Savings passed on

OnLevel has expanded its fixings range and improved pricing from July.

“All our testing has been extensively carried out with Fischer Fixings over many years,” Frank Verhey, OnLevel’s technical manager, said, “and our mutual understanding of achieving operational optimum performance while improving cost effectiveness has increased significantly as we have developed products. Our wider choice of fixings and increased buying power means that today we have an unrivalled combination of efficient and economic solutions for every substrate.”

OnLevel now offers fixings for balustrade and juliet balconies to concrete, masonry, wood, aluminium, steel and PVC, all detailed in its new catalogue that was published in June. 

MD Gary Dean said: “It is often overlooked that the correct fixing is as important as the profile design itself to the overall performance of a balustrade system; many companies do not even make it clear which fixing to which substrate was used to achieve their testing results in their literature, often because when calculated correct fixings can cost the equivalent of the profile itself for many systems.

“We think this is a huge issue because incorrect fixing means some systems out in the market simply will not perform to the claimed standard. 

“At OnLevel we not only detail the correct fixing in our independent test reports but also throughout our catalogue so customers can buy a complete system with confidence. Pricing was a problem for some users and encouraged them to use low cost but incorrect fixings.

“Therefore, we have significant renegotiated our prices and passed on savings to customers so they can now buy a complete system that’s economical but also works at the correct performance level.”
