More support for cut-to-size reinforcements
ANGLO EUROPEAN has backed up its claims of economies for fabricators buying-in cut-to-size reinforcements, with new calculations indicating savings of up to £240,000 a year can be achieved.
Newly released financial and operational modelling released by the company say the figure is possible based on a fabricator making around 2,000f/w while a smaller operation making 100f/w could save around £12,220.
“Clearly the bigger you are, the more you benefit from economies of scale, but even smaller fabricators can save more than £10,000 a year by buying window and door reinforcement cut-to-size and direct”, said business development director Lee Marriott.
“With rising overheads and particularly increased labour costs, the opportunity to take labour out of your business or reapply it, while also reducing wastage i.e. if you buy reinforcement from us, that immediately drops to zero, these are savings that fabricators can’t afford to ignore.”
Anglo European announced in January that it received a series of independent test approvals on its PVC-U window and door galvanized reinforcements, matching requirements for weathertightness set by a number of major systems hoses - with full compliance with BS6375-1:2015.
Earlier tests had shown that both of the coating grades offered by Anglo, which include GZ275UK and GZ140EU also met performance criteria. Test results on other systems are still underway.
