County Durham fabricator and installer AC Aluminium has recently installed a 9 metre wide anthracite grey aluminium patio door in a home in County Durham using the KLS patio system from Exlabesa Building Systems. Carl Buckingham, of AC Aluminium, said: “The door looks stunning. We’re delighted with the results – and so is the customer.”
Carl says large aperture aluminium patio doors, as featured in this property, are a growth market for his company and are overtaking bi-fold doors as the homeowner favourite. “In the UK, patio doors are more often closed than open due to our changing seasons. With a sliding patio you can have a much larger glass area than on a bi-fold, so the views are much less interrupted. Demand for large aperture patios has gained momentum in the last couple of years and we are seeing little signs of this trend slowing down.”
The KLS patio system that AC Aluminium used delivers all the benefits fabricators and installers can expect from an Exlabesa Building Systems product. It features an intelligent design and is engineered for quality fabrication and ease of installation.
AC Aluminium has been manufacturing Exlabesa Building Systems products for three years and Carl appreciates what the company has to offer. “We like working with Exlabesa. The products are very easy to manufacture and install and they have common ancillaries too. The product quality is exceptional and gives our markets what they need. This latest installation was a perfect example – the KLS system enabled us to manufacture a 9 metre wide patio that was able to take the necessary weight.”
Exlabesa Building Systems is one of UK’s leading aluminium systems houses and offers a wide range of profiles that add value to every sector. All systems are extruded in its UK facility in Doncaster and General Manager Paul Benn says this is an important factor. “We have complete control from start to finish, which means we can guarantee everything from quality to delivery times. Our customers depend on this reliability.”
The aluminium sector continues to grow. And as AC Aluminium’s experience shows, it pays to work with an aluminium systems house that can deliver the solutions the market and the consumer is looking for.
