The breadth of the VEKA range of products well and truly paid off in a recent job, specifying five systems.
Glazerite Windows Ltd were the obvious choice for this unique project which specified five separate door and window systems within one house!
“The job needed casement windows, a black foiled PVC Back door, a patio door, bi-folds and an unusual floor length tilt/turn window to match the bi-folds,” said Andy, of Worksop-based AJ Joinery, “I’ve worked with Glazerite for a few years now so I knew I could get everything from the one place but without them, I might have had to go to two or three just to do the one job.”
The true benefit of being a Network VEKA Approved Installer also shone through, as Andy was even given the original lead completely free from VEKA’s own web-based domestic lead generation system. Glazerite pride themselves on working with our installers throughout the process and in this project were able to show Andy the correct installation procedure for bi-folds, he added: “I’d never done a bi-fold before but they were a big help and I’ll definitely be doing more of them in future.”
Altogether, the job entailed a three-pane Imagine bi-fold, two-pane patio doors, a black foil on white PVCu door, FS70 casement windows and the tilt/turn panoramic window – all VEKA-based. The bi-fold and patio doors were manufactured in Glazerite’s new dedicated production facility by staff specially trained to work on these product lines. All had matching suited hardware from Fab and Fix and carried a ten-year product warranty.
Glazerite’s Peter Smith said the unusual demands of this job highlighted the benefits of choosing a fabricator that offers VEKA’s entire product range: “Because Andy could get everything from a single source – and one with VEKA Approved Fabricator status – all he needed to do was measure up, put in his order and then get on with the job. Glazerite was able to give him the technical support he needed and he had all the benefits of being an Approved Installer, including the free lead that gave him the job in the first place.
“The need for the five different products here was of course an extreme case but having the full VEKA range has proved a great benefit to very many of our installer partners.”
Glazerite is VEKA’s largest trade fabricator in the UK as well as a long-standing Network VEKA member. It offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants and Greater Manchester as well as its South West distribution hub in Bristol serving South Wales and The West of England.
