aluplast has launched its highly flexible new Ideal 4000 SquareLine casement window system, signalling the start of a significant expansion of its UK offer.
The 70mm system is defined by a contemporary ‘square-edge’ profile and the flexibility that it delivers, as a fully integrated product offering.
This includes Aluskin, a highly innovative ‘clip-and-fix’ aluminium finishing system. Building on proven technology, it allows PVC-U fabricators to manufacture an aluminium-clad PVC-U casement window without the requirement for specialist equipment – opening up access to new market sectors.
Delivering strong aesthetics and slim contemporary sightlines, it also allows aluminium system fabricators to manufacture a thermally efficient WER A+ window.
Ian Cocken, Director of Sales and Marketing, aluplast said: “The Ideal 4000 is a cutting edge PVC-U system which delivers contemporary square-line sightlines and great performance in a thermally efficient five chamber chamfered product.
“It also opens up rapidly growing new markets to PVC-U fabricators and manufacturers of aluminium systems, through aluskin. This brings proven technology to a dedicated UK offer and can be manufactured without specialist machinery by PVC-U manufacturers.
“At the same time, it allows manufacturers of aluminium systems to access areas of the market that they would be excluded from by the thermal performance of traditional aluminium systems.”
Tested to Part Q, PAS24:2012 and Secured by Design Specifications, Ideal 4000 also features aluplast’s pioneering eco-tech option.
This uses a highly innovative dual compound screw feed and single dye extrusion system to bring recycled content intro the manufacture of new products.
The Ideal 4000 is available in 27 foiled finishes in addition to the Aluskin aluminium cladding system. Foiled finishes are available on lead times of just a few days on stock colours and an industry leading 15 days on special orders, with no minimum order, no-surcharge and no set-up costs.
According to the latest Fabricator and Installer Market Report from Insight Data there continues to be a definite shift towards aluminium among fabricators and installers. They argue that this is evidenced by the growth seen by aluminium systems companies, “. . . Which have achieved dramatic growth in sales and profit . . ”, the report says.
Cocken continues: “The ideal 4000 is first and foremost a cutting-edge PVC-U system, which with the Ideal 70, Ideal 70 eco-tech and our foil ranges, gives aluplast a market leading PVC-U system offer.
“It also levels the playing field. Aluskin is a ‘transformer’ product. If PVC-U fabricators want to manufacture an aluminium-clad system they can, without investment in expensive specialist machinery.
“It also allows aluminium fabricators to manufacture a cost effective thermally efficient WER A+ window. This gives the Ideal 4000 reach in not only residential but also commercial sectors – it’s an incredibly flexible offering and a building block for our own and the future growth of our customers.”
