Foam sealant and air tightness specialist ISO-Chemie has sealed success with its new Republic of Ireland distributor, winning two national product awards.

The firm, which has appointed Contech Specialist Building to handle the sales and development of its energy saving products across the island of Ireland, has seen both its BLOCO-One sealing tape and ISO TOP WINFRAMER window product separately commended at the recent Architecture and Building Expo in Dublin.

The products are used to improve the installation of doors and windows and were picked out for success by a board of architecture and design experts, who praised their high quality, energy efficiency and sustainability benefits.

Contech, based in County Carlow, provides specialist building products, and the addition of ISO-Chemie’s products to its portfolio is seen as a good partnership, according to Andy Swift, sales and operations manager - UK & ROI.

He said: “We were surprised at the interest in our product range for the energy rated sealing around windows, as well as many enquiries for WINFRAMER at the show. The product’s an ideal fire rated solution for the many concrete building projects currently underway in Dublin.

“We’re also delighted with the new partnership with Contech. The move heralds the latest step in our strategic development and ensuring architects, designers, installers and other customers have full and easy access to our products.”

The WINFRAMER thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system for the rapid installation of windows, has been fire rated to E30, providing protection of the window area from fire for a minimum of 30 minutes, guaranteeing the retention of structural integrity. Product is also capable of supporting at least 200kg/m and providing an airtight cavity support.
