BM Aluminium created an Altec Systems database for Altec customers to use with LogiKal.

Altec’s Managing Director Carl Richards chose LogiKal because it is so widely used by Altec’s target customer base and is renowned for its functionality and ease of use.

“LogiKal has quite deservedly become the dominant software system across the aluminium sector so it is obviously essential that our new systems are fully compatible with it and all of our new datasets are available to fabricators already using LogiKal. We have worked closely with the technical and programming team at Business Micros Aluminium ahead of our launch so that fabricators can quickly and easily add our systems to their product ranges.”

Altec Systems, the newest name in the aluminium systems market, has chosen the LogiKal software solution from Business Micros Aluminium as its software launch partner.

Altec, which is based in brand new premises in Pyle, Bridgend, has just launched a new patented aluminium window system capable of achieving a U-Value of less than 1.4 and a WER A rating in a standard 60mm casement window fitted with a standard Argon filled double glazed unit.

The company expects this to make a significant impact in the market, giving aluminium fabricators the opportunity to target projects where PVC-U windows might previously have been preferred on the basis of thermal efficiency.

A key feature within LogiKal enables fabricators to calculate the U-Value of a window at the design stage so it will be possible for them to make side by side comparisons of the thermal efficiency of their existing windows with the Altec Systems alternative.

LogiKal also allows cost comparisons to be carried out so that all those projects where the Altec Systems is the most thermally or cost efficient solution will be instantly identified for users.

Carl Richards adds: “Via LogiKal, fabricators will be able to see for themselves the benefits and opportunities presented by our new system and we are very confident that it will have a real impact on our ability to win business from the outset.”

From its new base in South Wales, Altec Systems is supplying curtain walling, windows and door systems to fabricators across the UK.
