TCR Systems chooses Aluk bi-folds

Conservatory roof specialist, TCR Systems, is now fabricating and supplying AluK’s BSF70 HI and F82 Plus bi-folds, following feedback from its trade customers.

Caroline Thompson, TCR’s marketing manager, explained: “Installers told us they liked the quality of the Aluk products, the strength of the brand in the retail market and the ease of installation. They felt that Aluk had a distinctive offering, different from many of the other aluminium systems companies, and offered good value for money.

“We met with the Aluk team and were impressed with the technical, sales and marketing support available. We particularly liked the fact that there are two Part L compliant options in the range, which means we can offer doors at different price points to appeal to different sectors of our market.

“TCR Systems has been a one stop shop supplier for Ultraframe conservatory roofs, lanterns and rooflights for more than 13 years and the Aluk brand sits very comfortably alongside that, with a similar reputation for proven quality and innovative design,” she continued.

“Our customers can now access quality roofs and bi-folds from TCR at the same time, all backed by the same friendly and efficient service.”

TCR Systems, based in Coleshill, Birmingham, plans to use the move into bi-folds to expand what is already a very successful business. Caroline added: “We see bi-folds as the natural add-on to our roofs for customers who are installing conservatories, orangeries and extensions.

“We plan to increase our volumes and make sure our customers right across the South and Midlands don’t want to go anywhere else.”

The Aluk BSF70 HI bifold can be used for up to seven-panel doors with sizes up to 2,400mm high, with a pop-out handle which ensures the panels all stack neatly square. The F82 Plus bi-fold offers U-Values of 1.2 with double glazing and 0.9 with triple glazing and can be used for premium installations with panels up to 3,000mm high.
