Aluminium Cover Windows
Aluminium clad timber windows bring together the best features of aluminium and timber.
What makes aluminium clad timber windows superior to other types of windows is their durability, thermal performance and craftsmanship. This is why they are often used in the UK in luxurious homes and Passive Houses.
Aluminium is an excellent material for improving the durability of timber windows. By using German engineering processes we can combine timber frames on the inside with a protective aluminium shell on the outside.
Schnauber bespoke aluminium clad timber windows are available with a wide selection of glazing, CLT, colour, ironmongery and design options to meet your security, aesthetic, and energy needs.
All our bespoke aluminium clad timber windows are affordable and meticulously crafted to last.
These products should be installed in properties that are exposed to severe weather conditions, including temperature fluctuations, high levels of driving rain and exposure to high wind velocities.
Typically Aluminium-Clad windows are used in contemporary buildings, due to their sleek and modern appearance. This visual quality and performance makes them ideal for use within commercial properties too, including restaurants, offices and visitor centres.
Innovative locking mechanisms, offering an enhanced security performance compliant with PAS 24:21012, ensures that your property stays safe and secure.
High levels of thermal efficiency with ‘U’ value to 0.99 available from double glazing or choose triple glazing to enhance the ‘U’ value to 0.77.
The timber windows are either painted or stained internally in an unlimited range of colours using the latest environmentally friendly water resistant paint technology.
The external aluminium frame is painted from a choice of over 200 RAL colours.
Wide selection of ironmongery including hinges, handles and fittings.
The aluminium sourced for these windows uses sustainable production methods and balances the initial high embodied energy with an increased product lifespan, reduced need for maintenance and improved thermal performance.
Ease of cleaning will depend upon the style of window that has been chosen.
These windows are tough wearing and work well in challenging environments.
