Record response

Milwood Group has hailed The FIT Show 2019 as the most successful exhibition in company history, with a record number of enquiries for its range of premium aluminium verandas, canopies and shelter solutions.

Operating across two stands, visitors focused their attention on Milwood’s new product lines, officially launched at The FIT Show. The first was Simplicity Xtra, Milwood’s new easy-fit roof system, while the second was Ali-deck, the a quick-fit, slip-resistant aluminium decking system.

Kevin Horne, managing director of the Milwood Group, said: “The combination of Simplicity Xtra and Ali-deck, our ground-breaking aluminium decking system, generated a record response with over 100 meetings booked during the first day alone.

“It’s no secret that the outdoor living market is absolutely thriving, and it was great to see such a diverse range of tradespeople respond to the opportunities offered by our product range. While Simplicity Xtra offers an easy-fit shelter that doesn’t compromise on quality or performance, Ali-deck gives trade partners the chance to offer something completely unique, which can increase the value of their installations.”

The second Milwood stand was dedicated to Ali-deck and featured full aluminium decking throughout and showcased examples of Supa Joist, a robust aluminium sub-frame that allows Ali-deck to span 300% further than both traditional hardwood and composite decking.

Mark Wood, Milwood’s founder and MD of Ali-deck, said: “Ali-deck not only works as a standalone product – suitable for both commercial and domestic uses – it’s the perfect pairing for our aluminium verandas, allowing installers to offer a complete, premium outdoor living package.”
