Aluk Leading The Way With Its Response To Part L

AluK’s latest initiative designed to cut through all the confusing industry noise around the upcoming changes to Part L was a highly successful Customer Forum held at Aston Villa’s Villa Park stadium.
 
AluK has based its response to the tougher U-Values required within Part L on the quality of its engineering and on enhancing its products so that customers have absolute reassurance that they will be able comply on both windows and doors using double rather than triple glazing.
 
At the Forum, the company’s MD Michael Williams reaffirmed their commitment to offering not just the new and improved products, but also clear and simple guidance on the rules, and expert advice on everything from glass options to likely policing and penalties.
 
The 60+ customers who attended were shown samples of the new 58BW HI window system and given updates on availability, lead times, pricing and LogiKal software updates for the entire range, which will ensure they are ready for the June deadline.
 
David Evans, Head of Technical Services, demonstrated how the new profile references as well as the new foam and thermal breaks have been added into LogiKal and showed customers how they can generate the U-Value reports they need to show compliance from within the software.
 
Darren Burford, the Training Manager, also announced that there would be a new, free Building Regulations workshop available at the AluK Academy for customers to get fully up to speed, and new training video content that fabricators can pass exclusively to their installers.
 
Product Design, Product Management and Marketing teams were also all on hand to hear feedback and answer questions on topics such as compliance routes and existing stockholding; and the response from customers was really positive. 
 
Michael Williams said: “Our primary role as a systems house is to help our customers succeed, while at the same time acknowledging the responsibility we have as a global business to be proactive in our carbon reduction efforts. We were determined from the outset not to fudge compliance on Part L as some seem to be doing, but to lead the way on the journey towards Future Homes in 2025.
 
“Senior members of AluK sit on committees at the GGF, CAB and CWCT so we are right at the heart of the discussion on how the Building Regs are changing. We promised to keep our customers informed every step of the way and this was our fourth Customer Forum since March. We’ve also created lots of online content for customers to access via dedicated pages on our learning platform and our sales teams will be having lots of face-to-face discussions with customers in the coming weeks.”
