aluplast to set out its 2020 vision for the UK at Fensterbau
aluplast will showcase its expanded product range including a series of new innovations developed specifically for the UK at Fensterbau Frontale 2020.
Held in Nuremberg, Germany 18-21 March, the expo is a global showcase for cutting-edge innovation in window and door design.
Attending with one of the event’s largest presences, aluplast will profile its latest innovations including a series of new products developed specifically for the UK on stand 5, hall 5 at the coming show.
This includes the latest colour options including aluplast’s newly launched premium Jet Black foil finish; Woodec, it’s ultra-realistic premium woodgrain option; Ideal 70 and Ideal 4000, each now available in a grey core to compliment new foil options; the aluplast flush casement; aluskin, its aluminium external cladding system; and Lift-and-Slide the German system house’s ultra-energy-efficient modular lift-and-slide door.
It will also unveil a brand new range of aluminium-effect foils, designed to give installers the opportunity to accurately match aluminium systems in an energy efficient PVC-U product.
“Fensterbau is a truly global event and we’d encourage fabricators and installers to be part of it and come to the aluplast stand and see first-hand how continuing and industry–leading product innovation is delivering new opportunity and already supporting our customers’ growth at home in the UK”, said Ian Cocken, Director of Sales and Marketing, aluplast.
“Right now, our scale is more important than ever because it means that we can continue to invest – and for the long-term – regardless of what is happening in specific local markets. That gives us incredible stability but also gives our customers access to leading-edge innovation in PVC-U building technologies.”
aluplast unveiled its new Jet-Black,‘true black’ finish last month. This follows the launch last year of Woodec, aluplast’s next generation foil, which replicates the natural appearance of timber while combining it with the through-life advantages of PVC-U.
These are available across aluplast’s Ideal 70, Ideal 4000 and Lift-and-Slide ranges, with Lift-and-Slide and the contemporary SquareLine Ideal 4000, also available in aluskin. aluplast’s innovative clip-and-fix external aluminium fascia system, aluskin.
With one of Europe’s most sophisticated and advanced extrusion operations, each also exploits industry leading ecotech extrusion technologies, isolating recycled content in the inner web of the profile leaving a virgin profile wall and pristine surface finish,
With U-values as low as 0.65 W/m2K sustainability is also a key feature of the aluplast Lift-and-Slide door which capable of spanning openings of 6.5m X 2.8m with just two sashes, delivers impressive design flexibility.
Cocken continued: “We’re looking at the sustainability of our products, in life and at end of life. How we make them, how we recover material and use it effectively in a new generation of products – because it supports sales.
“We’re also constantly refining manufacturing process and introducing new installation efficiencies to give more margin back to fabricators and installers, while also helping them to win new business through innovation in product offer and aesthetics.
“It’s a 2020 approach to sustainability, making business sustainable and making product, sustainably – and it’s on show at Fensterbau this coming March.”
