ALUMINIUM Totally Entertaining Experience »»One of the newest food experiences in London can be found at Broadgate Circle near to Liverpool Street Station. The venue offers a diverse collection of restaurants, cafes, bars, street food traders and a gym. The construction makes extensive use of natural limestone with aluminium windows and doors supplied by Aluprof and installed by Linder Facades. The result is a high quality development fit for the city. Completed in early 2015, all aluminium profiles and pressings have been naturally anodised in C34 Bronze, which complements the natural limestone whilst offering a sustainable and very resilient finish. Aluprof systems specified on the project included the MBSR50N curtain wall system with its distinctive rounded profile design and the main entrance door system MB-86 with a hidden leaf assembly offering clean lines into the curtain wall system whilst maintaining heavy duty hardware with high security locking options. Aluprof UK head office and extensive distribution centre is located in Altrincham, Cheshire. Aluprof ’s systems are increasingly being specified on a wide range of residential and commercial projects across the UK. Systems are designed, fabricated and installed by selected, specially trained companies, to ensure each fabricated product meets Aluprof exacting standards.

C O M Sliders UK, the specialist manufacturer of inline sliding, bi-folding and composite doors, has reported sustained growth on the back of product innovation and continuing investment. »»The company said that increased demand for its aluminum bi-fold and inline sliding patio door and window ranges, had contributed to an increase in turnover 10%. Ian Longbottom, Chairman, Sliders UK, said: “We saw incredible growth in demand for aluminium bi-folding doors and inline sliding doors last year, with volume up 225% on 2013, so to have built on this this financial year is a real achievement. “This growth has been replicated across product ranges, driven by renewed consumer confidence and an increasing number of new build starts. We see this continuing into 2016.” Sliders UK now manufactures a comprehensive range of ALUK products at its state-of-the art manufacturing facility. In addition to its bi-folding door and patio door ranges, this includes commercial, residential and French doors, residential casement and steel replacement windows. The first manufacturer to launch either an SBD inline sliding or bi-fold door in the UK, Sliders UK has also committed significant investment to the development of its Ultimate Range. Including the Ultimate aluminium bi-folding door, slim-sightline Ultimate Aspect PVCu bi-fold door, Ultimate inline patio door and the Ultimate composite door, it features Secured by Design and PAS24:2012 approvals as standard. Ian continued: “We have built our reputation on quality and service but also on security. Changes to the Building Regulations and the introduction of Part Q in the autumn make this more important than ever, because it creates a regulatory requirement to supply a PAS24:2012 or SBD approved door.
