Alunite manufactures and fits standard and purpose made aluminium windows, shower doors, sliding doors, patio/braai enclosures, sun rooms and shop fronts.

The Brand

The Alunite franchise opportunity was developed by the same team who manages the successful Lumber City Group.

The Lumber City franchise was established in Cape Town in 1979 and currently has 50 independent stores in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Nigeria. Lumber City opened their first glass and aluminium business in Montague Gardens, Cape Town in 1989. The attractive and affordable Alunite franchise opportunity was developed by adapting and improving this highly successful business model.

The management team’s collective experience in both the glass and aluminium trade and the franchise industry, enables them to support the success of their franchisees. The management team aims to effect maximum growth of the Alunite group, ultimately enabling franchisees to benefit from the associated pricing advantage over stand alone competitors effectively optimising their margins.


Alunite manufactures and fits standard and purpose made aluminium windows, shower and sliding doors, patio enclosures, sun rooms and shop fronts. Old damaged wood and steel installations are removed in order to replace them with an aluminium product. Alunite also performs servicing of aluminium sliding doors and windows and on request will cut and fit safety glass, standard clear and obscure glass and mirrors in accordance with customer requirements.

We respect and promote individuality in how to run and manage your business, including your choice of product range and selling prices.

You will always be your own boss.


Alunite franchisees receive hands-on training, by participating in the activities of an existing Alunite outlet. In addition, franchisees are supplied with a comprehensive training manual and an operations manual covering all aspects to run an Alunite franchise successfully.

Alunite franchisees must be motivated and innovative with business knowledge, passion and a drive to succeed.
