DOORS&WINDOWS Sternfenster’s Skyline Door Striking it Lucky »»Thirteen installers have signed up to become authorised retail partners for StyleLine in the first few weeks after its official launch by Lincoln fabricator, Sternfenster. Steve Lane, Sternfenster national sales manager, commented: “Our existing customers have recognised the commercial potential of these unique products, as well as the advantage of being the sole StyleLine supplier in their region, and the beneficiary of salesoriented, effective marketing support. “Part of the StyleLine retailers are actually new customers, driven by the desire to differentiate their offer in the marketplace and appeal to the discerning homeowner with new and improved windows and doors that will help them increase sales and make more margin.” The StyleLine collection of residential doors has already proven very popular with homeowners as an alternative to composite doors, bringing together the low maintenance benefits of PVCu and the beautiful aesthetics of a timber entrance door. Steve said: “StyleLine is a highly marketable range, and we have created a very attractive brand around it, to help authorised partners promote its unique benefits to the style conscious homeowners.” For more information contact Sternfenster on 01522 512525, or visit www.sternfenster.co.uk A NATURAL CHOICE »»Window and door fabricator Quickslide is responding to growing demand for bespoke coloured PVCu windows and doors with the launch of its own-in-house painting facility.

He continued: “We have gained more experience than most during the last ten years so it seems a natural evolution that we should bring the process in-house. It also synergises well with our in-house laminating facility and means that now we can offer installers a laminated product that incorporates painted elements to create a higher quality, better finished product.” Quickslide has always maintained the philosophy of bringing as many processes as possible in-house, including glass unit manufacture, to give the company far greater control of quality and consistency, as well as lead times. www.quickslide.co.uk Got it covered! »»Now available for the UK market, the ISOe-EWI SEALING SYSTEM can be used by installers to provide rapid, high performance and enhanced energy saving insulation sealing solutions for a variety of external installations around the windows and doors as well as roof and wall base areas.
