Marshall-Tufflex has launched a new pattress product, the ‘Tufflex Tile’. Underpinning the company’s commitment to offering quality solutions for its customers, the new product has been designed to take the hassle out of pattress installations with a ready to use solution that is suitable for all applications.
Developed and launched in response to customer feedback, the new Tufflex Tile has been designed to transform the way installers work on ceiling systems across every sector and application, whether it be installing spotlights, smoke detectors, PIR sensors or speakers.
Notably, the new solution is manufactured with Correx instead of traditional plywood or MDF, making it extremely lightweight, yet strong and easy to cut or drill. What’s more, the Tufflex Tile is pre-cut to the standard 595mm2 ceiling tile aperture; not only reducing cutting and sawing time on site, but also the levels of dust that are generated when cutting wood to size. The material is also flame retardant and self-extinguishing, offering further benefits for the end user and removing a key component of the fire triangle.
The Hastings based manufacturer has considered every detail for its latest product launch, with pre-chamfered edges for an easy and seamless fit. Thanks to its slimline and lightweight design, the Tufflex Tile is easy to handle, store and transport.
Martin Russell, Group Product Manager at Marshall-Tufflex says: “For over 80 years, Marshall-Tufflex has led the way in areas of product research, development and innovation and we are delighted to introduce this new category to our portfolio. By listening to customer feedback, we recognised that using plywood or MDF as a pattress when installing electrical products is not only arduous and time consuming for professionals, but also poses significant fire risk for the end user, so we have worked closely with installers to develop this modern, flame retardant alternative, as a quick and easy pattress solution.”
