An expanding window and door trade counter network has introduced Rapierstar branded fasteners to its product portfolio. Europlas (PVCu) is a division of the Rooms & Views Manufacturing Group, which produces more than 1,800 windows and doors every week at its factories in North and South Wales, and Scotland.

Rapierstar is supporting Europlas as it expands its current network of trade counters throughout South Wales, including Buckley, Flintshire, and Winsford, Cheshire, with new branches also coming soon in Scotland and another in South Wales.

Europlas branches supply a wide range of exterior and interior products to the window, door, roofing and joinery markets, plus hardware and tools, making the Rapierstar brand a perfect fit. The business is set up in a way that ensures each counter can combine a personal customer service with experienced advice and large product ranges from industry leading brands, including Liniar, Floplast, Soudal, Kestrel, Supalite, Classic Bond EPDM & Ronjack.

Amongst the Rapierstar products now available at Europlas are StarFix masonry fixings and StarTurn universal woodscrews. StarFix provides a plug-free screw for the efficient installation of PVC-U window and door frames in a single process, with no need to set fiddly plastic plugs first. And StarTurn is a range of screws in numerous sizes designed primarily for use in wood, with ease of use and secure fixing assured thanks to Rapierstar’s optimised thread design and head form.

Gavin Burton, Operations Director at Europlas said: Partnering with Rapierstar will bring us a number of benefits which I believe will be important for the next era of our business. Their position as the market-leader for window and door fasteners is evident in the quality of their sales, customer service and technical support that we’ve already experienced, and their commitment will certainly help us to maintain our high standards as we grow.

Kevin Jennings, Technical Consultant at Rapierstar added: We’re delighted to be partnering with Europlas and that its growing customer base can now source Rapierstar fasteners from their trade counters alongside other major brands in the construction market. The business has an excellent reputation for providing quality products that its customers can rely on, both in terms of their performance and availability, and we will be working closely with them to ensure their sales of Rapierstar branded screws are maximised.

Rapierstar is the largest supplier of specialist fasteners to the window and door industry in the UK and Ireland. In addition to the StarFix and StarTurn brands, the company offers the sector’s most extensive range of fasteners for window and door manufacturing, StarPVCU, which can be used in the assembly of all the most widely used PVCu profile systems.
