With a large number of over qualified leads from the FIT Show, we have yet again came home from the industry’s dedicated trade show with considerable interest for our new products, which included developments for the outdoor living market, new residential glazing systems and the formal launch of our new WARMroof Hybrid.
We committed to our biggest stand ever and were warmly rewarded with a large number of qualified leads. The introduction of our outdoor living range in 2016 has been a major plus for us, with sales of their revered Verandah strong throughout 2016 and into 2017, again with considerable interest on our stand.
This was also supplemented with enquiries for the new KOMMERLING Pergola, as we have secured exclusivity through the trade channels and will be formally launching the product in the coming weeks.
The WARMroof has been a defining product for Prefix, as the most adaptive and configurable solid, tiled roof in the sector and the FIT Show proved to be the perfect platform in which to formally launched the hybrid variant, which was previewed at last year’s event and has undergone extensive ‘in the field’ testing over the last 12 months.
The roof shown incorporated two large, fixed, triple glazed panels that were finished off to the underside with luxurious OPUS hardwood cladding, while the other side of the dual pitch roof offered two Velux rooflights, again framed out with hardwood cladding.
The OPUS aluminium & timber composite full height glazing also formed part of the showcased hybrid WARMroof, along with sumptuous bi-folding doors from the same suite.
Other glazing systems included the Alitherm 47 heritage window and the VS600 vertical sliding window from Smart Systems, which formed part of an traditional Orangery, harnessing the proven iX250 Orangery deck.
This was glazed with two ultraSky lanterns with two different finishes internally, one in contemporary aluminium, the other in the OPUS luxurious hardwood.
The trend towards aluminium was also further highlighted with the launch of URBANroom, a contemporary twist on the traditional conservatory, using a dedicated deep section gutter shroud, Ultrasky lantern roof, internal pelmet and full height glazing panels, all in sky blue from the Smart Systems Sensations range.
This part of the stand focussed heavily on the full kit solutions available through Prefix Systems, with an extensive range of Smart aluminium products coupled with the glazed roofing solutions.
We have taken a leading role in supplying this ever-growing sector of the market for full kit solutions from a single source. These product packages are supplied nationwide and backed up with the technical knowledge and service that customers have come to expect from us.
Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, co-directors of Prefix Systems commented: ‘The FIT Show again proved that customers have a thirst for new products and we’ve certainly satisfied that with developments spanning a number of market segments. We’re now firmly cemented as a business that specialises in the extended living space and aluminium residential sectors, with a number of exclusive products to our name.’
