Leading aluminium fabricator CDW Systems helped long standing customer Total Aluminium Systems with a school project that required more than 200 windows.

The Taunton-based installer and fabricator needed 207 windows for a refurbishment project at Wadham School in Crewkerne, Somerset.

With additional students and staff joining the school at the beginning of the academic year last September, the school decided on the programme to replace its windows, with Total Aluminium carrying out the installation while making sure they caused minimum disruption to students learning.

Total Aluminium Systems has worked with CDW Systems for more than five years and buy windows, doors, bifolds, and commercial and residential doors – and for this project they chose Technal Dualframe windows.

Daniel Sparks, Total Aluminium Systems’ Director said: “We needed a durable, high use window for the Wadham refurbishment project and Dualframe was the perfect window solution.

“The team at CDW were very helpful with advice and support on what window profile to use to suit all our needs, with Dualframe being easy to fabricate and install. We had six months to complete the project and we had around 10 deliveries split into phases over three blocks, which CDW were a great help with.”

The family run company, which operates mainly in the South West, has more than 25 years’ experience and predominantly works on commercial projects, carrying out installations for both new build and refurbishment projects.

And, according to Daniel, CDW Systems has proved the perfect manufacturer and supplier: “The relationship is good for us due to the reliability of CDW and their ability to supply larger quantities with decent lead times. We are a more compact fabricator and installer, so it works well.”

Jeremy Phillips, CDW Systems’ Group Chairman, said: “Technal Dualframe windows were a reliable, cost effective, robust solution and Total Aluminium have done a fantastic job on Wadham School.

“We have always been committed to being far more than a trade supplier; like all our customers, Total Aluminium are valued partners and we were delighted to supply them with both top quality products and the support they needed.”

Established in 1992, the Gloucester-based CDW Systems is one of the UK’s longest running aluminium specialists in the trade supply of aluminium window, door, and curtain wall products and celebrated its 30th anniversary last year.
