aztec master fitter

The most fitter-friendly roof on the market proved its claims at FIT Show 2013.

Aztec Conservatory Roof Systems, which has always claimed to be the most innovative, quickest and easiest to fabricate and install, put ‘its money where its mouth is’ by sponsoring the 2013 Master Fitter Challenge.

Entrants had just 90 minutes to build and fit the 3m x 3m Edwardian roof from scratch. Each of the teams completed the challenge- designed and set by assessors GQA- either within the tight time, or just minutes over, with one finalist achieving it single-handed!

Commented Master Fitter Challenger Scott Higgs of Chesterfield-based Polar Windows, “I was pleasantly surprised how simple to put together the Aztec roof was: I had never installed the system before and cannot believe how fitter-friendly the roof is. Manufacturers make all sorts of claims about their products, but Aztec’s roof certainly lives up to its reputation.”

“We’ve always said our roof is the most fitter-friendly on the market,” added Aztec managing director Tim Franks. “None of the teams had fitted an Aztec roof before; the fact they almost all achieved it within the time reinforces how easy and logical our system is.”

The success of the Challenge helped make FIT Show 2013 a positive start to Aztec’s second decade as the leading independent conservatory roof system company in the UK. The show also saw the company unveil its latest innovation- a pre-stressed structural ring beam, which enables creation of a span up to 5.7m without the requirement for bulky, unsightly steel sections. The section has been developed specifically to facilitate the inclusion of bi-fold doors to conservatories, but is also capable of providing adequate support for veranda style roofs and gazebo structures.
