SAS International is a British manufacturer of interior products, meeting the ever increasing demands of clients and specifiers worldwide.
|SAS International manufactures a broad range of durable, sustainable and aesthetic products, meeting design, performance and integration requirements. All our state of the art factories are ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 accredited. With total control of the production process we maintain product quality and ensure maximum value.
Our continuous investment in manufacturing facilities and technology enables us to stay ahead in the marketplace, and provide a tailored and quick response for a global market.
Understanding how to integrate building elements and services means we can deliver outstanding design solutions which offer numerous benefits, including cost of construction.
Wherever possible we look to provide value engineering; through the design of products, manufacturing processes that reduce waste, maximising efficiencies and improving on-site installation.
Integration of services at the design stage is key: apertures can be formed to provide an engineered product for site installation or services can be factory-fitted off-site without the risk of damage associated during installation.
Tiles and panels pre-fitted with heating and cooling elements are manufactured in-house and supplied as one integrated unit for ease of shipment and installation. This co-ordination reduces the number of trades required on-site and installation time, minimising waste and risk.
Being self-sufficient is integral to the SAS manufacturing process. We make our own tooling and maintain our own machinery to ensure lead times are kept to a minimum.
The quality and performance of our products is paramount to the success of our business. Where appropriate we ensure that products and systems are tested in accordance with client specifications.
We have invested in building an independently certified Test Centre Laboratory alongside a dedicated technical team for our room comfort products. This major investment enables us to provide performance data for our range of chilled beams providing clients with further reassurance as to operating efficiencies.

|Global construction is being driven by client aspirations and government legislation to produce buildings that have a minimum impact upon the environment. This includes every aspect of the building from design to construction, waste management, end of life and running costs.
As a business we have taken the strategic decision to focus on metal products to achieve the highest performance, long term value and sustainability demanded today. In addition, our associated room comfort product ranges are energy efficient (helping to reduce energy usage and carbon emissions) and fully recyclable at end of life.
Through better design, responsible sourcing of materials and innovative manufacturing techniques, we are able to provide our clients with solutions that help their buildings to achieve suitable ratings under systems such as BREEAM, LEED, Ska Rating, Green Star and Estidama's Pearl Rating System.
The use of steel provides many benefits over comparable materials during the life-cycle of a product. Steel is a unique product in recycling terms - its properties remain unchanged no matter how many times it is recycled. The use of steel in construction sets the standard in the reduction of waste. Waste generated during manufacture can be recycled; there is little waste from steel products on site. Steel making by-products can be used by the wider construction industry for a range of products including road stone and lightweight aggregate.
Aspects such as the gauge of the metal, the grade of steel or aluminium, the method of painting, the thickness of paint coating and the final surface performance are critical factors to both the aesthetic appearance and long-term performance of the installation and therefore sustainability considerations. SAS International's paint coatings for example can be guaranteed for up to 40 years.
SAS International purchases all timber and wood based products from sources that have a commitment to offer either Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody or complies with the FSC standard for non-FSC Certified Controlled wood.
Glass is used in our partitioning and door solutions. As with steel, glass is 100% recyclable. We therefore work with our Float Glass suppliers to ensure the use of cullet (recycled glass feedstock) is maximised.
Finally ISO 14001 (Environmental Quality System) accreditation ensures that we reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes with regular management reviews.
