ALUMINIUM Specialist aluminium fabricator brings new product to market A leading specialist aluminium fabricator has brought a new product to market, as it continues to offer its customers the products and support required to win business in the growing aluminium sector. Gloucester based CDW System is known for launching a new product each year, and its latest is Confort 160 (C160), which the fabricator has brought to market together with systems company SAPA. Confort 160 is a high performance, thermally insulated sliding door. Sales of aluminium sliding doors have notably increased at CDW Systems, and Managing Director Jerry Webb says the latest addition is a quality product that will help installers to continue to take advantage of the growing domestic and commercial aluminium sector. Jerry comments: “The aluminium sector represents a huge growth market for installers and we utilise our 22 years’ experience to ensure our customers have a suite of products, and technical support, that can help them take market share and win contracts. “Sliding doors are in demand here, which is why we’ve decided to supply this product, which is highend and technically advanced.” For more information call CDW Systems on 01452 414853or visit Cutting commercial door fabrication time Jack Aluminium Systems’ Jack Door saves fabricators one hour’s productivity for every five thermally improved doors they make. The growing demand for thermally efficient commercial doors can cause a bottleneck in production, as fabricators have to rout through the thermal break. The Jack Door TD68 profile features a unique thermal break design that makes it much quicker and easier to cut during fabrication. However manufacturers were still slowed down by using a CNC machine to rout the ends. So Jack Aluminium worked with its customers and J Tools to design a new end miller, cutting the process time from fifteen minutes to just three. In practice, fabricators can save one hour production time for every five Jack Doors made compared to a typical thermally improved door. “Thermally improved doors are specified on an increasing number of projects so making them more efficient to manufacture is important to us,” says Tim Brookes, production manager at Duplus Architectural Systems. “Making Jack Doors with the new end miller frees off the fabrication line and has improved productivity.” Jeff Pearson, Jack Aluminium’s sales director added: “The new end miller means we can now help customers reduce costs even further.” Phone: 024 7646 7449, Email:, Web: Hitting the heights at Olympic Way Metal Technology has supplied its innovative architectural aluminium products on one of London’s tallest buildings.
