DOORS&WINDOWS Impressive Installation »»CWG Choices customer, Avon Bridge Conservatories & Windows Ltd recently completed an impressive installation in Chartwell Green on white using Kömmerling’s revered five-chambered O70 Gold® system. Avon Bridge has worked on an illustrious list of properties in various Cotswold villages and towns and believes that its expertise and the product range from CWG Choices and Kömmerling is a deciding factor. These larger properties in the Cotswolds also require more heating and therefore the adoption of a five-chambered window and door system has also added further weight their sales proposition, with Avon Bridge offering ‘A’ rated windows as standard. Jason Wilder, co-director of CWG Choices concluded: “Avon Bridge has been a great customer for us over a number of years and has been quick to adopt the new foils available from stock from Kömmerling. Our sales of foiled windows are now quickly approaching 30% of our business.” For further information on CWG Choices then log on to www.cwgchoices.com or phone their dedicated trade number on 01536 271940 RETURNING BACK TO SCHOOL »»A new Glazerite Windows Ltd customer, D&M Windows & Doors recently took a trip back to school during half term to fit Salterlee Primary School’s new Matrix 70 window system. Originally built in 1877, the stones from which the school is built were locally quarried by the families of some of the first pupils. Since then, generations of staff, school councillors, governors and PTA members have strived to uphold its Latin motto: “Multum in Parvo” (meaning “from a little comes a lot”). The contract was specified VEKA by A&A projects while VEKA commercial conducted the feasibility study as well as structural and wind-loading calculations so that everything was deemed suitable for the “happy, warm and welcoming school.” MD of D&M, Mark Hoolickin personally visited the site to pre survey and finalise the finer details as to ensure his fitting teams would perform to a high standard and complete a first class job. Glazerite’s Sales Manager Peter Smith was quick to sing the praises of the Oldham-based installer: “They have the expertise to cope with small and large contracts and do an exceptional job. They’re also great people to work alongside, hopefully they will be given more opportunities to show off their capabilities.” For more information visit www.glazeritewindows.co.uk A BRIGHT NEW LOOK »»New-look pro tapes for Synseal’s popular Shield and SynerJy PVCu profiles are being introduced during 2015.
