Fit Show Blog


The Fabricator Installer Trade Show takes place in the Teleford International Centre between the 10th – 12th of June 2014.

Grady Joinery is one of the largest and most versatile suppliers of high-end windows and doors operating in the UK and Ireland, with a large, established customer base that includes many of the market’s best-known house builders. Now, with its inaugural showing at The FIT Show, Grady is introducing its high quality triple glazed lift & slide, bi folding doors and double rebated composite entrance doors to UK home improvement installers for the first time. The display will also include the Grady Heritage range of wooden casement and box sash windows, which are noted for their exceptional quality.

Committed to offering products that are distinctive, high performing and manufactured to the highest quality, Grady will be showing products designed and manufactured to provide pro-active installers with a range of windows and doors that will appeal to the owners of upmarket homes.

The company’s Lift & Slide door for example has been developed as a solution for projects that demand the highest levels of sophisticated aesthetics and thermal and weathering performance. The frame easily accommodates glass that has a u-value as low as 0.5 W/m2K. This German designed the door will be available triple glazed in panel sizes up to 3m x 3m. Hardware offers effortless operation combined with the highest security standards available.

Grady Joinery’s Composite Residential Doors also offer a solution designed to allow expansion into high-margin sales opportunities. The double rebate 70mm doors are supplied with perfectly matched hardwood or high quality foiled PVC-U outer frames with high quality triple glazed cassettes. These may be combined to provide unique and luxurious entrances that are also highly secure, energy efficient and durable.

Also part of Grady Joinery’s FIT Show display will be bi folding doors that may be described as state of the art in a market that is increasingly populated with products indistinguishable from each other. Again triple glazed, Grady Bi Folding doors offer the homeowner a reassuring weight and engineered feel that provides all of the benefits of bi folds but in a form that is aesthetically at the top of its game, offering the highest security and thermal performance, and yet which are light and easy to operate.

With 35 years experience of manufacturing windows and doors to unrelenting standards in timber, aluminum and PVC-U, Grady controls every step of the manufacturing process in its 300,000 feet2 factory in Co Mayo, from where weekly deliveries are made to the UK mainland. With offices and showrooms in London, Grady products are produced in excess of all UK design and performance standards.

The company’s managing director Arthur Grady says that The FIT Show offers an excellent opportunity to experience first hand what he says is the very real difference between Grady doors and windows and mass market products:

“For the first time we are offering a range of products designed to give installers an edge over their competitors in an exciting and profitable market sector that is relatively untouched. We have an excellent track record with leading UK house builders installing our products over many years in quality homes; now they’re available for home improvers.”
