About Us

CHeSS isn’t an organisation. It’s an event – a roadshow – where five leading suppliers are collaborating.

The reason is simple. We have products that complement each other, rather than compete. A roadshow showcasing our products gives architects and specifiers the perfect opportunity to investigate various solutions and discover how they work together.

Norseal, Boss Door Controls, Strand Hardware, Access2 and Cooke brothers are entirely independent, but between us, we have a comprehensive portfolio of window and door control, seals and security products.
