PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS TRIPLE THE CHOICE » » SPECTUS CUSTOMERS now have more choices than ever in triple glazing solutions, with the launch of a new bead to accommodate 36mm glazing for its popular Elite 70 system. The addition now gives fabricators and installers not only three options for triple glazing. Customers can now choose from 36mm, 40mm and the highest-spec 44m in the Elite 70 system, along with the existing 36mm and 40mm in the Elite 63 system. “Spectus fabricators can now have every triple glazing option that they may ever need – as well as all the choices in double glazing – and all from one single system,” said Sales Director Paul Lindsay. “That, of course, means they can keep stockholding and cash-flow issues to an absolute minimum. But it also means they can fabricate to any specified WER up to the maximum A++, and because everything is from one fully- coordinated system, they can choose to combine triple and double glazing in a single installation. “Demand for triple glazing is still growing and a customer should be able to offer it with confidence and without compromising on quality or style. The options from Spectus mean they can do just that.” Certification Achieved » » ALTERNATIVE WINDOWS has achieved certification with Bluesky for the manufacture of windows and doorsets to BS7412 and PAS 24, and IGUs to EN 1279. “When choosing a certification body, credibility, service and value for money were all important considerations for us,” says Nigel Fletcher, Director at Alternative Windows. “Certification is much more than just having a certificate to put on the wall - we need a company that can quickly react to our needs and keep us up to date with the latest requirements. “Bluesky Certification is UKAS accredited, recognised by Secured by Design, and their staff are clearly knowledgeable in doors, windows and glass. They also have an innovative approach with an emphasis on customer service, which fits well with our business. Having worked with Simon Beer over many years we had a good idea of what we might expect from Bluesky and the transition has so far worked very well.” Simon Beer, Managing Director of Bluesky Certification says: “When we launched Bluesky Certification we felt that there was a gap in the market for a credible certification body that was prepared to differentiate itself through the service provided to its customers. It is good to see that companies such as Alternative Windows consider the quality of service provided as a key factor when choosing their certification body.” Derelict orphanage transformed » » A D
