Masterframe Celebrates 30th Birthday With Investment In Technology
Halo fabricator Masterframe is celebrating 30 years in business with a significant investment in new welding technology. The Essex-based firm specialises only in PVC-U windows in authentic sash styles and won a 2017 National Fenestration award for being ‘Timber Alternative Window Company’ of the year; using high quality Masterframe-bespoke Halo profile to produce stunning box sash systems.
The company replicates the look of mortise and tenon joints found in original timber box sash windows using a welded construction. The company patented this technique in 2005, where butt joints are vertical rather than horizontal, to offer an alternative to timber windows that combines authentic style with modern technology and performance.
Carol Slade, Sales & Operations Director explains: “This method of construction gives the perfect ‘look’ while ensuring that the profiles are perfectly sealed with no open chambers. We began producing the corners for our windows by hand, before commissioning a welder that could achieve it in 2016 and registering the Timberweld trademark.
We’re also thrilled to have invested in a bespoke four-head welder for even greater productivity, accuracy and consistency. It is the most complicated piece of equipment we have ever purchased and it took around a week to commission, programme, connect and train our operatives.
Our customers benefit from sash windows with perfectly sealed corners that are manufactured using a state-of-the-art welding machine and the Timberweld method of corner construction.
“We are very proud to demonstrate that even after 30 years in business, we’re determined to stay at the very cutting edge of the industry.”
