Aluminium For All

Sam Hill of Reynaers Aluminium UK looks at some of the ways the company is meeting customer needs by developing products and systems suitable for both the commercial and trade & retail sectors.

Reynaers has over 50 years’ experience developing innovative and sustainable aluminium windows, doors and façades, many of which can be seen in residential and commercial buildings all over the world.

As demand for aluminium continues to grow across both the commercial and retail environments, we continue to invest in our systems and services so fabricators working in either sector have a varied choice of high-performance products and systems to meet their customers’ requirements.

Our focus as a manufacturer has always been on creating energy-efficient, responsibly made products that successfully blend design and technology. Using these principles, we’re able to create solutions that add value to our customers.

In the case of fabricators and installers, we do this by offering a varied range of products and systems that not only meet the necessary regulations – however stringent these are – but deliver on performance and aesthetics, are easy to fabricate, cost effective to produce and can be installed safely and efficiently.


Central HQ

Our headquarters in Birmingham provides a central base from which we service our nationwide network of fabricators and installers. It’s also where we’ve built a large showroom that’s open to all our fabricator and trade partners giving them the opportunity to view our most popular products. We supplement this through tailored technical support for architects, fabricators and installers to ensure the correct specification and application of systems and products.


Building Regulations compliant

Reynaers has also become registered as a British Fenestration Ratings Council (BFRC) systems house. This move allows our customers and supply chain to take advantage of the ratings on our products and systems and gives a simple and cost-effective route to achieving and demonstrating compliance to building regulations.

Reynaers’ BFRC registered fabricator customers can cascade the WER and DER labels to their installer customers as long as they fit insulated glass units and other components specified to the simulation which achieves that specific rating.

There are also additional benefits for FENSA registered installers, who can get access to BFRC ratings as a result of Reynaers being an approved BFRC systems provider.


Across markets

We provide our customers with a comprehensive, contemporary and competitive choice when it comes to aluminium products. As such a number of the company’s most innovative door and window systems are available to fabricators selling into both the commercial specification and retail or domestic markets.


Opening on two sides

The ConceptPatio 130 (CP 130) lift and slide patio door system, for example, is specified and installed in both commercial and residential buildings. Arguably Reynaers’ most popular system, we’ve cornered the market with this product, giving architects and homeowners the opportunity to take advantage of the current trend for opening up traditional window spaces.

The CP 130 range makes it possible to completely open up two sides of a room enhancing light and space and giving the feeling of bringing the outside into a room.



Another of our products that cuts across both commercial and trade and retail sector is the HiFinity sliding door, which in contrast to the CP 130, is inline instead of lift and slide. It has thermally insulated sections and also offers excellent security as well as impressive weather resistance. It comes in a range of colours and comes in two, three, four or six-panel door options to offer architects and homeowners a great deal of versatility.



Reynaers’ HiFinity sliding system is an extremely popular choice for both architects and homeowners today, thanks to its slimline frame and ability to be fitted to bespoke heights – up to 4 metres – and widths. The ultra-slim design is highly engineered and seamlessly extends the interior to the outside with multiple threshold options. HiFinity can also carry the weight of a large sliding glass pane up to 330kg for manual slide, and 775kg for the motorised option and fixed panels up to 1200kg.



The system also comes with a choice of options so can be tailored specifically for different requirements. These include a choice of mechanical lock, manual operation, electric lock manual operation and motorised operating options.

HiFinity is an exclusive system and is only produced by selected fabricators.


Getting to installers

With such an extensive range of aluminium window, door and façade systems and products we can ensure fabricators can meet the needs of their own customers, whether in the commercial or retail/trade setting.
