2017 is a really special year for everyone connected to AGB as we are celebrating our 70th anniversary. We’ve been manufacturing door and window hardware for 70 years, continually investing in manufacturing, research, technology and personnel to make sure our products always exceed customers’ expectations.
Everybody wants their home to be warm and cosy. The Danes even have a word for it. Their concept of hygge, which translates roughly into English as ‘wellbeing,’ has been popular in Denmark for years and has now taken off in the UK as a way of rethinking home improvements.
Timber lift and slide doors are a popular home improvement product with homeowners. Unlike bifold doors, which are made up of individual panels which break up the glass and distract the eye away from the view outside, timber lift and slide doors are made up of large single glazed areas that invite more light into the home and are the perfect frame for the view outside.
AGB is urging self-builders to declare their intention to local authorities, as a new law forces councils to help them find suitable land for planning permission.
The recent Grand Designs Live exhibition at the NEC – and its sister show, UK Construction Week – prove that timber is becoming the modern material of choice for ambitious architects, builders and homeowners.
