Rapid lead times

Sternfenster is offering “rapid lead times” on its aluminium product range, including its bifold, sliding patio and casement offering, despite continuing high demand at the start of 2021.

The fabricator is offering its Smart Visofold aluminium bifold, in standard RAL Grey, black and white and dual grey on White – plus its Smart Alitherm 300 casement window in RAL white and grey – on a five-day turnaround.

For orders on single colours, the Visofold bifold is available in 10 days, with other products, including the Smart Visoglide inline slider, delivered from just 15 days.

Sternfenster’s capability to offer aluminium products on fast lead times stems from a £3.6 million investment in aluminium production in 2017. This included the introduction of a dedicated 30,000ft2 factory, 10,000ft2 of office space and an in-house powder coating line.

Since then, it has further bolstered its aluminium production capacity with the addition of a Schirmer ALU BAZ Composite Orbit-C machining and cutting centre, increasing both precision of manufacture and quality of product, and a four-head Ever Theta frame crimping machine from FOM.

“Our continued investment in automation throughout our aluminium facility has not just resulted in higher levels of output, it has allowed us to deliver a superior quality of finish, and a greater consistency of quality to the finished product,” Mike Parczuk, managing director of Sternfenster said.”
