AT Precision Introduces Recycled Thermal Reinforcement Bars To Product Portfolio

by | Oct 31, 2023 | Accessories

Hardware supplier AT Precision has introduced Recycled Thermal Reinforcement (RTR) bars to its product portfolio.

Made from 100% recycled uPVC, the RTR bars add strength and increased thermal performance to windows, are quick and easy to install, and boast a minimum lifespan of 35 years, says the company.

The addition follows the recent launch of the Durham-based company’s own in-house recycling scheme, complete with a factory expansion and £370K investment in a new extrusion machine.

The scheme sees AT Precision picking up unused or unwanted uPVC materials from its customers, and processing these for use in manufacturing its range of RTR bars.

Sales director Michael Hewitt comments: “In the face of a pressing climate crisis, the fenestration sector is directing more effort towards sustainability – at AT Precision, we are dedicated to playing our role in the preservation of our planet, and we firmly believe that our recent investments in a new recycling scheme as well as our new RTR bars have been truly worthwhile.

“Our innovative recycling scheme has not only expanded our manufacturing facility by an extra 10,000 square feet, but has also solidified our commitment to sustainability.

“Meanwhile, the new RTR system delivers a multitude of benefits for both the environment and for our customers, including enhanced thermal efficiency, quick and easy installation, and an impressive minimum lifespan of 35 years.”

With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Durham, AT Precision manufactures the Everglide range of bi-fold components such as rollers, guides and hinges, as well as the Everseal range of high-quality gaskets.

The company also specialises in security hardware, PVC infill extrusions, and aluminium profile for bi-folds.

Michael concludes: “AT Precision is renowned for delivering high-quality hardware solutions nationwide – now, with our renewed commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we can continue to add to our product portfolio while doing our part for the planet.”
