Building on generations of growth – about BSF Group
For over 30 years, BSF Group has been establishing its name for innovative design, quality manufacture and prompt installation to a growing portfolio of clients from the industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
Our success has been sustained by the vision and hard work of founder Charan Singh Toot, who created BSF as a family business in 1975 in Barking. The baton was taken up by his son Jasbir Singh Dhesi, who took over an established firm in 1999 with his business partner Gurvir Singh Atkar and the work continues under the current generation, Manj, Ricky and Jaz Dhesi.
The success of BSF Group is founded on those same principles passed from generation to generation: bringing together a team of imaginative designers, technically skilled manufactures and can-do installers, all fronted by a customer-friendly sales team which delivers on what we promise.

From small beginnings, BSF Group now supplies and installs some of the most pioneering architectural glass technology available today across the UK. Our range of framing solutions includes curtain walling systems, commercial entrances, doors, aluminium windows, bi-folding doors, sliding doors and glazed roofs.

BSF Group Expert Process
Creating the perfect look for your shop front or entrance begins at the design stage. We can design a bespoke shop front or welcoming entrance that is tailored to your specific needs using the latest computer-aided design (CAD) software. Our capabilities also include powder coating allowing you to design your entrance or shop front incorporate colours from our wide range of RAL and British standard colour palettes.
Part of our service is to do a comprehensive site survey which will look at the feasibility of different designs. For instance, it may reveal whether it would be better to use automatic swing doors instead of automatic sliding doors. It may indicate that aluminium would be a better choice for the storefront than frameless glass.
We use the latest in CAD software, you’ll see exactly what your project will look like ahead of time. The software produces a realistic and accurate rendition of the design and is able to project the cost of materials accurately as well. Changes made in the design phase of a project cost much less than during construction. Our design team will work with you during this phase to advise you on all aspects of the project and to answer any questions you might have. Our designers are able to listen to your concepts and ideas and turn them into tangible designs on paper that you can then adjust as needed. It is our goal to achieve a design that you are perfectly happy with and meets the needs of your business. Alternatively, BSF Group can work to any Architects design drawings and specifications.
Our in house manufacturing and powder coating of all products ensures that BSF Group can offer the most competitive prices, whether you are a contractor, fabricator, architect, retailer, developer, local authority, office or building group. The Technology utilized throughout the designs used by BSF Group are the most up to date and are continually being amended and improved to satisfy a broad spectrum of clientele needs.
Then, our highly trained manufacturing team uses the information from the design phase to craft quality products that will be shipped to the job site. It is only then that installation begins. Our expert installers quickly go to work utilizing the professional skills for which they’ve been trained and also drawing on years of experience. Since everything was planned down to the last detail ahead of time in the design and manufacturing phase, we at BSF Group are able to minimise the time we spend on site. This means less disruption for your place of business, your customers and speedier time in service for your installation.
