Mila launches new, aluminium-focussed Advance range

The Mila team is introducing a new high-performance, precision-engineered hardware range this month, called Advance. Every product in the Advance range has been designed and manufactured exclusively for the aluminium market, Mila’s representative has reported.

The first product in the Advance range is a magnetic hold open system for bi-folds which has patented, self-aligning technology. More Advance products are set to follow. All Advance products are to include clever design features as well as guarantees on quality, value and stock availability.

“This is the first time that we’ve focused on the aluminium market,” said Richard Gyde, Mila’s managing director. “We’re doing something very different to the ‘me too’ products which have predominated over recent years.

“Every product in the Advance range has been designed to solve a particular problem that aluminium fabricators encounter with their existing mechanical hardware solutions. And each will represent a step change from what has gone before.

“Crucially, the range challenges the preconception that aluminium hardware has to be premium priced to deliver premium levels of innovation and quality. We’re expecting high levels of demand.”

Mila’s Advance range has been in development for almost two years. During that time the Mila team has worked with aluminium systems companies and fabricators to deliver solutions to hardware challenges, particularly around bi-fold and sliding doors.

Richard added: “Our design team, led by product design director Paul Pearson, has applied the same clever design thinking which has helped us build our reputation in the PVC-U market to aluminium. There is lots of ‘only from Mila’ technology in these Advance products – much of which is already being patented.

“Our technical director, Strafford Cooke, has also been working directly with customers to ensure that they are as easy to fabricate as our PVC-U products, and that they meet all the most testing quality criteria. The feedback we’ve already had is that we’re bringing something truly ‘advanced’ to aluminium fabrication, and that our ‘dedicated to aluminium’ approach is really refreshing.”
