Direct Roofing Systems, one of the first fabricators to partner with Garnalex and choose its Sheerline aluminium window and door systems, says, the Classic system is a “game-changer” when it comes to offering homeowners a more modern, slimline alternative to traditional aluminium offerings.

Direct Roofing was established in 2017 and supplies aluminium bi-folds, patios, French doors, and roof lanterns across the UK. According to Managing Director Jimmy Cardno, they were looking for an aluminium supplier with a good reputation coupled with exceptional product performance, and Sheerline, with its innovative product design, ease of fabrication and excellent service was the ideal solution.

“Demand from our customers has been growing for a full suite of aluminium products.” Jimmy explains, “We recognised from the many features Sheerline has to offer how this would benefit our existing product portfolio. The Classic system with beadless and flush finishes presents something different to that in the current market. You can make any size you want and lots of parts are interchangeable. It is a nice-looking innovative product giving an attractive slimline, seamless look, and is easy to fabricate using the corner construction, making fabrication quicker. So far, service and delivery times have also been very good.”

Garnalex CEO, Roger Hartshorn, adds, “The desire to offer something different voiced by Direct Roofing Systems, will sound familiar to many in the industry, which is why we designed Sheerline with clever innovations to make fabricators and installers’ lives easier. As Jimmy highlighted, Sheerline’s stand-out product innovation is matched with outstanding service – all Classic profiles and components are available on industry-leading lead-times in twelve stocked colours, including three anodised finishes. Dual colour combinations from this stocked range are also available on the same lead-times, with bespoke colours available quickly too.”

Continuing to reinvent the way in which the market perceives traditional aluminium systems, Sheerline’s two distinct systems – Classic, an ultra-secure beadless aluminium window system that is ideal for replacing traditional steel-framed windows or for modern, minimalist builds, and Prestige, a versatile and thermally efficient system, offering U-values as low as 0.9 W/(m2K) for triple glazing, and 1.3 W/(m2K) for double glazing – help match homeowners needs’ perfectly. Sheerline also offers the Prestige Bifold and S1 Roof Lantern. Available in a range of styles and finishes, both incorporate Sheerline’s patented corner jointing method which delivers a fast and easy way to fabricate products whist giving perfectly aligned corners, time after time.
