Bystronic & Hegla - advertisement
The Fenestration News Bulletin this week will be sent to more than 14,000 recipients in just over 9,000 organisations aligned to the Window Industry. Making it an effective delivery platform to get your Companies message across.

The round-up headline this week writes itself - slim, flush, effective efficiency, with lots of colour, and self-confident reassuring pride.

Senior Architectural Systems: "Aluminium windows and doors make an attractive alternative to uPVC and the use of colour can add further interest. We are thrilled that our Signature colour collection has captured the imaginations of both trade installers and domestic customers alike and that we are able to meet the rise in demands" said James Keeling-Heane sales director

HEGLA UK: "Glasstec has always been a very positive platform for the company to show visitors better and faster ways to manufacture. Many key industry players have shown a great interest in the range of products on show with laser marking and edge deletion being important topics of discussion with UK customers which far exceeded our expectations with regard to the market". comments Managing Director Steve Goble

Tradesmith: "The first PVC-U fabricator to offer a range of Bluesky certified A++, A and B rated acoustic windows. Apart from making the best range of flush sash windows, this brand line-up instantly enables Tradesmith to offer the widest, most exciting range of colour in the South East. And the killer is, we offer it with the same fast-response service levels in white and colour" Managing Director Mark Hutchinson

Universal Trade Frames: "The flush casement window is a design that has stood the test of time and it enhances both heritage homes and modern builds. our flush casement window offers impressive design flexibility and has something for everyone, no matter what the project. " said Managing Director Brian Kruger

Pilkington: " As well as creating whole new areas of floor space that enjoy views of the library’s beautiful courtyard, the increased glazing also lets natural light deep into the interior of the building while also efficiently helping to maintain a comfortable climate right through the year. " said Jeff Haber, managing partner at W&W Glass

AluFoldDirect "The contemporary, slim design of Venlo RD2 perfectly matches our aluminium slimline windows, bi-fold and sliding doors. We've kept things simple, with three door style options, in the two most popular colours, delivered in just two weeks, ready to fit." adds Managing Director Craig Miller

Exlabesa Extrusions "This investment will enable us to upgrade our plant and continue to deliver the outstanding quality our growing customer base relies on." said Fernando Quinta, director

Aztec Windows: " When customers see the alternative to standard windows, they immediately want to upgrade. The timber look was previously used mainly for the heritage market but is now becoming traditional mainstream and much more popular in the general market", comments Michael Hagan director

Frame Fast: " We had been looking for a solution for our popular Modus flush sash windows, and the new Jade MechWeld Joint solution means we can weld a timber-look joint without the fixings or glue needed to make a mechanical joint. " says Nigel Leivers, Director


Letter to the Editor - Niche to making at scale

Dear Ian,

The flush sash market is growing rapidly, and research among fabricators indicates that it's forecast to grow from an attractive niche to a mainstream window. But, if fabricators want to supply this growth market they need an economic way to make flush windows at scale.

It's growing fast because homeowners love minimal maintenance and windows which look wooden, even on the joints.

For many years there was virtually only one way to make PVC-U windows - that's with 45° corner welds - but fabricators have several timber-alternative options now, windows with mechanical joints, ones with a half joint or full timber look on both sides. …»

Yours sincerely

Alan Burgess
Managing Director, Timberweld
