Lumi has made significant investment in its latest range of ‘frameless’ window and doors, with the addition of new machinery to its Ballymena factory.
Setting out to expand manufacturing capacity for Lumi Aluminium products, a £61K Emmegi CNC machine is to be delivered in early December 2021, followed by a further £5K expenditure on an Elumatec 223 end miller, set for installation later the same month.
Lumi MD, Asa McGillian, said: “Our latest investment in automation has been made to satisfy the steady growth in demand for Lumi Aluminium products since we launched the range at the start of this year.
“Our aluminium system is perfect for the current market because it bridges the gap between high-end architectural products which look the part – and affordability, with an achievable mid-level price point that is typically less than comparable aluminium products. It really does offer the best of both worlds and delivers everything you might look for in a quality, contemporary, 21st Century window.”
Joining the two well-established and popular Lumi variations made from composite materials, Lumi Aluminium caters for the current trend for aluminium windows and doors increasingly favoured by homeowners, architects and specifiers alike.
Combined with Lumi’s trademark ‘frameless’ edge-to-edge glazing design, the latest aluminium range effortlessly achieves the slick modern aesthetic that is currently so sought after across both commercial and domestic sectors.
Asa added: “Besides its appeal to professional specifiers, Lumi Aluminium is also ideal for our installer partners to work with in the home improvement market because it’s simple to handle and install, with no beading or gaskets to cut and fit on site. And the distinctive look it creates is very attractive to homeowners looking for the kerb-appeal that only aluminium windows can deliver.”
