  • I worked as a design/draughtsman for ASL Portashowers in Nantwich in 1972 – 1974. I used RTZ extrusions for all our products and also some other innovative designs. I made a complete mobile discotheque, record cases and speaker cabinets using these extrusions! I still have all my original drawings of those designs. So versatile. I even managed to get my RTZ rep to produce special lengths of extrusion for my disco light units!

    Ed: Thanks for your comment Steve. You never know when a piece of aluminium extrusion might come in useful! John B
