Supporting brand partners

By Window Ware.

Nothing brings fenestration brands and people together quite like FIT show. It’s the perfect place to showcase innovation, make new business connections and compare notes with other companies all operating in this ever-changing industry.

Window Ware was out in force to support their brand partners, get the low-down on the latest developments in the door and window market, and pre-empt the next big thing to strengthen our product range. As one of the UK’s largest hardware providers, stocking thousands of products from multiple brands, it was no mean feat visiting each and every one of our suppliers’ stands. You might even have spotted some familiar Window Ware faces showcasing our sought-after Regal Hardware on the Window Widgets stand.

Colleagues from almost every department took their turn to walk the exhibition floor, including marketing, sales, finance, customer service and technical support. Window Ware encourages its staff to attend these kinds of events, because of their excellent learning potential. Colleagues get to see products in action, talk to suppliers face-to-face, meet up with customers, and gain useful industry insights. This all helps to build well-rounded, practical knowledge all the better to support customers with.

Window Ware is the place to source many of the must-have new products and hardware innovations you saw at FIT Show 2019. We’ve selected just a few of our FIT Show favourites, all of which come backed by sales support, technical know-how and a reliable delivery service.

Regal Hardware impressed visitors with beautiful, authentic-looking heritage hardware designed to work with modern key-locking convenience on both 70mm profiles and flush sash casements.

Maco launched its new MKV window lock and presented its A-TS self-locking door lock with its new day latch feature. The lock is automatically engaged in three places by two hooks and a bolt when the door is pulled closed to achieve a more secure, quieter, weathertight seal.

Glazpart showcased its glazing packers plus, the compact Link Vent Mk2, with its expanding range of colours and finishes, plus optimised airflow capable of meeting the latest building regulations.

Avantis demonstrated its multi-point door locks for PVCU and composite doors, which lead the way with some of the strongest SBD-accredited and PAS24-approved reinforcements in the industry. It also launched Kubu-equipped locks, the easy-fit, high-volume method for fabricators to get doors and windows ‘set-for-smart’. Once activated, homeowners can use the system to check the status of their door lock via their phone. Kubu will be available for wide-spread distribution from Window Ware later this year.

GT Window Products showed off its range of clever and cost-effective fast-fit hinge protectors, compression and glass retention devices – essential kit for creating PAS24 certified doors and windows.

RW Simon exhibited a selection of natural ventilation products, including Duco window louvres, Framevents, sound-reducing acoustic trickle vents and Airstrip Glazed-in Ventilators.

Konig UK proved just how quick and easy it is to renovate discoloured or scratched plastic with its edging pens, PVCU repair kits, and lacquer sprays, available in an impressive range of colours.

You can find all these products and more at Window Ware, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of window and door hardware, factory tools, fixings and consumables. Our service excellence, along with commitment to delivering 97% of our range with next-day delivery, was recognised last year with an SME Bedfordshire Business Award and a G18 Award nomination for Customer Care Initiative of the Year.
