"I just wanted to say THANKS! I ordered two stainless steel handrail supports last week, and it was delivered only 5 days later, from UK to USA! The quality of the supports is outstanding - I'm very impressed and pleased with them."

"Interesting that I spent a lot of time searching the internet for surface-mount handrail supports like these. I found only one company in the US that has similar supports, and my inquiry to them last week has been un-answered."

"Thanks again - I can't wait to install my new handrail!"

Mark - 5th June 2015

It was also very nice that even though I knew only a little about what I was purchasing I was not talked down too."

Roger - 6th March 2015

Catherine - 23rd September 2014


"Just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge THANK YOU for such excellent service.

As you can see below I ordered the goods yesterday afternoon and they arrived this morning at exactly the time the carrier said they would be here.

Thanks for such a diligent picking, packing and postage service and thanks for using an excellent carrier with second to non communication.

It's good to see a company who is so efficient, it's rare these days.

Many thanks, and if I need anything stainless in the future, I will definitely be coming back to you."

Excellent product!

John Porter - 30th January 2014


"Hi, Just a quick note to say how happy I am with your product and service.

I spent ages deciding whether or not to put cabling in the balustrade of my new deck. After phoning around, and online searches for days and days, I could not find another company that seemed to come anywhere near S3i for having what I wanted. Your website presented the product well and the video instructions were clear and simple - even I could follow it! A couple of phone calls to S3i resulted in some friendly and useful advice.

I finally put an online order in (at 2pm) and got a despatch advice within three hours. Next morning, just after 8am, I got an email advising delivery in the next 90 minutes - even naming the delivery driver! On time, the delivery arrived (and with the named driver!) exactly as ordered. One more phone call to S3i for some advice resulted in getting a helpful email with a weblink.

I have now installed the cables (even I found it straightforward) and the result is superb - exactly what I had hoped for.

In summary, your website is comprehensive and clear, phoneline advice is patient and helpful, service is "wow!" and the product excellent. I'm someone who hates doing DIY - so thank you for helping make it less challenging and giving me a super result."

Len Clarke - 14th November 2013


"Fantastic service. Ordered yesterday at 1620, arrived today at 0830!"

David - 28th August 2013


"From the clarity of the website to the execution of the delivery, the whole experience was faultless. Thank you. I know where to come in future!"

Robin - 20th August 2013


"Thank you for delivering our order so quickly! The quality is exceptional too!"

Robbie - 22nd June 2013


"I have just placed an order via your web site and I just want to congratulate you on such an easy to use and well designed site."

Berny - 11th June 2013


"Just to say thanks for your great service."

Dave - 1st March 2013


"I wish to thank you and express how impressed we were with our order for a stainless steel handrail. Our whole experience from order, through to deliver and product quality has been exceptional.

We have tried to source a similar handrail from various suppliers, mostly fabrication companies, this proved very difficult - I could not believe how simple and effective your company made our purchase. This now completes the final part of our house extension and hopefully will succeed in our planning approval.

I will certainly recommend your services wherever the opportunity arises."

Elizabeth - 21st January 2013


"Just to let you know that I have fitted the balustrade surface mounted wire kits from your company!

As a precision engineer I was very impressed with the quality of both the components and the service received. Once again a big thank you and I am hoping that my friends and clients will also love the product enough to place orders! "

Douglas - 11th October 2012


"I am sick to death of walking into builder merchants, electrical wholesalers and engineers supplies for bit and bobs, then discovering they don't know what we want, haven't a clue what it's for, and whose counter staff tell us "they've never heard of it", even though we know full well they do stock it, that it's listed in their sales catalogue with the final insult being "Well, I've never been asked for one of those before". If British school teachers taught from your catalogue, showed children your product range, and went on to explain what all these items are for, then we might have young men and women who are educated and employable instead of the opposite. Your website and your goods show what can be achieved in Britain, so congratulations on it."

R Wilson, GripMaster Limited - 18th September 2012


"Thanks to all at S3i. The wall-mount sockets arrived and I've finished assembling the balustrades. They look great!"

Phil - 6th August 2012


"Good job, and I'll pass on my recommendation for your business to other potential users, here in Oz."

Peter - 1st August 2012


"Just a quick email to pass on my praise. I recently installed a customers garden decking project utilising your wire rope and fittings. Delivery was very very quick and the products was of a very high quality and once installed looked great!

I am very happy with your products and hopefully get the chance to use S3I in the future."

Paul - 28th July 2012


"May I just say how impressed I've been with s3i as a company (great website in particular) and you (Jonny) as an ambassador of that Company. I'm not surprised that you're running several weeks behind with production; you have quality products and they're being marketed very professionally. "

Andrew - 13th July 2012


"I received the items I ordered from your company today. I was impressed with the prompt and efficient delivery process but, more importantly, I really like the products that I bought to hang 2 stained glass panels. The Gripple fixings plus the wire rope perfectly complement to panels and they look great against the conservatory windows. "

Barrie - 7th April 2012

The pack arrived today and we will now be able to replace several damaged skeg wires on our club boats at a very reasonable price. When we need further supplies we will definitely be back in contact. "

Linda - 21st October 2010


"We ordered on the 14-Oct 2010 8 SHACKLES from your company over the internet, and today 15-Oct 2010 we received them. My e-mail is to thank you very very much for the speedy delivery and accuracy of our order, you as a company exceeded our company's expectation, People are quick these days to grumble if things are wrong, but not many compliment if things are correct. We will as a company use you again and any enquiries we receive regarding products you may do, we will pass on your details. Again. Thank you."

"May I just thank you for your brilliant service with the cabling I ordered the other day. I have completed the balustrade and everything looks and fits superbly well. I am extremely impressed by all aspects of your operation. The engineering is excellent, the speed, accuracy of manufacture and delivery astonishing!"

Ian - 25th July 2010


"It is unusual to find a company that lives up to the promises they make. I cannot say how impressed I have been with the whole experience. I recently bought some cables and fitting sets to use as balustrades for steps up on to some decking and would happily reccommend your company to anyone looking for a simliar product because:

  • the product is better than your competitors, it looks fantastic and is very well made
  • the website is clean and simple to navigate with good instructions
  • delivery took two days from ordering

    In this case you definitely get what you pay for, a great product coupled with outstanding service - even our builder was impressed.

    I am sure people ony ever contact you when something goes wrong, so job well done."

    Ed - 14th July 2010


    "Thanks for the wire and thimbles they arrived well within the predicted time.

    Its beautiful wire, I'm very pleased with it. It'll hold up the mast for my ham radio mast on the windy Welsh coast.

    Thanks again."

    Andy - 7th July 2010


    "Easy to use website, good information and a personally addressed update e-mail, was followed up with incredibly quick delivery of exactly what I had ordered! And all at prices far better than anything else I could find.

    When internet ordering is sometimes an anonymous and 'finger in the air' experience, you have proved customers can still get a good personal service. I will certainly recommend you to others with a similar interest.

    Feel free to quote me if you ever need some positive feedback. I never knew ordering a few stainless steel fittings could fill me so much happiness!!!"

    Matt - 1st June 2010


    "Wow! You were certainly fast! Exactly what I wanted. Many thanks. "

    Clive - 17th May 2010
