Lanka Aluminium Industries PLC, the manufacturer of high quality aluminium extrusions in Sri Lanka was awarded the prestigious SLS certification recently.
Lanka Aluminium is the very first aluminium extrusion manufacturer in the country to have received the SLS certification for some of its products. The company is also ISO 9001:2008 certified.
The company manufactures aluminium extrusions both in anodized and powder coated finishes which is t he current standard for architectural applications. Lanka Aluminium maintains consistent quality in t he anodizing and electro colouring plant utilizing German technology and Henkel’s proprietary colour systems. The all-important sealing process is tested for each and every batch to ensure consistent quality. The anodic coating thicknesses are as per the British standards. The company is the first extruder to manufacture powder coated finishes and has established a reputation for excellent colour fastness and adhesion. This too is due to their rigorous attention to detail.
“As a policy, we always improve our products on an ongoing basis and try to be innovative to provide the customers with a high quality product, at a reasonable price” said Dinal Peiris-Managing Director, Lanka Aluminium.
Dr. Senaweera-Director General/CEO of SLSI said, “Lanka Aluminum Industries PLC is the first company in Sri Lanka which obtained the “SLS” mark for selected profiles of Aluminum Extrusions products. Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI) is the only organization that can grant a permit for the use of the well recognized “SLS” mark, which has been a symbol of trust for quality in Sri Lanka since 1980”.
“The SLS mark on a product assures that it is consistently manufactured in accordance of the applicable Sri Lanka Standard Specification which leads to satisfy customer expectations and thereby the product can be purchased with confidence from the very competitive markets. To ensure that the manufacturer maintains the same quality level right throughout the production, SLSI will continually monitor the quality of such products through stringent product focused surveillance visits and also using internationally recognized certification principles” he added.
Lanka Aluminium Industries PLC is a public listed company established in 1986 and its aluminium extrusions are used in some of the finest high-rise buildings in the country. The company has expanded its capacity recently and plans to come up with new and innovative products to cater for the growing construction sector.
Lanka Aluminium also has in-house system design capabilities and will soon be offering tested and proven proprietary window & curtain wall systems to be used in high-rise buildings. These will be substantially cheaper and better suited to Sri Lanka’s weather and environment. The company is a part of the global multinational giant – Comcraft which has several extrusion plants internationally which enables Lanka Aluminium to obtain world class engineering resources and technical assistance whenever necessary.
