PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS ALUMINIUM ALTERNATIVE IN 50 SHADES OF GREY » » MANCHESTER-BASED FABRICATOR Force 8 has always been quick to adapt to the latest trends in the market and has recently announced the introduction of its smooth finish composite doors, which bear a striking resemblance – especially when in shades of grey – to an aluminium door that would typically cost around four times as much. The doors are available in 50 different shades of grey, including various shades of silver grey, then anything between black and white, which the company can reproduce with a sample or RAL number. The trailblazing company is offering the smooth finish across its entire door range but feels that it is especially suited to the ultra- contemporary Decadence range. Dennis Sumner, Managing Director at Force 8, said: “The trend in windows ‘an ultra-high end look without the price tag’ and doors for sleek lines in shades of grey continues to grow, but many homeowners simply can’t justify the cost of an aluminium door as while they may look stunning, they are prohibitively expensive to many. By combining our new smooth finish with one of the doors from our Decadence range, it is possible to create an ultra-high-end look without the price tag.” www.force8.uk Big Air: Teleflex ventilation for Oxford University » » A BUILDING SEEN AS A tool in Oxford University’s search for new medical discoveries is achieving the vented air requirements to maintain a healthy environment thanks to openers provided by Teal Products.
