GGF forms new Aluminium Group

  • 7 Sep 2021

The Glass and Glazing Federation announces the formation of the new GGF Aluminium Group for companies in the aluminium sector.

The idea for the new group was founded in the GGF’s Technical Team. They identified a gap in the current GGF technical group infrastructure and in the industry generally.

David Borland, GGF Senior Technical Officer (above), comments: “Part of the responsibilities of the Technical Department is to continually review the service we provide to Members and most importantly recognise gaps in that service.

“It is during these reviews and discussions it became clear that the one part of the Industry which needed additional GGF Technical support was the Aluminium sector.”

The Aluminium Group will attract interest not only from companies in GGF Membership but also many companies who are non-members.

In 2021, the GGF has seen new Members join the Federation with a specific interest in the aluminium sector. In the last few years, the industry has witnessed a revival of aluminium in the home improvement sector with products such as bi-folding doors and secondary glazing, which is becoming a popular solution for heritage buildings and homeowners in conservation areas.

David Borland adds: “While there is substantial overlap with the GGF Window & Door Group, there are areas of fenestration that are unique to aluminium such as shopfronts, commercial entrance screens, curtain walling & commercial windows.

“We hope with the support of a considerable number of existing GGF Members with aluminium interests, the new Aluminium Group can prove to be a valuable technical asset for the GGF, our Members and the industry.”

Companies who have an interest in joining this Group can contact David Borland by email at [email protected].
