The aluminium industry continues to grow in strength as Aluminium window and door systems are chosen ahead of uPVC and Timber solutions.

Aluminium has long been the most popular choice in the commercial market, however, the industry is fast growing in the domestic sector. As a specialist trade extruder, at ExtrudaSeal, we off an extensive array of extruded gaskets and seals to suit most Aluminium window and door systems found on the market today.

In addition to producing completely bespoke seals for customers, we are also able to provide a wide range of off-the-shelf solutions, including gaskets for all market leading Aluminium profile systems, including Aluk, Senior Aluminium, Ikon Aluminium, MetalTech and Smarts Aluminium.

One particular area of the Aluminium industry that is seeing growth is the manufacture and installation of Aluminium Bi-folding doors. In addition to manufacturing compatible seals for use with many of the most commonly found Aluminium systems companies, we also design and produce completely bespoke bi-folding door gaskets to customer requirements.

 

Innovation

At our premises in Birmingham, we have the capacity to manufacture all extruded components in house. As a result, we can offer savings as much as 20% when buying directly from us as opposed to buying gaskets as part of a package deal from a systems company. Keeping everything in house also means that we can provide an extremely diverse colour choice (more than 1,000 RAL colours) and provide innovative and bespoke solutions.

In order to prevent the common problem of threshold gasket systems for bi-folding doors becoming misaligned over the time, we designed a unique new alternative system – the ‘fit-and-forget’ aluminium bi-fold threshold gasket.

By providing a semi-rigid box foot to the gasket, the new gasket achieves much enhanced sealing capabilities and fits much better, preventing misalignment as a result of friction.

At ExtrudaSeal, we will always work to be innovative where we can, helping to improve efficiency for our customers and helping them to save money in the long term by preventing the need for call-outs to installers when gaskets fail.

 

Gasket with tape production

Our inhouse production capabilities allow us to provide gaskets and seals with an adhesive backing. As gaskets are extruded, once they are cooled down, we can then link the extruded product to be backed with an adhesive tape along one external side, before the finished product is packaged or rolled, ready to be shipped to a customer.

Here you can see the entire process of manufacturing adhesive-backed gasket tape:
