As more building professionals are looking online for product advice, guidance and technical information, Tradeline, the range of professional drywall solutions exclusive to CCF, has invested in a full digital overhaul to support customers.
The new online resources include brand-new System Selector and Product Estimator web pages, which have been designed to be used in tandem to find the right Tradeline solution and to also specify the correct quantity of products needed.
The System Selector helps users to navigate the extensive range of Tradeline’s solutions and select the best tested system configuration based on building requirements such as fire, acoustic and durability performance. With over 400 UKAS accredited Tradeline systems available, this is an extremely useful tool which has been developed to improve searchability and save time.
Once the correct Tradeline system configurations have been identified, the Product Estimator can then be used to help building professionals order the correct quantity of metal, fixing and finishing solutions for ceilings, walls and partitions. To do this, users simply input data provided by the System Selector. This helps to avoid oversizing and wastage plus the details of which can then be downloaded into a convenient order form ready to be presented to CCF.
To support installation best-practice, a downloadable iOS and Android Quality Assurance App has also been developed by Tradeline. The app provides complete installation guidance to help contractors follow compliant installation practices. It also requires contractors to submit proof of installation best practice which will be recorded. This offers extra assurance for developers that quality assurance is being followed at installation stage and mitigates risk.
Jolyon Berg, Head of Technical at CCF, commented: “The introduction of these digital resources is a direct result of the increasing need for digitisation in the building and construction industry. It is important that we continue to meet the changing needs of our customers who now more than ever are relying on online product, technical and ordering information. To add further value, our new Tradeline Quality Assurance App has been developed to put installation best-practice first. With the industry moving towards the need to prove that the right products have been specified and then installed correctly, it is hugely important to us that both Tradeline and CCF contribute to ways of proving quality assurance. This groundbreaking app will help establish the ‘golden thread’ of building information and bring reassurance for contractors, main contractors and developers.”
