Welcome to the Summer 2021 Digital Edition of Door Industry Journal

It’s great to be launching the Summer issue of DIJ, especially as it dawned on me recently that it is 22 years and 64 issues since I launched our Summer 1999 issue, which was the first as a proper magazine, as opposed to a simple newsletter.

Now, in a very different world, with ‘Freedom Day’ behind us after nearly 18 months of lockdowns and business disruption, things should be a step further to normality.

Opening up is great news for the many businesses that, unlike our various industries, have been severely impacted by all the lockdowns.

With our new freedoms in mind, we lead this issue of the DIJ on the forthcoming FIT Show. This is the first chance in around 18 months for us all to get back to what we know and visit a major trade show.

FIT Show 2021 is set to make a grand entrance at the NEC in September (26-28). This year it’s opened up to more of the door industry, shifting from the previous focus on the window sector.

But first, you have the delights of the DIJ to enjoy. Here’s a peek at what else is inside:

  • IronmongeryDirect: Advice on keeping your premises secure – page 16
  • SWS UK: MD Kevin Lindeque celebrates his 20 Years’ service – page 22
  • SWR Trade Spares: Rebrands and commits to “Go Beyond” – page 32
  • Garador: Historical adverts tell a story of a different time – page 47
  • Thermador-UK: Celebrate producing their 2000th roller door – page 66
  • IN2 Access: 5 Solutions for industrial door sensing & safety – page 93
  • Bft Automation: Are you up to speed on automated gates? – page 98
  • Boss Scrigno: Seven great reasons to choose pocket doors – page 110
  • Doorsets vs Traditionally Hung: Which side are you on? – page 114
  • Stairways: Leads way in fire safety innovation with PinPoint – page 116
  • ASSA CLIQ® Remote: Future-proofs the Hean Castle Estate - page 124

That’s more than enough to keep you amused on the beach!

So, I’ll leave you to have a good read. Whether you’re home or abroad, please enjoy your break and have a well-deserved rest.

Happy reading, but before you go.....

My personal thanks, as ever, goes to all our readers, advertisers and contributors for your support in producing this 132-page issue.
