Leading VEKA trade fabricator Modplan has been highlighting the importance of security for some time. Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, says: “Our customers know that security is a huge factor for homeowners and we are proud to have a range of products that help put people’s minds at rest.”
Modplan has Secured by Design accreditation on the casement windows in all three of its systems: Matrix 58, Matrix 70 and Matrix FS. It also has the accreditation on its vertical sliders, 70mm residential doors, 70mm French doors and Imagine inline patio doors and Imagine bifold doors. Heidi comments: “New build developments built to Secured by Design guidelines are half as likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage, which demonstrates what a powerful and reassuring accreditation this is. What’s more, Secured by Design status also means a product satisfies Document Q requirements.”
For further peace of mind, Modplan uses Yale hardware on its casement windows, residential doors and French doors. Heidi says: “Yale is a household name, which our customers tell us is an extremely reassuring factor for homeowners. What’s more, our installers can add further value to their offering because every casement window fitted with a Yale shootbolt and Yale hinges is covered by the free Yale Secure Guarantee Scheme. This offers them up to £1,000 insurance excess, £1,000 compensation, £1,000 towards repair or replacement and up to £250 refund on call-out fees should they be victim to a break-in. To be covered by the guarantee, installers or homeowners simply need to register their product on the Yale website.”
To complete a trio of value-added benefits, all Modplan’s products can offer a 10 year insurance-backed guarantee through Network VEKA. Heidi says: “Security doesn’t just mean crime prevention. It also means peace of mind that a homeowner’s investment in home improvement products will be covered no matter what. The 10 year IBG is a selling point we know our customers value.”
Modplan has built its business by providing quality at every level. All its products are manufactured at its Newport headquarters to ensure quality and reliability – and, as the security features on its products demonstrate, these are backed up with accreditations, guarantees and warranties that provide the peace of mind that installers value and homeowners want.
