30% growth

Romford based Residence Collection fabricator Window Tech Trade is celebrating a year of growth using Timberweld. Window Tech Trade is the only dedicated fabricator in the UK using Timberweld for R9, R7 and R² windows and doors.

The flush sash market is growing rapidly and forecast to become a mainstream window. Independent research of the flush sash market, undertaken for Timberweld last year by MRA Research, reports that ten years from now nearly half of the fabricators interviewed see flush sashes becoming as important as standard casement windows.

Robert Wallis, managing director of Window Tech Trade, said: “Creating the timber butt-joint effect on both sides of the window is a big plus for installers. Timberweld enables installers to install the frame as usual and then glaze it rather than having to install fully glazed glass-bonded frames. Sealed corners also make the product look better and create an air tight unit. The main benefit of Timberweld is ease of manufacture and speed of installation as it eliminates production problems and is extremely cost effective when you scale up. Our manufacturing output has increased by approximately 30% using Timberweld.”
