JVM Aluminum, Inc., offers a range of aluminum products and related materials that can satisfy a wide range of applications and projects. Our materials are primarily suitable for commercial applications (storefronts, architectural, etc.) but in many cases we have fabricated and/or provided our products for in-house, in-office and other usage (with excellent results).   Our materials and fabricated end-products can be found in projects as diverse as :

  • Storefronts
  • Residential building entrances
  • Interior - eg. office environments, residential constructions
  • Movie sets
  • Commercials sets
  • Banks
  • Schools
  • Restaurants
  • Art projects

The company has produced a number of extrusions in original designs, or with improvements to the U.S. market, some of which are :
  • Built-in weatherstrip at the bottom rail of the door.
  • Double fascia for original designs in the door, sidelites, etc.
  • Slim intermediate rails (3/4") for unique designs into the door.  (In addition to other rail widths.)
  • Reinforcements in the color single / double fin and other tubes for optimal performance.

For more, see the Extrusions section.

As far aluminum finishing : since 2004 we are the only ones in the U.S. (as far as we are aware), offering our flagship line of wood-grain in Electrostatic Powder Coating (EPC).  In the summer of 2003 we introduced aluminum material in the highly original silver metallic finish (EPC).  Finally, in the mid-90s, we were one of the few aluminum distributors that regularly stocked and provided aluminum storefront material in colors.

For more, see the Finish section.

Even though the company can not currently stock all products and finishes, we can special-order them for you, with a short lead-time.  We supply a wide range of top-notch quality aluminum products that are traditionally unavailable in the U.S., but are impressive as far finish, design and overall performance.

JVM Aluminum, Inc. offers both the fin and the flush glaze tube systems and commercial doors in a variety of finishes.  Storefront doors are offered in Narrow, Medium and Custom-made stiles and are typically fabricated at our site.  As mentioned elsewhere, many of the designs / features in our profiles are original and add value to the overall customer proposition.

The company, has pioneered the introduction of aluminum materials in different colors, always using Electrostatic Powder Coating, which is of the highest standards.  Even though aluminum in color is slightly more expensive than the clear/bronze anodized, the appearance, consistency, warmth and variety of the former are clearly superior. 

As far as the wood-grain finish we have to stress, again, that this is an Electrostatic Powder Coating finish (in fact, via a much more complex process)!  This results in a clearly superior product in appearance, durability, etc. as compared to the other method for wood-grain finish, called the "film method".  The "film method" imprint, apart from its inferior aesthetic qualities is rapidly affected by weather conditions and UV radiation, hence making it unsuitable for a large number of applications.

The powder coated wood-grain finish, made available by JVM Aluminum is absolutely appropriate for any kind of exterior application, as well as interior ones, of course.

All of our color finished aluminum is QUALICOAT certified.  See also Certifications section, for more on the quality of our products.

We use the RAL color designations (an International Classification for Architectural Colors) to describe our available finishes, which are :
