The highest standards
Independent Network, the new name for Network Veka, recognised recently-joined North Lakes NLG Window Systems with one of two best new member awards at its annual members’ weekend.
Penrith-based North Lakes has been full of praise for the benefits that membership has brought, citing training, marketing support and heightened customer confidence.
Martin Smith, who owns and operates the company alongside his wife Lindsey, says: “Independent Network really helps to make the most of being a Veka installer. Not only are customers reassured that they’re buying the industry’s leading doors and windows, but they’ll also be fitted to the highest standards.
“Since joining, we’ve attended various Independent Network training days, and feel more than ever that we’re
fully up-to-speed with industry advances as a result. The courses also provide a great opportunity to meet other member companies and get a sense of the culture of Independent Network. There’s a great camaraderie among everyone involved, and we’ve been made to feel welcome throughout.
“It’s early days for North Lakes with Independent Network, but we’re extremely pleased that we decided to join and look forward to further exploring the support available in future – apprenticeships; affiliate partnerships; marketing and online support... there’s so much on offer, it’s hard to remember it all.” ❐
With two new launches Renolit now offers matt finish foils and a black foil which is said to resist heat build-up.
Renolit ExfolPX Ulti-Matt has a low gloss and fine structure to give a painted/powder coated look to profiles.The Ulti-Matt surface is available in four colours: white, cream white and anthracite grey plus the addition of the recently introduced true black.
Black is another technologically advanced film which, says Renolit, defies convention by combining the darkest colour with low heat build-up.
The foil has been combined with two surface textures providing a choice of tradition woodgrain emboss or the recently launched architectural Ulti-Matt flat surface finish.
Both foils are produced as a Renolit ExfolPX grade
material, a patented exterior film which also benefits from the addition of SST (Renolit’s solar shield technology) to reduce heat build-up. Renolit claims its ExfolPX films offer improved performance with the latest modern designs, colours and textures and was developed to enhance weatherability and extend guarantee periods for up to 15 years in the UK. ❐
