Using the wrong type of fasteners when assembling windows and doors can present serious health and safety risks. While the fenestration sector has taken huge steps forward in recent decades to improve health and safety in the workplace, there are still areas for improvement. Fastener use is certainly one, and the good news is that we can all easily reduce our risk of injuries by following a few basic steps.
Have you ever thought about whether you are assembling windows and doors in the best possible way? Even though today’s profiles, reinforcement and hardware are all designed with decent tolerances to give us the leeway that’s so important in a fast-moving manufacturing environment, it is still important to think about the minor changes that you can make to your assembly techniques that will make a big difference to finished product quality.
As the window and door market settles to more normal activity levels, now could be a good time for fabricators to look at how to improve manufacturing efficiency. But how can your choice of fasteners boost productivity and profitability?
The technical quality and performance capabilities of the products and systems used today in the manufacture and installation of windows and doors is easy to take for granted when we’re busy and focused on meeting customer deadlines. But let’s not forget that the fenestration sector is hugely innovative, with new concepts made possible through continuous investment by those at the forefront of the industry using state of the art technical resources.
