Scotland’s unique specialist distributor to the glass and glazing and door and window sectors, Abacus Agents, has added new Rapierstar high performance fastener options to its range to help customers upgrade the quality of their manufacture and installation.

Serving customers across Scotland and the north of England, Abacus Agents is unique in offering a range of products that covers all aspects of glass and glazing, as well as door and window manufacturing, installation and repair.

Operating from its Dundee and Glasgow branches, the family owned and managed company has established a loyal and growing customer base since its formation in 1991, driven by its flexibility to go the extra mile to provide whatever a customer requires.

Abacus Agents’ range of Rapierstar fasteners for joiners, window and door manufacturers and installers, which already includes StarPVCU window screws, StarTurn woodscrews – including in stainless steel – and StarPin polymer headed pins and nails, is now boosted with StarFix plug-free frame fixings and additional specialist fixings such as baypole screws.

Bob Sturrock, Managing Director of Abacus Agents said: “We’ve built our success on being responsive, flexible and restricting our range to a narrow range of suppliers. This means we can offer a complete range of products for all areas of the glass and glazing industries, and high quality fixings that enable our customers to achieve the best result have to be part of this mix.

“Our existing range of Rapierstar fasteners has always proved extremely popular, which speaks volumes, so expanding this means customers can take full advantage of all that this quality fastener brand offers.”

Paul McAuley, Technical Consultant at Rapierstar adds: “We’re delighted that Abacus Agents has introduced an expanded range of Rapierstar fasteners and look forward to supporting their team and their customers to get the most out of our products. There is a strong demand throughout Scotland’s window and door sector for high quality fixings, so it is fantastic that Abacus Agents are now making it easier for fabricators and installers to access these products.”
