30 | DECEMBER 2019 Products Read online at ENDURAWOOD ON THE VERGE OF UK LAUNCH Euramax Solutions to launch range of natural-looking aluminium components. Euramax Solutions, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of PVCu windows and doors, has announced the launch of its new unique range of exterior cladding and outdoor living products for the con- struction market. Endurawood components are made of solid aluminium yet have the beautiful appearance of natural timber. Barnsley-based Euramax Solutions has been manufacturing PVCu windows and doors for over 65 years and supplies to the modular, new build, holiday home, DIY and retail sectors across the UK. It is now able to offer its commercial clients a choice of aluminium products from deck- ing, wall cladding, gates, pergolas, balus- trades, handrails and more, all with the unique Endurawood appearance. Euramax managing director, Nick Cowley: “We are constantly looking for new ways to widen and improve on the products and service we offer to our customers. Endurawood not only gives our customers a high-quality durable product but also a wider design potential. We’re looking forward to working with our customers on their Endurawood projects and seeing the wide variety of ways it will be put to use.” With a comprehensive range of finish- es available, the Endurawood range has all the style of wood with all the benefits of aluminium. Environmentally friendly, aluminium is a recyclable material and re-smelting only uses five per cent of the energy originally needed to produce the product. It’s benefits as a cladding material are huge, thanks to its Class A1 fire rated status and lightweight properties. As well as being resistant to corrosion, Endurawood is also stain and scratch resistant to give it longevity that is vital in the construction industry. Unlike natural wood and steel grades, Endurawood is freeze and frost resistant as well as being non-slip, which makes it ideal for decked areas. Already extensively used throughout the US, Asia, Australasia and Europe, Endur- awood has a well-established supply chain and can offer full technical back-up and support to its customers. The range will also present a particular opportunity to the modular and offsite construction indus- tries, as companies in each sector look to expand their existing portfolios. ‘The Finest VS In The Industry’: Quickslide’s Legacy Is The Result Of ‘An Exceptional’ Partnership With Spectus Quickslide, the company that popularised high quality PVC-U replacement vertical sliding box sash windows in the UK home improvement sector, is now offering the Legacy VS window to further extend the company’s penetration of the Heritage sector. Additionally, Quick- slide’s highly evolved commitment to customer service will also provide an additional edge in the mar- ket. “We have taken a great deal of time and care to add a VS that further extends the quality and performance offered by our established Renaissance VS, strengthen- ing the position of Quick- slide as a UK market leader for replacement vertical sliding box sash windows,” says Adrian. “Every element of frame fabrication and finishing is carried out in- house at Quickslide by a team of people that under- stand what they are doing and the importance of that to our customers. But we need a superb product to which we can add that Quickslide ‘difference’. We are delighted to be working with Spectus and a team of people that share our passion and commitment to what we do.” Legacy is offered as a ‘true heritage’ window and one that builds upon the established credentials that the Spectus VS has long enjoyed with a reputation for being the benchmark for PVC-U vertical sliding windows. Quickslide has paid great attention to the exceptional detailing of authentic period aesthetics, which are the most impor- tant criteria for buyers of this style of window. Key aesthetic features include the authentic ovolo shape to the frame, bead, sash and cill with a wide range of de- tail customisations including Georgian bars, run through sash horns, external weath- er bars and a deep bottom rail together with flush gas- kets that emulate traditional glazing, all of which have been researched to ensure authenticity. The period features, including Quickslide’s choice of standard weld, seamless Graf weld and fully mechanical timber look butt joints, belie up-to-the-minute glazing performance that provides Window Energy Ratings of Band A when glazed with 24mm IGUs, whilst the latest colour-matched wool pile seals ensure that every single window is perfectly finished. The system also adds a further four stand- ard woodgrains to Quick- slide’s extensive offer, in- cluding Agate Grey, English Oak, Nut Tree and Smooth Grey. The company’s in- house colour-bonding and bending facilities will fur- ther extend the possibilities offered by Legacy.
