TruFit like a Master Fitter thanks to GQA CPD programme

GQA Assessors are invited to learn about the benefits of TruFit®, expanding foam edge tape from Edgetech UK, at a special GQA CPD event on 19 April 2017.

Window installation tapes like TruFit are being used more and more for window and door installations and this year it will feature in the finals of the Master Fitter Challenge at FIT Show 2017.

“TruFit is leading the professionalisation of the industry by helping installers to maintain the Window Energy Ratings (WERs) of the windows they are fitting,” explains Charlotte Davies, Head of Marketing at Edgetech UK.

“Our CPD session for GQA assessors will give them a thorough understanding of TruFit and how it can be used to achieve a more modern finish with a consistent perimeter seal. This will give them the knowledge to ask the right questions of candidates using window fitting tapes.”

“TruFit offers benefits that outperform traditional ‘wet’ sealant methods, with up to 23 percent less heat loss in independent tests. It’s important that both installers and assessors understand these benefits.”

FIT Show’s Master Fitter Challenge is well-known for incorporating the latest industry trends, which is why TruFit is included in this year’s final. Charlotte continues: “Master Fitter competitors will be installing using TruFit during the finals. As part of our involvement with the competition, we’re inviting all Master Fitter Competition entrants to join us for the CPD event also. That way they can practise fitting windows with TruFit before the live final at FIT Show.”

Entry is open for the Master Fitter Challenge until the end of March. Installers looking to show off their skills, win a share of the £10,000 prize money and be crowned Master Fitter of the Year can enter at http://www.fitshow.co.uk/master-fitter-challenge.

The CPD event will be held at Edgetech UK’s headquarters in Coventry. You can book your place on the TruFit GQA CPD session by calling 0114 2720033 or emailing: info@gqaqualifications.com .
