Introduction to FENSA and Building Regulations For Your Sash Windows


As a proud family-owned business, Super Sash Windows has been providing customers with quality sashes since 1999. Our team of specialists is dedicated to helping our clients find the best solutions to all their window needs while making sure they comply with building regulations.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss two essential regulations you need to consider when planning your window project: FENSA (the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) and general building regulation requirements in the UK. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have developed a thorough understanding of both standards and how this knowledge can benefit your window fitting plans. Let’s get started!

What Is FENSA?

FENSA is a substantial governmental body that certifies window and door installations. Registering with the scheme ensures that all the products installed in your sash windows meet approved Building Regulations. When a certified installer works on your project, they have already shown that their work complies with FENSA’s stringent safety and energy-efficient building practices regulations.

At Super Sash Windows, choosing a FENSA-certified installer such as ourselves will give you peace of mind and allow you to pursue your desired upgrade or installation project confidently. Plus, because we guarantee compliance with local planning rulings, our installations can be carried out quickly while ensuring quality results every time!

When it comes to heritage projects, however – more extensive scale renovations involving listed buildings or other historically significant abodes – there may be additional requirements beyond what FENSA typically enforces. In such cases, it might be wise to seek guidance from heritage experts who understand using materials which adhere to regulations while preserving character within historical settings.
