NEW TIMBER-LIKE BOARD FITS THE BILL » » EUROCELL, THE UK’S leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of window, door, conservatory and plastic building products, is enhancing its popular Roofline range with the launch of a new 16mm Flat Roofline board.

Installation is simple and swift; just fix it directly to the rafter feet with Polytop nails or screws. Once in place, the board will bear the weight of eaves tiles and guttering without any need for a backing board or tilt fillet. The board also simplifies fitting the soffit – just push the appropriate Eurocell soffit and it will slot into place. As with all other Roofline products, the 16mm board has the same market- leading guarantees against discolouration, warping and cracking: 20 years for white, and 10 years for laminated boards, provided the manufacturer’s recommendations are followed. These boards are available in a range of colours and widths - white, rosewood, black ash or anthracite grey wood grain and 150, 175, 200, 225, 250, 300 or 400mm - to enable homeowners to achieve a contemporary look and/or complement existing features. 10-YEAR MILESTONE FOR ‘SUPER FABRICATOR’ » » LEADING REHAU WINDOW AND door fabricator Shepley Windows has reached the 10-year milestone in its use of high quality fasteners from Rapierstar.
