Norscot alu-timber windows and doors offer the best of both worlds - good looks combined with superior performance. Known as Design 5, they are essentially a timber product clad externally in powder coated aluminium. This provides composite windows and doors which have the traditional beauty and workmanship of natural timber on the inside with the strength, resilience and colour possibilities of aluminium on the outside.
Design 5 offers a selection of outward opening styles available within the same frame. The most popular being side / top hung and side / top swing reversible opening lights and fixed lights, either internally or externally beaded. Product benefits include high levels of energy efficiency, top security with multi-point locking systems, enhanced appearance with uniform sightlines with any opening type and full range of BS or RAL colours with various timber treatments.
Norscot is very aware of the issues of sustainability and only uses materials which are sourced from sustainable forests and recycled materials, providing they do not compromise quality.
Aluminium is virtually 100% recyclable and does not age in use, materials installed in buildings over 50 years ago are being removed and recycled into new aluminium products. As the life expectancy is beyond 50 years, the use of aluminium is seen as essentially a sustainable product.
Timber can be sourced from all parts of the world where a sustainable policy for renewal is in place. Finishes can last for many years now without further application and most high quality finishes now use water based lacquers and preservatives. Timber is also an excellent insulator and does not give off toxic fumes when burnt.
The combination of these two materials is an obvious choice where customers seek windows and doors offering superior overall performance and its not surprising that composite windows and doors are growing in popularity for both commercial and domestic use.
There can be little doubt Norscot has stood the test of time. This means customers can expect products which are “fit for purpose” and a reliable service. They can also have total confidence in the comprehensive guarantees offered by the company.
