Ron Kirk Joinery, airTec benefits
Why did Hayden move to laser edge tape?
“The benefits airTec promised were compelling,” explains Hayden. “Even better, they’ve all turned out to be true.
For a start, it seals the board better. There’s no clean up. No excess glue. Also, we can charge a premium for it. And it brings all of our high-gloss work under our control.” This last point is a signifi cant one. “With a lacquered kitchen we were dependent on the painter. Any damage or mistakes found at installation meant getting a re-cut panel back to the painter. Relying on others affected our timing, and if they were busy there could be signifi cant delays and costs. Now everything is done in-house so stuff like this can be fixed by us, and quickly.”
