GLASS&SEALEDUNITS On a Mission »»Based in the heart of West Yorkshire, Alpine Glass is on a mission to grow its business and with the help of window industry marketing experts Purplex Marketing it is putting all the right foundations in place. The team at Alpine has nearly ten years’ experience in the glazing industry, having started out manufacturing conservatory roofs in 2006. In 2012, they moved into retail, installing a wide range of PVCu, aluminium and timber products. Caroline Moffatt, Director at Alpine understood that driving retail sales would require an effective online marketing strategy. At the same time, Caroline wanted to entrust Alpine’s marketing budget to a company with the relevant skills and experience to excel. Caroline comments: “We appointed Purplex because we needed a company with not only impressive credentials in web design and online marketing but also really understood our industry. The team at Purplex have been brilliant and we are all very pleased with the new website and continued online marketing which is already starting to pay dividends” Alpine Glass’ website has been designed to allow accessibility and usability with a fully responsive layout that adapts to suit all screen sizes.

This new responsive website is packed with useful product information, large gallery; FAQ’s, downloads and includes a clever, interactive smart glass selector. The interactive SMARTGLASS® selector takes account of conservatory location, orientation, preferred choice of tint and the ability to increase the glass specification. There’s also a section where consumers and indeed the trade can highlight the preferred specification of the door and window glass, to ensure that there’s no risk of a glazing solution that accommodates solar heat gain, as windows under the Window Energy Ratings do. Within the selector there are three options to choose from depending upon which enhanced features are required. Jason McCabe, commercial director of Clayton Glass commented: “The new website is a perfect portal for us to shows off our market leading product range. With our industry first SMARTGLASS®-W and SMARTGLASS® Dynamic products we’re helping to transform the way in which we view glass.” Visit, e-mail enquiries@smart-glass. or call 01207 288200 Achieving Passive House Rating »»Thermoseal Group, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of warm edge spacer systems has achieved top Passive House Institute (PHI) ratings of phA for Thermobar warm edge spacer tube and phA+ for Thermoflex silicone rubber flexible warm edge spacer.
