Committed to maintaining only the highest standards, Rapierstar specifies and sources from well-respected ISO accredited manufacturers, in order to distribute high quality and competitively priced products.

“Rapierstar is the only specialist fastener supplier in the UK window and door industry, with over one billion items held in stock in our 100,000 ft2 warehouse,” explained David Furness, Managing Director. “This keeps window and door suppliers on stream with the fasteners they need across their different products types, with coated carbon steel, martensitic stainless steel and the high performing austenitic stainless steel fasteners all available to meet every application.

“Products are designed and manufactured to exacting quality standards. In addition to manufacturers’ commitment to excellence, Rapierstar also invests in a comprehensive in-house UK test centre with specialist fixings available next day for customers.”

Without a doubt, Rapierstar is synonymous with experience and quality, offering outstanding services underpinned by an industry-leading technical support team which boasts a collective experience in the fastener market of over 150 years.
