Shop Shape And Bristol Fashion

Fentrade's shopfront

A commercial shopfront for a colourful refurbishment project for a specialist tool hire company based in Bristol has been manufactured by Fentrade.

The hire company, Kellaway Hire Services, was particular on the choice of colour so it was produced in RAL2004 Pure Orange in a matt finish to complement the company’s corporate branding.   Furthermore, the commercial shopfront and entrance door were specified to meet the needs of the retailer and the option of an integrated corner post to form the right-hand return made the frames easier for the installers (Crystal Clear of Bristol) to fit.

The new shopfront and entrance door were manufactured from Kestrel Aluminium Systems’ profiles. The system is perfect for applications in high traffic buildings and offers a modern design with minimal clean lines and is easy to install too.   


 “Replacing the shopfront in such a striking orange finish transformed the premises. This project was a great opportunity to once again demonstrate our ability to manufacture commercial shopfronts. We were delighted with the results.”

– Chris Reeks 

Director, Fentrade



Fentrade manufactures a comprehensive range of single and double commercial entrance doors and full shopfront systems in a choice of Kestrel or AluK profiles.  To personalise any project, the company offers a wide variety of hardware options including pad handles, pull bars and curve ‘D’ handles in a choice of contrasting colours in either painted, satin anodised or chrome finishes.   Secure locking options include hook locks, latch locks and electric strike latches to suit a wide range of commercial applications.
