HARDWARE& SECURITY DEMAND RISES FOR NEMESIS » » KENRICK HAS SEEN A HEALTHY rise in demand for its Nemesis multi-point window locking system for aluminium profiles. The company has credited its growing sales to the rapidly increasing popularity of aluminium in the domestic market. Steve Williams, sales director at Kenrick, explains: “When it comes to windows and doors, aluminium continues to follow an incredible growth pattern and its predicted to reach an all-time high of 220,000 frames a year by 2020. This upward trend has driven demand for Nemesis and sales have grown tenfold since the launch, which is a phenomenal result. “The market is moving towards higher value products, but the aluminium sector has been hampered by the lack of choice in multi-point window locking systems for aluminium profiles. Nemesis has attracted this wave of new customers because it brings greater choice, but it also delivers on quality, performance and reliability which are vital at the higher end of the market.
