Doors and Windows Exeter excels with illbruck’s TP650
One of Devon’s leading installers has become an enthusiastic advocate for illbruck’s TP650 – the modern window installation method that leaves silicone standing.
For more than 25 years, Doors and Windows Exeter has been providing top-of-the-range installations to homeowners from Torquay to Taunton. Offering a huge selection of high-end glazing products, it’s earned fans throughout the region for its approachability, no-pressure sales philosophy and proud family values. And when the company visited their local Eurocell depot back in 2018, their never-ending quest for quality meant a new product caught their eye.
We’d heard bits and pieces about installation tapes over the years – comments company Director Nick George – but we’d never seen any reason to ditch silicone. It’s far from perfect, but we’d been using it for a quarter of a century. But Illbruck were running a promotion, and we thought, why not? If it was half as good as they said it was, it was definitely worth a try. So, we took them up on their offer, trialled it on one of our installation projects, and we haven’t looked back.
TP650 Trio is a compressed foam window installation tape. Once you remove the backing paper, the tape steadily expands to effectively seal all gaps and spaces between the frame and wall. Impregnated with a flame-retardant resin, it’s extremely safe, and offers outstanding thermal efficiency, outstanding air-tightness and driving rain resistance of at least 600 PA.
It’s incredibly quick and easy to use – Nick continues. – We’ve all used silicone for years, but there’s no question, it’s a pain – it’s messy, and you can’t use it in rainy weather, which is a pretty big weakness in England. With TP650 none of those problems apply – and what’s more, it offers the end-user vastly greater thermal and acoustic performance too. All in all, it’s a fantastic product, and we look forward to using it for many years to come!
