This was the first time we have used Durable across our 6no primary schools and we are more than happy with the service.
I met with Peter on site to discuss our glazing RA options and he was very knowledgeable and helpful and helped me get a programme of works arranged for our sites following the RA. The guys who completed the RA were courteous and professional in their work as they were working in a’ Live school’ environment so this required them to be flexible in their approach.
All the reports were clear and concise and easy to understand.
I would definitely recommend Peter and the Durable team again.
Our recent film application went extremely well, very pleased with the service and with the quality. Would highly recommend your services to other companies and would definitely consider using your services in a future.
Actually, this “future” is already here as we need few more windows to be filmed (the ones on a ground floor corner side, which ones we at first did not include). We have decided now to film those as well so that entire ground floor windows would be done.

We moved into our new home in July 2016 and soon realised that we could not live in our kitchen dinner / orangery. Day time temperatures were reaching in excess of 35° not to mention the glare. After some extensive research we decided to install film on the glass roof as appose to blinds which many companies recommended. “It’s been about 6months since Durable applied film to our orangery roof. It has been an outstanding success. The past summer temperatures were noticeably lower and very little glare which gave us the use of our kitchen again. We will compare the difference in temperatures this coming winter because the kitchen dinner was colder than the rest of the house in spite of two fairly large radiators. Great job.
We have worked with Durable for over 10 years, during which time they have undertaken glazing risk assessments for all of our main teaching campuses (5 in total) and all our halls of residence (approximately 5000 study bedrooms). This is a lot of glazing. The risk assessments are comprehensive and easy to follow, allowing us to formulate plans to apply film to areas of the highest priority in a world of limited budgets.
The team from Durable who visit our site to undertake the work do so safely, are polite and sensitive to a academic environment, along with an awareness of the issues surrounding working in close proximity to young persons. Durable’s work is always concluded successfully with minimal disruption to the students, and without any incidents.
I look forward to many more years working with Durable and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Just to say we are really pleased with the window film, it is much more
effective than the blinds, glad we had it done..!
We confirm that you have completed the security film applications at 4GSQ and 14TKY.
It was stated by the embassy officials that they thought that your workmanship was of a excellent quality, as was your attention to detail during the site visit the day prior to the works.
Thanks for all your help. Look forward to working with you in the future.

“It’s just about a year since Durable applied film to my conservatory roof. It has been an outstanding success. Summertime temperatures can now be easily controlled to give a comfortable 26C as against mid to high 30+C. Winter performance is even more dramatic. When outdoor temperatures drop to around freezing overnight the unheated conservatory retains heat, some mornings being as high as 10C. We also retain higher temperatures during the daytime when the central heating is off. I feel the benefits we have obtained from the film installation are even more remarkable when you factor in, that our cottage is at the bottom of a valley, alongside a fast flowing stream (which has a natural cooling effect) . AND the cottage does not benefit from direct winter sunshine between December and early March.”
We have worked with Durable since the early 1990’s and have had excellent service and advise on many compliance issues, surveying most schools and Civic buildings and assisting us to get to a glazing compliant position.
I would like to express our appreciation for the professionalism of your fitting team during the recent installation of window film at our offices. They were friendly, worked with us to ensure minimum disruption to our business, kept us informed, and cleared up any mess to leave a smart looking finished job.
In these days when it is often difficult to get good quality work people – your team were a pleasure to work with and a real credit to your organisation.
Thank you for your help regarding installing Solar Control film in my conservatory.
I would like to record my appreciation of the courtesy and helpfulness of your representative. Polite, convincing and reassuring – a pleasant contrast to the usual hard-sell approach.
With reference to the work carried out on our school this week. I felt I had to contact you to say how much my colleagues and I have appreciated the polite and unobtrusive manner of your fitting team whilst on site.
It has been a pleasure to meet such right-spirited workmen.
