Our 5 Accreditations & What They Mean

What Is An Accreditation?

Granting credit or acknowledgment, particularly to an educational institution that upholds acceptable criteria, is the act of accreditation. Any individual or educational institution that needs to demonstrate that they fulfil a minimum standard of excellence must obtain accreditation.

GGFi – Warranty Protection

Thanks to GGFi Guarantee Protection on all of the work we do, when you pick BBL Windows, you can rest assured that your warranty will be honoured.

Warranty Insurance plans were developed in response to the need for Competent Persons Schemes like FENSA to give homeowners access to greater protection. These policies provide protection against the failure of installation enterprises to continue operating.

Any issues typically recoverable under the guarantee’s provisions in the event that the business collapses during the guarantee’s term may be the subject of an insurance claim in accordance with the terms of the policy.

Members of GGFi may also benefit from deposit protection, which insures deposits made on consumers’ behalf against a member company’s closure.


One of the most well-known architectural standards for environmentally friendly or sustainable building design is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Glass and other building materials cannot be certified, but they can be very helpful in obtaining LEED credits.

Compliance with ISO 14001, an international standard for environmental management systems, shows that we have put in place procedures and policies that address how we interact with the environment and lessen its impact. By assisting architects and clients with demonstrating the sustainability of their buildings through programmes like BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and LEED, this certification can have a significant positive impact (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

Home Improvement Protection

An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is in place to protect the customer’s investment and house in the event that any company they hired for home improvement work goes out of business.

Life is full of surprises. A business may stop operating due to insolvency, forced or voluntary liquidation, bankruptcy, the passing of all the principals, or retirement. An Insurance Backed Guarantee aims to uphold the conditions of the guarantee as originally provided by the contractor, regardless of what happens.

As soon as the deposit is paid and a Deposit Protection certificate is produced, home improvement protection begins to protect it. 

Consider paying a deposit to reserve home remodelling work. The worst then occurred when, for whatever reason, the trader stopped trading before beginning the task. The good news is that Home Improvement Protection will safeguard that deposit, arrange for contract fulfilment, or reimburse the deposit.


A government-approved programme called FENSA keeps track of whether replacement windows and doors adhere to building codes. They periodically evaluate each FENSA Approved Installer to make sure that compliance with building codes is upheld, including big national brands and small local businesses.

The goal of FENSA is to increase the quality of window and door replacements throughout England and Wales by safeguarding homeowners and professionalising installers.

They ensure that the work is energy-efficient, in accordance with construction codes, and registered with the local council. Check the insurance status of each FENSA Approved Installer’s warranty as well.

British Manufactured

You must show that either a “substantial transformation” or at least 50% of the production of or value addition to such products is finished in Britain in order to label them as being made ‘British Manufactured’.

Products must be completely created, manufactured, or assembled in the UK or considerably altered there through a treatment or process in order to qualify as British-made, and the Seller must be based in and selling from the UK (UK here means England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland ).
