AluK systems specified for the Withybush Retail Park project

AluK (GB) doors and curtain walling systems have been supplied for the refurbishment of an existing retail unit for Debenhams at the Withybush Retail Park in Haverfordwest, Wales. Specified by Holder Mathias, in collaboration with Kier Group, AluK's aluminium building systems were installed for the new shop front and display windows.
"The Debenhams store was the last phase of a complete refurbishment of the 7 units at the site which has transformed what was a tired scheme into a successful, contemporary retail destination," explains Mike Swain, Technical Director at Holder Mathias. “The works for the Debenhams store started in January 2013, with the shell unit being handed over to the tenant in June 2013. The store has now opened following the tenant’s fit out."
 Combining design flexibility with functionality, the SL52 Curtain Walling System installed enables specifiers to create impressive continual expanses of glass that not only enhance the aesthetics of a building but also provide the functionality and performance required to meet and exceed current standards.

Also specified was the GT55 NI Door System, which is perfect for heavy traffic areas where no insulation is required. This system provides the ultimate in security, certified to LPS 1175:SR2 and by 'Secured by Design'; it is one of the most secure swing door systems available on the market.
"AluK met all our requirements in terms of design, performance and service. The design concept was to produce a clean, uncluttered, double height glazed frontage. AluK was able to provide a curtain walling solution with flush silicone jointed glass to meet the project design criteria,” adds Mike Swain.
