Unik Funkis

Unik Funkis are one of the very few factories who can create a thermally-broken aluminium-clad timber composite window. This type of product has a warm timber internal frame, a low-maintenance aluminium external frame, and a polyamide barrier in-between those two materials.

Creating what we’ve taken to call a “true composite” window, unlike a clip-on aluminium solution, this construction allows the product to be installed as though it were a pure timber system.

Like most Danish, made in Denmark windows, Unik Funkis products are approved by the DVV scheme.

Full Details

Whilst we were initially attracted to Unik Funkis based on their product on paper, we made the decision to work with them based on visiting their factory. Most factory tours are a fairly set route and conversation, but we were so impressed by various members of staff being able to answer all our questions, and show us some truly unique techniques and ideas that set them apart from most others.

There are three steps on the performance ladder within Unik’s range. Their true-composite product can be made with double glazing, triple glazing and an enhanced triple glazed profile. For us in the UK, the double glazed variant is still the most important. And we’re lucky that Unik have chosen to continue providing this for the UK market because there are not many situations where double glazing is allowed to be used in Denmark (the UK are fairly behind in terms of building regulations).

Even the basic double glazed version of Unik’s windows are able to meet current UK building regulations for all domestic newbuild and renovation projects, so opting for their near-Passivhaus triple glazed option will be a huge upgrade for any UK home.

The highlight of uniqueness is arguably the tilt-and-slide door. This is a really interesting solution to a few inherent issues that come with a normal sliding doors – both lack of airtightness and lack of small ventilation position are solved.

Also, they boast the thinnest decorative glazing bar in our entire product range (including our official heritage product). 19mm bars are by far the smallest option available, and they’re used to create a New York apartment-style result, especially in black. With these bars being so thin, they are always made in aluminium externally to give longevity, even on a timber-only frame. When choosing these bars, the internal frame is also given a traditional profiling effect.

All in all, Unik Funkis are a factory who have primarily set themselves up for the Danish market – perfect for us because we get the best combination of factors. We receive a product that’s be designed with a very similar climate to ours, but without all of the unfortunate consequences that come from UK-based manufacturing.
