National fabricator TWR Trade Frames has expanded their product offering by announcing they will be fabricating the new lead-free Kommerling 070 Gold System from April.
The move will enable TWR to manufacture an ‘A’ rated window using steel and without the need for thermal inserts or low iron glass, resulting in a more cost effective WER solution.
TWR’s managing director Terry Richardson elaborates on this development: “The new 070 Gold range will sit alongside our existing PVC-u and aluminium windows, bi-folds and doors and will open up new sales opportunities for our customers. WERs are an excellent marketing tool and now installers can capitalise on this by selling a cost effective ‘A’ rated window. What’s more, the lead free nature of the system will significantly enhance our customers ‘green’ credentials and help them capture the interest of environmentally aware homeowners.”
Aside from the eco-friendly benefits, according to Terry the aesthetic appeal of 070 Gold is also a major plus for installers. “070 Gold has a sculptured design and slim sightlines and really stands out from other products on the market. This will appeal to today’s style conscious consumer and makes for a very desirable window and door system.”
The decision to fabricate Kommerling is the latest in a long line of major developments at TWR. The company recently committed over £2m in capital investment across the business to improve factory efficiencies and increase frame output, further cementing their position as one of the UK’s fastest growing window manufacturers.
Terry concludes: “Since TWR’s inception in 2001, the company has grown year on year and continued to launch new products to the market. The introduction of the Kommerling 070 Gold continues this tradition and I’m sure the new range will be well received by new and existing customers alike.”
