In-house manufacturing that ensures fast turnaround and high quality
At Alex Trade Frames we manufacture all our own frames and the majority of our doors. Keeping all this in-house guarantees complete quality control and ensures you get your order correct and on time, every time!
Our manufacturing process
You start the manufacturing process by sending us an enquiry for windows, doors or a conservatory. All of our quotations are prepared using the very latest design software that is fully interlaced with our computer controlled machinery in the factory. Our quotations are fully detailed and include our interpretation of the information you have provided in your enquiry.
Once you sign to say you are happy with the details you see, we convert your enquiry into an order. Your order will be made exactly as you have agreed, because the details in our quotation to you are then interpreted by our CNC machinery and the manufacturing process begins. For a small cost we can get your frames to you within 24 hours!
Skilled craftsmen and modern technology guarantee great results
A careful blend of automation and skilled staff enables us to manufacture tailor made windows, doors and conservatories efficiently using Kömmerling O70 Gold traditional sculptured profile sections.
To enable older properties to retain their traditional look, whilst taking advantage of the most efficient heat retaining materials available, we now include a fully welded sash-horn style frame in our range. It makes for the perfect combination of style and function, allowing you to appeal to the higher end residential market also.
All sections are prepared for fabrication on our CNC ‘Saw Centre’ that mitres to size whilst milling and routing for drainage and sash furniture. The sections are then assembled using the very latest 4 and 6 head welding machines.
Glazing beads are measured using the latest electronic equipment. These measurements are then digitally transferred to one of the mitre saws to produce glazing beads that fit absolutely perfectly every time.
Our frames, transoms, mullions and sashes are reinforced in all critical locations. Reinforcement is made from corrosion resistant galvanised steel.
