You Might Have Choices But There’s Still No Escaping Part L

AluK’s product managers Peter Willard and Lisa Stephens and sales manager Scott Yates talked to a hundred installers who attended the CWG Choices Open Day – and Part L was high on the list of topics.

They chatted about the AluK products fabricated under the Choices Aluminium brand, including the popular BSF70 and F82 bifolds, the BSC94 sliding patio and the 58BW and 58BD window and door systems but the hot topic on the day was the upcoming changes to Part L.

CWG Choices has been partnered with AluK since 2011 and AluK systems now account for more than 75% of the aluminium doors and windows it supplies.


 “As we saw once again at our 30th anniversary Open Day, our installers like the design of the AluK products. That makes them a good match with the Kommerling products we supply in PVC-U and means that customers fitting both aluminium and PVC-U products can buy two complementary brands from one source.”

The partnership between CWG Choices and AluK looks set to strengthen even further as the fabricator has just opened a new aluminium ‘Centre of Excellence’ at its Corby manufacturing facility. A dedicated 10,000sq.ft of manufacturing space and an adjacent warehouse has doubled capacity and provided a platform for an anticipated 25% growth in aluminium in 2022.

Powell adds: “We’re very confident about those growth figures.  We have the capacity necessary to supply installers who want to grow the aluminium sides of their own businesses. And we’re already offering lead times of two to three weeks on stock colours.

“Above all, we’re making it easy to do business with us. Installers can use our Choices Online quoting system to generate their own professional looking quotes and place orders, they can call our customer service team if they prefer, or they can use our printed product guide and price list.”
