Six installers will compete in the live finals at the FIT Show, where they will install a series of glazing products with the chance to win cash prizes totally £10,000. The finalists will be chosen from an entry list following a filtering process carried out by co-sponsor the Glass Qualifications Authority and associated industry expert judges.
The selection process includes a visit to the site of those who reach the second stage, to assess entrants in real world conditions.
The free-to-enter competition is open to individuals or teams of two, who are required to have a minimum two years of industry experience in the installation of domestic windows and doors. Entrants must be MTC compliant through the FENSA MTC Card (or equivalent) or hold relevant qualifications.
