Silent Gliss Office

Silent Gliss Training

Silent Gliss are the leading global supplier of quality interior window systems. They have a commitment to precision & use cutting edge technology to make bespoke systems with smooth gliding curtains and blinds.

Annie from our newly-refurbished Curtain Department in our Bury St Edmunds store recently took a trip down to Luton to their latest seminar and training day.

She spent the day learning about the new products they will be offering, as well as all about their existing products. Perhaps the most exciting development was an integrated home system to control your curtains and blinds, along with your heating, lighting and security in your home. Another interesting development is the introduction of Move. Silent Gliss Move is a wireless system which is very similar to Alexa and Hive. The Move server is plugged into your internet router and blinds and curtains can be operated by an app on your phone or tablet, allowing you to set scenes and timers. Perfect for the modern home!

Annie had a great time learning more about what Silent Gliss has to offer, and feels confident that she is now better able to inform Glasswells customers, and guide them towards their perfect home window systems.

If you're thinking about new blinds for your home, give us a call today on 01284 752804, or send us an email.

Introducing Kim - Our New Interior Designer

Kim BackhouseWe are delighted to introduce Kim Backhouse as our brand new Interior Designer. Kim will be working alongside the Soft Furnishings team with Debbie in our stunning new Design Centre.

Kim has a background in creative art and a BA (Hons) degree in Applied Interior Design. Prior to Glasswells she was employed as a Design Consultant and Window Display Visualiser. Starting out in fashion retail, she then transferred her interests in colour and style to interiors. Drawing has always been a passion which she has more recently utilised with commissions for architectural and vehicle watercolour illustrations. These skills have been extremely useful when putting together design schemes, especially in the early sketching stage of the design process.

 

She also brings to the role a sound working knowledge of a fantastic 3D computer programme known as SketchUp. This allows Kim to construct our customers chosen room using gathered survey measurements, giving a 360-degree tour of the space and the ability to add textures from around the store to show fabrics, wallpaper, furniture, lighting, flooring and accessories.

 

Yr 1 Haverhill Cafe Kim"I find both hand drawn and digital disciplines complement each other well; enabling prospective clients to get a feel and appreciation for their desired interior space, along with personalised concept/sample boards and advice. I feel I can offer a good all round view of any bespoke interior to assist our customers with their design challenges and help them finalise their purchases."

We are very pleased to have Kim as part of the Glasswells team, and can't wait to see what she designs for customers in the future!

Eat Out Eat Well Award

eat out eat well awardGlasswells are extremely pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Silver Eat Out Eat Well award.

Jo Churchill, MP for Bury St Edmunds, visited the restaurant on Friday 19th August to present the award.

The Eat Out Eat Well Award has been developed to reward caterers who make it easier for their customers to make healthy choices when eating out. It has three levels – Bronze, Silver, and Gold, and is symbolised by an apple logo in the shape of a heart.
The level of award is based on a scoring system that takes into account the type of food on offer, cooking methods, and how the meals are promoted to customers. This scheme benefits both caterers by promoting their businesses and consumers by helping them make healthier choices when eating out.
It is assessed and managed by the Environmental Health team.

Obesity is a growing epidemic in the UK and causes more than 30,000 deaths a year in England alone. Diet plays a major role in heart disease and has been linked to some cancers. This coupled with the fact that the average person eats out from home for one in six of their meals means it’s more important than ever for food outlets to help consumers make the right choices.

The Eat Out, Eat Well award is recognition for a café, restaurant or other caterer for the work it does to offer healthier choices on its menu.

Jo Churchill, MP for Bury St Edmunds, said:
“Obesity causes more than 30,000 deaths a year in the UK – it is a growing epidemic while diet plays a major role in heart disease and has also been linked to some cancers. Whether it is popping out for a sandwich or going out for a meal, research suggests that the average person eats out from home for one in six of their meals. That is why it is more important than ever for businesses that sell food to help their customers make the right choices.”

 

We are very proud to have received the award, and are working towards an upgrade to gold for next time!
