Aluminium specialist Alu Haus has become the latest in a series of fabricators to start manufacturing Stellar, the double award-winning aluminium window and door system from Epwin Window Systems. Jason Bamford, Director of Alu Haus said: “We have added Stellar to our portfolio because it’s a visually superior product. The slimline aesthetics and the flush appearance are unique to the market, and it’s the best-looking aluminium product out there.”
Epwin Window Systems says Stellar is the only aluminium system on the market to offer a fully flush casement window, which has flush lines inside and out. It means it more than delivers on the pared-back aesthetic that’s so popular at the moment. The system’s slim sightlines also tap into the trend for light-filled spaces. They are said to be around 30% slimmer than comparable aluminium systems, which translates to a 12% larger glass area.
As well as the aesthetics, Jason highlights the ease of installation. “As a fabricator, we’re always looking for ways to make our installer customers’ lives easier. This is what Stellar does. The knock-in single leg bead means glazing is rapid as well as contributing to the sleek aesthetics. Plus, it doesn’t have a back wedge, so there are time savings here too.”
As well as offering clear advantages for homeowners and installers, Stellar also offers benefits for fabricators. It’s pre-gasketed, which saves up to 20% on fabrication time. Plus chevrons or corner ties are only needed on the Flush Sash Window, no shootbolts are required because the system uses fast-fit espagnolettes and all hardware is direct fix.
Based in Nottingham, Alu Haus is a specialist aluminium manufacturer and supplier. The company states that management and staff have many years’ experience and combined with its cutting-edge manufacturing facility, it means customers are assured of excellent quality every time.
Mark Austin, Sales Director (Aluminium) at Epwin Window Systems, concluded: “We are delighted to welcome Alu Haus on board. They share the same commitment to quality as we do and we’re looking forward to helping them to maximise the opportunities Stellar has to offer.”
