    Double & Triple Glazed Timber + Aluminium Windows

    Double & Triple Glazed Timber + Aluminium Windows

    Timber + Aluminium combination windows provide an alternative solution to traditional timber windows. The addition of an external aluminium cladding to the timber frame improves durability and weather resistance of the window (reduce impact from weather and UV exposure). This results in a reduction in the necessary maintenance and care of a standard timber window (frequent re-painting or nourishment of the surface), whilst still providing the interior of the building with the classic and high-end look of timber. An aluminium profile is mounted onto the exterior surface of the window frame and sash. Timber + Aluminium windows come in a number of timber species and finishes. The windows can be built in large sizes and a number of shapes and configurations.

    Timber + Aluminium windows are the climax of modern window technology. Timber + Aluminium windows combine the strength, weather resistance, low maintenance and durability of aluminium externally with the classy, high-end and stylish appearance of timber internally.

    Timber + Aluminium composite windows are manufactured by mounting external aluminium cladding to an 80 mm thick solid timber frame. This external aluminium cladding adds strength to the window and protects the timber surface from weather and UV-impact increasing the longevity of the window and reducing maintenance requirement (periodic re-paint and nourishment of the surface not required).

    Timber + Aluminium windows are available in both double and triple glazing for superior thermal and acoustic performance. These windows can also be made in very large sizes and spans due to their structural stability, making this a very attractive option for commercial buildings and high-end residential design.

    Timber + aluminium windows are available in a number of timber species. To see the full range of timber species, please refer to the Timber Windows page. The timber profile is completely finished in the factory to your choice of stain or paint colour. The timber profiles are machine painted prior to installation of aluminium, glazing or gaskets, to ensure a high quality and even finish, with all surfaces treated and protected. The timber stain types and colour options can be assessed on the downloads tab..

    The type of glazing selected for a window can influence the daylight transmission, thermal properties, sound insulation, safety, privacy and security of the whole window unit. It is essential that the glazing type is specified carefully for each project to ensure the end product provides a healthy, comfortable, temperature stable and quiet environment.

    To achieve this balance, modern glazing technology has advanced to provide a wide variety of glass types and coatings. Double and triple glazed windows can use these glass types in combination in order to achieve the desired outcome. Double glazing combines two layers of glass, with an insulated spacer in order to increase the thermal insulation of a window. Triple glazing combines 3 layers of glass with two insulated spacers in order to achieve greater thermal insulation.

    SCS supplies double and triple glazed windows in a wide variety of shapes and configurations. The shape of the window and opening type can influence the thermal and acoustic insulation, security, safety and structural strength of the window.

    Most common type of window used throughout Europe and supplied by SCS. In one position the window tilts inwards at the top for permanent ventilation. The second position swings inwards (similar to a door) for flush ventilation and cleaning. This window type uses a multi-point locking system to apply high compression on the double seals, to reduce air penetration. These windows can also be made in a double opening (French style) to increase the clear opening and ventilation.

    Advantages

    • Extremely high thermal and acoustic performance
    • Minimal air leakage/drafts
    • Increased security
    • Secure in tilt function (steel bar) for constant ventilation
    • Easy to clean, especially for upper storey windows

    Disadvantages

    • Must be installed and adjusted by an experienced installer
    • Interior blind solutions must be carefully designed to integrate well with this solution

    Flyscreens are an important component of all residential and commercial properties. They are mainly used as a barrier against insects, however with changing technology they can fulfill many other purposes besides preventing the intrusion of insects. Different materials types and configurations can be used for insect prevention (standard flywire), bush fire protection (metal mesh) and security (steel mesh and diamond grill screens).
    For all our window projects, SCS can supply the matching flyscreen or supply you with a suitable flyscreen contractor, to ensure the appropriate screens are supplied to your project.
