AGF, Mike Yerrell and Michelle Scotney, HiTECH was formed as a response to what its founders saw as low standards in the existing integral blinds sector. Joined by long-serving blinds expert Ian Woolley, the team set about designing a product that excelled on all fronts. Magnet-operated for blissfully easy operation, and offering BS EN 1279-accreditation robustness and weather-resistance, the blinds have been successfully cycle- tested to 10,000 cycles. They come backed-up with a no-nonsense 10-year guarantee. The blinds don’t just perform exceptionally, however – they’re also extremely customisable.
The company offers dual-coloured slats to match dual-coloured frames, and can also produce double and triple- glazed units with Georgian bars and other decorative elements.
  Company director Michele Scotney comments: “We set ourselves the task of developing the best integrated blinds on the market, backed by brilliant customer service, and we’ve been able to achieve that quicker than we thought possible. But at the same time, we’re not complacent. We’re ambitious about the future – and in the next twelve months and beyond, we want to show the industry just how good integral blinds can be.”

Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director commented: ‘The existing website for The Residence Collection is visually stunning with the information carefully orchestrated for the consumer and architect.

At the same time as transforming speed it also transforms quality: it guarantees 90 degree welding every time thanks to automatic head positioning and self centers for transoms. Despite the machine’s many advantages it has been designed to be easy to use. There’s touch screen control with memory positioning and all operations can be controlled automatically via the PLC. Like all Haffner Murat machines it comes with
the reassurance of expert installation and full training so it can start to deliver return on investment from day one. Finance packages are available subject to status and part exchange is an option. Dave commented: “The SMR-5
Welder gives fabricators what they need in the current market. It’s a machine that speeds up production and improves quality at the same time, allowing them to compete at every level.”
