1st Access design, manufacture and install custom-made shop fronts that are available in a range of glazing options and anodised or powder coated in a colour of your choice.

We specialise in refits and new builds, we can take out your old shopfront and fit with new, with the entrance system of your choice all compliant with current health and safety regulations.

Our Shopfront system has profiles to suit both flush glazed and bead glazed applications, or a mix of the two. The standard dimensions are 100mm front to back and 45mm wide, with some sections having a width of 50mm or 100mm. The typical wall thickness of this system is 2.5mm. 3D frames can be achieved with the 90 degree and 135 degree corner posts, or with custom pressings for other angles.

Flush glazed
The flush glazed system has two different pocket widths to take a range of glass units or panels between 6mm and 24mm thick. The pocket profiles enable 'shuffle glazing' of the shopfront frame.

Bead glazed
The bead glazed system can accommodate glass units or panels up to 28mm thick by varying the beads used.
