Seven things you didn’t know about……. KATUK

1. KAT is fast approaching 20 years in business. We started out manufacturing PVCu sliding patio doors, which have been developed over the years to include Hercules rollers, bespoke to KAT with a 160kg glass carrying capacity. Our doors are guaranteed for 10 years, with 3-star diamond security cylinders and 14 colour options off the shelf. Manufactured and delivered in just 5 working days

2. KAT’s vertical sliding box sash window can be supplied fully mechanically joined with run through horns and period fittings again bespoke to KAT to be a true timber alternative box sash window

3. KAT was recently awarded 10 BSI Kitemark licenses – the most certificates ever awarded to a single UK manufacturer in one go. That’s not just in the glazing industry, that’s covers all industry sectors! Chris Powell, KAT’s Sales Director was presented with the 10 licences at the 2017 FIT Show, by BSI’s Peter Saddington.

4. KAT’s website is designed to be a technical resource for our trade customers and their customers. There is a product presentation and an interactive product guide for each product.

5. KAT is part of The Kaliber Group, which includes Universal Arches, Spitfire Doors and Ayrshire Aluminium, with manufacturing facilities and showrooms in Kilmarnock, Macclesfield, St.Helens and Newhaven. Our business has evolved rapidly to become a manufacturer of aluminium and pvc-u windows and doors is a bespoke manufacturing partner of Kawneer, Veka and Schüco.

6. At inception the original business plan was to be a marketing agency providing a service for new business entrants into niche manufacturing. However, it was quickly apparent that there was an exciting a gap in the market for trade supply of PVC sliding patio doors and we decided to produce them themselves; the rest is history…

7.KAT supports as many charitable initiatives as it reasonably can and today provides regular support for 7 charitable organisations and causes, including Born Free, The Youth Federation, Rossendale Trust, The Silk Heritage Museum, MAC Activity Centre, The Thread and The Blackden Trust.
