The use of low maintenance building products in refurbishment projects is well documented but using PVC-U in heritage or conservation areas is still an issue that holds much debate. Swish Building Products will be tackling critics and sceptics head on at Ecobuild 2014, proving that modern materials can work hand-in-hand with traditional design; combining the high performance, low maintenance characteristics of PVC-U with lasting good looks.
Stand N1110/11 will feature a heritage display showcasing the companys PVC-U Tudor Board alongside a ball finial and bracing bar, a concave decorative roofline with trims and a new cast effect Ogee gutter system with unique down pipe castings. Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to hear the benefits of specifying and installing PVC-U products while exploring the wider options available to them; from spires and finials to concave and convex roofline components.
Swish Building Products has an array of specialist products ideal for both new build and refurbishment projects; from PVC-U Tudor Board, ideal for replacing mock Tudor timber boards popular on developments in the 1980s; to low maintenance, PVC-U roofline products designed to recreate and replace the intricate detailing of original timber rooflines, often associated with Victorian buildings.
The companys SuperDeep 170 guttering system will also feature on the stand (N1110/11). Already proving successful in the commercial arena the high strength, high volume guttering system is designed to handle a much higher flow rate than standard guttering systems. With a market leading flow rate of around 10 litres per second, the SuperDeep 170 has the capacity to carry over 10 times more water than a standard half round gutter and at least five times more water than a standard deep system.
Swish Building Products will form part of the Epwin Group stand (N1110/11) along with a number of group businesses including Permadoor, Profile 22 and Safedoors.
