ALUMINIUM 20 Year Warranty on Sealed Units Installers break through the roof with extended range » » CELEBRATIONS HAVE BEEN taking place at Customade Group as it toasts to an incredible first year since the launch of REAL Aluminium. In the space of just 12 months, REAL Aluminium has become one of the industry’s fastest growing brands and now Customade Group has expanded the range of aluminium products to include a new flat rooflight. The Flat Rooflight, which brings performance and maximum light in a clean, minimalistic design, complements the industry-leading, fitter-friendly range of aluminium windows, doors and lantern roofs available from REAL Aluminium. Introduced to satisfy the growing trend for flat glazed roof products, it features a 27% slimmer overall frame height to achieve a flush glazed look with minimal internal and external sightlines. It also delivers an outstanding complete roof (glass and frame), without the need for triple glazing. The Flat Rooflight is the best looking and the highest thermally performing double glazed flat rooflight on the market thanks to its bespoke structural PVC-u internal core and sleek aluminium internal and external capping. Fitted flush to the internal plaster, the rooflight appears frameless from below to create the illusion of an open roof space. 74 » OCT 2017 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M Specialist IGU and conservatory roof supplier, Double R Glass & Roofing Systems is pleased to offer at no extra cost, a 20-year warranty on its insulated glass units, providing a strong downstream sales tool for its fabricator and installer customers alike. » » IAN SIMS, MANAGING DIRECTOR of Double R, explains: “A 20-year warranty is a great sales tool for installers selling to the homeowner, because what better assurance of quality than the promise to replace the unit if it fails at any time in the next 20 years? Similarly, for fabricators, the ability to offer this warranty to installer customers is a valuable tool to have in their armoury. “We are able to offer this 20-year warranty, at no extra cost, through our membership of Edgetech’s Super Spacer Dealership scheme and as long as our customers sign up to the free fabricator or installer Dealership programmes as appropriate, they can benefit from the extended warranty. By signing up to the scheme they also have access to a whole host of additional marketing materials too, but whether they use that or not, they can still enjoy the benefit of the warranty.” MORLEY GLASS & GLAZING EXPANDS PRODUCTION WITH £700,000 INVESTMENT » » MORLEY GLASS & GLAZING, WHICH specialises in manufacturing Uni-Blind® sealed units with ScreenLine® integral blinds inside, has invested £700,000 to increase production capacity at its factory in Leeds.
