Redland at Eco Build 2012

Our presence at Ecobuild this year was even more a success than last years exhibition.  This year we had our Redland Extreme Challenge taking centre stage.  The concept behind this was to demonstrate the rigorous testing that goes on behind the scenes at our Redland manufacturing centres, to ensure that all our products are tested to the extreme!
Strength, longevity, and durability are the 3 core unique selling points of Redland products.

Redland products are designed for British roofs, and the recent launch of our newly designed hook proves this point.  Our hook is specifically designed for UK roof structures and weather conditions, and is suitable for retro fit and new build on most manufacturers roof tiles.  They are ideal for UK trussed rafters, and will not damage the roof structure or covering.

"......its all about strength and stamina..."
The Redland challenge was based on strength and stamina.   Over 220 people took part in our challenge, which was to cycle a distance of 750m, in as fast a time as possible, on the Watt bikes.  These bikes were on hire to us from Watt Bikes, and Alistair, our "bike man" did a great job of encouraging all those that walked by, to test their pedal power!

It was a great day for our staff as they had the opportunity to speak face to face with many architects, contractors, merchants and housebuilders within the roofing industry about range of photovoltaic roofing solutions.

So a big thank you to all those that took part in the challenge.  For every entrant that pushed those pedals to their extreme, we donated 50p towards our chosen charity, Habitat for Humanity.
