A History of Excellence in Birmingham

Shelforce’s history is deeply intertwined with that of Birmingham City Council. For over 180 years, we’ve been creating innovative solutions for the city’s housing needs. Our timeline of success includes numerous projects that have transformed council houses and high-rise buildings, making them safer, more comfortable, and more energy-efficient for residents.

Warmth, Comfort, and Energy Savings for Tenants

One of the primary ways Shelforce has benefited Birmingham City Council projects is through our thermally efficient uPVC windows and uPVC composite doors. These products have been instrumental in keeping tenants warm and comfortable while helping them save money on their heating bills. By installing our secure and energy-efficient windows and doors, the council has been able to address fuel poverty concerns and improve the overall quality of life for residents across Birmingham.

Our uPVC windows and doors offer superior insulation, reducing heat loss and draughts. This not only creates a more comfortable living environment but also contributes to lower energy consumption, aligning with the council’s sustainability goals. The durability of our products ensures that these benefits are long-lasting, providing value for both the local authority and its tenants for years to come.

Enhancing Safety with Fireshel Fire Doors

In recent years, fire safety has become a top priority for Birmingham City Council, particularly in high-rise buildings. Shelforce’s fully compliant Fireshel fire, smoke, and security doors have been vital in addressing this critical need. With the council undertaking a comprehensive program to replace fire doors throughout Birmingham, our Fireshel product has played a crucial role in ensuring the safety of tenants.

The Fireshel doors meet all current regulations and standards, providing peace of mind for both the council and residents. Their installation has significantly improved the fire safety infrastructure across numerous council properties, from tower blocks to low-rise housing estates.

Beyond the technical benefits of our products, Shelforce’s partnership with Birmingham City Council has created significant social value. As a local employer committed to providing opportunities for young people and those with disabilities, we align perfectly with the council’s goals for community development and inclusive employment.

Our work with the council has allowed us to expand our workforce, providing valuable training and employment opportunities for Birmingham residents. This aspect of our relationship adds an extra layer of benefit to every project we undertake for the local authority.

The partnership between Shelforce and Birmingham City Council continues to yield substantial benefits for the city and its residents.
