Fisher Aluminium and us
We are a Fisher Aluminium franchise. There isn’t any coincidence in that we have chosen Fisher as our supplier of Aluminium, because of the high quality joinery and the designs also have numerous solutions for the window and door market. If those reasons weren’t sufficient it is also that Fisher’s founder Mr Lou Fisher created the iconic Ranchslider that we all know and love. Without him the deck would never have been the same.
Fisher has been a part of the Traue Corporation for many years with Lester Traue starting manufacture in 1960 as the first to produce aluminium joinery in the region and one of the first in the country. Throughout the years there have been many advancements made and those have been matched stride for stride in the Gisborne Fisher Aluminium factory. Visit us and take a look.

Were you born in a tent?
Good neither were we, however you might want to keep the warmth in and save money on your heating bill with Dualglaze windows. It is now compulsory for all new buildings to meet insulation values, the most cost effective way being double glazing, a smart way to save a few dollars and keep the heat in.
Fisher Aluminium Gisborne is the official supplier of Dualglaze for the Gisborne region using quality glass produced by MetroGlassTech. Dualglaze allows you to double glaze your existing joinery to meet new insulation values. With existing aluminium windows and doors we replace the sashes, fixed glass and modify the door panels to take double glazing panels – all within the existing units, or alternatively we can fit replacement aluminium windows to your timber windows. Less painting and less draughts.
Double glazing will help reduce condensation build up in your house and help reduce fading in carpet, curtains and furniture, which is especially important with the Gizzy sun. Double glazing doesn’t just help with keeping the warmth in but also helps keep the warmth out during those hot summer months.
What is it?
Double glazing is two pieces of glass with air or gas between them. Air is a great insulator which stops the temperature being transferred through the windows, it sounds simple and it is, but it can save you 51% of your heating compared to single glazed windows in an insulated house. More information is available here.
How can we help?
The beauty of Dualglaze is that it can be fitted to your existing windows in most cases. So from quote to installation it will only take 4-6 weeks with most homes being able to be retrofitted within a couple of days.
Double glazing isn’t just for old homes but also for new.
