #NFA16 Winners Event sponsors Clayton Glass and Prefix Systems are to become the joint sponsors of the popular Cool Wall competition for 2017 and 2018. Throwing their support behind the NFAs for another two years.

The NFA Cool Wall is a monthly competition where companies can upload their installed work for the industry to then vote on to decide a winner. There are 11 monthly competitions, culminating in the Wall of Winners competition where the industry votes to decide on the Coolest installation of the year based on the 11 monthly Cool Wall winners. The Wall of Winners champion receives two free tickets to the campaign’s exciting Winners Event, where they will be treated to a thrilling day of racing cars at Oulton Park race track, attending a superb evening event where they will pick up their winners trophy and enjoy a free bar, great entertainment and even better company. Not a bad potential return for a free to enter competition!

Sue Davenport, Marketing Director of outgoing Cool Wall sponsors Liniar, had this to say of their time with the Cool Wall competition:

We’re proud to have been associated with the NFA Cool Wall as its first major sponsor. It’s a fantastic way for installers to showcase the work they carry out, and we’ve certainly seen some worthy winners since it began. Although we felt it was time to hand over the Cool Wall reins after two years, we’ll continue to encourage Liniar installers to enter each month to raise their profile within the industry.

Jason Grafton-Holt, Director of the National Fenestration Awards added:

It’s been great to have had Liniar on board as the first major Cool Wall sponsor. Their support and backing has ensured that the Cool Wall has not only grown an attracted work of the highest class, but has also inspired other monthly installation competitions throughout the industry. I want to thank Sue and Liniar for their support of the Cool Wall over the past two years and of course will welcome their involvement and participation in #NFA17!

Speaking of their brand new co-sponsorship of the Cool Wall, Ryan Green, Managing Director of Clayton Glass and Romag said:

What better way to highlight the achievements of our industry, than to help showcase those truly stand out projects, of which we can all be proud. We’re delighted to help do this and to encourage installers to use the pioneering products that we and others create in increasingly innovative ways

Adding to Ryan’s remarks, Chris Cooke, Director at Prefix Systems said:

Liniar have done a great job of promoting the Cool Wall and we are proud to be taking up the reigns for the next two years. The Cool wall is a great portal to allow businesses in our industry to ‘show off’ some of the fantastic work they have undertaken for clients. So many well thought out and designed traditional, cutting edge or just outright quirky projects are being installed each week in our sector that quietly go unpublicised, and this shouldn’t be the case. The Cool Wall is the answer.

The 2017 National Fenestration Awards campaign is now live, including the monthly Cool Wall competition. It is totally free to participate and is open to all those who work in UK fenestration.
