Aqualux wins prestigious MOD contract.
Aqualux has secured a contract with the Ministry of Defence to install its Elite Xtra Pivot Doors in the Royal Navy’s oldest shore training facility based on Whale Island, Portsmouth.
The UK’s leading manufacturer of bath screens and shower enclosures has been appointment as part of a HMS Excellent’s refurbishment programme which was recommissioned in 1994 to train naval officers for life at sea.
After a highly competitive tender, Aqualux’s contract partner Dewco specified 138 Elite Xtra 760mm Pivot doors finished in polished silver. Aqualux was able to offer added-value supply and fit service to ensure that the enclosures were installed without disruption to other building works being carried out at the same time.
Tony Head, Project Manager for Dewco said: "We were looking for something very specific and Aqualux were the only company who could manufacturer a guttered pivot door and also offer a supply and fit service. This is exactly what we were looking for and we’ll no doubt be working with them again in the future."
The Elite Xtra range is designed to offer installers increased flexibility when fitting. Both the frameless and framed Pivot doors are also available with a side panel which allows them to be installed in a recess or used with a side panel to create a corner enclosure. As standard, the Xtra range offers 54mm adjustment and is available in white or polished silver frame finish and the side panels come complete with integral towel rail and stylish handle on the Pivot door.
National specification manager, Colin Henderson commented: “Dewco set us a real challenge and we were able to rise to it and win the contract which will hopefully lead to more work with the MOD.”
