    NBS Source

    NBS Source is a digital platform for architects and specifiers to connect with Manufacturers. BFT UK joined NBS Source in January 2024 to connect with architects, engineers, specifiers, and other similar industry professionals. Our wide range of bollards, barriers and door operators can also be found on the NBS source, meaning you’re a few clicks away from adding a reliable product to your latest projects. (NBS login).
