To show its continued commitment to aluminium fabricators and installers, VBH has joined the Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB). CAB is dedicated to promoting the use of aluminium in building and working with standards, regulation and practice within this sector.
Aluminium is a growth area for VBH, and now accounts for 25% of the business. The company offers a plethora of hardware solutions for aluminium windows, including outward opening casement windows, Tilt & Turn windows, reversible windows and VBH’s greenteQ Suite and Coastline furniture ranges, with 10 and 25-year guarantees respectively. The upgraded Coastline range is made from 304 grade stainless-steel, offering excellent corrosion resistance in four finishes.
For aluminium doors, VBH’s greenteQ Aspire range is suitable for large and heavy aluminium sashes and comes in 9 finishes to suit any colour sash. In addition, the Clearspan bi-fold door hardware has been designed for use specifically on slimline aluminium systems Its own slimline design is unobtrusive and maximises the clean lines of aluminium installations. Nordic Aluminium, based in Leeds is one of many VBH customers who use greenteQ’s Clearspan hardware. Graham Howatson, Nordic’s Operations Director, comments: “VBH has worked alongside us to meet PAS24 test standards, mandatory on new build houses. It passed first time!”
Rob Norman, Systems Sales Manager, works closely with aluminium systems companies on new product development, testing for BSI and PAS24 and creating tailored product packages. Product training and technical support is also just a quick call or email away.
Simon Monks, Managing Director at VBH comments: “VBH’s commitment to the aluminium sector continues to grow and we’re looking forward to working in partnership with CAB to promote the use of aluminium in buildings. The CAB gives fabricators and installers some fantastic training and networking opportunities, and we’re pleased to be a part of it!”
