The different markets served by aluminium systems companies
Depending on the product, the aluminium systems companies operate in the commercial market, residential market, trade route, or a combination of all.
Predominantly a systems company is there to ensure supply of their products, support their network of customers and continue with ongoing product development in response to changing market trends or even in response to changing standards or Building Regulations.
Most of the systems companies listed also work directly with testing organisations ensuring the conformity of their products.
Systems companies providing commercial windows and doors also operate heavily in the specification market. Apart from providing their products to a fabricator or dealer network, many systems companies also work directly with architects and construction firms helping them meet building specifications. The end result are the glazing element specifying the system as the one to be used.
Commercial windows and doors
The commercial market is defined as not just buildings requiring doors and windows suitable for commercial use, but also developments of houses and flats carried out by developers. Moreover, some systems are rarely found in retail showrooms indicating that they’re mostly commercial or specification systems supplied primarily via the manufacturer route
Residential windows and doors
There are also brands in our aluminium systems companies directly predominantly or only serving the domestic market. These are largely products seen in window showrooms as well as other more residential products such as lantern roofs or conservatory systems. Of course, it’s perfectly possible for these to be used in commercial developments too.
Products manufactured and supplied by the systems company
There are also systems made in Europe or the UK, provided directly by the systems company. Good examples included individual brands of bifolding or sliding doors, flyscreens systems, aluminium front entrance doors, conservatory roofs or glazed extensions. Whilst these may not be systems companies in the broad sense, they’ve still designed, tested and brought their products to market.
Related aluminium systems
Systems companies also fall into other categories of products that aren’t window and door systems but provide aluminium components necessary to their manufacture. Examples include extruders of general profiles, poles, tubes, cills, aluminium angles and other such products.
