ALUMINIUM don’t miss out on the trend for aluminium Nova Aluminium is a Bristol-based, trade only supplier of quality aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling solutions. The company fabricates solely from the comprehensive range of Smart Aluminium products and has done so since Nova was formed in early 2005. Window systems include options suitable for all architectural, commercial and domestic projects with innovative designs such as the new Heritage range and the popular Alitherm 700 parallel window. Nova’s aluminium window fabrication service is proving particularly useful to a large number of companies which tend to only supply PVCu windows but which are now seeing a definite trend to consider the aluminium alternative. Nova has set up a specific “White Line” production facility in addition to its impressive assembly lines to offer glazing companies a rapid turnaround on white casement windows manufactured from Smarts Alitherm systems. Account Manager Christian Sillick explains: “The service we offer is often utilised as an overflow option for companies which are at factory capacity or who have taken on a large contract so as not to disrupt their normal workload” 70 APR 2014 Doors are supplied for all applications with at present the most popular being from the choice of Bi-Folding doors available from the range which suits all markets in both the commercial and domestic sectors.

Curtain walling is an operation for which Nova has designated 6000 sq. ft. of factory space specifically geared for the production of all of the range of curtain walling systems offered by Smarts.

The company currently operates a fleet of five delivery vehicles. NOVA operates from a 35,000 plus sq. ft. facility just off the M32 motorway in St Jude, Bristol, employs more than 50 people and is well-equipped with the latest machinery to ensure fast moving production lines.
