ALUKs Case Study on us!


ALUKs Case Study on us!

Discover how Riverside Bifolds, in partnership with AluK, transformed a Southampton home with sleek and contemporary aluminium frames, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.

One of the big attractions of Riverside Bifolds for homeowners buying new windows and doors is that they can buy high quality AluK frames direct from the manufacturer. They can see the full range of AluK windows and doors on display at Riverside’s extensive showroom in Southampton and then pop next door and see the products being made in the company’s own factory.

Company Director Aaron Moroney said retail customers really value the fact that they can touch and feel the quality of the frames for themselves and also see the precision and attention to detail involved in the manufacturer, with fabrication teams having undergone training at the AluK Academy.

The owners of this four bedroom house on the outskirts of Southampton certainly appreciated the benefits of buying direct. Over the past few years, they have replaced all the original, traditionally styled white PVC-U frames in their home with contemporary aluminium frames from Riverside Bifolds and completely transformed the look of the property.

All the PVC casement windows have been replaced with windows in AluK’s tested, tried and trusted 58BW window system and a perennially popular 4-panel AluK BSF70 bifold has been installed at the rear to replace an original window and French doors, bringing in lots more natural light. At the front of the house, there is a new porch with a high performance aluminium front door in an AluK 58BD frame and a glazed side door also in AluK 58BD – all finished in distinctive black (RAL90055m).

The owners knew that they wanted aluminium frames for their makeover to help achieve the ‘more glass, less frame’ aesthetic and chose AluK because of the slim sightlines, coupled with the help and support available from Riverside Bifolds in partnership with AluK. They are delighted with the outcome: “We started with the bifold and loved the contemporary look and the extra light it allowed into the house so much that we decided to upgrade to aluminium throughout. The finished result is everything we were hoping for – the house looks more modern, and the slimline black frames add a touch of elegance and sophistication. We love the warmth and the improved acoustics, and really appreciate the fact that our investment will last for decades, with almost no maintenance required.”
