CONSTRUCTION: New Window System Revolutionises Building Process

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

A newly patented fibre-cement sub-frame that is fitted during initial construction, puts an end to builders struggling with built openings that don’t fit the window.  According to Pierre Swart, a former MD of Anglo-Vaal Industries subsidiary and Alexander Forbes, who developed the product, windows often don’t exactly fit the hole and need to be remade or become paint-splattered during construction.


WinKlik’s locally designed and manufactured system supplies the frame and aluminium window in two parts so that the window is only fitted once construction, plastering and painting (known in the industry as wet tray activities) have been completed.


As its name suggests, the window is simply clicked into place and secured from the inside. Because of its standardised design (product is available in any height and width up to 2.1 meters square, it is ideal for repetitive use in large scale projects like schools and hospitals, but equally suited to DIY enthusiasts after a cost-efficient option.


The fibre-cement is strengthened with silica fume and steel fibre to make it strong but not brittle. It will also always weigh less than 40kg (the weight of a cement sack) to product handlers. WinKlik windows are available from Builders Warehouse, Penny Pinchers and other DIY stores.
