Choose your widgets superhero » » WINDOW WIDGETS HAS JUST launched a campaign encouraging fabricators and installers to look at everyday ‘superheroes’ from within its products for PVCu window and door systems. For over 12 years, Window Widgets has been solving problems for both fabricators and installers, and the new campaign has been designed to communicate the key benefits of several product developments, including the structural universal coupler range, for inline connections, corners, bays, bows and conservatories. Given that they are not system specific, it means for considerable lower stockholding for companies sourcing more than one PVCu system. In addition, a large proportion of the structural universal couplers have achieved BBA certification and there are also a wide range of supporting trims available. Loadbearing calculations and frame deduction information is also readily on hand from the technical team headed up by Mike Hart. John Fairhurst, trade sales executive of Window Widgets commented: “Window Widgets has been the go to brand for clever product solutions, that are all fully tested, with many products BBA accredited and CE Marked.” THE NEW SOLID GEAR ‘ONE GTX’ SAFETY SHOE The ONE GTX from Solid Gear is a superbly constructed safety shoe with seven integrated layers to deliver excellent comfort and protection. » » IT’S DESIGNED AND built for active professionals who need a highly breathable, light and flexible safety shoe.
