Halspan Specialised initially in fire door blanks, and was the first company to offer a full range of pre-testing. We didn’t just test one door blank to see whether it could be used as a fire door; we tested a full range of different door configurations and modes. And continue to test them to British Standards (BS), European Standards (EN) and North American Standards (UL).
Hendry Equestrian is a family-based competition yard in East Lothian with a long dynasty in equestrian sport. We produce and compete showjumping and carriage horses at all levels, from young horses we have bred, produced and imported from Europe. Hendry Equestrian currently compete a string of 10 showjumpers throughout the UK and abroad. We are a competitive family with a great passion for both equines and our sport, and I feel that this is what drives our horses and team to achieve greater results.
