Timber frame and SIPs panel manufacturers can quicken the installation of windows and doors by using the Sidey Kitfix system.
Pressure is on for builders and developers to get on and off-site faster, which means ways at reducing the time spent installing windows and doors need to be considered.
Steve Hardy, MD of fenestration and offsite construction specialists Sidey Solutions, has spoken about the Kitfix System, which allows windows and doors to be fitted quickly accurately at the factory stage.
“11 windows can be first fixed in 23 minutes. They are installed when the walls are horizontal in the factory and the innovative Kitfix brackets are twist fitted to the window or door frame. Air tightness, thermal and acoustic seals can also be included at this stage,” he said.
“This system makes transportation simple and once on site, the panels are erected as normal. This means homes are wind, watertight and secure much sooner, and makes the build much faster. It also eliminates the need for separate deliveries of windows and doors, with no site storage required either.
“The latest changes to planning laws announced on 5 March mean there is even more pressure to get the job done quicker,” adds Steve. “Choosing Kitfix to install windows and doors will help builders and developers build fast.”
