The Heart of Success: Alu-Timber Construction

Alu-Timber A True Composite

Aluminium is a tried and tested facade material, providing a well known realm of design solutions. By taking this renowned
industry design, fabrication and installation expertise and merging it with the very latest timber innovation, Alu-Timber provides the market with windows, doors and framing that can be fabricated and installed as aluminium facade products. Using these tried and tested aluminium construction methods, Alu-Timber provides reassurance for clients, specifiers and building end users.

Creating longevity is the whole ethos of Alu-Timber, protecting the timber to the external with aluminium throughout the facade. To construct Alu-Timber corner joints, the timber is cut at 45° then sealed, so there is no exposed raw timber joint, creating reassurance for the specifier that rot will not set in.

to cater for any differential movement.
