All commercial premises need a shop front. From small single storey retail outlets to large supermarkets, car show rooms, and department stores, a shop front should promote your business and help to entice potential customers inside. A high quality shop front is not just about the aesthetics however. It should be secure, durable, weather resistant, and thermally efficient.

To achieve the best possible shop front for your business, you need to use the right material. Here are five reasons why aluminium is now the preferred material for modern shop fronts.

1. Durability

Aluminium shop fronts provide excellent weather protection. Aluminium won’t rot, corrode, or deteriorate, and will withstand even the most extreme conditions.

2. Versatility

Aluminium is an extremely workable material. It can be fabricated into almost any shape to create bespoke shop front systems. To complete the customisation, aluminium shop fronts can be powder coat finished in any of over 200 RAL colours.

3. Compatibility

At ADC, our aluminium shop front systems are totally compatible with our range of entrance doors. This gives you the possibility to choose the best products for your particular situation.

4. Environmental protection

Aluminium is an environmentally friendly material. It is 99.7% recyclable and can be re-formed and re-used without losing any of its quality. Its naturally occurring ore, Bauxhite, is found in abundance close to the Earth’s surface and can be easily extracted with limited environmental impact.

5. Strength

Aluminium is an inherently strong material. Aluminium shop front systems can support large sections of glazing with slim line frames. This enables you to create a showcase for your products and display them within an attractive frame.

At ADC, we manufacture and install high quality shop front systems across the North West of England and North Wales. Whatever your requirements, we will endeavour to create the perfect shop front system for you. For more information about any of our products and services contact us today.
