INSTALL ALUMINIUM COMPOSITE FASCIAS AND SOFFITS LIKE PVC
Leading aluminium rainwater and eaves system manufacturer Marley Alutec has once again developed its product portfolio, this time to make installation of its Evoke fascia and soffit range even easier with the launch of new H-section joints.
Marley Alutec’s Evoke aluminium composite fascia and soffit system has been hugely popular since its launch in 2011. Since then it has benefitted from a number of developments, the latest change has real installer appeal. Marley Alutec has now fitted the range with new H-section joints, which exactly replicates PVC jointing systems. This means the system can be installed as conveniently as PVC but retains all the strength and durability of aluminium.
This innovative development has come in response to customer feedback and market needs and has been specifically tailored to make the job of the installer simpler and more efficient. What’s more, Marley Alutec’s Evoke range requires no specialist tools or training, standard carpentry tools will suffice – meaning it has never been easier to switch from PVC to a higher performing aluminium system.
Brian Bell, Head of Technical Services at Marley Alutec, commented: “At Marley Alutec we pride ourselves on offering high quality products that are easy to use and cost effective to install. The new H-section joint does exactly that by reducing the time spent, skills needed and ultimately the cost of installing the Evoke range. Aluminium systems have extremely competitive whole life costs when compared to more traditional alternatives yet offer enhanced performance benefits that no other systems can match. The H-section is the latest development that makes the specification choice even easier in favour of the Evoke range.”
Karl Huxall, Contract Manager at C & AJ Marshall, added: “This additional joint option makes Evoke virtually the same as PVC to install – the H-section slots easily together to provide perfect alignment at the joints. This was very useful at our project in Fulwith Mill Lane as we were directly fixing the fascia to rafter ends.”
Marley Alutec’s Evoke range is a durable alternative and has the added benefit of being made from composite aluminium material, which offers a life expectancy in excess of 50 years. In addition, the Evoke range is extremely strong and rigid despite being only 4mm thick – not only does this mean that it doesn’t require a backing board, it also makes it perfect for fitting over existing systems without reducing tile overhang.
At the heart of Evoke’s specifier appeal is a high performance PVDF paint finish with a Nano self-cleaning additive that helps to reduce the build-up of dust and algae, resulting in an eaves system which stays straighter and cleaner for longer. These excellent performance benefits are further bolstered by the fact that at the end of its exceptionally long life span, the entire system is fully recyclable, making it one of the most sustainable systems available in the UK.
Marley Alutec is highly experienced in aluminium product development as well as on site problem solving. The technical team at Marley Alutec has a history of providing bespoke solutions across a wide range of applications such as exceptionally deep soffits, roofline asbestos risk management, and rainwater drainage design to name but a few.
