INDUSTRYNEWS Price Increase Announced Ultraframe has announced a price increase to take effect from 1st August 2013. Sales and Marketing Director, Joe Martoccia explains: “In an effort to support our network partners we have absorbed rising costs whilst continuing to offer our customers very cost competitive prices. This period has coincided with significant investment in new, groundbreaking systems and market leading dealer support packages. Together, this combination has resulted in many of our partners being able to stay ahead of the competition whilst still offering the best range of glazed home extensions systems and conservatories.” “From 1st August 2013 we are introducing a modest 4% increase on a number of Ultraframe, Wendland and Quantal products, whilst at Manufacturers & Suppliers of Lead Free Windows, Doors & Conservatories Window Ener D&I Window A Reg No. 0504-006 ‘significant investment in new, groundbreaking systems’ the same time continuing to accelerate our product innovation and development to the benefit of all our network partners.” gy Rating Date.19/04/2011 PVC-U Caseme nt A Rated Window Solutions Ltd g Register Thermal Ratin -10 to < 0 -20 to -10 -30 to -20 -50 to -30 -70 to -50 -70 + Energy Rating of energy consumpt 0+ ion A Fully Glazed A Rated Windows • Planitherm Total+ or Planibel A • Free delivery • Over 40 colour foils available • Kommerling gold profile • Same day quotations • 5-7 day turn round based on a is a relative rating Energy Rating UK location.

Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief executive commented, “The recent figures are both unsurprising and uninspiring. To show that only 37 window or glazing installations have taken place out of almost 82,000 installations under ECO in the first quarter clearly shows that ECO is not a complete solution with its very low level of funding available for replacement windows. “The recent report shows that replacement windows and glazing are only recommended in 5% of the Green Deal assessments because of the limitations of the RdSAP software used by Assessors.” Another real concern for the glazing industry has to be the ineffectiveness so far of the Green Deal cashback scheme for glazing. Out of a total of 968 cashback vouchers that have been paid to 16th June following installation of measures, none have been for windows/glazing.
