‘Flying the flag’ for components

Extrudaseal has announced that it will join a number of leading window and door companies on the PIGS Product Pavilion, which forms a new addition to the Doors, Windows & Glass Show, at this year’s Build Show held at the NEC from 9-11 October.

Chris Byers, managing director at Extrudaseal, said: “For us, it’s really important to fly the flag for component product manufacturers and highlight the significant advantages that small changes in product specification can deliver.

“In our area of the market – window and door gasket supply – this includes significantly improved through-life performance and cost reductions of anywhere between 30 and 40%.”

Manufacturing gaskets for a wealth of systems, including amongst others Smart, AluK, Metaltech, Senior and Ikon, amongst others, Extrudaseal says that it manufactured more than 20,000km of aluminium door gaskets in the last year.

Its product offer is said to be available in more than 1,000 RAL colours. According to Extrudaseal, this allows fabricators and installers to offer a colour-matched gasket and a ‘perfect match’ to the increasingly diverse colour options being offered by window companies.

“If you’re taking window and door design to its logical conclusion, colour-matching gaskets of windows and doors is key. Colour is the single biggest influence in current window and door design.

“Carrying that through to the gasket so that it melts away into the frame has a disproportionate and transformative influence on window and door aesthetics.”
