Technology

APL invests in the latest technology across all branches of its operations, from modern extrusion presses to Euro-5 compliant ‘green’ trucks delivering profiles to our manufacturer network.

World-leading technology from Aluro, Belgium is being used to insert the thermal break in APL’s ThermalHEART windows and doors. These products, as with all residential and most commercial ranges, are first tested in the company’s IANZ-accredited test booth which is capable of generating test pressures of 5kPa as well as simulating water leakage conditions. An in-house structural engineer is able to provide further technical support to building designers.

Other modern on-site facilities include New Zealand’s most technically advanced anodising plant, recently installed powder coating lines, two programmable CNC machines in the ALPAC manufacturing operation and recently opened buildings.
