BS-EN Standards BadgeSince the company's inception in 1670, James Gibbons Format has pursued the highest standards of quality and customer service. Today, this is recognised by the company's BS EN ISO 9001 accreditation - which demands modern, efficient procedures in every area of operation. As both designer and manufacturer of Format architectural ironmongery, the company is able to keep its promises with regard to the quality, availability and perfomance of its ranges.

The name of James Gibbons Format is synonymous with superb product design, the co-ordinated architectural ironmongery reinforcing the design concept unique to every building. The extent and completeness of the range is legendary - from a lever handle to a door stop, from door closers to hinges, Format covers every conceivable need - all fully co-ordinated to ensure design integrity throughout the project.

The company's own finishing plant produces a wide choice of anodised, polished, satin and nylon-coated finishes, together with non-standard options, to the highest quality standards.

Where the specifier's requirements cannot be met from the company's extensive standard product portfolio, a custom design service is offered - to meet bespoke project requirements.

Providing the Total Solution is the Format service to specifiers, contractors and building service managers. This includes ironmongery scheduling, multi-level key-mastering, site inspections, site delivery co-ordination both in the UK and overseas, together with after sales service and support.

The Format specification manual, with complete product ranges is available on request.
