Rapidly growing window, door and glazed extension manufacturer Abcell has strengthened its supply partnership with Rapierstar to ensure it can deliver consistently high quality finished products across its expanded range.

The company, which recently added Deceuninck PVCu windows and doors plus Truedor composite doors to its portfolio, has established a unique position in the market through a product range that supports forward-thinking installers serving a changing residential market.

Rapierstar has collaborated with Carl F Groupco and Eurocell to help long established and highly respected South Coast installer Newview to launch its new window and door manufacturing business, Newframe.

A new state-of-the-art 15,000 sq. ft PVCu window and door factory in Worthing will produce around 500 units every week using Eurocell systems, plus Newframe’s own new range of composite doors branded ‘Coastal Composites’ to service their growing New Build client list plus aviation noise contracts.

Liniar PVC-U window and door manufacturers can achieve the highest levels of quality and reliable long term performance in every finished product by following the latest fastener guidance from Rapierstar.

We have published three Recommended Fixings Manuals (RFMs) which provide detailed guidance on which fasteners to use in all aspects of Liniar window and door assembly, including its popular bi-fold doors. All three are available to download free of charge in the Info Point.

Rapierstar has helped golfers who are set to compete in GM Fundraising’s upcoming GMF Cup to prepare for the challenge by hosting a practice day at the prestigious Astbury Golf Club in South Cheshire.

Following the success of a previous similar event back in 2018, the Rapierstar team wanted to make a special contribution to GM Fundraising’s efforts during this Covid-affected year by arranging a day for GMF Cup competitors to finally get together and reach their A game in time for the big forthcoming event in Portugal.

Technical guidance from Rapierstar could play a vital role in improving end-user satisfaction and reducing negative consumer feedback, given the findings of a recent survey by consumer champions Which?

The Which? survey of nearly 3,500 buyers of double-glazing in the past decade found that the most common faults in installed windows and doors stem from poor hardware choices or assembly. Issues to do with locking systems, hinges and friction stays account for most of the problems that develop – substantiating for the first time anecdotal evidence reported by many installers.

Producing windows and doors fit for the UK’s harshest environments is all in a day’s work for Inverness-based Cairngorm Group, whose focus on using only high-quality components throughout its manufacturing, assembly and installation is paying dividends as it keeps its long-term growth plans on track.

The company serves retail, trade and commercial customers across the north of Scotland from its 2500 sq. m HQ and main manufacturing plant in Inverness, plus additional sites in Thurso and Elgin. In addition to its PVCu window and door operation, the group includes two glass processing businesses – Inverness Glass and Grampian Glass – as well as divisions providing kitchens and solar panels.

Comprehensive ongoing support by Rapierstar, including fastener stock management and guidance on correct fastener application, is helping The Glazerite UK Group Ltd to maintain its position as the UK’s leading trade manufacturer of VEKA and Halo windows and doors.

Glazerite’s strong track record of delivering finished uPVC products to a consistently high standard across its complete range of different window and door styles, has at is core a commitment to strong supply chain partnerships with market leaders in their respective fields.

Leading window and door manufacturer for the retail and commercial sectors, Nova Group, has partnered with Rapierstar to strengthen the quality and performance of its PVCu windows and doors, and introduce an assured fire rated door solution.

The Altrincham based company, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, provides a wide range of PVCu and Aluminium solutions to retail trade installers, the commercial sector and social housing clients, including conservatories and secondary window systems. As a provider of both frames and sealed units, Nova Group has full control over supply which means it can apply strict quality control and put continuous improvement at the heart of its strategy.
