The Ideal 70 system from aluplast has been specified as part of a refurbishment project at Edinburgh’s world renowned zoo.

Manufactured by Windowplus, with installation carried out by Dimension, the windows, doors and escape doors, were fitted as part of a refurbishment of Penguins Café.

Robert Tierney, General Manager, WindowPlus, said: “The order came in from the customer. It was a bit of a coup – you would normally expect a high profile job like this to be picked up by a big retailer because of the exposure that it carries.

“We supplied the Ideal 70, with a U-Value of 1.4W/m2k with Planitherm toughened externally laminated, argon filled units with a 18mm silver spacer. The feedback from job has been very positive.”

The Glasgow-based, trade fabricator became an aluplast manufacturer in early 2015. It employs 20 people making more than 200 frames per week, supplied to installers throughout Scotland.

“The Ideal 70 is a great system. The area around us is saturated with other systems and selling it gives us a point of differentiation”, said Robert.

He concluded: “It just sells itself. We have just refurbished our factory showroom with aluplast as a single system. It’s used by our customers with homeowners and it just sells as soon as they see it.”
