Entire range presented
Origin will be presenting its entire Origin Home Range, and sharing details of how it supports its partners to assist in business growth.
In addition to learning about Origin’s revolutionary online ordering system, Sale Safe, visitors can find out more about Origin’s marketing support, ‘Fitter Fitter’ installation training to encourage best practice, and sales training.
Visitors will also be given a sneak peek of a new Origin product that will be available to partners later in the year.
The Residential Door will be shown to the FIT Show audience for the first time. Originally unveiled to partners in September 2016, it can either be used as a front or garage door, combining security and aesthetics for an integrated front of house look.
The opportunity to offer customers a cohesive look, both inside and out, will increase profitability for installers by giving them a full systems offering alongside the doors and windows, Origin said.
Ben Brocklesby, Origin’s sales and marketing director, said: “Origin always produces a show-stopping stand, and this year is definitely no exception. We will be detailing the extensive range of services that we offer to our partners, which includes everything from marketing support through to installation training for our products. Our partners are part of the Origin family and we are constantly evolving to try to help them grow their businesses. Our unrivalled lead times, high quality products and top-quality service are all part of the ‘Origin package’, helping our partners to grow alongside us.”
Sale Safe is an online quoting and ordering system that was launched at last year’s show. Designed and built in-house by Origin, it has been created to improve the ordering process, as well as the organisation and administration of orders.
Origin will also be showcasing a selection from the new Residential Door range. Engineered for optimum energy efficiency, both the frame and sash feature have an advanced polyamide break to limit heat transfer. The panel is also made with a highly efficient Thermimax core.
The locks and barrels, through to the hinge design and aluminium composition, all combine to make for an ultra-secure system. Two different locking systems are available: a five-point multipoint lock or Origin’s eight-point multipoint locking system, with an offset spindle function.
Origin offers two barrel choices, both of which are 3-Star British Kitemarked, proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, offering homeowners a proven defense that is second to none.
Origin’s stand will also have its window system, which featres an internally and externally flush casement. Designed so the sash sits perfectly in line with the frame, and with no overlapping profile, it ensures a smart and elegant appearance.
The Origin Window is the only window in the UK that can be upgraded to incorprate Aerogel, which boasts the lowest thermal conductivity of any solid material. Using just 10mm of it in the thermal break of the window can boost thermal efficiency by up to 67%. When combined with the Origin Window, it delivers an A++ energy rating and certified 0.9 U-value.
Visitors will be able to see Origin’s ranges of made-to-measure blinds, catering for any requirement, with each blind offering a different effect, look and feel. Plus, Origin’s Bi-Fold Door will be on show.
“We will also be using FIT Show 2017 to unveil a brand new product, that we are confident is going to be a gamechanger within the marketplace,” Ben said “It allows us to offer even more to our partners, a one-stop-shop if you will, and we are really excited about it. I am not allowed to say anything more than that for now, but visitors will want to make sure they have the Origin stand on their FIT Show planner.”
