UPVC Roofline Installation - PDF
Take a look at our leaflet on installation tips for UPVC roofline components, in refurbishment and new build replacement projects.
Window Trims are generally used to cover the unslightly plaster gaps that are left when old windows or doors are removed and replaced with new.
As the profile of modern joinery is generally much smaller than the old timber versions, it is usually not possible to install a new window or door right up to the old plaster line - the new fitting has to be brought forward. This leaves a small gap of somewhere between 25mm and 100mm. Our range of finishing trims, in five colour options that are matched to standard WIndow and Door foils, enables this gap to be neatly hidden.
Our WIndow Trims are manufactured by FloPlast to British Standard and are BBA Approved. The range includes quadrants, architraves, D section mouldings and flexible angles.
PVC Trims should be installed using superglue, silicon sealant or impact adhesive. The substrate to which the trim is being fixed should always be dry and clean.
Our trims are suitable for both internal and external use. The foils on the woodgrain trim options are indentical to the standard foils used by window and door manufacturers so colour match should not be an issue.
Our flexible angles incorporate a special nitrile PVC joint and therefore can be used as a cover trim for bay window mullions.
