The company offers a range of blinds, timber loft ladders, flashings, electric operation kits and is the UK’s sole manufacturer of roof windows.
Technical Specification Manager Mitchell Smallwood-Rose personally delivered Keylite flashing kits to the college and had roof windows delivered by courier. The donations are set to benefit 48 first and second year roofing apprentices at the college of building.
Chris Messenger, Lecturer for roof slate and tiling at the College, said: “The donations will ensure that apprentices are trained to install roof windows correctly in College and on site collecting NVQ evidence to achieve their Qualification.”
Prior to this, Mitchell delivered a CPD on Keylite roof window installation to 12 first year apprentices. Chris commented on how the students enjoyed the professional presentation and fitting the roof window and flashing kit at the end of the CPD.
Keylite’s Brand Executive, Samantha Brown, said: “We are particularly impressed with the work of LCB in its dedication to construction and the built environment. Keylite believes in the importance of apprenticeships addressing the skills shortage and want to do anything in our power to aid this scheme.
“The apprentices will gain invaluable experience of installing roof windows. As well as this, it is beneficial for the apprentices to feel the benefits of Keylite’s easy installation features. These include Keylie’s unique Flick Fit Brackets, enabling the installer to get the window from the box to the roof in under 2 minutes, Sash Finger Springs which enables the window to be refitted into the frame in one easy motion and the innovative Expanding Thermal Collar which solves the issue of the 20mm gap around the window.”
