SWISSPACER: "With SWISSPACER, you know that the products they're putting into the marketplace are going to be fit for purpose. But with La Pensilina, it's more about the aesthetics. It looks very modern." says, Fraser Caithness, Roofglaze sales director.

Kolorseal: "It is always best to choose which features to match in the first instance, window frames, door or even the colour of the bricks, if a homeowner wants their front door or window colour scheme to really stand out from the rest of the house. Likewise with fascias and soffit boards, this can all be colour matched perfectly to the window frames and doors." continues Deborah Hendry, managing director

Morley Glass: "We know through feedback from our installers that many homeowners say they would benefit from a blackout blind in specific rooms to suit their lifestyle. For example, those who work shifts and have to sleep during the day, or parents with young children - they can create a better sleeping environment with a blackout blind". Said, Ian Short, MD

This new innovative twin motor machine, will support fabricators routing profiles for trickle and night vents as they work to achieve the updated Part F ventilation requirements." explains Chief Executive Officer Dave Thomas.

It was a problem before the perfect storm hit - historical low levels of unemployment, combined with the fall-out from the pandemic, and a lack of international labour following Brexit.
