32 T H E F I T S H O W P R E V I E W FIT Show backs kids’ charities The FIT Show will be throwing its fundraising efforts behind two key charities, in a bid to add to the thousands raised by window industry people working for good causes in previous years. Efforts at this year’s FIT Show will once again be dedicated to raising funds for the Hope House children’s hospices, which has become the de facto industry charity through the continued efforts of industry veteran, Gary Morton, and his GM Fundraising vehicle. Guests at the FIT Show gala dinner will be encouraged to dig deep whilst the GM team will be attending The FIT Show throughout to accept donations. In a further effort, following a similar fundraiser last year, The FIT Show is a headline sponsor of the 2016 MADi Rally, a ‘pay-to-play’ invitation event that involves around 50 drivers and co-drivers in ‘modern classic’ cars who will wend their way to Monaco and back. The 2015 run raised £130,000 for the Anthony Nolan Trust.

According to Packexe, it is already established in the industry with Packexe Handy Wrap – described as a versatile, high quality, wrapping tool. It is said to be strong, durable and has no adhesive so sticks only to itself and is easily removable. From the Packexe Protection portfolio, Packexe Glass & Glazing protects all types of glass and glazing with a low-tack adhesive but strong film that can be used to protect installations. It is also said to be suitable for use during manufacturing and delivery, preventing surface dirt and scratches. Packexe says its range of protection films are ideal during installation and maintenance, protecting floors and surfaces from dust, spills and scratches. Packexe Smash, which has ‘extra strong’ adhesive, can reportedly be used when removing old, unwanted glass or glazing, such as glass splashbacks in kitchens and bathrooms. The strong adhesive on the film adheres to glass, and strengthens it ready for removal, keeping the glass pieces together if they break. Packexe also produces low-tack self-adhesive labels, which are said to be strong enough to stay on glass for months at a time without leaving residue on removal. A whole range of secure and easily removable profile tapes are available, offering reliable protection through the manufacturing and fitting process. www.ggpmag.com April 2016
