New fastener guidance

Rapierstar has developed a new Recommended Fixings Manual (RFM) for all Eurocell systems.

The publication of the detailed new guide is the culmination of over many years of close technical collaboration between the two companies, which extends into support for testing.

As a result, every window and door tested in Eurocell’s learning and development centre, including new product developments, are assembled using Rapierstar fasteners to set a consistently high standard that fabricators can now replicate.

Available to download in the Info Point section at, the new RFM is designed to help Eurocell fabricators achieve the highest quality, best performing windows and doors. With an easy-to-read new layout, colour coding makes it easier to identify screws for insertion into profiles and steel reinforced sections, as well as other screw types – all from Rapierstar’s StarPVCU range.

The latest range of profiles is covered, including Modus and Logik systems, and Rapierstar will update the RFM to add new profiles as soon as they become available to Eurocell fabricators to keep it fully up to date and relevant.

Mark Furness, Rapierstar sales and marketing director, said: “Eurocell systems are extremely popular in the industry for good reason but using the wrong fasteners during window and door manufacturing will prevent them from getting the best from these advanced profiles.”
