FIT Show Preview Spilka Stand 260 Spilka has been well known in the UK window industry since the 1980s with a reputation for offering outstanding technical products. Frank Fay, national sales manager, said: “Spilka has had a very strong market presence in the UK since the 1980s and we continue to enjoy a great relationship with all players in the industry. We are best known for our reversible hinges of course, and our most recent version the ‘Opus’ has been really well receieved for its technical qualitites and functionality. What people are perhaps less aware of, and the reason we are going to the FIT Show in June, is to show a range of other products which we believe are perfect for the UK market, and which will add to our reputation as a supplier of great products in a really positive way. “For us this is a really exciting time; we know that the UK window and door industry is a genuinely technical industry, always looking for new products to offer its customers; the new product ranges we are going to show will certainly be of interest”. www.spilka.com Total Glass Stand 149 Total Glass, one of the UK’s leading PVC-U and aluminium fabricators, returns to this year’s FIT Show with a new stand showcasing its full product range and ‘one-stop shop’ services for installers, whatever the size of their business. Trade sales manager, Phill Cresswell, says its decision to return to Telford followed huge success at the inaugural show, which generated new business from both potential and existing customers. “As a dedicated show aimed very much at installers, it is the perfect platform for us to present our comprehensive portfolio of windows, doors, conservatories and much more. Our ‘onestop shop’ approach means we can offer our customers everything they need, including online ordering and an instant window quotation system, enabling them to get on with whatthey’re good at – selling,” explained Phill. “As well as quality products at competitive prices, we can offer installers bespoke business support packages and technical installation advice that helps them to grow thriving and successful businesses.” 82 May 2014 Among the products on Total’s stand will be windows, composite doors and bi-folding doors in a range of colours and styles, allowing visitors to see a selection of the available options. www.totalglass.com Trojan Stand 252 Trojan’s group managing director, Tony Chadwick, said: “I can strongly recommend a visit to our stand. Not only will visitors get to see a brand new and genuinely revolutionary window and door hardware range, they’ll also be able to see highlights from our best-selling products. While the new range might take centre stage, there’s no doubt the other products on the stand will be attracting attention, too. Trojan will be showcasing its three latest products, the Sparta 3 handle, the Patriot Plus HD door hinge and Pegasus high security window lock. All three products have been designed to help you tie up less capital in stock, releasing cash into your business. Also on display, will be the stainless steel range which has taken the market by storm since its launch. Comprising t-hinges, handles, letterplates, door knockers, door numbers and numerals, every item in the range comes with a 25 year anti-corrosion guarantee. www.trojan-hardware.com Truedor Stand 234 Truedor, the brand new composite door range from IG Doors, designed specifically for the homeowner market, is set to make a grand entrance at this years’ FIT Show. Truedor is an entirely new range of doors with over 30 exciting new styles and more to come, and over 50 glass patterns, all available as standard. While IG Doors has been manufacturing doors since the 1970s and is currently the largest manufacturer of composite doors in the UK, Truedor has been developed as an entirely new range, distinct from those which it currently supplies; it is the company’s intention to get their products to the homeowner by working closely with the trade installer and fabricator sectors. Richard Kirman, sales and marketing manager for IG Doors Trade Division, explained: “Where we believe we are going to be radically different from our competitors is by targeting the homeowner from the outset. “At the FIT Show, we will be looking to talk to trade installers who want to work with us in the long term. I would urge all installers to take time to come and see for themselves the entirety of our offer and range, and to learn about the outstanding customer focussed support package developed specifically for, including a 24/7 answering service with people who will be able to answer your calls any time of day”. www.inonthesecret.com Universal Arches Stand 118 Universal Arches is set to celebrate its 20th year in business at the FIT Show, along with promoting its exclusive relationships with Residence 9 and Solidor. Thanks to its co-sponsorship of the lanyards, the Universal Arches stand was the busiest at the 2013 show, with 2,087 people attempting to open the arched composite door on the stand for a chance to win an iPad mini. The company will again be promoting a competition on the last day to win a Playstation 4. Product development and quality will again be a focus on the stand, along with its 20 year celebration, making Universal Arches the largest and longest established company in the UK bending sector. Universal Arches is the exclusive and sole partner for shaped Residence 9 frames and for arched Solidor composite doors and as such, is the only bending company to carry their respective product warranties. These products, along with an exciting new range of colours to replicate the heritage colours of Farrow & Ball will feature heavily on the stand. www.universalarches.com Continued on page 84
