PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS PVC-U TOUCH FOR A VIP DOG HOTEL » » PATIOMASTER IRELAND and longstanding customer Derryork Windows of County Londonderry have just completed an unusual project in Coleraine; the installation of five sliding patio doors in a VIP dog hotel. Ian Eccles, owner of Alpha 1 Dog Hotel, says, “dog homes can often be unappealing, with dogs peering through the bars of their kennels. I wanted to use patio doors so the dogs in our VIP suites would have a clear, open look out that felt much more homely.” Ian opted for five PatioMaster patio doors in Anthracite Grey, manufactured by PatioMaster Ireland and installed by Derryork. A range of different sizes was needed to cater for the different sizes of dog that will be staying in the hotel. Derek Morrow of the family- owned Derryork Windows said, “the quality of PatioMaster doors is truly superb – they’re highly engineered with smooth operation. The PatioMaster doors also offers superb energy efficiency and ensures protection against the elements ensuring maximum comfort.” Christine Gaw of PatioMaster Ireland commented: “When we were approached by Derryork Windows regarding this unique project, we were very excited as this is the first project of its kind for us and demonstrates the versatility of the PatioMaster sliding patio door.” Flying off shelves across the region » » EUROCELL DEPOTS UP and down the West Country have been stocking TP650 Trio, the best-in-class installation tape from illbruck. The cutting-edge product has been flying off shelves across the region, but some depots – such as Yeovil – have been particularly inundated with interest. Yeovil branch manager Jay Hannam says, “Installers realise that, if they’re going to thrive in that ever- changing commercial environment, they need to start considering sealant solutions beyond silicone – and when they hear about the outstanding performance offered by TP650, it’s not long before they want to give it a try.” TP650 Trio is a pre-compressed, multi-functional polyurethane tape that’s impregnated with flame-retardant resin. Designed for new-build and replacement installations, it’s quick and simple to apply, and is vapour-permeable while still offering driving rain resistance of up to 600 Pa. It’s fully compliant with BS8213-4:2016 CoP for the survey and installation of windows and external door sets, and the Glass and Glazing Federation’s Guide to Good Practice. David Naylor, illbruck TP650 Trio Product Manager, commented: “It’s fantastic to see TP650 doing so well. It’s a testament to both the time- saving, cost-saving, performance- enhancing benefits of the product. We’d like to thank Jay and all the staff for their hard work.” VEKA NAMES BAERLOCHER ‘SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR’ » » BAERLOCHER UK LTD HAS secured the top accolade in VEKA Group’s third annual Supplier of the Year awards.
