aluplast has agreed an exclusive supply agreement with Local Home Solutions for the ecotech Ideal 70.
Set up in 2009, the Huddersfield-based fabricator has enjoyed sustained growth, to manufacture more than 100 frames each week, supplying trade and retail markets throughout Huddersfield, Wakefield and Bradford, as well as the Midlands.
The company switched over to aluplast in May on the strength of the quality of its green market offering, ecotech 70.
Richard Shaw, Partner, Local Home Solutions, said: “We switched because we were impressed by the product quality and could see that it offered our customers a number of benefits.
“It’s a sculptured system and offers a very good match to the system that we used to supply, it’s good to fit but it isn’t over exposed in the area compared to some other systems.
“But for us the single biggest factor was the quality of finish. The ecotech 70 uses recycled content in the core so it has strong green credentials but it doesn’t use it in any structural elements or surface finish where virgin material are used and the surface quality is absolutely fantastic.”
ecotech 70 is manufactured by aluplast specifically for the UK market and like the Ideal 70, is a fully-sculptured five chamber system.
It features an optimum 44mm flush triple-glazed beading option, which contributes to up to a WER A++ rating. Fully integrated hardware and reinforcement, also make it a proven Part Q, PAS24:2012 and Secured by Design system but its USP is its recycled content - uniquely hidden away within its core.
aluplast uses pre and post extrusion material and post fabrication PVC-U purchased from known source post installation pelletized, PVC-U. Two compound screw feeds then push recycled and virgin material simultaneously through a single dye to create the profile.
The process locks recycled material away from areas of the frame visible to the end-user or which perform a structural role. This means that the face is manufactured from virgin compound, delivering a pristine surface finish.
Ian Cocken, Director of Sales and Marketing, aluplast said: “We have a very different system of extruding recycled material compared to the methodologies used by most systems companies.
“Although we are in effect co extruding virgin and recycled material, it’s only the former, the virgin material which goes into the surface or structural elements of the frame. This guarantees structural integrity but also delivers a consistent and premium surface quality.”
