GGF helping to develop Hardware

Hardware Group

As architects, specifiers and designers continue to push the boundaries of window form and function, it is important to consider the hardware manufacturers that supply the glazing industry.

Hardware manufacturers not only have to satisfy challenging design requirements, but additionally have to comply with the many criteria listed within the Building Regulations, National and International standards.

Members of the GGF’s Hardware Group have a distinct advantage when it comes to keeping up to date with the latest changes to standards. Hardware Group companies representing the GGF on numerous BSI and CEN technical committees are not only kept up to date but also have influence in the standards development process.

With many European standards on the not too distant horizon, it is inevitable that window systems manufacturers will be turning to their hardware suppliers for clarification and advice. Members of the GGF hardware group will be ready to answer the questions, will you?

Members meet quarterly to discuss their interests, concerns, vision and planning as well as upcoming commercial and technical issues and standards.

With many developing and current European standards that apply to hardware, it is inevitable that window systems manufacturers will be turning to their hardware suppliers for clarification and advice. Members of the GGF hardware group will be ready to answer those questions.
