Arguably, when a project requires the most modern aluminium-clad timber windows, with an architectural handle design and clean design language, the best product to choose is the Rationel AuraPlus.
The flush frame sections line through perfectly, despite some casements being fixed and some openable. A few of the vertical posts are free to swing out to provide fire egress. In addition, using hidden guided hinges further adds to this illusion.
Combining Anthracite Grey and Pure White colours with satin chrome handles consistently throughout helped to create a clean and uniform appearance. Nothing looks out-of-place, with the Rationel AuraPlus windows and Sunflex sliding doors working together perfectly.
Most window handles are designed with many products in mind. Frequently, you can observe the same handle being used everywhere, from UK-made uPVC to bespoke Scandinavian options. Rationel’s handles are designed to be used by their products and their products only. This offers peace of mind, as you know that the part of the window you will interact with the most has a highly focused design. And, as an added bonus, the product also comes with a comprehensive 10-year warranty.
The Sunflex SVG30 has the slimmest vertical joins between panels in the Sunflex range (as the name suggests, it is only 30mm thick). And choosing to split the sliding doors into three sections keeps the weight-per-panel low, making it easier to open and close a section in day-to-day use.
Of course, security is also a vital factor to consider. For this reason, we exclusively use both toughened and laminated glass on all doors, and combine this with products that we know have gone through extensive testing. Both Sunflex and Rationel are approved by Secure By Design – a step above PAS24 and Part Q.
The whole project is installed using Tremco Illbruck’s i3 installation system, which ensures class 4 airtightness of the window and the installation. Enlightened Windows are Rationel Trained Installers and are a FENSA registered company.
