Eco Frame Windows in Bradford has become the first fabricator in West Yorkshire to start manufacturing in the new thermally efficient five chamber REHAU TOTAL70C profiles.
The company, which produces around 140 frames per week, says that the opportunity to differentiate its product range from its competitors was key to its decision to switch.
Eco Frame had fabricated in the original REHAU TOTAL70C three chamber profiles since it was set up in 2010 but the introduction of the five chamber alternative last year prompted the company to review its product offering.
Managing Director James Shillingford says: “Using the new five chamber profiles, we can produce A rated windows more easily and cost effectively than previously and crucially we can offer our trade customers something new in REHAU.
“We have been impressed by the ease of manufacturing and the performance of the new profiles and we’re starting our own marketing campaign to gain the maximum benefit from being the first with this new energy efficient solution.”
Eco Frame Windows has been approved to use the BFRC SEL licence scheme to produce its own Window Energy Ratings labels for customers via the REHAU online thermal calculator at www.rehauanswers.com. Using the calculator, the company can instantly work out the most cost effective combination of frame, glass and spacer bar for every contract.
James Shillingford adds: “The new profiles have lots of advantages for our customers and I believe present us with lots of opportunities to win new business.”
All of the ancillary profiles within the REHAU TOTAL70 system are compatible across the entire range which means Eco Frame can easily integrate the new profiles into its existing manufacturing set up whilst also minimising its stock holding requirements
