"SBD is widely recognised as being the gold standard for home security"

Blackburn-based door and window supplier and installer, AluFold Direct, has renewed its membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative.

Established in 2014, AluFold Direct was founded to offer ‘a better way to deliver aluminium bi-folding doors to the trade’, with levels of quality and certainty that had not been seen in the fenestration market before.

Since then, by constantly improving its manufacturing processes, investing heavily in its operations and fabrication, and training its team to manufacture aluminium glazing products with skill and precision, AluFold Direct has become a leader in the market, transforming how the trade buys aluminium windows and doors.

AluFold Direct

The key aim for AluFold was to make buying aluminium glazing as straightforward and simple as buying PVCu. Aluminium offered more opportunities for installers – it wasn’t a saturated market and it offered higher profit margins. Historically, buying aluminium windows and doors had often been an unsatisfactory experience for installers, with high levels of remakes and long lead times. AluFold transformed this by consistently delivering quality aluminium bi-fold doors in one week unglazed, two weeks glazed.

AluFold listened to customers and expanded its product offering to deliver all products on the same quick lead times, helping installation companies to take advantage of the new demands for aluminium glazing, driven by high-end home improvement programmes such as Grand Designs.

Russell Yates, Managing Director of AluFold Direct, said: “Secured by Design is widely recognised in the retail market as being the gold standard for home security. As a result, it’s something that our trade customers really value and something which we’re happy to continue to support.”

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, commented: “It has been a pleasure to renew contracts with Alufold Direct who have been members with Secured by Design since 2016. They offer a wide range of excellent aluminium doors & windows for the residential market. I am looking forward to working alongside them for many more years to come.”
