A wide range of materials

The variety of materials available will offer some important distinctions in terms of frame thickness, flexibility of unit sizes, variety of profiles available, cost and durability.

The strength of aluminium ensures that it can offer the option for supporting large pane sizes and a narrower frame profile than most other materials. It is light in weight and requires little to no maintenance. The design of modern system profiles ensures a good level of thermal efficiency.  Although the range of coatings is more limited than for some other materials, the resulting sharp looks can provide a very stylish finish to any property. A particularly popular material for glazed door systems.

A natural product that can be produced with a range of profiles and finishes that offer the greatest flexibility in overall look. Will typically create a warm yet robust and characterful appearance.

Steel windows offer the ultimate in decadent fenestration. The key to steel is its strength, enabling the thinnest possible frames for a window or door. The development of thermally broken steel profiles ensures that there is typically no sacrifice on thermal performance. It will come as no surprise to learn that steel windows are the most expensive, but the delicate beauty and durable performance should ensure that you will be well pleased with your purchase.
