Retro Fix

Simply Fix is a new and innovative product specifically designed for the retrofit and maintenance of fittings into external wall insulation.

Gone are the days of costly and time consuming timber pattresses in insulated façade design! With Simply Fix, you can “simply fix” fixtures and fittings directly into newly insulated façades using our unique seven step process.

Until “Simply Fix” there has been no easy means of retrospectively installing fixtures and fittings to the outer skin of a building that has been externally insulated. The soft, compressive nature of the insulant is not designed to carry any significant weight and consequently, pre-mounting of a load bearing pattress in pre-determined locations across the façade is always required.

Pattresses by their nature are not “good” design and offer a low technology solution to a common problem. Thermal bridging, degradation of the timber, bleeding and misplacement leading to future maintenance problems, are all common issues associated to pattressing.

With Simply Fix, the facade installer can cost effectively offer homeowners and social landlords external fittings anywhere on the façade without pre-determining locations. What’s more, Simply Fix removes the performance, design and maintenance risks presented by pattressing. Proven to deliver savings of up to £90 per property, Simply Fix offers you, the installer tangible benefits not only in quality but value.

Fully endorsed by leading European system designers and recognised by all major warranty providers, Simply Fix is the new, “modern” solution for your Retro Fix needs.

There has never been a better time for homeowners to invest in renewable energy and in particular Solar PV. Not only do homeowners benefit from free, self-generated electricity but any surplus is sold back to the National grid and you get paid for it via the Feed-in Tariff.
