The Countdown is on for our Ground-Breaking Leeds Showroom
The launch of our newest showroom is creeping closer, and we're going to keep you updated the whole way. Have a read below of what you can expect…
With three magnificent €˜show houses' and a number of outstanding room sets, the country's largest-of-its-kind showroom (and a Europe-first!) is really coming along. Once complete, you can expect to see the full portfolio of Express products on display, with working models, technical build areas, consultation areas and more (including an elevated viewing deck!). You can see an animated walk-through and construction progress video here.
The products have all been finished and installed into settings you would expect to find in your home, with four large room sets, each designed to replicate the rear of a property. The room sets showcase our products in varied settings so you will get a glimpse of our products in a children's play room, an upmarket games room and within two premium kitchen extensions which have been chosen from our sister company Express in the Home.
The full-scale show houses have been designed to cater for all types of properties. We have a full-front elevation which is a traditional double-bay property, but will be modernised by our aluminium products. We also have a Grand Designs style contemporary house which we are very excited about – but we won't reveal too much at this stage! The main show house, which will include three fully-fitted kitchens, has four very different extensions:
– Our uniquely designed glass box extension
– Two orangery extension designs
– A distinctive, beautifully designed extension that is a replica of one of our most popular projects.
Every product that we manufacture is on display, as is all of the hardware and ancillary products available, including:
– Bi-fold and sliding doors
– Several different types of casement and tilt and turn windows
– Curtain walling, shaped frames
– Various roofing systems (including a huge roof display which spans over 200sq metres!), glass rooms, conservatories, roof lanterns and skylights
– New front door designs.
The new showroom will be open to homeowners, housebuilders and trade customers alike, whether you're looking to see the products first-hand on a supply-and-fit or trade supply-only basis.
Quite uniquely, the showroom is set within the premises where all of our products are made, meaning visitors will also be able to enjoy a tour of our huge manufacturing facility, including the latest CNC machinery (for those that are interested in the technical and engineering side of things!).
And for those of you looking for interior inspiration as well as glazing solutions, you'll be able to explore a number of stunning rooms fitted with exceptional kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms from our sister company Express in the Home. In addition, we've partnered with some fantastic home brands for the furnishing of the show houses, so stay tuned to find out who else's products you can expect to see in the showroom.
Our new Leeds showroom will be the most extensive showroom in the country regarding product offering, and arguably the best architectural aluminium showroom in Europe! There really is nothing like it across the continent, and we're proud to have kept the heart of our business in our home county of West Yorkshire.
