Composite windows by Jeffrey James
Composite windows originated in the colder climates of Scandinavia and Canada. They needed windows to combat the extreme cold and therefore created the composite windows that not only offered low ‘U’ Values but also withstood the harsh winters externally yet provided a more traditional timber appearance inside. Composite windows offer a double or triple glazed unit.
U values can get well below the 0.8w/m2 required to achieve passive house standards”.
Composite windows are made up from a combination of different materials, utilizing the best of these materials. There has been a massive increase in popularity of composite windows in the UK. Composite windows combine strength and colour options of Aluminium with warmth and beauty of Timber, (also referred to as Alu Clad Windows, Timber Clad Windows, Aluminium Clad Windows or Aluminium and Timber Windows), they combine a timber interior with an aluminium exterior window.
The combination of a naturally warm wood as pine or oak with a hard wearing aluminium, composite
windows are externally powder coated, painted to any desired colour, making your choice of colour and design unique to your home especially for those looking for a stylish and almost maintenance free window and achieving that great thermal performance so needed in today’s environmental friendly world.
“The lower the U value the more energy you save and the warmer your home”.
They can open outwards like most windows in the UK or they can also offer the more continental opening inwards window such as the tilt’n’turn window.
Frames can be sprayed any RAL colour (European Colour Matching Reference) of your choice, the paint finish can be a matt or gloss finish and the wood stained to show the natural colour and grain of the wood or matched to interior design.
High grade wood is used ensuring that the windows are the highest quality and will last for many years to come. The expected lifespan of Alu clad composite windows are 40 to 60 years. The guarantee tends to be the industry standard at 10 years.
