New aluminium system

Garnalex has launched Sheerline Prestige, its most versatile and thermally efficient aluminium window and door system.

Featuring a full depth Eurogroove, Prestige lets fabricators use their existing PVCU hardware to streamline manufacturing.

Prestige boasts a wide range of window styles and includes doors and French doors. The system is available in the same style options and 12 stocked colours as Classic, Sheerline’s ultra slim window system. Prestige also includes 28mm-44mm glazing options and a choice of small, intermediate and large outer frames to accommodate different plaster lines and window reveals.

Built around Sheerline’s Thermavic multi-chamber, thermal design, U-values are as low as 0.9W/m²K for triple glazing and 1.3W/m²K double glazed. Sheerline’s sills feature this same technology coupled with in-built weather sealing that keep draughts and rain outside. Prestige also incorporates Sheerline’s patented corner jointing method.

Roger Hartshorn, Garnalex’s CEO, said: “The launch of Sheerline Prestige is timely. The market remains strong and consumer demand for high performance, beautiful products is soaring. Sheerline is perfectly poised to help fabricators and installers benefit from this demand.

“Our first system, Sheerline Classic, is a super-slim specialist window, ideal for replacing traditional steel-framed windows or contemporary properties. Our second system, Sheerline Prestige, is our most versatile system with beautiful looks, and doors and French doors, and a choice of sizes and designs to suit any type of property. The feedback from fabricators has been extremely positive and we’re excited about the year ahead.”

All profiles and components are available in five working days in 12 stocked colours, including three anodised finishes. Dual colour combinations from this stocked range are available on the same five-day turnaround, while bespoke colours are available in 10 working days.
