K2-Breezes were chosen to replace the existing Jalousie doors in this Deerfield Beach condominium.  The K2 Breeze meets high design pressure, hurricane requirements while offering ventilation through the single hung window mounted in the upper panel.  Here, the owner elected to use opaque glass panels top and bottom to let in diffused light.

For Immediate Release

 

Aldora Aluminum and Glass Products of Charleston (formerly Coastal Glass Distributors) is proud to announce its launch of Aldora’s aluminum storefronts and entrances.  Aldora of Charleston is now offering 2 non-impact flush-glazed storefront systems with complimentary narrow and medium stile non-impact doors as well as 3 impact storefront systems and a variety of high design pressure impact doors.

 

Aldora has a fully equipped production line that manufacturers custom size entrance doors.  It will also be able to fabricate and pre-glaze its full line of impact storefront products.  Pre-glazing has proven to be an excellent option as the numbers of field glaziers has declined.  It also allows glazing business owners to focus their time on driving sales versus fabricating product in their plant.

 

The storefront selections include framing systems for ¼” glazing, 1” IG, 9/16” and 1 5/16” laminated-insulated, 1 5/16” Level II bullet resistant glass.  Two impact systems can also be thermally broken for energy requirements or LEED projects.  Aldora’s doors have a solid reputation in South Florida for their size and design pressures.  The K2 Summit can be configured to 8’0” x 10’0” pairs, with panics and 1 5/16” laminated-insulated glass.  All impact products carry a Miami Dade NOA and Florida Building Code approvals.

 

“The Aldora product line is perfect for Aldora of Charleston’s customer base.  The diverse product line allows us to serve our impact customers on the coast as well as our non-impact customers inland.  We will also gain the benefit of the energy efficient products since that segment is certainly growing”, says Trent Hartley, Branch Manager.

For Immediate Release

 

Aldora HoldCo, the parent company of Aldora Aluminum and Glass Products, Inc. and Coastal Glass Distributors, is pleased to announce the name change of Coastal Glass Distributors to Aldora Aluminum and Glass Products of Charleston.  Veterans of the glass industry know the rich heritage the name Aldora had as a quality provider of aluminum doors and storefronts in the 60’s and 70’s.

 

Management, office staff and plant personnel will continue to provide their customers the same high quality products and services they have been experiencing with Coastal Glass Distributors.  The only thing changing is the name.

 

The name change is in conjunction with the launch of Aldora’s line of aluminum storefronts and entrances at the Charleston location.

 

“Although Coastal Glass Distributors has a tremendous name and reputation in the industry, adopting the Aldora name allows us to freely market the Aldora brand, products and services easily between the two Aldora branches (Miramar and Charleston).  With the addition of Aldora’s aluminum products at the Charleston location, we believe it was an opportune time to transition to the Aldora name”, states Trent Hartley, Branch Manager of Aldora Aluminum and Glass Products of Charleston.
