HBS Aluminium Systems aim to be great at offering branded aluminium systems that architects and fabricators trust. They are renowned for being market leaders, introducing a new system to the market every year.

Their latest offering is a seamless door frame and skirting system, called Enigma – so named for its hidden hinges and clip-on skirting, which offer a seamless finish and minimalistic look. Enigma is ideal for the discerning homeowner and is expected to complement the other systems HBS successfully offers to the high-end market.

The Explorer system is an inside-glazed system (which has a security benefit) and offers both open-in and -out doors and windows, Tilt-and-Turn windows, and can accommodate larger than normal sash sizes. Both single- and double-glazed glass up to 32.5mm can be accommodated.

Another recent success story is the launch of our Lift-and-Slide Door. Designed for large, heavy doors (up to 3m high and 2m wide), it has outstanding weather performance and a long service life. Up to five locking points also offers excellent security.

Tenacity has changed the way shopfronts are perceived. 30% slimmer than typical shopfront systems, it offers a clean, façade-like appearance. Its simple construction offers high product performance, as well as maximising light and vision.

All of HBS’s systems are tested in-house, in their SANAS-accredited test rig. Testing air and water penetration, as well as negative and positive deflection, this was the first SANAS-accredited test rig in South Africa. It remains the biggest in South Africa, being able to test double-volume systems, as well as simulate a floor slab. Testing their in-house systems, literally to destruction, before launching to market, gives the architect, fabricator and end-user complete peace of mind.

National Sales Manager, Michelle Cochrane, says, “HBS Aluminium Systems continuously aims higher – in addition to launching new systems regularly, we also continually improve our current product offering to keep us abreast of the changing market needs. HBS has a system for any requirement, and we believe this is one of our secrets to continued success. Look out for the next exciting system, which is currently in the final stages of development…”
