Carl Everest started A1S Group in 1986 to introduce new levels of quality and service to the roller shutter market. Thirty years later, Carl is Managing Director of a highly successful business with a well-established reputation for delivering the highest standards of quality and service – along with excellent value for money.
From an impressive 18,000 sq ft base in the North West, with modern manufacturing capabilities and a suite of offices, the site also provides a further 14,000 sq ft of storage enabling the A1S Group to offer a nationwide supply and installation service that delivers on time and to budget. Recent 2018 investment in a bespoke mezzanine floor and streamlined powder coating facilities has greatly increased fire curtain and fire shutter production capability.
“Today, we are still firmly dedicated to working together for mutual growth and benefit. It’s a commitment which continues to reap great rewards.”
Carl Everest – Managing Director
An innovative approach to product design, combined with substantial investment, has resulted in an impressive range of steel and aluminium shutters – and our range of fire curtains, fire shutters and smoke curtains are increasingly the choice of main contractors when trying to protect the buildings of the future. Recent research and development has led to the successful testing to BS 8524-1 for the Flameshield Fire Curtain Range. The standard is a significant improvement on the requirements for “Active Fire Barrier Assemblies”. In particular comprehensive performance criteria for fire resistance, impact testing, surface spread of flames, durability, motor testing and cyclic testing must be achieved.
This comprehensive product range comes with a full 12-month guarantee and excellent after-sales support. In addition, the full package of services provided by the A1S Group brings the benefit of single source responsibility for both architects and specifiers alike.
Little wonder then that Interserve, ISG, Kier, Wates, Skanska, Wilmott Dixon, Balfour Beatty, United Utilities, Laing O’Rourke, Remploy and many local authorities have chosen the A1S Group to successfully complete their roller shutter and fire compartmentalisation projects.
As you would expect, the A1S Group are members of the DHF (Door and Hardware Federation, formerly known as the Door and Shutter Manufacturers Association). A1S Group’s products carry the CE mark and comply with all relevant legislation – and the experienced team are happy to deal with any compliance issues, giving you total peace of mind about the standard of security and safety provided.
