Aluminium window frames for low maintenance
By using aluminium as external window framing, VELFAC windows offer exceptional durability with a sash available in a wide range of colours and finishes to complement and enhance the exterior, while inner pine can deliver the warm, natural finish welcomed by building users. Available in a range of paints, stains and varnishes, this hard wearing pine frame also offers real design potential when creating interior spaces.
VELFAC composite glazing delivers all the benefits of aluminium framed windows - and more - offering a contemporary, energy efficient, stylish alternative with the potential to deliver significant architectural impact.
Slim frames and uniform sightlines deliver design versatility
The VELFAC slim frame design delivers a seamless exterior finish as all window and door units – fixed, opening and motorised – are identical in appearance. The slim sash and frame also allows even the smallest window to maximise natural daylight, further enhancing already impressive energy performance.
VELFAC glazing can create impressive, uniform facades, ribbon windows and window blocks; the flat, seamless finish is created by an in-line frame design which places the opening frame element directly in front of the fixed frame to create a 'floating sash', a finish further emphasised by a recessed weather seal.
