Members of the Aluroll team recently visited Somfy in France to follow the journey of a Somfy product.
Representatives explored Somfy’s state-of-the-art research and development, manufacturing, testing, packaging and dispatch facilities, located in and around Cluses, between Geneva and Chamonix in the French Alps.
The market-leading colour range for Secureroll roller garage doors is bigger than ever before. There are 21 standard options, including three green shades; Fir Green (RAL 6009), Chartwell Green (NCS S3010 G10Y) and Moss Green (RAL 6005).
All three have been available on the Classic door (77mm profile) for some time, but exceptions meant that Fir Green was the only green available for the Compact door (55mm profile). We are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer all three options on Compact doors too.
Aluroll introduced a new Teleco panel last year, and the exclusive design is already becoming a favourite in the marketplace. Further design improvements and new features help it maintain its status as one of the best control panels around.
Our roller garage doors now have a signature Secureroll badge! The first installations featuring the logo on the bottom slat have already taken place, and feedback has been positive from installers and end users alike.
We’ve always been at the forefront of automation technology, offering both Teleco and Somfy control panels on our Secureroll roller garage doors. All remote control systems are plug and play and fully commissioned and tested in-house prior to despatch to save time on site.
Aluroll has recently been awarded the latest quality accreditation by BRE Global. The ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System requires an assessment of seven quality management principles, including Customer Focus.
More of our roller garage doors have matching box and guides than ever before, our recent colour analysis has shown.
Over 70% of standard colour door orders take advantage of our offer to match the box and guides to the curtain at no extra cost. This number has tripled from 22% since we made this option part of our standard offering two years ago.
We have rearranged our factories and extended its storage to help serve a growing customer base. The new shelter is part of the existing manufacturing facility in Oswestry, Shropshire. The lean-to building can stock up to 46 stillages, housing additional slats to assist with the increase in orders.
We are becoming the go-to manufacturer for large bespoke roller shutters. Readers of the Winter issue of the Door Industry Journal will have seen the 12m shutter we helped to design with a customer, and recently we have received another unique request.
Last year Aluroll won a contract for the manufacture of security shutters for a multinational technology company. Following discussions with the architects handling the project, Aluroll was chosen to design, manufacture and manage the installation of four large bespoke roller shutters.
Aluroll would like to thank all customers for their support throughout 2017. Throughout the year we have been working hard to improve our products and service, and as a result we’ve become better than ever before...
Our Classic roller garage door is now Secured by Design as standard.
Secured by Design approval is a nationally recognised UK Police flagship initiative dedicated to ‘designing out crime’, and widely regarded by homeowners, architects and specifiers as an indication of security and quality.
The SecureRoll roller garage door colour range has recently expanded. New colours include Painted Irish Oak (which is available on all doors) and metallic finish Graphite (available on Classic and Elite). Due to popular demand Velvet Brown (RAL 8014) is now available on all doors. As always, our in-house powder coating allows us to offer special RAL colours.
Aluroll’s new and improved box reinforcement sections are proving increasingly popular with installers. Used on roller garage doors and security shutters where extra support is required (reveal fits or external fits in a windy location), we recommend them as an alternative to Aluroll’s traditional angle stiffeners.
Aluroll pre-code all Somfy wireless safety edges before they are dispatched to customers. This makes things easier for installers and saves time on site.
Although Somfy state in their instructions that the bottom magnet is an optional feature, Aluroll supply them as standard. Please ensure you always fit the bottom magnet regardless of whether the floor is level or uneven. The magnet switches off the bottom edge transmitter, saving battery life and preventing accidental operation. All components are supplied with fixings and installation instructions.
Rather than posting Christmas cards this year we have decided to send this email and make a £300 donation to Hope House instead. This Oswestry-based charity provides care and support to children and their families facing life-shortening conditions...
Our roller garage doors have undergone a makeover. Instead of carrying the Aluroll logo and blue theme like our security shutters, they now have their own SecureRoll branding, complete with a new logo and a modern yellow and grey colour scheme.
We recently asked roller garage door installers why they choose Aluroll over other suppliers in the marketplace. The main reason given was ‘Convenience of Install’, at 42%. When asked what made our roller garage doors so much better, the overwhelming reason given was related to our handsets and safety edge being pre-programmed.
Aluroll would like to thank everyone who participated in our 2016 customer survey. We received an impressive number of responses, including interesting suggestions and ideas which we will use to improve the service and products we offer
Aluroll security shutters have been used on an exciting project recently. Wolverhampton market has been rejuvenated, bringing all of the stalls from indoors to outdoors, using purpose-built cabins made from brightly coloured shipping containers. The finished project was a unique way of adding security to a situation which often has very low security levels.
Last month we announced that we’re matching the box and guides to our standard colour Classic roller garage doors. We’ve had a great response to this change, so we’ve extended this feature to our Compact doors too. This way you'll be able to offer customers an even better product than before, for no extra cost.
Feedback from our customers suggests Chartwell Green and Duck Egg Blue are becoming increasingly popular in the home improvement market. As a result, we've added them to our standard roller garage door colour range.
Aluroll is once again going the extra mile for customers. We can now match the box and guide colours on our Classic roller garage doors, while maintaining our current prices and industry-leading manufacturing times. Your customers get a better product and our trade installers get the same great service, at no extra cost.
