GLASS&SEALEDUNITS – standing out from the rest in decorative glass for composite doors Dual Aspect Glass has now firmly established itself as market leader and innovators in the field of decorative glass for composite doors. With new offices and production plants the company now has four state of the art manufacturing centres and a finish unit distribution site in Barnsley. This month, Dual Aspect launched its new android friendly website to showcase its products online. MD Jeremy Town, comments: “We have now become a key supplier to many composite door manufacturers and offer through our bespoke and innovative products the chance for suppliers to be different than their competitors. We wanted to highlight these differences through our marketing and hence the timing of the launch of the new website is ideal. The website has been specifically designed with high quality large images so as to be easily viewable on all tablet and mobile devices. “All our ranges are made in the UK – and we have patented and exclusive products that cost up to half the price of many imported alternatives. Our ‘Made in the UK’ ideology simply results in better supply for our customers as we are never left out in the cold ‘a key supplier to many’ waiting for a boat to arrive from far off shores. We also now stock virtually all of our ranges and can offer super quick turnarounds with a fantastic service.” Dual Aspect Glass also recently launched a new coating system for composite doors that is easily applied using a simple spraying process. Jeremy adds: “Our new colour system for composite doors in my view is simply the best by a clear mile. A whole decade of test and pedigree comes with this great process. If you have ever sprayed a composite door or plan to, you must see this groundbreaking system and I am certain you will never look back. “Furthermore new technique such as expensive-looking wood washes and metallics can be achieved unlike anything I have seen before.” or call 07702 308374.
