The recent FIT Show was hailed as a resounding success for the Customade Group. The Group, which includes Customade and Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, welcomed dozens of visitors to the stand who were attracted by the range of products on show.
Andy Thomas, Customade’s sales and marketing director, says: “The inaugural FIT Show really demonstrated the enthusiasm and commitment that so many companies have in our industry. We were very pleased to have been a part of it and to have had such a level of interest in the products that we had on show.”
The Atlas roof drew crowds to the stand and the company is now busily following up hundreds of leads for it. The Atlas system utilises a 40mm rafter box profile to minimise the visible profile and maximise the amount of visible sky above. Tests carried out by the BBA have proven that the Atlas roof is the strongest and most thermally efficient aluminium roof available, offering a 33% greater windload and 25% greater snowload than its nearest competition. It is capable of achieving a U Value of 1.5 w/m2k.
Gareth Thomas, sales and marketing director at Atlas, said: “The roof certainly was a crowd pleaser at the show. Visitors were drawn to the benefits of the structure which is slimmer, stronger and more thermally efficient than any other system. We are very excited about the future of this product after the interest it created at the show and are looking forward to a very busy few months ahead.”
Customade’s suite of products included the Titan DS collection of windows, doors and composite doors and the Ascent VS – a softly curved vertical sliding window, which combines the visual appeal of a traditional timber product with the low maintenance benefits of PVCu. Customade’s Classic-al window was also on show. With its elegant, slim sightlines and an attractive, sculptured profile, the Classic-al 70mm aluminium window has been designed with reliability and aesthetics firmly in mind.
Customade was established in 1979 and fabricates the full Duraflex range of products to a consistently high standard. The company cleans and wraps every single PVCu window by hand and fully inspects it before it leaves the factory. Customade also uses a much heavier reinforcing section in its doors and windows to minimise problems after installation. The £20 million turnover Customade Group, which employs 230 people, also includes Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, the Bi-Fold Shop, Fineline Aluminium, which supplies designer architectural aluminium products with very slim sight lines, and Hourglass Seal, which manufactures glass and sealed units.
