The Adjufix system is used to install more than half of the windows and doors in Norway and Sweden. It was designed to improve the quality of window installation, but really took off when installers discovered that it saved them a significant part of their time.
Adjufix consists of a hollow sleeve with a heavy gauge thread formed on the outside, which is normally installed by tapping its own thread into a pilot hole drilled in the door or window frame. A fixing is then inserted through the Adjufix sleeve to permenently anchor the frame to the building structure. The position of the frame can be adjusted by rotating Adjufix.
From a simple adjustment device with internal and external threads, Adjufix has developed into a complete system for window and door installation, whether the window frame is made from wood, uPVC or aluminium for user in a timber, brick or steel building. Adjufix can be fitted during window or door manufacture or on site. Because it can be adjusted at any time after installation it is ideal where windows are supplied already fitted into wall panels. Adjufix allows complete 3 dimensional adjustment if any frame, effectively providing a firm temporary positioning. Permenent fixings are then installed through the hollow Adjufix sleeve, yet still allow even years later. The system includes special mounting tools which ensure that each frame is installed with exactly the same reveal depth throughout a complete project.
Whilst primarily designed to install doors and windows, Adjufix can also be used to provide and adjustable fixing between two wall panels and to allow levelling of individual panels. It is also now being used by Proctor's of Blairgowrie to install acoustic battens, where positional adjustment can be critical.
Adjufix is manufactured by Kartro, a member of the ITW group since 2007.
