New Product Guide

Minster, part of the Saint-Gobain Group, has launched their biggest ever product guide following a number of key changes in the market and strong customer demand. As one of the UK’s most recognised distributors for specialist insulation, dry lining, roofing and ceilings materials, the guide highlights Minster’s ongoing commitment of delivering quality solutions to the construction industry.

Comprised of 316 pages, the fifth edition of the Guide offers over 9,000 product lines in one convenient place plus demonstrates the breadth and depth of our available range. It includes a much wider roofing offer along with fire protection, acoustics, external facades, thermal insulation, dry lining, ceilings, flooring and for the first time ever, My Comfort building solutions from Saint-Gobain.

Working in collaboration with core suppliers, the guide has been developed to ensure customers have access to an extensive range of quality interior and exterior building solutions. Designed to give the best customer experience, the guide uses performance icons and supplier logos to provide an easy browsing process, while the inclusion of quick check lists in each section aims to help customer purchasing efficiency.

Roofing key area
With the largest range available to date, roofing is a key area that has been significantly developed in the new guide, bringing more choice to the market. There is an expanded range of commercial and domestic flat roofing solutions including torch on felt, single ply, breather membranes, lead, insulation and accessories. This has been incorporated to show Minster’s acknowledgement for key factors set to influence the market over the next few years. These include the impact of expected growth in the industrial, office, retail and leisure sectors as well as adhering to higher energy performance requirements across new and existing buildings driven by EU carbon reduction legislations.

My Comfort
Also included is the brand new launch of ‘My Comfort’; a higher building specification developed by Saint-Gobain which aims to provide improved comfort factors for better health and well-being.

In addition, it will significantly reduce energy consumption and on-going operational and maintenance costs through excellent thermal and acoustic properties, and reduced moisture. Minster stocks Saint-Gobain’s unique range of products, making them the UK’s leading distributor able to deliver simple to install solutions that can help to significantly improve building performance. The My Comfort concept delivers against five comfort factors including thermal, audio, visual, indoor and economic.

Also included within the product guide is the Greenworks training academy, developed by the Building Distribution network of Saint-Gobain, which has grown to become one of the UK’s recognised authorities and market experts in sustainable building solutions. Offering multi-purpose training space and using real-life settings, courses taken through Greenworks are carried out by industry specialists and are in line with customer demand and changes to legislation, product and market requirements.

Courses are not only hosted at the Greenworks Academy based in Birmingham, but since its launch in October 2014, Greenworks now provides mobile training across the UK with its ‘Greenworks Pro Build Tour’ which provides solution based information to the industry.

Lee Cowling, Marketing Manager at Minster said: “We’re thrilled to offer this new product guide to our customers at such a key time within the market and because of the close relationships we hold with our suppliers, we have been able to make this the best it’s ever been. At Minster, we take pride in our technical expertise and product range which we feel is truly reflected in this guide. Our customers can feel confident that they’re not only getting quality products but excellent service and expert knowledge from all our staff.”
