Timberweld commissioned MRA Research to conduct independent research into the flush sash and timber alternative market with fabricators.
“Most of the fabricators who were interviewed loved the look of the flush sash, in particular the timber-look butt joints,” comments Alan Burgess, Managing Director of Timberweld. “They saw demand growing fast, but a significant number thought mechanically jointing was ‘a pain to fabricate’ and want to weld to meet volume demand cost effectively. And ‘aesthetically’, hidden welding was rated the best.”
Alan adds: “The research echoes what we’ve found in the market – fabricators are looking to create a timber look butt-joint cost-effectively at scale, in order to take advantage of the opportunities the flush sash market offers.
