Our aluminium windows can provide many solutions for residential and light commercial applications. The windows feature slim, thermally-broken profiles and are available in several formats, including fixed-pane, top- and side-hung casement windows. One of the main benefits of aluminium windows is their hard profile surface that have been built to withstand denting and weathering.
Aluminium is a very strong and lightweight material. It naturally generates a protective oxide coating making it virtually resistant to corrosion. Because of that, aluminium is one of the most durable frame materials available and the lifespan of these windows is therefore measured in decades rather than years.
Providing a modern, like-for-like replacement for traditional materials, aluminium is the ideal solution for projects where planning or design demands dictate the installation. Aluminium is a very strong material and because of that even the slimmest frame is strong enough to support a large pane of glass.
Monkey Tail Handle
Tear Drop Handle
Classic, traditional or contemporary? The choice is yours. Combine your choice of frame with your choice of matching hardware to create a solution that perfectly restores the balance and harmony of your home. The standard handle is available in 8 different finishes and the ironmongery monkey tail and tear drop ranges are available in chrome, gold, graphite and antique black.
The standard glass unit used in our aluminium windows is 28mm in depth and is comprised of 4mm clear glass to the outside, a warm edge spacer bar and 4mm clear Low E glass on the inside.
The inclusion of argon gas in to the cavity of a double-glazed unit reduces the heat conductance between the panes. This happens because the gas is 6 times denser that air.
Pilkington Optiphon is an acoustic laminated glass that offers excellent noise reduction without compromising on light transmittance or impact performance. Two 3mm pieces of glass are put together with a noise reducing interlayer typically 0.8mm thick. This glass offers the dual benefit of noise reduction and security.
Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of a sealed glass unit and separate the panes of glass. Traditionally, spacer bars were made of aluminium, however the warm edge spacer bar used in our glass units is an extruded PVC material specifically designed to reduce transference of heat between the panes of glass keeping more heat inside the property.
Pilkington’s obscure glass range provides obscuration and decoration. All patterns are classified according to their level of obscurity in relation to each other, with 1 being least obscure and 5 being most obscure.
Our aluminium windows come with the option to upgrade the security to our PAS 24:2016 security package. PAS 24 is a set standard with specifications as to which our aluminium windows have been tested against.
The PAS 24 upgrade includes:
The upgrade is generally mandatory on new-build projects.
Our modern aluminium windows are thermally-broken using polyamide, an excellent insulator which helps to insulate windows against heat loss. This technology significantly reduces thermal transmittance and enhances the overall u-value of the windows and is designed to meet the requirements of Document L 2010.
The timeless elegance of our aluminium products is also accompanied by an outstanding thermal performance only found on modern window systems. Our aluminium window ranges can deliver energy ratings of up to ‘A’.
With all Quickslide aluminium casement windows, there is a 10-year manufacturing guarantee as standard. We strive to ensure that our quality is assured but having a 10-year guarantee offers peace of mind for years to come. Download our guarantee PDF or speak to one of product experts to find out more.
Our aluminium windows have been security tested to PAS 24 enabling you to upgrade your window specification to meet the regulations for new-build projects. Utilising a multi-point locking mechanism, internal key locking handles and internal beads our aluminium windows offer the highest level of security as standard.
