Bear Metals, the Leeds and Bradford-based balcony and balustrade manufacturer and installer, has launched a new modular aluminium balustrade system, a first for the UK market.
According to the company, the wedge fit product is both lighter and stronger than traditional steel balustrade systems, giving it greater longevity. It is set to launch for residential and commercial applications.
The new system has been designed and created by Bear Metals founder and Managing Director Simon Mitchell.
“After seeing similar systems in luxury hotels around the world, I was inspired to create a British designed and engineered product for the UK market, which is now seeking out more contemporary products of this kind,” he said.
“It’s great for both domestic and commercial customers as it means we have more products in our range, more variety and products that are unique to us, as well as being made in Yorkshire.”
“We can streamline manufacture in-house with this new system, as well as using CAD design and 3D printing systems, meaning we can cut it, paint it, box it and ship from our Birstall and Bradford sites. We are excited to see how the product is received.
“We have also taken on a few additional manufacturing staff to support our investment plans for the product offer.”
