PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS ALUPLAST INCREASES UK FOIL OFFERING WITH AGATE GREY » » ALUPLAST HAS ADDED AGATE GREY to its foils offer, bringing new subtlety to its extensive colour palette. The German systems house has one of Europe’s widest foil and colour ranges.

He says that the one stop shop approach offered by trade fabricators such as Euroglaze suits the requirements of some installers much better. Martin says: “Too many installers steer away from buying vertical sliders because they don’t want the hassle and the overhead of having to select and deal with a different fabricator when they might only get one or two heritage type enquiries in a year. “But that means they’re missing out on new business and the chance to differentiate themselves from competitors, when they could single source all the products they need from just one supplier.” Euroglaze offers one of the most comprehensive range of REHAU products in the UK, manufacturing REHAU Heritage vertical sliders, fully reversible windows, sliding patios and even fire rated windows and doors alongside standard casements. “Customers don’t have to compromise on quality when they buy from Euroglaze. We make top quality REHAU vertical sliders at a very competitive price.” MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE » » THE KEY PERFORMANCE FEATURES of the CP 130 sliding door from leading aluminium systems company Reynaers extend far beyond its stunning exterior.
