What is a Composite Window?
Composite windows are wooden windows which have an outer skin of aluminium to remove the need for regular maintenance – and are the most popular product we sell as a result. Many of the composite products are available in an identical style in timber-only. Unsurprisingly, having a maintenance free wood-alu equivalent which doesn’t need regular external painting is very popular with our customers. This product group is available in all opening styles for both doors and windows: outward, inward and tilt and turn.
We offer extensive options so that customers have a choice of style and appearance, rather than us limiting our range to just one manufacturer like many distributors.
We have been selling Rationel Windows in the UK for many years and are one of the longest standing distributors of the products in the UK.
STM composite windows are very different to our other ranges in that the aluminium exterior can be rendered or be pointed directly to the building. Again, we are one of the longest standing distributors of this product which offers various timber stain finishes and size choices not available in any other composite window range.
Our German products are as you would expect: a luxury quality item with outstanding engineering and offering unprecedented choices of colours and internal timbers. The performance and appearance is the best the global window market can offer. This does, however, come with a higher price tag. The following ranges are available as tilt and turn only and have a thicker frame section better suited to houses with large amounts of glazing, so the frame and glass sit in better proportion.
All of our German wood-alu windows have uniquely welded, polished and powder coated joints on the external aluminium corners. This provides outstanding durability and longevity as there are no bare aluminium to bare aluminium joints on the corners.
The C series features a flush design on the exterior, creating a contemporary composite window. Both the interior and exterior design focuses on sharp 90-degree angles to achieve a clean and modern appearance.
To go a step towards the ultra-modern, an integral frame creates a unique appearance externally. With no physical groove separating the sash and frame, the IN series looks especially sleek.
Take a look at our new eco-friendly glass wood composite window: combining a unique design with an all-glass exterior. This is the first window on the market with an almost 100% maintenance-free exterior. Only cleaning is necessary. Consequently, the window will look new and stylish throughout the building’s lifetime.
