Garnalex, the company that’s been attracting attention for the sheer scale of its investment in aluminium, and its ambition to re-invent aluminium windows and doors from the ground up for the 2020s, will launch its innovative Sheerline® window and door system in Q1 2020.
“Garnalex’ team of technical experts has redesigned the aluminium window from scratch, and the Sheerline system will revolutionise the way aluminium windows are fabricated, installed and sold,” says Garnalex CEO Roger Hartshorn. “We’re on a journey to transform fabricators’ and installers’ experience of buying aluminium systems and aluminium windows, by making them easier, faster and better to fabricate and install, and by making it easier to sell residential aluminium windows and doors. We also set out to create a very beautiful window, designed to appeal to installers and homeowners.”
Garnalex will begin extruding the Sheerline system in Q1 2020 at its state-of-the-art Nether Heage factory, on the grounds of the former LB Plastics site. The Sheerline name has close ties with both companies, as Roger explains: “LB Plastics, which is now part of the Garner Holdings group, originally registered the Sheerline name in 1971. Sheerline is the ideal brand for a new state of the art aluminium product range and I’m delighted this name is a nod to the two companies’ linked heritage.”
Fabricators and installers can find out more about Sheerline from Garnalex and see #HistoryInTheMaking by signing up to Garnalex Ambassador workshops which start this December. The company says the Garnalex window is fabricated quite differently from standard aluminium windows, so fabricators and installers will need to use special tools and bespoke software. Garnalex is running these workshops so they can learn how, and visit the state-of-the-art factory.
