Architectural ironmonger BJ Waller is helping joinery manufacturers to take advantage of the growth in the aluminium timber market, with the simple and stylish Italian system, Alunova. The aluclad system can be used to turn joinery manufacturers existing timber window and doors into sophisticated aluminium clad timber products.
BJ Waller can tailor the aluclad system to the design requirements of each specific project. The intelligent system is supplied pre-cut and welded to the joinery manufacturers window and door measurements, so it can just be clipped straight onto the existing timber frame. Window manufacturers can use their existing tooling and there’s no investment required in stock or extra machinery.
“In our conversations with joinery manufacturers, we know that they are looking for easy to manufacture systems which adds real value to their range,” says Luke Piper, Managing Director, BJ Waller. “The Alunova system makes aluminium cladding really easy for joinery manufacturers. It can be individually designed to each specific timber window or door suite, it’s available in any RAL colour and offers a fast turnaround time. It’s a great way for joinery manufacturers to win orders in the growing aluminium timber market.”
By bringing the modern look and low maintenance of the Alunova aluminium on the outside, with the insulating benefits and warm feel of timber on the inside, Alunova can be used to create stunning aluminium timber windows.
The system is also ideal for the Imago timber Lift & Slide door from AGB, which BJ Waller distributes. Alunova and AGB have worked closely together to create a unique aluclad system to suit Imago. The two products combined create the perfect balance between appealing aesthetics and a really thermally efficient performance. Imago’s slimline timber frame offers wide span doors and glazing to complete the aluclad range for joinery manufacturers.
“Reports show that the aluminium and timber market will continue to grow over the next few years,” adds Luke, “This is why BJ Waller brings together the benefits of the two intelligently engineered products.”
