Also online at: Automated Gates & Barriers the team at Alucorb and looked at the product and everything being offered to the ‘Portalier’, I knew this was something I wanted to be part of. I had seen the demand grow in my area for an alternative to wooden gates and since signing up only six months ago, this has already become an incredibly important sector of my business”. “With the level of support we receive from Alucorb, ours is a selling and installation role because approval drawings, production and site delivery is all taken care of for us. I would urge any company wanting to expand, or just add an alternative option to what they already do, to make contact with Alucorb sooner rather than later”. The majority of potential ‘Portaliers’ – and their customers - are looking for a serious alternative to wooden gates, due to the continuous aftercare issues and cost and hassle of maintaining them. By contrast, aluminium gates require little or no maintenance, as they are naturally rust-free, and boast an incredible level of weather resistance. It is also an eco-friendly option as each gate is 100% recyclable, so can quickly and easily be turned into something else when no longer needed. And, as Darren Weatherill explains, this increasing demand is another factor fuelling interest in the ‘Portalier’ concept: “There is a massive amount of interest out there from consumers and I can see aluminium taking over in popularity from wooden gates in the near future, so it’s understandable that so many installers want to be involved”, he says. “Our ‘Portaliers’ also like the fact that they have their own exclusive geographical area. That’s why we’re urging any interested parties to get in touch with us as soon as possible - before they lose ‘Portalier’ rights to a competitor!” Don’t miss out – call 0161 4065910 today to discover more about becoming a ‘Portalier’.
