DOORS&WINDOWS NEW BROCHURE LAUNCH »»WITH THE RECENT announcement of a new solid and secure composite door range using the proven Endurance® door slab, TruFrame has now launched a supporting 76 page brochure that existing customers have dubbed the new ‘composite door bible’. Designed by the new in-house marketing team at TruFrame, which is headed up by marketing manager Simon Box, the brochure has been designed to show off 43 different composite door designs, including stable and French door, along with matching side frame options. The marketing team have also developed a separate six page colour swatch which shows an actual foil swatch of the 16 different finishes available inside and out and a total of 11 different frame colours. The brochure commences with an exploded view of the solid timber core composite door, highlighting 13 key features which TruFrame believe makes it the perfect composite door. Patrick Firmager, marketing director of TruFrame commented: “We sent a small batch of these brochures out to our customers just before Christmas and we’ve received incredible feedback. Orders are now coming in quickly for the new composite doors and we’re now in a position to be able to offer them out to the wider market.” 01664 410140 THE ANTHRACITE GREY WAY »»FREEFOAM BUILDING Products is delighted to announce the launch of a new range of rainwater products in the contemporary colour Anthracite Grey.
