4 | Editor’s Comment | The Installer
OK – it’s February and it seems like the year is really
starting. There’s so much house building going on
and just from talking to friends and family, I know
more and more people are thinking about ‘getting
things done’ on the house.
So let’s start off with a conversation. What do you think of the
following statement by Paul Lewis, Moneybox presenter on BBC’s
Today programme? “There is nothing wrong in paying in cash.
Tradesmen have to be registered and keep a record. If you know
you are getting a discount because you pay in cash... that is
colluding in tax evasion.”
Let us know via Twitter or email.
One area where paying cash can also cause a problem for you
and your customers is health & safety. And now the Construction
Design and Management regulations look to include projects
that will take less than 30 days, you may have more duties –
and if you accept undeclared cash and there is an accident, it
could be taken as an indicator that you put profit over
safety...and that can lead to doing time.
There is potentially some good news but not exactly clarity. The
UK’s interpretation of the CDM regulations previously exempted
domestic clients, but the HSE’s new proposal brings the UK into
line with the underlying EU directive.
The Chartered Institute of Building and the Association of Project
Safety is claiming that to say that the full regs would only apply
to ‘footballers’ mansions’ and millionaires digging out basements
in London. This is at odds with the consultation document that
indicates that the updated version of the CDM Regs will now
apply to all projects with more than one contractor, whether
domestic or non-domestic.
James Ritchie of the Association of Project Safety says: “Limiting
the obligation to notify to complex domestic projects with 20
people on site simultaneously should avoid the prospect of
Middle England having to notify the HSE of their loft and kitchen
extensions. Some domestic projects can be worth several million
pounds and had previously been completely exempted. But
we’ve already seen that excavating millionaires’ basements in
London can involve significant safety problems.” Clear as mud
then!

TOP FIVE TIPS FOR
AUTO ENROLMENT
From 1 March this year, businesses will start having
to comply with the new auto enrolment pensions
legislation. In total more than 46,000 companies will
have to begin providing their employees with a
workplace pension this year, with 512,000 will be
affected in 2016. Each company will be sent a ‘staging
date’ – the plans will be phased-in but ovdr a relatively
brief period of time.
What is auto enrolment?
Auto enrolment is the UK’s new workplace pensions
initiative. Designed to get a larger proportion of the
population saving for retirement, the policy makes it a
legal requirement for all employers to automatically
enrol any employee (between the age of 22 and 65 and
earning more than £10,000 a year*) into a workplace
pension schme and make contributions to that pension.
How much will it cost?
The minimum employer contributions are 1% of each
employees’ qualifying earnings, increasing to 3% over time.
Employees will also contribute with a minimum of 1% of
their qualifying earnings, increasing to 5% over time.
Tip 1. A little planning goes a long way
The Pensions Regulator recommends firms begin their
planning 18 months in advance of their staging date.
Morten Nilsson, CEO of NOW: Pensions said: “Last year,
of the 4,279 companies that signed up with us, nearly
one in five completed their application either very close
to their staging date or after the deadline had passed.
A NOW survey found 44% of companies affected haven’t
given any thought to how they’ll go about finding a
provider for auto enrolment while over a fifth intend to
rely on their existing provider.
Tip 2. Don’t make any assumptions
Companies planning to rely on their existing provider for
auto enrolment should speak to them early on to ensure
that the scheme qualifies for auto enrolment and to
confirm that they are willing to extend it to all employees
on the same terms.
Tip 3. Seek help
For small firms introducing a workplace pension for the
first time, it would be worth seeking guidance from an
adviser who can help identify a value for money scheme
that is suited to the workforce. While selecting an
appropriate scheme is imperative, payroll providers also
have a very important role to play. Companies with
outsourced payroll arrangements should contact their
payroll provider as soon as possible to find out what
auto enrolment support they offer and which pension
providers they work with. By selecting a pension
provider that is already integrated with their payroll
provider, firms can avoid hassle and expense.
Tip 4. Cleanse your data
One of the biggest stumbling blocks in the auto
enrolment process is inaccurate or incomplete payroll
data. Taking the time to ensure that payroll data is
complete and entirely up to date, will help avoid
problems during the implementation process and
beyond. Where possible, companies should try and
obtain e-mail addresses or mobile numbers for all staff
to make issuing communications more efficient.
Tip 5. Contribute more than the minimum
Nearly one in five small and medium sized companies
surveyed said they plan to contribute more than the
legislative minimum with more than half saying this will
help with the recruitment and retention of employees.
This approach makes sense as high levels of staff
turnover can act as a hidden drain on an employer’s
profitability.
Just fine
Auto enrolment is a legal obligation and at the end of
January, The Pensions Regulator issued 166 businesses
with fixed penalties of £400 for non-compliance. i
Swisspacer has appointed John
Cooper as Market Development
Manager to support the company's Swisspacer’s growing share
of a growing market in the UK
and Ireland.
Starting his career as Sales Administrator at Alcan Aluminium, Cooper
moved to Cotswold Architectural Products as Sales Representative and then
back to Alcan as a Field Sales Manager
before moving to Schuco Interntational
where he became National Commercial
Manager. He says: “I was with Schuco
for 24 years and had every sales management job possible. I guess I needed
a fresh challenge and I was obviously
aware of Swisspacer from my market
experience.
“I am really excited about this new
opportunity.”
Peter Appel, Swisspacer Marketing
and Sales Director, adds: “I’m very
pleased that John is now a part of Swisspacer. He has valued experience in
business development and sales, and
I’m confident he will bring fresh ideas
into his new role. i

SAINT-GOBAIN CELEBRATES
ITS 350TH ANNIVERSARY
Saint-Gobain is celebrating its
350th anniversary this year with
a global strategy focused around
meeting some of the fundamental
challenges faced by the world
today: reducing energy consumption;
limiting impact on the environment; and
creating a new generation of buildings
which are safe, comfortable and energy
efficient.
With 2013 sales of €42 billion, SaintGobain is present in 64 countries and
190,000
people
employs
over
worldwide, including over 17,000 in the
UK & Ireland. It was founded in 1665 to
deliver a world first – the production of
glass on an industrial scale – and has
continued to grow its business via the
ongoing development of new services,
products and ways of working with
customers.
As one of the world’s top 100
innovators, Saint-Gobain spends €400m
a year on R&D globally, tackling some of
the biggest challenges of our time. One
in five products manufactured by SaintGobain did not exist 5 years ago. SaintGobain in the UK and Ireland is
committed to investing in training for the
next generation of contractors and
professionals, as well as supporting
existing professionals looking to upskill.
The company’s Training Academy
Network, including Greenworks, has
delivered more than 70,000 hours of
training since 2011. In the UK and
Ireland, some of the best known and
respected companies in the construction
sector are part of the Group, including
British Gypsum, Isover, Glassolutions,
Saint-Gobain Weber, Saint-Gobain
Glass, Saint-Gobain PAM, Pasquill,
Celotex and Ecophon. Together they
offer a range of high performance
energy-saving products and solutions to
help create a more sustainable built
environment. i
Network VEKA has addressed
changes in the regulation of
consumer finance, helping its
member companies to continue
winning the larger contracts
typically associated with such
funding.
MD John Ogilvie (pictured) explains:
“The FCA’s regulatory changes make
greater demands of companies that
wish to offer consumer finance – so
much so that many businesses have
been dissuaded from doing so.
“Knowing that the ability to offer consumer finance often allows companies
to command orders of greater value –
homeowners opting to re-glaze their
whole house rather than, say, just the
front or back, for example – we recognised the need to put mechanisms in
place that would preclude our members from missing those opportunities.”
Realising that not all Network VEKA

making
preparations for its AGM and
Awards Evening on Saturday
21st March. Specialist hardware

Sponsor.
From 12 noon, attendees will be able
to visit exhibitors at the ‘Network VEKA
Business Centre’ and talk to suppliers
such as finance and marketing
specialists, affiliate companies, training
partners and more, to learn how their
services can help enhance their
business. This part of the day will be
rounded off by the official AGM
programme, with Network VEKA MD
John Ogilvie and The VEKA UK Group’s

The Gala Dinner and Awards Evening

member companies were interested in
actively promoting consumer finance,
the organisation has introduced two
kinds of support, as John describes:
“Besides the offer of assistance with
applying for consumer credit licences,
members could instead opt to add a
Network VEKA banner to their website,
directing homeowners to finance
providers who can potentially offer personal loans for home improvement
expenses.
“Customers benefit from very competitive rates compared to other sources of
finance, making this a mutually advantageous offering for both them and our
member companies.
“It’s this kind of forethought and provision that has kept Network VEKA at the
vanguard of the industry for so many
years and resulted in the unprecedented
membership renewal figures we've
reported recently.” i

OUTSTRIPPING MARKET
GROWTH
Network Veka says it
has experienced growth
at more than double the
rate of the rest of the
market in 2014. Its
successes are reflected
in
the
Network’s
unprecedented
membership
renewal
rates.
The VEKA UK Group’s
Sales and Marketing Director Colin Torley says: “We’re
delighted to start the year spurred on by such an encouraging
set of figures. Network VEKA pioneered standards
organisations in the PVC-U glazing industry and stats like these
affirm that the package we’ve honed over the past 19 years
really delivers.
“Membership renewals stand at 99.2% for the past year – an
unprecedented uptake that confirms how well our offering fits
the bill.
“We continuously consult our members to ensure that we
provide everything they need – from customisable marketing
materials to supplementary products from carefully selected
affiliate suppliers and of course, with the benefits that come from
being part of The VEKA UK Group. i
GEZE UK has continued its expansion programme
with the appointment of Spencer Allen, who rejoins the company as National Sales Manager for
Window Technology Systems.
Allen first joined Geze in 2006, before leaving in
February 2014 for a brief stint with Delta Ventilation. During
his eight years’ with Geze, Allen worked across the
technical support, project management and sales divisions,
building up a wealth of product knowledge and experience
of the industry and its customers.
In his new role he will be responsible for growing sales of
window technology systems across the UK and will work
with architects, contractors and other specifiers to ensure
that they select the right window solution for each project.
He comments: “I am pleased to have re-joined Geze UK as
National Sales Manager for Window Technology Systems.
The company has always offered an excellent product range
and I’m looking forward to developing our market share of
window technology still further.” i
10 | News | The Installer
Commercial specialist Solar Windows has won
REHAU’s first ever Installation of the Year
competition. The Caerphilly based fabricator’s installation
for Crest Nicholson at Rosewood Park in Colchester was
chosen as the winner in an independent online vote.
The contemporary project features a mix of tilt and turn
windows in Rehau Total70 profile and French doors in the fibre
composite Rehau Geneo system, all finished externally in light
grey foil.
Dean Read, the Solar Windows Business Development
Manager responsible for the project said: “This is a huge new
build development with more than 1000 Rehau frames installed
on two phases. Our team were on site here for much of 2014,
so it’s great that all of our hard work has been recognised.”
Gareth Jones, Rehau’s Marketing and Technical Director,
presented Dean with the winner’s trophy and a personalised
iPad. He says: “We’d like to thank all of the companies who
submitted projects this year and encourage even more of our
customers to start thinking about the projects which they could
maybe enter into the competition for 2015.” i
Window and
door fabricator
Quickslide has
been accepted
as a member
of
the
prestigious
Guild
of
Master
Craftsmen
after thorough
and rigorous examination of its standards and
procedures.
The company will not only have the right to display the
Guild emblem as proof of its quality but it will also gain a
listing on its national consumer lead generation site,
www.findacraftsman.com along with other benefits.
Chairman Adrian Barraclough says the accreditation will
stand as further visible proof of the standards the company
has always upheld: “Our existing customers don’t need
convincing of the quality of products and service we offer
but it is always reassuring to have such independent
acclamation to show the rest of the world. The Guild is a
highly respected body and we know from the application
procedure that it doesn’t take its standards lightly so we
know the emblem will mean a lot to our customers.
“This industry is all about quality companies standing
apart from the rest and making that difference clear to their
customers. This has always been at the heart of our own
philosophy so we are delighted to have been accepted as
members.” i

Certass – Delivering
More to You
I
n our Christmas articles you
may remember that we
highlighted that our Managing Director, Mr Jason
Clemmit was looking at
ways to give more back to our
members by providing you with
additional benefits and we
asked you for your input in what
these should be. Spring is fast
approaching and so is a range
of new benefits to our registered
member companies. Starting in
the next couple of months and
following throughout the year
Certass is bringing on board a
range of membership benefits to
enhance what we deliver to you.
We will be announcing these
new
membership
benefits
through both the trade press and
our website.
On the subject of our website,
keep a close eye on it over the
next few weeks. We have fully
reviewed our websites content
and working with a leading web
design consultancy have merged
and fully redesigned our web
content from both these websites.
The new design is up to date
and it is quicker and easier
than ever to find the information
you our customers and consumers what. We currently have
the main Certass website
www.certass.co.uk and the Thermal Rating Register website at
www.thermalratingregister.co.uk
As with all websites over time,
content is added on an ad hoc
basis and there can be a tendency towards information overload and/or a confused link
flow. These websites have done
12 | Certass Column | The Installer
their job very well but it’s now
time to move on.
Certass Improved Joining
Process
In line with the launch of our new
website we are also redesigning
the Certass offering. We are no
longer simply a glazing Competent Person Scheme (CPS), we are
a multi-trade installer and product certification scheme. To this
end, our application documents
are currently been re-designed to
make clearer what you get from
Certass and what you must do
for each aspect of our certification products. We are cutting the
form-filling process down to a
minimum.
We have also launched an online application platform for
those companies that ‘just want
to get it done’. You are able to
provide us with your company
details as well as submit the required application documents.
But don’t worry the personal
touch is still very much central to
our philosophy. If you want to
talk to our sales team they are
available to help. They even
work on untill 7.30pm every
Wednesday to try to ensure they
are available when it’s convenient for you.
Certass Moving forward
As we all know it’s a fast-paced
business world today. Certass is
a forward facing company who
is always looking to respond to
our customers’ needs. Is your current certification provider adapting to meet your business needs?
If not give us a try. If we haven’t
persuaded you to join Certass
yet, keep an eye on the benefits
we have coming. We believe
you will find we will be offering
more than any other Certification
Body, Competent Person Scheme
or indeed trade body. We are
the only scheme you will need
moving forward, go on give us
a go. i

20 Years of

H
allmark Group

and supply of
it’s flagship
collection of Elite Entrance and
Elite Modern Composite Doors

‘20th Year of Manufacturing Excellence’ this year.
The start of 2015 sees the
Group’s growth continuing.
Group Director, Paul Spencer is
engaging with trade customers
across the UK and Europe to
focus on the launch of a new
and eagerly anticipated Aluminium Door and Panel Collection being launched in early
February, 2015.
At the same time Hallmark Panels welcomes the arrival of Nick
Holloway as it’s new Sales Director. Nick will bring an enthusiastic amount of industry
expertise and knowledge to Hallmark with a focus on strong business and trade partner sales and
development across the Group’s
product range.
Originally formed from three
current Group companies, Fortrace, Laminated Supplies and
Hallmark Panels, Hallmark
Group Products has gone from
strength to strength in recent
years, continually developing it’s
UK manufacturing operations
and product innovation so as to
ensure a service that exceeds
customer expectation for quality,
performance and affordability –
every time.
14| Cover Story|The Installer
2014 saw the addition of a fourth company under the Group
umbrella – Toughened
Glass Solutions Ltd. delivering an efficient, self
sustained glass toughening and sealed unit
manufacturing operation that supports and
supplies the Group’s
core door production
processes as well as organically growing it's
own list of glazing customers.
In the last quarter of
2014, Hallmark enhanced its already
highly successful range
of Elite Composite
Doors with the introduction of the Elite
Modern Collection. An
offering of modern design and aesthetic appeal, delivering a high
quality, affordable composite door product set
into the marketplace
that offers customer focused product innovation.
Gary
MaddockGreene, group marketing manager says: “On the back of
everything we have built, 2015
will be a year of outstanding opportunity for the Group. With UK
manufacturing currently seeing
real, positive growth indications
in the market, it’s an ideal opportunity to really engage with
our trade partners, installers and
fabricators to help them grow
and drive the industry forward
with us.”
Paul Spencer, Group Director
concludes: “As one of the UK’s
market leaders in PVCu, Composite and Aluminium Door and
Panel manufacture, we are viewing our 20th Anniversary Year as
a very exciting time for both ourselves, our loyal customer base
and dedicated team of staff.” i

SUBJECT: URGENT PLEASE READ. Important warning for safety reasons.
Dear Customers & potential customers.
It has recently been brought to our attention that a person is attempting to set up a similar business to ourselves in the same
town and with a similar name. This person is known to my employees and we believe has cloned Advanced Welding
Technology’s website by copying and pasting copyrighted pictures of our products.
Although we appreciate competition on an equal footing this person / persons have neither invested in product development or
the understanding of the window & glass industries.
I write to you as I am concerned about health and safety. AWT products are manufactured to a high specification. Any
imitation may not be produced to the same standard and could put your employees at risk.
We do not have any association with this new business whatsoever.
This matter has been passed to our legal team and will be dealt with as a matter of urgency however, in the meantime if you
should be contacted by Advanced Glass Handling Equipment please DO NOT think this business is anything
to do with ourselves it is not.
Thanking you in advance for your co-operation,
Kind Regards,
Gary Booth.

Glass
Art for Arts Sake
O
rders for Apeer’s
bespoke glass artwork service are
booming according to the company, which has its
own in-house glass studio and
employs a team of 13 decorative glass technicians. The firm
points to the improving economy
along with growing awareness
of the service bringing a surge
of orders.
Apeer is also one of the very
few UK based door manufacturers that hand crafts its standard
glazing designs to order and offers a completely bespoke glass
design service thus providing retailers with yet another point of
difference for their customers.
Says Lisa McClean, head of
the in-house studio for Apeer:
“Our bespoke work is becoming
increasingly popular with people
who want to give their homes an
individual look. They do that in
all sorts of ways – from pictures
of their pets or a favourite landmark to one we did recently with
the couple’s names on it.
“We’re even fairly flexible
about small changes to our standard designs – something we
are able to do because each
one is made to order.
"Bespoke designs can add
extra time onto the process, so
we cost these according to the
complexity of the design.”
Bespoke designs for glass panels, sidelights and windows are
individually drawn up in consultation with the homeowner but its
standard glass designs are all
featured on the company’s
‘Doorbuilder’ software system
which is available to all Apeer
stockists. i

Door-Stop International has
won its 5th Construction Marketing Award for Best Digital
Campaign, in a joint entry
with construction PR agency
MRA Marketing.
“It’s fantastic news,” said Martin
Dickie, Business Unit Director of
Door-Stop. “Our strategy is to make
it easier for customers to order, market and sell Door-Stop doors, building their own businesses. A two
year, multi-channel, integrated campaign with MRA Marketing did just
that – and the award recognises just
how successful this has been.” i

create an attractive fusion of heritage appeal and modern style,
while Matrix provides a contemporary feel with its laser-cut stainless steel elements in a modern,
polished zinc, linear design.
Paul Edwards, Sales Manager
for the DDP division comments:
“It’s clear that the appetite for
glass designs in composite doors
is not slowing down – quite the
opposite. What we have seen
however is a shift in popularity
of style. Some 10 years ago designs such as Abstract, Clarity
and Elegance were launched
and quickly became the height
of fashion for doors. While there
is certainly still a market for these
styles, there has been a move
away from glue chip glass de-
signs in favour of the sleek, modern effects achieved by products
such as Modena and Matrix."
Matrix and Modena are now
included in the DoorGlass Collection catalogue, along with
technical and ordering information. Download the PDF. i

Designer and manufacturer, Senior Architectural
Systems, continues to develop its product portfolio
following the launch of the brand new SPW501
door system. SPW501 offers many of the thermal
benefits of the highly successful SPW500 door, including the availability of painted cut lengths for
many of the stiles and rails.
As with the proven SD door range, all joints are square cut
for ease of fabrication. As this is a development of the
SPW500 system, fabricators can use their existing tool set
up with the SPW501 system.The SPW501 is available in a
range of options, with both square and anti-finger trap doors
still available.
Using the same suite of framing sections as Senior’s
SPW500 commercial doors, the SPW501 has been enhanced with the addition of a wide clip and plate flush
glazed mullion section. To provide additional design options
the new system will be offered with a narrower 58mm clip
and flush mullion in the near future. The new SPW501 suite
is available on Senior’s LogiKal software package. i

Rocal’s Endurance
Campaign
R
kehau is backing
Rocal’s high profile
campaign promoting
its Endurance Solid
and Secure range of
composite doors.
Having been a supply partner to
Rocal for more than 10 years,
Rehau is already supplying outer
frames for the Endurance range
in its energy efficient Rehau
Total70C five chamber profile in
a wide choice of colours and finishes. It will also shortly begin
supplying outer frames in its
sculptured Rehau Total70S profile, to give customers an even
wider choice.
As Rocal introduces new branding for Endurance, a dedicated
website and a new full colour 64
page brochure for customers,
Rehau is preparing for an increase in associated profile sales.
Katrina Earl, the
Rehau area sales
manager responsible for Rocal, says:
“We’re really excited about the new
2015 campaign to
promote the benefits
of Endurance. It has
huge potential in
the retail market
with 21 different
door styles and 10
glass designs – one
of which is even
named the Katrina
after me! The new branding and
marketing support campaign is
really exciting because now the
product will have the backing it
needs to take it to the next level.”
Rocal’s Managing Director
Stephen Nadin (pictured) is
equally enthusiastic. He says:
“Endurance is a quality product
backed by great suppliers including. We’re investing in this high
profile new marketing campaign
to raise awareness of the range
amongst trade customers and to
give them the tools they need to
promote it to consumers.” i

Tradelink has been
manufacturing aluminium windows and
bi-fold doors for four
years and in that time
has seen demand increase greatly.
MD Jim Moody says:
“Tradelink is helping installation companies large and
small take advantage of the
growing aluminium sector.
We set up our own manufacturing division, through the acquisition of an established aluminium fabricator four years ago. Aluminium isn’t the easiest material to add to your range as a PVC-U fabricator, in fact several companies have tried and failed because the differences between the two
materials are so vast.
“Bi-fold doors are the stand out performer for our customers. Manufactured using the Smarts profile,
Tradelink’s customers and end-users enjoy the material benefits of aluminium including slimmer,
cleaner sightlines, strength, longevity and durability, with the additional benefit of colour and finish
choice offered by powder coating and anodisation. i

Zen’s Teachings –
Marco on Hardware
Marco Zen, UK and Ireland Sales Manager for Italian hardware manufacturer AGB, talks
about elegance, style and philosophy
I
talian hardware company
AGB has brought Imago Lift
& Slide to the UK. It’s a luxury
timber door that oozes elegance. It’s everything anyone
wants from a door, more
glass, slim and stylish frames and
a smoothness that even George
Clooney will find hard to beat.
The luxury of the wood is combined with the componentry from
Italian hardware specialists AGB
whose philosophy is 'technology
must be beautiful'.
Nowhere in its range is that
more apt than with Imago Lift &
Slide doors which are stylish,
and energy efficient. They feature
te AGB Uni-V Central Point to ensure a consistent weatherseal
and thermal break between the
interlocking timber door sash and
frame. It’s tested to extreme levels
of water, air, wind and impact.
To make it even more efficient,
Imago has the Climatech flush
threshold made from reinforced
fibre glass. It not only guarantees
thermal performance but sits at
the same level as the floor, so it
looks amazing.
As with any door, security has
to be a top priority. AGB’s Poseidon high security locking system
is a real innovation in keeping
homes safe. Its low profile twin
hook, central bolt lock secures to
a concealed security striker, providing the highest protection.
Imago is about paring the
frame back to give the emphasis

Astra Helps Close
Deal for London Flats
H
undreds of Astra
3000 Series door
closers have helped
make newly refurbished homes safe
and practical for tenants. New
flat entrance doors, supplied by
PDS Ltd are part of a major
facelift and improvements at Fore
Street Estate in Edmonton, London by ALMO Enfield Homes.
The closers were selected for
their ability to close these firerated doors efficiently while at
the same time being unobtrusive,
hard wearing and reliable. In addition, there is a closer in the
3000 Series for any size of door
– no matter how narrow – making the doors eminently usable
for tenants, no matter how able.
The upgrade of the flats on the
Fore Street Estate has included
the installation of new gas boilers, double glazed windows and
a new insulated roof and walls.
Enfield Homes also took the opportunity to re-decorate the
block internally and externally,
including fitting Secured by Design Accredited flat entrance
doors from PDS featuring the
Astra 3000 Series concealed
closers.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire
Safety) Order 2005 (the FSO)
came into force in October
2006 and brought the common
parts of blocks of flats within the
scope of mainstream fire safety
legislation for the first time. Since
flat entrance doors are critical to
the safety of the common parts in
the event of a fire within a flat,
the FSO requires them to be fireresisting and self-closing.
The 3000 series is available in
four different power sizes with
adjustable closing speed and
latching action for different size
and weights of doors. In the case
of the Fore Street Estate, 3001
(Size 1) and 3002 (size 2)
closers were specified to give a
combination of ease of use by
residents with reliable closing
and latching on narrow entrance
doors where a Size 3 closer
would have made the door too
‘heavy’. i
astradoorcontrols.com
Geze UK claims to have seen a growing trend
for the specification of concealed closers in
order to maintain the aesthetics of design while
ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation. The company’s range is called Boxer which is installed within the door leaf leaving only the guide rail
visible when the door is open.
There are a number of versions. The Boxer 3-6 accommodates doors up to 180kg in weight with a maximum
leaf width of up to 1400mm in a single action configuration, whilst the lighter duty Boxer 2-4 offers single and
double action functionality. In a single action configuration it will accommodate doors up to 130kg in weight
and a maximum leaf width of up to 1100mm. When used in a double action configuration the Boxer
2-4 will accommodate doors up to 80kg in weight and a maximum leaf width of up to 1000mm. The
closing speed, closing force, hydraulic latching action and hydraulic backcheck can all be easily adjusted once the closer is installed. An electro free swing mechanism is available on the single action
versions.
Alternatively, the Invers range of cam action door closers are fitted within the door transom and are
ideal where an anti-ligature product is required. The spindle connects neatly to the top of the door, replacing guide rails. i geze.co.uk

Specialist international friction-stay manufacturer and hardware supplier
Cotswold Architectural Products recently had its products specified in a very highprofile project in Turkey’s capital, Istanbul. A large quantity of Cotswold’s HD26-180 hinge
and HD102 friction arm were specified in Metropol Istanbul – a mixed development that combines
one of the largest shopping malls in Turkey, offices, residences, educational institutions and a recreational area.
A focal point of the project is the grand
tower, which is designed as one of the
tallest buildings in Europe and is expected
to attract 23 million visitors per year.
Luz Seminario, Export Sales Executive at
Cotswold comments: “We’ve built up an
impressive portfolio of projects where our
stays and hardware have been specified.
Our products use galvanised steel which is
designed to offer maximum longevity,
even in the most corrosive of environments
and as such is ideal for large scale
commercial projects such as Metropol Istanbul.” i

New Showroom
As part of a continuing programme of investment, Bowater Doors
will soon open a brand new showroom at its Midlands HQ.
Situated in Minworth near Birmingham, the showroom has been
designed to showcase Bowater's broad and varied range of composite
doors while echoing the look of The VEKA UK Group’s new flagship
showroom in Burnley.
Bowater Doors’ National Sales Manager, Alan Hague explains: “The
whole team are delighted with the new showroom. It will be a huge
asset going forward, giving current and prospective customers the
opportunity to get to know these stylish, high quality products in much greater detail.
“Our doors are handmade-to-order and, besides the showroom examples, visitors will be able to see them during
construction, on our factory tour. For those who can't get to Minworth there's a great selection of Bowater Doors on
display at The VEKA UK Group's Burnley showroom, too.”
There will be a three-day event to celebrate the opening, starting with an official 'ribbon-cutting' ceremony with
VEKA UK Group MD, Dave Jones on Monday 2nd March 2015. i bowaterdoors.com
Wicona is Europe’s first aluminium systems company
to use insulbar RE from Ensinger. The thermal insulation bars are used for the thermal separation of profiles for windows, facades and door constructions,
and are made of 100% recycled material. This marks a
decisive improvement to the life cycle assessment of the overall systems – without compromising quality and without any added cost
for Wicona customers.
The unmixed recycled polyamide used undergoes an upcycling
process which places its properties on a par with those of new
material. Polymer blends or mixed recyclates are not used. Use of
the product, which was developed by plastics specialist Ensinger,
means an 89% reduction in the consumption of fossil resources, an
84% reduction of carbon emissions and 32% less water consumption. ‘insulbar R E’ is now set to be put to widespread use at
Wicona for the first time.
Wicona CEO Arnd Brinkmann: “Keeping a company at the cutting edge of innovation is first and foremost about the concrete
implementation of new developments which represent a tangible
improvement and which make a sustainable mark on the industry.
With these insulating bars made of recycled polyamide, Wicona
and Ensinger are working together to create an established position for this meaningful innovation in the marketplace.”
“Sustainability is playing an ever greater role in construction –
the world over”, adds Dr. Roland Reber, CEO at Ensinger.
“Thanks to this partnership we are now making available
windows, doors and facade systems which will equip clients,
architects, planners and processors to meet current and future
requirem ents.” i insulbar-re.de/en
The VEKA UK Group, has created a new showroom more
than three times the size of the previous display space.
The new showroom sits alongside the new customer
meeting room and the two brand new spaces are linked
by the new Imagine Bi-Fold and Imagine French Door

Colin Torley, Sales and Marketing Director at The VEKA
UK Group, says: “The showroom has been designed to
offer a light-filled modern space that fits with our branding. Windows have been installed with a 'floating' effect

Kenrick Launches New Wwebsite
Visitors to Kenrick’s new website will be just three clicks
away from where they want to be thanks to a streamlined design and added functionality.
“This is a really positive step in making our website as widely
available as possible, whilst bringing greater convenience to our
growing customer base”, says Steve Williams, Kenrick’s Sales and
Marketing Director. “It brings a great benefit for the fabricator by
enabling them to reach where they need to be in just three clicks. And
thanks to our comprehensive product referencing, it is now easier than
ever for customers to identify parts.
“We were very mindful of our customers’ needs when developing the
site. Having listened to them, we knew they wanted a website that’s
easy to use and provides the flexibility to access it on tablets and Smart
phones whilst they’re on the move. This website does just that and we’ve
had some very positive comments from our customers about it.” i

Deceuninck’s customers can now sell A* Certass [A+
BFRC equivalent] energy rated windows easily and
cost effectively.
A re-design of the internal chambers for its popular 2800
system means the PVC-U Systems company can now offer top
energy ratings without the need for complicated glass
specifications. And it’s not just Deceuninck’s white profile that
benefits. Uniquely, the A* ratings are achieved for Deceuninck’s
Colour Express woodgrain foils too. It’s yet another benefit
Deceuninck is cascading down to its fabricators and their installer
customers.
Energy efficiency is one of the first things homeowners look for
when they are replacing their windows, so Deceuninck’s new A*
energy rating will be a great selling tool for Deceuninck installers.
Sales Director Rob McGlennon comments: “Being able to off er a
top energy rating using simple and affordable glazing
components, makes this a very powerful selling tool for our
customers. A lot of work and investment from us saves time and
cuts their costs without lowering quality.
“Through Deceuninck’s InstallerPro scheme,” continues Rob,
“our larger fabricators and installers will have easy access to the
Certass certification, and our smaller customers will be able to get
A* rating for free!
“There are lots of good windows in the market, so our products
need to be outstanding in
order to help our
customers do better. In
addition to great
energy
performance,
our
windows are also
PAS 24 accredited,
making it easy to get
Secured by Design.
And our wide range
of foils are available
from stock, on time
and in full. Our
fabricators say
our
great
products plus
unmatched
service and
support is a
winning
formula for
them!” i

Exploiting the strength and slim proportions of steel, bespoke
internal glazed partitions, screens and shower enclosures are
increasingly being designed and manufactured by Steel Window Association members for commercial and residential projects. Traditional W20 steel window sections are frequently used
to form screens. These may be configured to create three quarter height and full height panels with 90 degree returns or
curves and to take large or small glass panes.
Screens can include windows or doors up to a height of 2.4m
with fixed glazing above where extra height is required.
Most screens are single glazed but when needed for acoustic reasons, for example when creating
corporate boardrooms, double glazing with acoustic glass may be employed.
A fixed screen with no doors or other opening sections can be designed to achieve a 30 minute fire
rating. i steel-window-association.co.uk

Thermoseal Raising the Bar
Thermobar Interbar is a plastic alternative to replace existing internal
aluminium systems that simulate multi-pane windows. It helps to
improve energy efficiency and minimise the potential for condensation
on an insulated glass (IG) unit around the surface mounted system.
This new bar is designed specifically to complement Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer
(although it can be used with other warm edge spacer systems).
Thermobar Interbar can be supplied with compatible centre and edge keys in 11.5mmx18mm and 15.5mmx18mm. It is currently in stock in black, but grey and white alternatives will be available in the New Year.
Mark Hickox, Sales Director at Thermoseal Group, says: “We are currently asking our customers to speak to our area sales managers so we can demonstrate how cost-effective our warm edge solutions are when replacing aluminium alternatives and helping
to improve the energy efficiency of their units.” i thermosealgroup.com
Extended reach and increased
overhang of installed windows
is provided following the addition of new components to
ISO-Chemie’s thermal insulating and load bearing bracket
system, ISO-Top Winframer.
The system is based around a
1,200mm length pre-fabricated
composite installation frame,
which can be cut to size on-site
and secured in position using an
adhesive. This enables installers to quickly fit windows
into the insulation area between the inner and outer
walls, avoiding the need to use metal brackets which
can cause non-repeating thermal bridging and give
extensive problems when the windows need replacing.
Now, a selection of new system brackets have been
introduced to provide increased overhang whenever
necessary. These are available in three sizes: a 80mm
wide x 80mm high bracket to fit the majority of UK window sizes and a 140mm wide x 90mm high option for
deeper window profiles, or for use with combination
products such as roller shutters.
A third bracket size (200mm wide x 110mm high) is
ideal for reaches from 160mm to a maximum of
200mm, providing a robust, strong and high performance support frame with a high load-bearing capacity
that’s capable of supporting heavier window loads as
well as bi-fold doors.
ISO-Top Winframer can be used with a range of
ISO-Chemie foam tape sealant systems to provide effective and high performance window sealing. These
include ISO-Bloco One, ISO-Bloco One Control, ISOBloco 300 and 600, the ISO-Connect Vario range of
self-adhesive foils and fleeces, and ISO-TOP Flex
Adhesive WF for bonding and sealing to masonry and
joint/corner sealing
A major end-user benefit of the new system is that
when a window needs to be replaced at a later date it is
not necessary to remove the internal plaster finish of
the reveal wall to remove the old metal brackets and fit
new ones, saving further disruption, refurbishment
time and costs. i iso-chemie.co.uk
Avocet Hardware has lauched a brand new 116-page product catalogue
which features a mix of tried, tested and trusted ranges plus a selection of
new products.

started off being named Hardware Company of the Year at the National
Fenestration Awards and continued on in that vein – signing a series of
major distribution deals, strengthening our team, and investing heavily in
stock levels and product development.
“Each of these successes we look at as building blocks, and with them all
now in place we have a strong foundation and the capacity to build upon
sales of our existing products, make significant in-roads with our new ones
and cement our position at the forefront of the market.
”Amongst the new products included in the catalogue are: Pioneer TS007
1-star rated lock; Affinity composite door lock and the Affinity Ultra stainless steel door furniture. i avocet-hardware.co.uk
