Mila has this week launched Advance, a hardware range designed specifically for the aluminium market.
The launch begins with a magnetic hold open system for bi-folds, complete with patented self-aligning technology, with the promise of more to follow soon.
Managing director Richard Gyde explained: “This is the first time that we’ve focused on the aluminium market and we’re doing something very different to the ‘me too’ products which have predominated over recent years.
“Every product in the Advance range has been designed to solve a particular problem that aluminium fabricators encounter with their existing mechanical hardware solutions, and each will represent a step change from what has gone before.”
He added: “Our design team, led by Product Design Director Paul Pearson, have applied the same clever design thinking which has helped us build our reputation in the PVC-U market to aluminium, and there is lots of ‘only from Mila’ technology in these Advance products – much of which is already being patented. Our Technical Director Strafford Cooke has also been working directly with customers to ensure that they are as easy to fabricate as our PVC-U products and that they meet all the most testing quality criteria.”
