Jump the Q with Coastal

Jump the Q

It’s been 18 months since we first launched our Part Q initiative helping the door and window industry meet new Building Regulations and in that time have helped joinery firms across England meet the PAS24 standards.

Our Part Q initiative - has been designed to take the pressure away from joinery firms and has helped scores of them offer their customers a range of PAS24 compliant doors and windows without the huge time and financial burdens.

It’s not just us talking about the benefits of our Part Q initiative. Iain McIlwee of the British Woodworking Federation writes:

Part Q Quote
“ The team at Coastal Group are to be applauded for taking such a proactive approach to helping our small and medium sized joinery companies meet their Part Q responsibilities. Part Q created a unique challenge for the timber door and window manufacturing sector, but through prescriptive methods of compliance that the BWF has developed and companies such as Coastal rallying to provide cascadable test evidence, it has not been as disruptive as it could have been.”

Coastal Living - Meeting the challenge of corrosive environments

Meeting the challenge of corrosive environments

We are often asked to provide advice on the most effective hardware options to go for when installing window and door systems on coastal properties.

Many in the trade are already aware of the corrosion issues arising in coastal properties. The exposure to high levels of aggressive, corrosive salt air attacks non-specialist hardware leaving it rusted, pitted and corroded in a matter of months. The result – unhappy customers and time lost revisiting properties to put right or replace the corroded hardware. But for Coastal customers this is no longer an issue thanks to the blu™ range of specialist 316 Marine Grade stainless steel which boasts a lifetime guarantee.

The blu™ range – now the UK’s largest range of 316 Marine Grade stainless steel hardware - combines high levels of style with market leading performance.

Trade warming to GLACE with NEW products set to expand the range further

Glace window fittings

Thanks to the latest window manufacturing techniques, more and more people across the UK are opting for traditional window styles in both the new build and refurbishment sectors.

By mixing the very best of traditional designs, including sash windows with their classic styling, with all the performance of high specification, modern timber windows, increasing numbers are now opting for and enjoying the very best of both worlds.

Here at Coastal we have seen this popularity reflected in the increasing demand for our Glace range of window fittings, which help create that perfect look, whilst using the latest manufacturing quality to ensure the very highest standards.

Such is the popularity of the range – which includes a fully suited set of fittings including Sash lifts and fasteners available in finishes including brass and satin and polished chrome – that we now extending it further.



Pera bulb end window handle - Glace

New additions which add to the range include the PERA handle, a bulb-shaped lockable, sprung action end window espagnolette, designed in a traditional style which will be available in four classic finishes. For more information on the new PERA Handle click here.

Finish options will also be upgraded across the Glace range in 2017 with the addition of an oil rubbed bronze finish.

Quality is paramount across the Glace range with fixing holes jigged and checked during manufacture to ensure consistent fitting centres enabling the modern joiner to set up CNC drilling and positioning.

“Glace is an increasingly popular product for our customers who love the fact that, inline with the growing popularity and demand for traditional styles, they can access a range of hardware that enjoys the best manufacturing standards with the classic design, style and attention to detail their customers want.



“We are delighted to be expanding the range further giving our customers event greater options for both finishes and also with the addition of the PERA handle,” said Coastal MD Loren Jenner.

MIND THE GAP – Coastal Extends its HOLLODEEN® Threshold Range to Deliver Wider Benefits


We are delighted to announce that here at Coastal we have extended our highly popular and innovative Hollodeen® threshold range to incorporate standard door thresholds.

W16LogoOriginally launched to use in tandem with Bi-fold thresholds, the addition to the range incorporating standard in and out door thresholds was warmly greeted when we launched the new range extension at W16.

And what’s more, with the thresholds in stock, all you need to do is call us with your specified size and we will cut to order for you – no waiting or lead times.

So Why Hollodeen®?

Hollodeen® is a highly innovative, unbreakable and life-long threshold enabling the trade to say goodbye to traditional problems of rotting timber cills.

Manufactured in Germany from a high quality resin that looks like stone and comes in four different finishes – Arduin Grey, Black, Silver Grey and Steel Grey, the new Hollodeen® threshold provides a lifetime of durability, removing the need to buy, machine and finish timber before fitting track.


Created from 90% recycled material, the Hollodeen® thresholds can be quickly and easily fitted by a single person, providing significantly increased lifespan and more efficient operation of door sets.

The resin used to create the new thresholds offer thermal advantages, the low heat conductivity prevents thermal bridges, reducing the linear heat losses that are unavoidable with other threshold options. It is sold in 9 lengths up to 3 metres.

The Hollodeen® thresholds also meet the Part M Disabled access requirements and come with the option of a jamb kit which not only speeds up the fitting process but prevents the Jamb from rotting.

Recesses for shootbolts can be easily made on site where required, once installed the threshold is maintenance-free and never needs painting.


“We are delighted to be able to extend the Hollodeen® range further to incorporate standard door thresholds. The range provides a fantastic solution for anyone fitting bi-folds and standard doors. Such is the durability of the resin, that the threshold lifespan is essentially unlimited as when it is exposed to moisture there is simply no risk of any rot. It’s also unbreakable, has a fire resistance of 30 minutes when used in conjunction with fire resistant doors and has exceptional thermal qualities,” said Coastal MD Loren Jenner.

“And with product in stock, there are no lead times as every order is cut to the required size before being dispatched.”

For more information about the Hollodeen® solution contact Coastal Group on 01726 871726, email:[email protected], or visit our hollodeen web page.


Part Q goes from STRENGTH to STRENGTH at Coastal

PartQ 1 year on Blog

It’s been almost a year since we launched our groundbreaking Part Q compliance system and in that time not only has the number of products we offer under it grown, but so too has the number of firms benefitting from it.

BSI Assurance Mark Template RGBUKAS logoWe created the Part Q compliance system to enable joinery firms to use our own generic Part Q certified products to manufacture officially UKAS tested and certified doors and windows in line with PAS24 without having to pay to have their own windows and doors tested.

One year on and the Part Q Regulation is set to experience further changes with increasing numbers of specifications coming through that will demand Part Q, affecting the market even more.

We have been delighted with the initial response we have had with the growing numbers of firms signing up to our Part Q support. We asked some of those firms what benefits they were finding from using our Part Q system.

The top 4 answers were resounding:



1 – Cost Saving

– joinery firms highlighted the significant cost saving made by using our PartQ Compliance System




2 – Time Saving

– by using the system time was being saved as a result of having all the sections and hardware available to hand





3 – Quality

– By working with us, joinery firms said they liked the confidence of knowing they are manufacturing a quality door/ window for their customers




4 – Work flow

– By using our system, joiners said it means they had the ability to continue working in all construction requirements (new build/ renovation/ barn conversions) by complying to the Part Q regulations.




Not only are we delighted with this feedback but we are once again expanding the breadth of products covered by our Part Q system.

New products being tested by us include the Tritus Secure, Stormproof section and ML3120 lock, which will be announced as soon as they have completed testing.

“Part Q has gone down brilliantly with our customers and we are absolutely delighted. Creating it in the first place was a reflection of our approach as a company. We are not just a supplier of products. We like to partner with our customers, providing them with a combination of technical knowledge and support, leading solutions and market leading products. The Part Q Regulations have had a major impact on the industry and we were determined to enable joinery firms to continue manufacturing and supplying quality timber doors and windows in line with Part Q,” says Coastal MD Loren Jenner.

HS Portal

New products set to feature on the stand include the launch of the HS Portal.

An innovative lift and slide door system, the HS Portal includes slim concealed top track with flush bottom rail, hook drive gear with locking mechanism, soft close and open option and adjustable wheel option.

CoFold Bottom Rolling system

Joining the CoFold will be the launch of the BiFold Bottom Rolling system. Manufactured from Marine Grade 316 stainless steel components, developed in conjunction with PC Henderson. Key benefits of the new system over other products in the market is that it is British made and the track is hidden under the door rather than existing systems which are seen when the door is closed.

W16 is set to be a really exciting event and we’re looking forward to not only launching a range of new products but having key demonstration areas where W16 visitors will be able to see our products in action, meet members of our team and see how we can really help their business,”

Hollodeen® fills the gap to provide a highly innovative, weather-proof, bi-Fold threshold

Hollodeen Bi-fold door thresholds now at Coastal

Coastal Group, the leading external timber door and window hardware specialist, has enhanced its product portfolio, introducing a highly innovative, unbreakable and life-long Bi-fold threshold into its range, enabling the trade to say goodbye to the problems of rotting timber cills.

Manufactured in Germany from a high quality resin that is designed to look just like stone, the new Hollodeen® Bi-fold threshold provides a lifetime of durability, removing the need to buy, machine, finish timber and fit track.

Created from 90% recycled material, the Hollodeen® thresholds can be quickly and easily fitted by a single person, providing significantly increased lifespan and more efficient operation of bi-fold door sets.

Available in a range of colours – all designed to reflect stone finishes such as granite or marble – the resin used to create the new thresholds offer thermal advantages, the low heat conductivity prevents thermal bridges, reducing the linear heat losses that are unavoidable with other threshold options. It is sold in lengths from 2000mm to 6000mm in 250mm increments.

Recesses for shootbolts can be easily made on site where required, once installed the threshold is maintenance-free and never needs painting.

“We are absolutely delighted to add Hollodeen® to our product range, providing joinery manufacturers across the UK with a highly innovative threshold solution which overcomes all the traditional issues associated with bi-fold cills,” said Coastal Group Director Anthony Jenner. “Such is the durability of the resin, that the threshold lifespan is essentially unlimited as when it is exposed to moisture there is simply no risk of any rot. It’s also unbreakable, has a fire resistance of 30 minutes when used in conjunction with fire resistant doors and has exceptional thermal qualities,” added Anthony.

Coastal Group plans to make the Hollodeen® solutions available for standard door thresholds and sliding door systems.
