Rapierstar is celebrating 25 years as the UK’s market leading designer, importer and distributor of specialist fastener and fixings at this year’s FiT Show.
The company will reveal the latest product developments for PVCU, aluminium and timber manufacturers, underpinned by its refreshed brand identity and highlight some of its new fixings at stand M1.
StarPIN and StarNail have been designed to offer a stainless steel product with a versatile low-profile polymer head that has maximum pull-out resistance. The pins and nails are suitable for all plastic systems and offer ten colour options.
StarAlu has been designed to improve fabricator experience across all aluminium door and window products. The screws were tested to extremes at Rapierstar’s unique research and development centre. They are manufactured from Austenitic stainless steel and are low maintenance, strength and durability in addition to exceeding European standards.
Group Managing Director, David Furness, said: “The FiT Show is an opportunity to celebrate the success to date and ongoing ambition of Rapierstar as the industry’s most reliable fixings and screws supplier.”
StarPin and StarAlu are parts of a range of award-winning family products: StarPVCU, StarTurn, StarFix, StarPin & StarNail and StarDeck, which make up Rapierstar’s continuous stock of one billions screws and fixings ready to serve the majority of UK windows and doors manufacturers throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.
