JMS even calculates U values for all custom windows, doors and screens and helps make you compliant with building regulations and CE marking.

The requirement to CE mark external timber windows and doors became mandatory on 1st July 2013.
CE marking is a key indicator of a product’s compliance with EU (European Union) legislation and enables the free movement of products within the European market. CE marking confirms that a product satisfies the legislative requirements, e.g. a harmonised level of safety, to be sold there. It means that the manufacturer has verified that the product complies with all relevant essential requirements, eg health and safety requirements, of the applicable directive(s) or, if stipulated in the directive(s), had it examined by a notified conformity assessment body.
The CE mark is specified by the EU but refers to the relevant country’s regulations. Within the UK this enforces compliance with Building Regulations (Part L), which is applicable for all external windows and doors covered by the legislation. Within the UK the legislation is enforced by Trading Standards, NOT building regulations.
CE Marking affects ALL joinery manufacturers. DO NOT think that because you make a one off window or door that you will not have to CE mark. This is not true.
If an item requires a U-value then it also needs a CE mark.
Some joinery companies are still not providing u-values or the correct u-value, which relate to building regulations – Part L. This stipulates (since October 2010) that external windows need to have a u-value of 1.6 for a renovation project (or 2 in a new build) and external doors require a u-value of 1.8. If you are currently just calling the local glazing company for the u-value of the glass this is not the same as the overall u-value. The overall u-value is based on the following; type of timber, centre pane u-value and the Psi value of the spacer bars (see below).
If a u-value is not required due to conservation exclusion then CE marking will not be required either.
Most ‘Bespoke’ windows WILL require a u-value as they are not truly bespoke. (Truly bespoke windows will be exempt from requiring u-value and therefore CE marking.)

Building Regulations are again set to change with the introduction of the new approved Document Q (Security - Dwellings), which comes into force on 1st October 2015. The approved document sets out reasonable standards for doors and windows to resist physical attack by a casual or opportunist burglar, by being both sufficiently robust and fitted with appropriate hardware.
This important new regulation is applicable to new dwellings only and states that doors and windows must carry either PAS 24:2012 or Secured by Design status. The impact on those supplying windows and doors into the new build market is HUGE and includes entrances to flats, with almost all requiring security testing. Basically this could mean very high costs of testing for each joinery manufacturer to comply!
However at Joinerysoft we are trying to facilitate a cost effective solution between timber merchants, tooling and hardware companies and manufacturers.
As soon as we have more information we will update the information on this website about Part Q and the solution we are preparing for our customers.
For additional information you can also view the entire Part Q document on the government planning portal website here.

Are you complying with Part L energy ratings?
From the 1 October 2010, Part L of the Building Regulations for England and Wales for the Conservation of Fuel and Power changed. From this date all new and replacement windows and door installations need to comply with the revised regulations.
Joinerysoft has simplified this process for you. Our software now automatically generates U Values for you for all custom windows, doors and screens. Verified by bsi who are a UK notified body you can be reassured that our software complies with legislation.
To read more about this regulation visit the online version on www.planningportal.gov.uk or use these links to view Approved Document L1A (new dwellings) and Approved Document L1B (existing dwellings).

Tom concludes, “JMS has streamlined my business and made me more organised. Work is now completed quicker and more efficiently which has improved profitability. I now spend less time in the office but still manage to provide a quicker, more professional response to customers.” He adds, with a smile, “I would recommend Joinerysoft, but not if you live near me!”
Your invitation to hear Joinerysoft and other industry leaders speak at Leitz Seminar on 'A' rated future-proof thermal timber window production held 20th April 2016 at Leeds College of Building.
Lee Crookes says, “Our profitability keeps increasing year on year, and I know that JMS has played a part in that. The new JMS Setup Wizard is brilliant and walks you through setting up the software step by step. It is easy to visualise the joinery as you set it up.” Lee concludes, “JMS makes us more professional and is easy to use. It has made my business much better!”
JMS-Setup Wizard provides a step by step guide to setting up your own joinery within the JMS software, using easy to follow questions and images. Aaron Worth from Drew & Co SBS says, “Its Brilliant. The whole set up is much quicker and easier to use than the original spread sheet questions. By seeing the drawings it’s all very visual and you can see what’s happening.”
Wullie confirms, “The JMS software is easy to use and gives customers confidence that we understand their requirements.” He adds, “I wouldn’t be able to calculate u-values or CE mark without it. The alternative of having to manually test windows ourselves would price our joinery out of the market place.”
Joinerysoft will be speaking at Leitz 'A' rated window seminar on 28th October 2015 at Kendal College. Demonstrations and talks by other leading companies in the industry. See seminar invitation and programme here.
Stephen Rawlings purchased Joinerysoft's Joinery Management Software just eleven months ago, and already he has upgraded to a two user network to cope with increased demand. Stephen says, “It may have taken me a while to take the decision, but I now realise how important software is."
Four years ago Ian recognised the company needed software to help them with the time consuming process of quoting. He says, “There comes a point in your business where if you don’t have the right software you’ll fail; I was wasting so much time quoting that the cost of not having it outweighed the cost of purchasing JMS.”
Joinerysoft’s IT Director will be speaking at DjangoCon 2015. This annual conference provides six days of talks, tutorials & code. Located in Cardiff, Wales during 31st May - 5th June 2015. Tom Turner from Joinerysoft will be speaking on Tuesday 2nd June 2015 at 2:50pm on "How Django is used to build a desktop application, and the pros and cons of this approach."
Andrew Miller Architectural Joinery in Stirling, Scotland purchased JMS earlier this year. Andrew says, "I knew Joinerysoft would provide professional estimates, speed up the quoting process and provide accurate cutting lists for the workshop. What I didn't realise was how much it allows me to analyse other aspects of my business."
Patrick Ellis of London Box Sash Joinery says, "JMS has made us more efficient enabling us to reduce our production time, and stand back and take stock of where we are going. The software has helped us to keep up with growth and will help us to move forward into the future."

Customer of Joinerysoft, Jamie of Rudd Joinery in Norfolk commented, “As a small firm I can really see the benefit of JMS. As well as making me compliant with CE legislation the new Factory Production Control System helps me to easily keep track of training completed by my joiners and reminds me when my machines need servicing with a visible schedule.”
On 6th July 2013, Alan Turner, Managing Director of Joinerysoft took part in the La Marmotte race for local appeal Go Johnny Go. Even with 9 months intensive training behind him Alan describes the race as, “the toughest challenge I’ve ever done in my life. La Marmotte is considered to be one of the hardest and most dangerous of amateur rides anywhere in the world. To have completed it is a real achievement.”
During the workshop Joinerysoft’s Managing Director, Alan Turner demonstrated how to set up the JMS factory production control system and explained the intricacies of when to CE mark and when not to. Representatives from BWF, Leitz Tooling UK, Felder, Coastal, Mighton Products and Timbmet also exhibited and networked with delegates during session breaks.
