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.

Deceuninck: "colour is the future. People don't want white PVC-U anymore. Colours, particularly soft greens, are growing in popularity at an unbelievable pace simply because end-customers want more from their windows than the bog standard," says Glen Cain, managing director of Mr Window.

Hurst Plastics’: "homeowners increasingly want to add a stamp of individuality onto their homes and the entrance door is becoming a vibrant expression of a personality," Mark Atkinson, sales director, says.

Oakland Glass: "we work with a wide range of customers across the trade, new build and commercial markets and have seen growth across the board from existing customers as well as new companies switching to Oakland,"explains Tina Moorhouse managing director.

HEGLA UK: "by linking 'smart machinery' to various processes down the production line it will make many conventional processes obsolete and increase productivity substantially," Steve Goble, managing director

Epwin Glass: "we assemble insulated glass units to exacting quality standards offering a comprehensive range of decorative glazing options to enhance and add character," Katrina Earl, national sales manager commented.

frameXpress: "it is obvious to us and our customers that consumers want more than quality products at an affordable price. A major frameXpress advantage is the ability to act upon the promises we make and deliver far more than just the products, " Ian Davis, sales manager comments.

Haffner Murat: "our production has become far more streamlined with the introduction of the new SMR-4 welder and the accuracy of the frames superb, " Says Lee Johnson, Stevly's managing director.

Swish Window and Door Systems: "the customer had extended the property and we therefore needed to replace the windows throughout the main house to tie in with the new extension. The windows chosen were manufactured in anthracite grey on the external face with white internally for a sleek, sophisticated finish, " explains Director Gary Hembrow, of Somerglaze Windows.

Bison Frames: "we're very well-known and respected for our sash windows, because we have the expertise and skillset in-house to continuously improve our offering," Director Mark Tetley explains.

Letter to the Editor - follow up on colour


People are surprised when I say I'm expecting the first ever colour-only fabricators to emerge this year.

But colour is growing fast. It's already a large and profitable part of the market. Six of our top fabricators are over 50% colour and I'm getting calls all the time from forward looking fabricators who now want to talk about colour.

So who'll be the first colour-only fabricator? …»»

Letter to the Editor - With automation, the opportunities are limitless

Dear Ian,

In recent years, the structure of the IGU market has seen some dramatic changes.

Since 2007, the number of companies manufacturing glass units in the UK has dropped by one third to just 848. But, despite this, in recent years the total number of units being fabricated has seen a steady increase.

Many of your readers will surely be wondering how this is possible and here at Edgetech, we believe that automation is largely responsible. …»»

Yours sincerely,
Chris Alderson

Letter to the Editor - Don’t fake it - get the real thing!

Dear Editor

'Traditional timber looks, without the cost or maintenance' - in a nutshell, that's the message coming from the 'timber-alternative' market. But it's wrong. Even the best, most detailed uPVC products can’t convincingly pass for wood - and modern timber is a stunning, long-lasting, high-performing window material.

So why are so many installers settling for second best? …»»

Yours sincerely,
Sean Parnaby, Managing Director, West Port
