head fixings can run to almost as much as the profile system itself, so there is a clear cost-benefit to switching to a counterbore system which allows bolts with a standard head to be used. It’s also suitable for use in residential and light commercial applications, for example office installations, without needing to use rigid toughened laminates such as Sentry glass. Four or five times more expensive than standard PVB interlayers, that’s another very significant saving.”

  Freefoam Building Products are delighted to announce that Carl Rutter has been promoted to the new role of Business Development Manager.
Bohle has expanded its balustrading offer with the EasyMount 6020, which introduces significant hardware savings to cut the cost of balustrade installation.
A heavy-duty addition the to the EasyMount range, the 6020 withstands a linear load of up to 1.5kN, installed more easily and at a lower cost than traditional systems. Rather than requiring countersunk fixings, it uses counterbored. Meaning standard head anchor bolts can be used to mount the system rather than the expensive countersunk fixings. Distances between mounting points are also increased, reducing installation times and fixings required. Dave Broxton, MD, Bohle, said: “The savings are substantial. The cost of countersunk
Available in a side-mounted option, EasyMount 6021, both systems can accommodate glass thicknesses of between 12mm and 21.52mm. Fixing points to achieve a 0.74kN residential linear loading are every 20cm on the 6020 and 40cm for the side mounted 6021.
  Carl has worked for Freefoam for over 10 years, as Area Sales Manager for the South West, developing successful long and lasting relationships with our customer base to bring sustainable sales growth to the business.
Each system also comes with a full range of ancillaries.
This promotion shows Freefoam’s commitment and respect for the contribution Carl has made to the company and will utilise his skills and experience to introduce new product ranges and develop new markets playing a significant role in the companies continued growth.
“Glass balustrading remains a growth area and our range is growing with it to deliver increased opportunities for profit to our customers. The EasyMount 6020 and 6021 represent a logical evolution of that offer, delivering significant savings and the flexibility for installation in not only residential but also commercial applications, using a single system”, he concluded.
