Double & Triple Glazed uPVC + Aluminium Windows
Double & Triple Glazed uPVC + Aluminium Windows
uPVC + Aluminium combination windows are a new and increasingly popular material choice. This system combines the superior thermal and acoustic performance of a uPVC frame with the strength, stability and colour diversity of aluminium. The uPVC frame is clad externally with aluminium, which can be powder coated or anodised in a huge variety of colours and finishes. The external aluminium cladding also gives the window a modern and stylish appearance. The special bonding technology, which combines these two fantastic materials allows for greater design flexibility in terms of the windows finish, size and configuration.Get a Quote Download Brochure Download Glazing Details Download Finishes Download Drawings
uPVC + Aluminium windows combine the advantages of both materials into one structural element. uPVC + Aluminium windows consist of the 76 mm uPVC profile with aluminium cladding mounted externally. The external aluminium cladding offers limitless possibilities in colour design, whilst the uPVC profile ensures the low maintenance, dimensional stability and thermal and acoustic performance of the window unit.
Together these materials create a structural stable and durable product, with immense structural capabilities allowing large sized units and spans to be created. uPVC + Aluminium windows are an attractive choice for all projects, including both business premises and high-end architectural homes. uPVC + Aluminium windows are available in double and triple glazed for superior thermal and acoustic performance.
SCS only uses the best and most reputable materials for its products. Our uPVC profiles are supplied by Koemmerling, the leading profile manufacturer in Germany and internationally. This allows us to bring the latest designs and technology to the Australian market.
uPVC + Aluminium windows can be supplied in a range of colours and finishes. The uPVC profile can be left as the standard profile colour of white, or it can be laminated in a range of standard foils. More information on the uPVC finishes can be seen on the uPVC Window page and the standard uPVC laminate range can be accessed via the Downloads tab.
The external aluminium cladding can be powder coated in a wide variety of colours from the RAL colour range. The RAL colour chart can be accessed via the link below.
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.
- 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
- Must be installed and adjusted by an experienced installer
- Interior blind solutions must be carefully designed to integrate well with this solution
The installation of high quality and well finished handles will greatly influence the final design and appearance of the window. Selecting a complementary handle type and colour will impact the overall style of the room. SCS supplies a range of high-quality window handles for our European windows in a variety of styles. Our handles are available in both key lockable and non-key lockable to suit all design, safety and security requirements.
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.
Windows supplied by SCS, can come with special features and profile additions in order to suit the required style.
Glazing bars and colonial bars are an important decorative window feature in many architectural designs. SCS supplies a range of products with glazing bars, colonial bars and glazing separators to suit your needs, whether you are creating a Hampton style home, preserving the character of a Federation style home, matching heritage overlay or enhancing an architectural element.
