Bristol based aluminium glazing specialist Nova Aluminium Systems celebrates 15 years of business. The company operates out of a 40,000 sq. production facility in St. Jude’s and delivers to customers across England and Wales using its own fleet of distinctively liveried vehicles.
Nova prides itself on being strictly a trade supplier, serving large and small installers with contracts ranging from £2000 - £200,000.
Nova manufactures aluminium windows, doors, curtain walling and shopfronts in all RAL colours, with the bi-folding door being one of their biggest sellers. They elected to use greenteQ Clearspan bi-fold hardware on this enduringly popular product.
Production Manager Jason Ford says “Aluminium is the go-to material for bi-folds due to the colour options, strength and slim sight-lines. The greenteQ bi-fold solution includes everything we need from the running gear, to handles, profile cylinders and locks, right down to magnetic catches. We can either order from VBH per kit, or in bulk alongside all the other window and residential door hardware that we source from them.”
greenteQ Clearspan is now the hardware system of choice for many bi-fold door manufacturers. One of the reasons that so many use the system is that it is covered by VBH’s Q-secure hardware guarantee, giving end users a free 10 year security guarantee.
Jason concludes, “We’re picking up new business all the time from PVCu fabricators who don’t want to miss out on the aluminium boom, and also from fellow aluminium guys who are over capacity. We can always find room in the production schedules but we need a quick turnaround on our hardware orders to enable us to be so flexible. Phil Thomas and the team at VBH Swansea can always be relied upon to get our ironmongery to us when we need it.”
