Glazpart Considers it a TruFit for Trade Counters

The newly revised BS8213-4:2016 code of practice for fitting windows and external door sets now includes window installation tape alongside traditional wet sealant methods.

It’s a case of right place, right time as TruFit®, expanding foam edge tape from Edgetech UK, is added to the Glazpart Trade Counter product range.

Supplying trade counters throughout the country with window installation essentials, in its 35 years Glazpart has continuously developed its range to meet the increasing demands on window installers.

“The rise in popularity of trade counters has given Glazpart the opportunity to supply them with essential, top-quality consumables for window installation companies,” says Dean Bradley, Sales and Marketing Manager at Glazpart.

“We’ve had an impressive response to TruFit, especially as the regulations to include foam window installation tapes happened so recently.

People are sometimes hesitant to change the traditional ways that they’ve tried and tested for years to something that is so different. But once installers start using TruFit, they think it’s fantastic.

“It’s all about getting the message across to installers that they can differentiate themselves and build in greater value for consumers by using TruFit. In the bigger picture, it’s about the quality and durability of the finish which can be achieved and obviously cost savings are always of interest to companies.

“Glazpart featured TruFit on its stand at April’s FIT Show. It generated a lot of interest from prospective customers and it was really helpful to be able to take them to the Edgetech stand to give them live demonstrations.

“Edgetech’s support and experience has really helped us get the supply going and we think it’s a fantastic addition to our trade counter products range, offering a kit of essential consumables to make fitting windows easy for even the smallest installation teams.”
