48 T H E F I T S H O W P R E V I E W ‘Original game changers’ of any material of its kind to gain BBA approval. On Stand A70, Eurocell will present its premium roofing range – one of which features a ‘stunning’ new tiled conservatory roof system. According to Eurocell, advanced design features make Equinox simpler and faster to install. A threeman installation team can reportedly complete an Equinox tiled roof in just two days, making it watertight on day one, so it can be safely left overnight. Equinox now comes with SlateSkin – described as a swift installation and highly realistic slateeffect GRP tile sheet. With multiple tile courses built in to each sheet, Eurocell says that SlateSkin reduces the time spent positioning and nailing tiles, with no compromise on build quality or aesthetics, while its light weight allows the pitch to be set anywhere from 50° – a pitch that Eurocell claims no other current tile system can currently achieve – to 350°. Guaranteed for 25 years, Eurocell says that the SlateSkin sheet-tiling system is not only durable but up to 50% faster to fit than other conservatory tile roofing methods. Beyond, Equinox and Slateskin, the stand will also showcase the www.ggpmag.com April 2016 temperature controlled glass in blue, neutral, bronze and clear as standard, with a ‘U’ value of 1.0W/m²K achievable. the FIT Show, explained David Parsons, technical director at Kombimatec. Fabricators visiting the FIT Show will also be able to see the 1HD variable angle and twin reverse butt welder, MGS460 versatile up stroke mitre saw, and improved 1HDX cross welder. Kombimatec to debut new AMC308 machining centre Kombimatec will debut its new AMC308 CNC machining centre at the FIT Show, a machine designed for working extruded aluminium and PVC profiles for a variety of applications, such as window and door systems, conservatories, partitioning and curtain walling. Kombimatec says the AMC308 provides ‘greater accuracy and finished quality’, is easy to operate with its colour touch screen control and graphic interface and, once the automatic cycle is initiated, is capable of completing the job on its own. Its three-axis CNC control is said to give ‘superb’ accuracy and repeatability, and the intelligent tool change feature automatically makes allowances if the tool cutter is changed to a different specification. It has four adjustable pneumatic clamps, electronic variable speed control up to 12,000rpm, 2,550mm longitudinal stroke, 180mm lateral and 140/90mm depth. “I think it important for exhibitors to show new products and for visitors to learn about any new innovations the market has to offer. This provides an opportunity to really benefit from investing valuable time into attending Skypod roof lantern range. Available in a range of colours, Skypod has a fixed 20° roof pitch and is supplied with self-cleaning, Eurocell has announced that it will focus in on four of its most popular products and systems across two stands at this year’s FIT Show – one dedicated to its window and door systems; and another for its Equinox tiled conservatory roofs and Skypod roof lanterns. According to Eurocell, stand AT13 is hosting the ‘star of the show’ in the form of the new Modus S, a mechanically jointed flush sash casement window, which combines modern materials with a traditional appearance – thanks to precisionengineered mouldings inside the frame which remove the need for tell-tale diagonal corner welds. Featuring a unique 75mm sixchamber profile system, the Modus range – billed as the ‘original game changer system’ when launched in 2014 – can reportedly achieve a ‘U’ value as low as 0.7 W/m²K. Said to be the first PVC-U window and door system in the UK to offer a 12-year guarantee, Modus casement windows were among the first to be awarded the new ‘A++’ WER. Also on display on the stand will be Aspect, Eurocell’s panoramic bifold door system. With ultra slim frames and over 30 unique features, many of them patented, Aspect is reportedly the first and only system
