Velfac composite windows have distinctive uniform sight lines that create sleek aluminium facades outside - with pine framing for beauty and character inside
For clients wanting their own ‘grand design’, Velfac aluminium and timber glazing delivers architectural freedom, and maximum daylight, without compromising thermal or acoustic performance.
At Ecclestoun, a new-build project in Rothbury, Northumberland, by architects Model Projects and Smailes Construction, full height Velfac composite glazing, including hinged and bi-parting doors, have been used to create a stunning two-storey facade. The Velfac system also features in punch-hole windows (some remote controlled), access doors and as an oriel window - with every unit maintaining uniform sight lines despite the variety of specifications.
Impressive U-values (as low as 0.8 W/m²k for triple glazing) means no cold spots or draughts, allowing full use of floor space right up to the glass. Composite glazing is extremely low maintenance and doesn't need re-painting, only regular cleaning. Different frame finishes, inside and out, can also be specified at no extra cost - underlining the versatility of the composite frame design.
