Freewall at 100% Design Exhibition, London


Freewall showed at 100% Design exhibition,  we used the exhibition to showcase our designs of locker units and storage wall cupboards, showing the versatility of the units. The centre piece of our display was an AV unit, in which, on the enclosed tv screen, played a video of how these units were made and also assembled at the exhibit. This along with the video of our workshop boys in action proved to be very successful and attracted many visitors to the stand. We enjoyed meeting with existing clients and indeed new and potential clients, the stand was manned by staff from the Freewall team who found the whole experience enjoyable, and refused to rise to the comments from the office about being “on a jolly” for the day.

Freewall awarded Fira Gold Certificate

Reception - Storage Wall

FIRA Gold Product Certification provides a mark of excellence for furniture products, signifying that products are of a high quality and produced at a consistently high standard. Anco has received the certification for Freewall, a storagewall system.

Freewall offers unlimited scope to create efficient storage systems in any office environment, with flexible units which are designed to fit from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall, maximising the amount of space available.

Freewall is fitted to tailor the needs of the office and offers an array of unit styles that meet the demands of today's dynamic businesses. This includes a selection of products such as room dividing units and pass-through doors, which enhance the versatility of the office space, as well as eliminating the cost, and time used to create additional walls or partitions.

The initial product assessment of Freewall was in-depth, objective and thorough. Workmanship, ergonomics, strength and stability, as well as finish performance and effects of atmosphere on the product were examined by FIRA. The assessment also involved an audit of the Anco Storage factory in Billingshurst, West Sussex.

The FIRA Gold Product Certification scheme is backed by an ongoing re-audit and re-test programme to ensure that having achieved FIRA Gold Certification, the standard is maintained. There is also an annual factory audit to ensure that the factory produces the product to the same standards as the original assessment of the furniture. This means a review of production procedures, design changes and an examination of the complaint record ensures that any adverse trends are spotted and resolved as soon as possible.

Mark Hurman - Director of Anco Storage said, "Receiving FIRA Gold Product Certification for our Freewall storagewall system is a fantastic achievement for us. We pride ourselves on our reputation for supplying high quality, competitively priced products with an unrivalled service within our industry. Our FIRA Gold Product Certification provides verification of this to our clients."

FIRA also offers Gold Certification for installation services within the furniture and kitchen industries. FIRA Gold Product Installation Certification indicates that product installation is carried out professionally and to the highest standards.
