Seven of the hundred plus merchants and builders across the UK who took part in a competition to see who could be among the fastest to install Actis Hybris insulation in a timber stud wall will be getting a special present from Santa this year!
Beat the Team competitors pitted their skills against the sales team at Actis – with all those doing so more speedily entered into a regional prize draw to win a Playstation 4 and FIFA 17. Everyone, regardless of their speed, was put into the national prize draw hat!
All regional sales managers were equipped with a timber stud wall which they took on their visits to customers, who were then challenged to beat their installation times – filmed on a smartphone and uploaded to YouTube and via the Actis Hybrid range simulator.
Not only did the contestants have a lot of fun ‘playing’ with the Actis Hybris, they also found out how easy it is to install the clean, lightweight and thermally efficient insulation.
Winners were Assad Kadri from Building Services for the South East and East, Mark Squires from Cornish Heritage Builders for the South West and South Central, Graeme Boot from Jewson in Coventry for the Midlands, Callum Cowham from Burton Roofing for the East Midlands and South Yorkshire, Nathan Davies from Jewson in Altrincham for the North West and North Wales and Liam Hartley from Eco Timber Frame systems in Yorkshire for the North East and Scotland. The national winner picked randomly from all entrants was Dave Starkey from Minster, Birmingham.
The competition followed the launch in the autumn of a new series of How To videos giving bite size tips on how to install the product in a range of scenarios, which can be found at the website: www.insulation-actis.com
