Sri Lanka’s aluminium industry market leaders, Alumex PLC, a subsidiary of Hayleys
Group, announced the introduction of a new range of internationally accredited
aluminium proprietary product ranges for the domestic and commercial markets under
the Alumex Building Systems (ABS) brand.
The new ABS range is designed to withstand tough weather conditions and is
recommended specially for high-rises – accommodating a glazing thickness up to
24mm – and comprised of unitized curtain wall systems – both structural glazing and
beaded type; windows, doors and sliding systems.
Notably, the testing of the entire ABS range is carried out according to the American
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards in an international independent
laboratory in Dubai which is United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) accredited.
“The introduction of Alumex Building Systems represents a major milestone for the Sri
Lankan construction sector as a whole. We are proud to be able to meet the growing
domestic demand for aluminium systems, thereby removing the need to rely on
imported materials. Alumex is the only Sri Lankan manufacturer capable of producing
internationally tested and UKAS accredited aluminium proprietary systems.
The tests conducted for water penetration, air infiltration, wind pressure and safety,
have all shown extremely positive results with ABS performing well above standard. The
advantage for customers cannot be understated given that Alumex offers total solutions
from aluminium accessories, hardware and gaskets, to additional benefits such as our
single system warranty for products used in ABS – ensuring optimal after sales care, as
part of its overall product offering,” Alumex PLC Managing Director, Pramuk Dediwela
