Orion Windows Is A FENSA Member – Therefore, You Can Trust Us

On numerous occasions, we have had people ask why they should choose us ahead of any other home improvement company in the area.

The fact that we are a member of FENSA is one of our strongest selling-points, a scheme that most people have now heard of following their recent TV advertising campaign.

If you’re not a big telly watcher or have no awareness of what FENSA is, we can give you the relevant background, which we reckon will persuade you that opting for a FENSA installer is the best option.


FENSA (Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) was established in 2002 by the Glass and Glazing Federation and is a Competent Person Scheme.

There are other Competent Person Schemes out there, but FENSA is the most high-profile of them.

All the installers that are accepted on to the scheme are the best of the best, an elite group of home improvement specialists.

When we applied to become a FENSA approved installer, we had to pass a series of tough tests under the watchful eye of a FENSA assessor and work in compliance with Building Regulations.

Even after impressing enough to secure member status, we are still regularly vetted and must maintain the highest of standards to retain our membership, with the same going for all other members. If FENSA decrees that our standards have dipped, they can withdraw our membership.

Because we work to building regulations, we can certify any window or door installation with your local authority on your behalf – a legal requirement.

Non-FENSA members can’t do this and you will be left to sort it yourself.

Being in possession of a FENSA certificate for any replacement windows and doors will be important for when you’re selling your home. Without one, buyers may be put off buying the place.
