They guarantee your car, boat or property will look unbelievably better. As some of you may know, we have a 1989 Toyota which had recently had a valet and wax. We called … They had a good look round the car and expressed how much better they could make it look.

We were absolutely astounded at the finish of the paintwork. Please check out the photos above to see the difference and once the whole car was completed, it looked like it was new.

is a family run business. We are specialist manufacturers of Glass curtains and stainless steel. We have our own Glass toughening plant which means that the complete glass curtain system, including the glass, is manufactured under one roof. We also manufacture UPVC and Aluminium windows and doors. The Glass Curtain system that we manufacture is a German system, it is typical of German design; much time and thought has gone into the system making it one of, if not the best, system available on the market today. The system is completely different to other systems that are of similar money. It is top hung which means that the weight of the glass is distributed evenly and not all sitting on the bottom, rubbing metal against metal. This system runs on stainless steel wheels and bronze ball bearings, each panel of glass has four holes drilled into it so that the profile can be bolted to the glass as well as glued. This is the only system to do this; all other systems are merely glued to the profile. Other companies will claim that a bottom hung system is better; however as glass manufacturers who make our own glass and understand the weight that is involved per square meter for 10mm glass, we know that the best way for a system to function correctly is to hang the glass so as not to impose such weight and strain onto the system below, causing scraping and juddering over a period of time and regular use. Our system has undergone many tests, including an opening and closing test of over 10,000 cycles and also a wind test of up to 2,000 Pascals; all the test documentation can be viewed at our offices. For any information, please email us on or check out our website on or see our Facebook page for regularly updated installations. Tel: 952 477 963/677 712 742. Please see main ad.
