Senior Architectural Systems: " we are really proud of this project, not only because of the use of our glazing systems but more so for the fact that it is a great example of what close and early engagement with product manufactures can really achieve," Explained Simon Scholefield, Senior Architectural System’s architectural advisor North West.

Bennett Architectural: " we’re delighted to be working with such a well-known brand again and have no doubt the Knutsford showroom will look spectacular on completion," Lionel Grant, managing director commented.

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.

Leka Systems Limited " the LEKA Orangery Roof and the LEKA Warm Roof will be joined shortly by another product, which we’re confident will blaze a trail too. Our existing customers will be the first to hear about it," comment Rhys Hoddinott director of LEKA Systems.

Bystronic Glass UK: the B’ADVANCE is a standardized solution for high quality manufacturing of rectangular or shaped, gas filled I.G. units with low-E glass on one line.

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, " says Mark Atkinson, sales director.

Exlabesa UK : " this project was a great opportunity to demonstrate our innovation abilities and we were delighted with the results," Said James Lagan, director at Fenetek.

Spectus Windows Systems " manufacturing the mechanically jointed Spectus Vertical Slider will open up new opportunities for us and our customers because feature-rich mechanically jointed products are very much on trend" commented Lucy Griffith of Garrard Windows.

Dekko Window Systems " as the industry shifts, and consumers continue to turn their attention towards the premium end of the market, we have focused our efforts on creating a range that helps our customers across the UK capitalise on this demand" adds Sales Director Kurt Greatrex.

Trojan Manufacturing Group: " our Stainless Steel hardware can achieve over 1,000 hours with no problem. In fact, we’re so confident in the range’s ability to withstand corrosion that every item is covered with a 25 year anti-corrosion guarantee as standard," said Steve Hall, general manager.

Letter to the Editor - follow up on colour

Ian,

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? …»»

Sincerely
Rob McGlennon, MD Deceuninck UK & Ireland
