Focus on trade

Narrow frames help characterise Slimline 68, a new window system that’s been launched to the trade by aluminium systems company Reynaers.

The SL 68 has industry-leading thermal insulation, according to the company, and meets PAS24 and Secured by Design standards. This security is enhanced with hinge-side security brackets, a multi-point locking mechanism, and lockable handles.

Rebecca Cope, marketing manager at Reynaers, said: “The outward opening window means that customers can now choose a product that gives them maximum daylight access, while keeping properties warm and secure. With no compromise on thermal efficiency or weather resistance, the system is designed to be timeless.

“The slim frames and clean lines make this window ideal for both contemporary and more traditional properties and, what’s more, its 68mm frame depth makes it perfect as a replacement window as it usually fits within the existing plaster line.”

The SL 68 can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ and a U-value of 1.0W/m2K with triple glazing. When it comes to double glazing, the Window Energy Rating is A, with a U-value of 1.4W/m2K.

The SL 68 aluminium casement window is the first of its kind for Reynaers, in line with an increased focus on the trade market.
