Citing booming demand for high-quality aluminium doors, windows and conservatories, fast-growing fabricator Astraseal has shifted aluminium production from its main factory to a separate 25k square foot facility. Previously allocated only 5k square feet of factory space, the move increases the fabricator’s aluminium capacity by five times.
This development comes as Astraseal continues to invest in expanding its impressive aluminium portfolio. The firm has recently added the Stratus thermal lantern roof and the Smarts Ultraglide inline slider system to an already extensive selection of products from Smarts, Reynaers and Synseal.
“Demand for aluminium has exploded in the last few years,” commented Zac Nedimovic, Astraseal marketing manager. “Partly, that’s down to advances in technology. Once, aluminium windows weren’t great – offering poor thermal efficiency, for example. Since the development of the polyamide thermal break, that’s completely changed. Another major factor has been the ability to provide aluminium in a huge range of colours, making it a fashionable, high status material frequently used in Grand Designs-style home improvement projects.”
“For both of those reasons, the aluminium market shows no sign of slowing. In fact, at Astraseal, we expect it to continue growing – and that’s why we’ve sought to shift aluminium over to its own dedicated facility. In doing so, we’ve not only massively increased our aluminium capacity, but streamlined production across the whole business.”
Today, the fabricator can offer a huge array of products, from the most respected aluminium systems companies in the industry. From Smarts, it supplies the Alitherm casement window system, Visifold bi-folding doors, the Visoline window and door system, the Smartwall curtain walling and screen system, the Shopline shop front system, the Visoglide sliding door system and the VS600 Vertical sliding system. From Reynears, it provides the CF68 and CF77 bi-folding doors, and CP130 and CP155 patio doors.
