We make life easier for our dealers with a number of optimizations to our portfolio.
This was driven by a consistent further development of the modular system. In specific terms, this means: Applications which used to require special products that had to be stocked by the resellers in small quantities can now be installed with large-volume standard stock items that are used in specific combinations. Customers are thus able to order at a much lower price, as it’s easier to get special price quantities.
One example is the “Alu Tile” roof hook with a replacement metal roof tile. In the future, Schletter will offer a universal fastener, which can be freely combined with any metal roof tile according to the “one fits all” principle. In the past, these products had only been only available as pre-assembled sets.
Similar modular solutions are available for corrugated and trapezoidal sheet metal roofs. For this, we offer ready-made hanger bolt sets, which, in combination with various mounting plates and adapters, cover all common roof shapes. We optimized our trapezoidal sheet system “Single Fix” according to the same principle: In the future ,customers will be able to order and stock larger quantities of the universal trapezoidal sheet metal holder and then combine it with application-specific rails and screws.
The need for custom-made products has been reduced as well: In future, the Fix T and Fix E trapezoidal sheet metal fasteners will no longer be manufactured specifically for each project, but will be provided by Schletter in all common sizes as catalogue products.
