Demand for heritage style windows and doors continues to grow, as residential new build and refurbishments seek to achieve high quality period aesthetics. In response to this demand Reynaers Aluminium UK Limited, has expanded the choice of profiles for its SlimLine 68 (SL 68) range which features as part of its heritage collection.
The SL 68 is already an established and popular choice for architects, fabricators and homeowners alike because of its minimalist design. The window replicates the look of traditional steel windows typical of those used in historic buildings. The two new profiles, called Classic and Ferro, also have slim sightlines so allow the maximum level of light inside the building, as well as offering expansive views of the outside.
The new ‘Heritage’ profiles feature a bevelled and a stepped sash option and choice of outer frames to create a look typical of 20th century designs. Its 68mm frame depth makes it ideal for replacements as an existing window can be removed and replaced with the new SL 68 profiles without affecting existing plaster lines. All profiles in the range can accommodate either double or triple glazing without compromising the super slim profile and have a Window Energy Rating (WER) of up to A on double glazing.
Alongside the two new vent profiles, the addition of a flush transom allows for the fabrication of cruciform windows achieving a fully flush outer frame look, whilst the introduction of a further slim outer frame profile can be used to achieve an even slimmer outer frame sight line. Reverse rebate adapters are also included, enabling fabricators to bead the window on the same side as the vent.
Reynaers Product Manager Ian Osborne:
“Heritage aesthetics are going from strength to strength for commercial and residential buildings. Keeping a close eye on current trends, we identified an opportunity to develop additional profiles for the SL 68 range that combined strong performance characteristics, slim sightlines and most importantly, ease of fabrication.”
“We’re proud to offer some of the industry’s best performing windows. With the introduction of the new SL 68 profiles and the features they offer, there is now the possibility to benefit from these with an even greater range of design flexibility.”
The SL 68 is part of Reynaers’ Heritage Collection, which offers design versatility and choice across different period styles. The collection also includes profiles from the SlimLine 38 range (SL 38), which is a highly insulated system that combines elegance and comfort with a unique slender steel design. The SL 38 is therefore a perfect choice for modern architecture and renovation of steel-framed windows, that respect the original design of a building but provide the latest thermal efficiency performance.
Another significant product in Reynaers’ heritage range is the MasterLine 8, an innovative window and door system that combines maximum daylight and safety without compromise – allowing for breath-taking views with a classic looking aesthetic combined with the latest performance capabilities. The system’s patented technology ensures excellent air permeability and optimal thermal insulation.
The ConceptSystem 77, one of Reynaers’ comprehensive systems, offers both inward and outward opening window and door designs, and is available in a choice of three styles for different types of traditional buildings. Offering excellent levels of security, weather resistance and thermal insulation, CS 77 products are also available in a huge selection of colours and finishes.
