ForgeFix announces Timber Expo 2016 plans

Distributor of fixings, fasteners, power tool accessories and hardware, ForgeFix has announced its plans for Timber Expo 2016, which runs from 18th to the 20th October at the NEC Birmingham.

The business will use its inaugural appearance at the UK’s only event dedicated to the use of timber in construction to showcase its impressive capabilities and its extensive product range.

In particular, it will focus on a number of recently launched products. It will also stage special promotions aimed at both professional users and potential resellers.

Specifically, visitors to the ForgeFix stand – Stand T3/135 – will be able to learn more about the company’s new ForgeFast elite performance woodscrews.

These screws outperform most premium woodscrews on the market in areas such as drive-speed, cam-out reduction, corrosion resistance, shear prevention and even environmental credentials.

As a result, ForgeFix is positioning ForgeFast screws in a new and elite performance category.

The new ForgeFast screws owe their exceptional performance characteristics to a number of carefully considered design features. This includes the use of ForgeFix’s unique Elementech 400 coating.

Salt spray tested to 400 hours, Elementech 400 lasts up to six times longer and delivers up to six times the protection of more commonplace zinc coatings.

Both Pozi and Torx head ForgeFast screws are available and in sizes ranging from 3.0x12 to 6.0x240.

Visitors will also be able to learn more about the recent accreditation of ForgeFix decking screws under the DeckMark scheme.

Operated by the Timber Decking and Cladding Association and developed in conjunction with BM TRADA Certification, the DeckMark scheme is based on existing quality assurance standards such as ISO 9000, EN45011/12 and ISO Guide 62/65.

It aims to help those involved in the specification, design, installation or purchasing of decking by making it easier to identify products of the highest quality and that are especially fit for purpose.

Finally, ForgeFix will also be giving away free merchandising on its stand and running special, show only deals.

This includes the chance for potential resale partners to benefit from free 1m merchandising units on loan when they order a set amount of ForgeFast products.

Speaking of the company’s plans, Mike Pollard, product manager at ForgeFix, said: “Timber Expo 2016 will see ForgeFix’s first ever appearance and we’ve every intention of making a good first impression. We’re looking forward to telling visitors to the show about our ability to meet the needs of timber users with high quality products backed by equally high levels of service and advice.”
