World of Windows was established 25 years ago in Johannesburg as a specialist in aluminium and glazing products.
In 1997, the Cape Town factory was opened, which now also boasts an SABS accredited Powder Coating Plant.
More recently, World of Windows has established itself in Durban. By adding this facility, the group now has over 13 000m² of production capacity. The collective volume generated from these facilities enables procurement from source, often internationally, ensuring the most cost effective and technically advanced solutions, with the obvious benefits for clients.
World of Windows has developed its own proprietary aluminium systems and has become a technical leader in the market. All designs are verified through stringent testing using AAAMSA specifications as a reference. International travel and attendance of conferences and exhibitions further ensures that technical advances are incorporated into the products, and that they all comply with international standards.
The technical abilities developed through this process of research and development enables World of Windows to be involved right from the concept stage of projects, often designing products tailor made for the project. The challenge is to ensure that what was visualized by the architect or client becomes a reality. World of Windows has established a foot print all over South Africa with prestigious projects like the Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town International Airport, Palgrave & Pembroke (V&A Waterfront), Michelangelo Towers (Sandton) and many others. Completed projects total in excess of one billion rand over the past 25 years.
In keeping with international norms, the company has embarked on a project to implement the ISO 9000 Series Quality Management System. Integral to this is the Health and Safety and Environmental Responsibility aspects. As far as Health & Safety is concerned the company often achieves scores in excess of 90% for Health & Safety site audits.
