The company is demonstrating its focus on working closer with installers by committing itself to sponsoring the Window Competition of the popular Master Fitter Challenge, in which 6 teams compete during the FIT Show to show their prowess at fitting fenestration products in front of a live audience. With competitors working to install a bi- folding door, a residential door, a lantern roof and windows provided by Epwin Window Systems, pressure is compounded by the lure of total prize money of £10,000 but even more so, the desire to be the best. “Putting our weight behind the Master Fitter Challenge and having our windows installed was the natural thing to do as we unveil our own plans at the FIT Show,” explained Gerald Allen, Epwin Window Systems marketing manager. “We place a great deal of emphasis on the quality of our windows and doors but actually so much depends upon the skills shown by installers. So, this is our way of showing our commitment to raising standards at the sharp end.” PIONEERING THROUGH-COLOUR » » ExtrudaSeal has announced the launch of AeroSeal, its pioneering new through-colour aluminium bi-fold door foam gasket. Developed by specialist extruder as part of its continuous research and development programme, AeroSeal combines superior performance and weather sealing, with ease of installation. Ideally suited to dynamic applications as the high performance foam provides greater ‘memory’ than traditional gasket systems. 52 A P R 20 17 This is combined with a co-extruded rigid foot, which prevents the foam from being stretched during installation. Chris Byers, Managing Director ExtrudaSeal said: “We have had the capacity to extrude foam seals for a little while so in this sense it’s not a new technology and performance is proven. “What makes AeroSeal different is that we’re co- extruding foam with a rigid foot. This is absolutely critical, in that it eliminates any issues around shrinkage because it can’t be over-stretched. “As a through-coloured system, AeroSeal is also very durable, if damaged, that damage doesn’t show as colour is consistent throughout.” Customers save an average of 30 to 40 per cent, on gaskets by buying product in from ExtrudaSeal, as a third party, compared to buying it from their systems company.
