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.

This week in short

Jack Aluminium: the architect had created a timeless look in line with the building’s branding and the internal office partitioning is styled on a classic steel glazing design, says Will Woods of IDF Aluminium.

frameXpress: the commercial department at frameXpress has shown consistent growth recently with the reliability of the products and flexibility of the team placed as key advantages by customers.

VinylPlus: the debate about how Europe can make the transition to a circular economy is placed high on the political agenda. I’m sure, most people will agree, that a sustainable society without a circular economy is difficult to imagine.

Double R Glass & Roofing Systems: has announced the expansion of its Decorative and Specialist IGU Centre with the addition of a 2,500sq ft. manufacturing facility.

Deceuninck: grey continues to be a popular colour choice for end users and our new grey substrate uses RAL 7021 which we think will meet this demand perfectly.

Edgetech: for years have been a big supporter of GM Fundraising and so it’s great to have the opportunity to take part on the front line this time. The guys from our industry who have given so much time and effort for GM Fundraising are a great inspiration.

Everglade Windows: aïr has added the Ultion cylinder lock as standard to its range of the most impressive range of bi-fold and lift & slide doors.

Hegla/Bystronic: Village Glass, set to make a major impact on the architectural market with the state-of-the-art Hegla installation, includes re-master sub plate management system, gantry loading system working from automatic concertina racking systems, Pro-Lam combination float/laminated cutting table and a 6m EcoLam for over-size Laminated Glass.

Solidor: the service is outstanding, so we can trust that the product we order will arrive undamaged exactly when we need it, says Ryburne MD Peter Willemse.

TuffX Processed Glass: Glow heated glass is the latest innovative technology to take the glazing industry by storm. This pioneering product has been showcased exclusively at this year’s Grand Designs live show.

Edgetech: will give FiT visitors a glimpse of the scientific rigour it has brought to product development and testing over the last thirty years. Practical demonstrations of entry-level manual application equipment will show how quick, easy and cost effective it is to manufacture insulated glass units with Super Spacer and is always a popular feature at exhibitions.

Carl F Groupco: with the FUHR 881 multitronic lock, SmartSecure electronic door locking and smart access control solutions, has achieved Secured by Design accreditation.

Letter to Editor, from Stewart Lamb, Managing Director of VITA Hardware UK

Dear Ian

I’ve read with interest the recent news stories about the rocketing price of zinc and the fact that suppliers are offering new and upgraded aluminium alternatives in order to stabilise costs. As a hardware manufacturer, base prices for raw materials is something we keep a close eye on but it’s not something that drives our development.

At VITA Hardware, we’ve offered a range of aluminium based products for over five years now. Take for example our hugely popular Claymore range which is suitable for use with PVC-u, aluminium or timber windows and offer outstanding performance and reliability. We know this, as we have products out there, in the field, which have been operational for many years - tried and tested, fitted to last. ..[ more ]

Yours sincerely

Stewart Lamb
Managing Director, VITA Hardware UK
