New Chain Added to BPL Range - RC0325

Due to many customer requests, BPL have added the Teleflex chain to our existing range of manual cable operated controls.  

This inconspicuous opener features a fully retracting stainless steel chain with quick release window attachments to facilitate window cleaning. With an internal projection of 64mm (2 1⁄2”) the enclosed chain case permits ease of operation whilst allowing close fitting of curtains or blinds.

Available in 250mm (10”) the chain opener will remain as rigid as a peg stay when extended throughout its working lifetime.   The all metal chain opener has a high resistant polyester powder white finish with stainless steel chain for greater strength, durability and corrosion resistance.  

The stainless steel chain together with quick release brackets are improvements on the F300A chain which, is now being phased in favour of the Teleflex version.

Forklift Training 30/10/15

All the Building Profiles warehouse staff have just completed their forklift refresher training.

This training took place over one working day and comprised of both written and practical exams. It is very important that not only are our staff qualified to use the forklift, but their knowledge is refreshed every 3 years  by the excellent training carried out by Forward Forklift Training Ltd.

This Training is recognised by The Health and Safety Executive and the course reminded them how to safely and effectively operate a Reach forklift truck with the basic skill requirements and job safety knowledge required for safe and effective operation of Reach trucks. The course included machine familiarisation, controls, daily checks and battery procedures, steering, load weight assessment and handling, stacking racking, awkward loads and vehicle loading, and unloading and much more.

Well done to all the BPL staff that took part for completing the course!

FO0849 - High Level Operator
01 Oct 2014
FO0849 New High Level Operator (HLO) For Folding Openers:

Extended folding openers are popular because they open to 315mm giving much better ventilation than the standard 112/111 series.

However, there has always been one big problem and that is they were not suitable for high level operation. 

Well that was until recently when the High Level operator was devised!

The new High Level Operator (HLO) solves the problem of achieving increased ventilation with folding openers at transom level.  In the past extended folding openers could not be used at high level as it was extremely difficult to close and open the window with the pole operator.

However, now with the all new HLO (Patent Applied For) closing extended folding openers fitted to windows above head height is now simple to achieve.

Call our sales team on 01789 414 044 for more information. download pdf FO0849 - High Level Operator Data Sheet 1

Folding Opener News

New Product: FO0816

It also means that they can purchase one tandem bar to suit any of their needs just by cutting them to their required size and adding the drill holes.
The code for the 3000mm undrilled bar length is FO0816.

NVQ Business Improvement Techniques Level 2
MORE than two thirds of the employees at Building Profiles have recently been awarded certificates for successfully completing their NVQ Level Two in Business Improvement Techniques. 

The training, developed with and delivered by Resource Development International covered a range of business areas including, continuous Improvement, team working, problem solving and workplace organisation. 

The training endorses the fundamental skills required to continue our business success and to excel in our support for our customers. The structure and the pace of the training encouraged interaction, collaboration and a positive learning environment. 

Resource Development International trainer Jim Amphlet said: “We are pleased with the level of commitment and engagement from Building Profiles and its employees. Everyone who undertook training found it interesting and useful and we are delighted that Building Profiles has invested in their employees and has clearly demonstrated its commitment to training.” 

Building Profiles General Manager, Richard Fraser said: “At Building Profiles we are continually looking at new ways of enhancing the learning experience and professional development of our employees as part of our integrated business development programme”. 

“Due to our partnership with Resource Development International and the NVQ initiative being so successful, we are investigating other forms of training. With many companies having to produce ‘more for less’ we must continue to invest in our existing work force enhancing existing skills and developing new ones.” 
“We have seen significant improvements in the key skills of our employees, the training has enhanced our employees communication skills, encouraged them to be more flexible, to care for others, to take responsibility and, perhaps above all else, to work in teams”
Angela achieves cycling ambition
25 Aug 2009
Angela achieves cycling ambition
Our very own Angela Torres has just completed a marathon cycle ride from Lands End to John O’ Groats. With just two months training and a new touring bike she cycled for 13 days averaging 70 miles every day with the longest day clocking up an exhausting 92 miles.

Angela started her epic journey at Lands End on 4th July and arrived at John O’ Groats on 16th July. On day two she suffered a damaged ligament to her left knee and had to take anti-inflammatories and pain killers for the duration of the trip. She also suffered a nasty fall on day three, her 47th birthday which left her with a massive bruise on her hip and thigh.

Angela said “For several years it had been my ambition to cycle from Lands End to John O’ Groats but for one reason or another I had not got around to achieving this ambition. This year though I decided it was going to be my year! I already knew from other cyclists’ accounts of the journey that Cornwall was going to be very challenging because of the vast amount of hills to climb. We had to put up with the rain, the wind and the cold – a typical British summer; it was very hard going indeed.”

Angela’s brother, Mike demonstrated true brotherly love by accompanying her. But both said that they had seen the most beautiful sights including the Cornish Coast, the Mendip Hills and Ironbridge, but they voted Waddington the prettiest village of the whole trip.

Angela continued “We met some very kind people along the way, we shared a camping field with a horse called Cheeky and enjoyed spectacular views along Scotland’s East Coast road. We even had a massive hail storm which settled on the ground and looked like snow. It was a great relief to arrive finally at John O’ Groats. I was absolutely ecstatic to have finished and so glad I didn’t have to get back on the bike the next day!”
