Where beautiful design meets stringent compliance: Alspec’s Commitment to Australian Standards

For 50 years, Alspec has been a driving force in Australia’s architectural landscape. As a wholly Australian-owned company, their commitment to innovation and exceptional service has positioned them as a leading supplier of aluminium window and door systems for commercial, residential, and industrial applications.

Where beautiful design meets stringent compliance: Alspec’s Commitment to Australian Standards

From meticulously tested systems exceeding industry standards to groundbreaking inventions like the first-ever integrated screening system for aluminium multi-fold doors, Alspec consistently delivers solutions that are both aesthetically pleasing and technologically advanced.

Evidence of their dedication to creating the highest-quality products lies in their commitment to meet and exceed the strictest Australian building standards, ensuring exceptional performance, safety, and durability.

  • Exceeding National Requirements: All Alspec products comply with AS2047, the mandatory standard for windows and doors in Australia. This guarantees their water resistance, air infiltration control, strength, and ease of operation.
  • Facade Performance: Alspec understands how windows integrate with the entire building envelope. Their curtain walls contribute to facades meeting the rigorous testing requirements of AS4284, ensuring a weatherproof and energy-efficient building exterior.
  • Bushfire Protection: In bushfire-prone areas, Alspec’s aluminium windows and doors are ideal. As a non-combustible material, aluminium offers inherent fire resistance, and Alspec products comply with BAL 40 standards for high bushfire risk zones.
  • Child Safety: Alspec prioritises safety. Their windows are designed to comply with AS5203, a standard for fall prevention. This ensures windows incorporate child safety devices or restricted openings to prevent falls.
  • Security Assurance: Alspec security screens for windows and doors meet the requirements of AS5039. This standard guarantees their strength against forced entry attempts, providing peace of mind for homeowners.

By adhering to these comprehensive standards, Alspec aluminium window and door solutions deliver exceptional performance, safety, and durability, making them a trustworthy choice for any building project.

But Alspec’s commitment to quality goes much further than most – all the way to ensuring they can administer rigorous testing at their very own NATA-accredited testing facility in Brisbane. Here, windows endure simulated harsh weather conditions to ensure they meet national standards for water resistance, air infiltration, and wind loads. This commitment to quality assurance guarantees Alspec products perform flawlessly for years to come. Their Invisi-Gard product is backed by a comprehensive warranty, ensuring that this high-performance screen can be specified with considerable peace of mind.

And to cap it all off, quality doesn’t come at the cost of sustainability – in fact, Alspec upholds sustainability as a key facet of their business. This is typified by the upcoming development of the Alspec Industrial Business Park in Western Sydney, which will not only serve as Alspec’s new national headquarters, but stand as a testament to the company’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of environmentally-friendly design and construction. The company has also announced a partnership with the Australian Institute of Architects, which will see Alspec support training and development programs for Australia’s built environment professionals. The collaboration will highlight sustainability and innovation in construction materials.

For half a century, Alspec’s commitment to innovation and exceeding industry standards has solidified their position as a leading supplier of aluminium window and door systems. Their meticulous testing and adherence to sustainability principles ensure exceptional performance, aesthetics, and environmental responsibility for any building project.
