AluK publishes guide for specifiers

As it celebrates its 25th anniversary in the UK, leading aluminium systems house AluK has just published a brand new specification guide for its complete range of fenestration products.

Available free to architects, specifiers and consultants or available to download via the AluK website, the 68-page guide has been produced to illustrates AluK’s collaborative approach to working.

It outlines how AluK appoints a dedicated project consultant team to work directly with specifiers, providing expert fenestration guidance through stages 2-4 of the RIBA Plan of Work and support in the form of BIM and in-house designed REVIT and IFC Objects.

It also highlights the two dedicated AluK Design Studios in London and at its factory in Chepstow where the entire product range is on display and where clients and specifiers can meet the AluK team and attend networking and educational events.

AluK has always put collaboration, service and support firmly at the heart of its offering to specifiers in the UK, alongside expertise in manufacture and innovation in product design. Its entire product range is outlined in the guide then with full specifications, CAD cross sections and thermal profiles for each system.

This includes: unitised, capped, structurally bonded and structurally glazed curtain walling systems, an extensive choice of window systems in a range of depths, styles and configurations, commercial entrance doors, flush residential doors and ground floor treatments, and both sliding and folding doors.

Marketing Director Sioned Roberts hopes the guide will give specifiers a clearer picture of what sets AluK apart from other systems houses in the UK. She says: “The guide is intended to be much more than a product catalogue. It communicates the scale of our ongoing investment in our UK manufacturing facility, our commitment to precision design and product quality and, above all, our ability to add value to the design and specification process via our experienced team of experts.”
