The Midland’s biggest fabricator Frame Fast, hosted a training session for Equinox solid roofs as part of its customer support package Frame Fast 4 Fitters. “The session was a hands-on opportunity for customers to see Equinox up close and learn how easy it is to install,” says Nigel Leivers, Director for Frame Fast.
Sixteen people attended the session which started with hot breakfast rolls. The group went onto the build floor in Roof Fast, Frame Fast’s roof department, where a full-sized Equinox roof was partially built to show the different stages. Experts from Roof Fast and Eurocell demonstrated the installation of the roof and customers had the opportunity to get involved.
Starting with the frame and the pre-cut insulation, the roof was built up in front of the audience. Eaves trays were added, and sarking felt attached before the lightweight tiles were fitted. The simple system is perfect for both refurbishment of old conservatories and new build extensions. Equinox offer the options of the Metro tile and the Tapco slate tile with a variation of colour choices. They can be installed on any style of conservatory roof and Velux roof lights can also be added.
The information was well-received. After the event Amber Dewis from Ben Sherriff Construction Ltd told us: “We like to offer customers the most up to date products. With the Equinox system we will be able to offer our customers a conservatory that they will be able to use the all year round.”
Customers who attended received a certificate to say they had completed training and a goody bag that included a thermal travel flask, a mug, pens and a chocolate bar. They also got a £50 voucher to use against their next purchase of an Equinox roof.
Nigel adds: “We are really happy with the feedback from customers. It’s been a very successful morning and we will be running further sessions on a series of subjects in the coming months as part of the Frame Fast 4 Fitters support.”
