INDUSTRYNEWS Trojan Group to provide expertise at Triple Glazing Question The Trojan Group will exhibit in the Expert Arena at the Triple Glazing Question to be held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on 10 April 2014. Tony Chadwick, Trojan’s Group MD said, “Triple glazing is gaining increasing traction as a concept, but fully embracing it will require fundamental changes for the industry. The Triple Glazing Question is the perfect opportunity to look at what it means for us as an industry. Trojan has been developing products that are triple-glazing compatible for a number of years now and I’m delighted that we’ll be taking part and sharing our expertise.” Products on the Trojan stand will include its Mega Egress hinge. One of the impacts of triple glazing is the need for heavier duty hardware able to cope with the additional weight of the units. It is intelligentlydesigned multi-purpose products such as the Mega Egress that cater for both double and triple glazed units without tying up excessive capital in stock that demonstrate why Trojan has been invited to be part of the Expert Arena. ‘Perfect opportunity’ To book your free place visit: The Consultancy opens triple glazing debate WEB specialist The Consultancy is helping to further the debate around triple glazing after teaming up with leading component supplier, Edgetech UK. The Consultancy has helped to develop an online forum called ‘The Triple Glazing Question’ to encourage discussion and address issues around triple glazing from within the windows and doors industry. The site www.tripleglazingq. was launched earlier this year, ahead of Edgetech UK’s Triple Glazing Question conference to take place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 10 April. Richie Thornton, Director at The Consultancy, said: “The triple glazing question is a hot issue within the industry and it’s not something that is not going away. Edgetech UK want to further the debate and we were delighted when they asked us to design and develop a website which will help individuals and companies get involved with the triple glazing question. We also designed Edgetech’s new website in 2012.” The triple glazing website highlights the latest news and developments and provides information about April’s event and includes an online forum for discussion and debate. ‘Not something that is not going away’ or call (01429) 239689. Frames and Conservatories Direct celebrates with Steve Davis Network VEKA installer Frames and Conservatories Direct has unveiled an extended, refurbished 150 sq. metre showroom with the help of Six Time World Snooker Champion Steve Davis.

We have a much larger display in the new showroom, which consists of ten conservatories - all fitted out and styled so customers can get a clearer picture of the finished product. We also have 45 different doors on show, along with a huge range of windows in various styles and coloured foiled finishes. “We’re very proud of the scope we can display, and making the changeover to Glazerite and VEKA products has allowed us to offer some of the highest quality products on the market.
