What benefits do aluminium cover shells have for windows and lift and slide doors?2018-12-19T14:42:44+00:00

Aluminium cover shells improve the level of weather protection and so significantly lengthen the life of building components. The (minor) increase in costs is really worth it. Cover shells additionally allow doors and windows to be colour-coordinated with the facade, so letting you put your own touch to the design. Give us a call and we’ll happily discuss requirements!
