Aluminium increase

Kenrick has reported a rise in demand for its Nemesis multi-point window locking system for aluminium profiles.

The company has credited its growing sales to the rapidly increasing popularity of aluminium in the domestic market.

Steve Williams, sales director at Kenrick, said: “When it comes to windows and doors, aluminium continues to follow an incredible growth pattern and it’s predicted to reach an all-time high of 220,000 frames a year by 2020. This upward trend has driven demand for Nemesis and sales have grown tenfold since the launch.

“The market is moving towards higher value products, but the aluminium sector has been hampered by the lack of choice in multi-point window locking systems for aluminium profiles. Nemesis has attracted this wave of new customers because it brings greater choice, but it also delivers on quality, performance and reliability which are vital at the higher end of the market.”

Nemesis is a high security bi-directional twin cam espagnolette window locking system that has been developed to suit aluminium profiles which come with or without a eurogroove. Nemesis is made from austenitic stainless steel, which has been tested to BS EN 1670: 2007 Grade 4 (severe) rating for salt spray corrosion resistance.

Keeps are currently available for all the major aluminium systems, including Smarts Alitherm 300, Smarts Alitherm 600, Smarts Alitherm 800, Smarts Alitherm Heritage, Smarts EcoFutural, Sapa Crown, Sapa Dualframe, and Aluk.
