BDC Aluminium Continues Stellar Success Story

by | May 15, 2024 | Trade News

BDC Aluminium is reaping commercial dividends as a result of its longstanding decision to offer windows and doors using Stellar – the aluminium system from Epwin Window Systems, according to the company.

The fabricator, which supplies high-end fenestration products for both domestic and commercial projects, is continuing to see strong and sustained demand for its Stellar range which includes fully flush, bifold and patio doors, as well as fully flush, casement windows.

Andrew Speakman, group commercial director at Rocal Endurance, BDC Aluminium’s parent company, explains: “BDC has been fabricating the Stellar system since 2020 and throughout that time it has remained a consistently sought after choice.

“We attribute this enduring popularity to the fact that the system delivers win-win benefits for the installer and for the property owner or occupier.”

The entire system is internally glazed meaning glass can be fitted from inside the property with no requirement for scaffolding whilst patented knock-in beads expedite the glazing process and provide the added benefit of neater interior gasket lines.  In addition, flat rebates simplify the fitting of glazing packers. Plus, Stellar frames are flat backed, making it easier to position them perfectly, and its flush doors have fully adjustable hinges, enabling adjustments to be made once the door is in place, according to the company.

Stellar window and doors are also PAS 24 certified and offer exceptional thermal performance. This contributes to a more comfortable living environment, lower heating costs, reduced environmental impact, and levels of energy efficiency that comply with Approved Document Part L.  Stellar is even an advantageous choice for the fabricator too. The fact that it is a pre-gasketed system reduces waste and cuts fabrication time by up to 20%.  Further time savings stem from an innovative reverse butt joint, which eliminates the need for dummy sashes and reverse adaptor profiles, from a reduced requirement for chevrons and corner ties, and from the use of faster to fit espags rather than shoot bolts on Stellar windows, claims the company.

Andrew Speakman, group commercial director, BDC Aluminium commented,  “As well as quicker fabrication and shorter order lead times, Stellar also employs common and interchangeable components across the system, reducing stockholding.

“Stellar has always sat perfectly within the wider BDC Aluminium offer as it epitomises our focus on providing the very best products backed by equally high standards of service and support”.

“As it is manufactured with a focus on continuous improvement, it continues to evolve and to offer new benefits that keep pace with changing market conditions, legislation, and consumer demands.”

He concludes: “We’ve enjoyed impressive success with the Stellar system to date. We look forward to building on that long into the future.”
