Rapierstar has developed a new Recommended Fixings Manual (RFM) for all Eurocell systems in conjunction with the technical team at the systems supplier.
The publication of the new guide is the culmination of years of technical collaboration between the two companies, which extends into support for testing. As a result, all windows and doors tested in Eurocell’s learning and development centre, including new product developments, are assembled using Rapierstar fasteners.
Available to download, the new RFM includes an easy-to-read new layout and colour coding to make it easier to identify screws for insertion into profiles and steel reinforced sections, as well as other screw types – all from Rapierstar’s StarPVCU® range.
The latest range of profiles is covered, including Modus and Logik systems, and Rapierstar will update the RFM to add new profiles as soon as they become available to Eurocell fabricators to keep it fully up to date and relevant.
Carl Storer, Senior Testing & Research Support Technician at Eurocell said: “It’s crucially important to use the right fasteners for the application which is why the Rapierstar RFM is such a valuable guide to help our fabricators achieve the best quality finished windows and doors. We work closely with Rapierstar during our research and design projects and product testing, support that we really value, as well as their assistance in resolving issues for fabricators when they arise.”
Mark Furness, Rapierstar Sales and Marketing Director added: “Our existing RFM has become indispensable for Eurocell fabricators, many of whom already use the 2016 edition as an essential reference guide. By sticking to the recommended fixings, whether it is to attach hardware such as friction stays, keeps or letterboxes, or for retention of reinforcement, fabricators can have total confidence that the finished window or door will be robust, and function as well as can be expected during its service life.”
