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.
