INDUSTRYNEWS FREEFOAM PRODUCTS IN INSPIRATIONAL PROJECT Freefoam Building Products have been used on an inspirational project by Barratt David Wilson Homes to interest children in construction. Fascia, soffit and guttering, provided by Freefoam customer Northern Building Plastics, made an essential contribution to a small scale home built for pupils of Scholes Village Primary School, Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. Using the Barratt Homes ‘Young Guns’ team to design, procure and manage the project, the house was completed in June 2014, in time for the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The ‘Learning House’ will benefit the social, personal and emotional development of pupils by creating an informative learning experience. Freefoam’s products for the building industry in Ireland, the UK and mainland Europe offer a fully integrated suite of products to provide the complete roofline solution, suitable for any size of property and designed to work together so colours will match exactly. All are covered by the Freefoam Lifetime Guarantee and have extra UV Protection. Colin St John, UK General Manager, commented: “We’re delighted to have supplied materials for this project. Freefoam products are guaranteed for 50 years so will still be going strong for the centenary!” A BEAUTIFUL FINISH FROM FRAMEXPRESS Choice and performance once again proved the winning formula for leading window, door and conservatory fabricator, frameXpress Ltd on a recent refurbishment project on the Hertfordshire border. The Irish Oak coloured foil was the product of choice for all windows and French doors at this impressive private home. frameXpress won the £30,000 contract due to the high performance standards offered including A Ratings and SBD accreditations. Maintaining a traditional appearance was important to ensure a period style throughout the property including all windows, doors and a composite front door which needed to be manufactured in their chosen colour and made with thumbturn bolt security to add reassurance and reduce the amount of hardware required to secure the door when closed. As a high specification project the very latest in thermally-efficient products was stipulated – this was pivotal in order to win the contract. The property has been substantially improved with better soundproofing and a considerable reduction in energy bills since the installation thanks to the thermallyefficient FS70 mm units and doors from the frameXpress range. It’s value has also increased considerably.

We appreciated the fact that these van backs were offered as a subsidised service so we took the opportunity to update all four of our vans.
