The business of Alphaplas Ltd was started in 1995 supplying to the trade and DIY, with PVCu fascia, soffit, cladding, trims etc, along with PVCu windows, doors, and conservatories. Due to a demand, from the general public, we finally established a fitting service.
The ‘retail’ side of the business grew to the stage that a sales manager was employed as well as five salesmen, telephone canvassers and foot canvassers to bring in the ‘leads’. Advertising by radio and posh magazines as well as newspapers, made the company very busy in Devon but more so in Cornwall.
After many years of trading we decided that we were like many other double glazing companies, employing high pressure sales techniques and carefully worded adverts with ‘special offers’ and ‘super discounts’ and if you need ‘selling to’ there are still plenty that will pin you in your own front room, until you sign up! Yes it still goes on!..
A long way down the road, with 90% of our business coming from recommendations,
we do not employ salespersons or offer unbelievable special discounts.
Our double glazed units consist of Planitherm Total Plus Glass with Edgetech Super Spacer and are 90% Argon Gas filled; this gives the best chance of keeping warm air in and cold air out, it also reduces the transfer of noise. Where you want privacy we use Pilkington glass patterns. More information on these products is available on line, or ask us for an information leaflet. www.planitherm.com will provide information on the glass. You will see their advertising on television, they have started a free dealership network, Where possible we use low iron glass.
www.edgetechig.co.uk will provide information on the spacer bar and its advantages.
So whether you want to replace your old timber or aluminium windows or update your uPVC you will have a ‘head start’ keeping warm and comfortable. It is sensible to use these products when considering a new conservatory, porch or garden room. When considering a glass roof for your conservatory,
‘self cleaning’ glass is available.
