Next generation fenestration
Linktrusion fom Deceuninck is a new manufacturing process that combines the thermal efficiency expected from PVCU, with the strength and durability of aluminium, but up to 30% lower cost.
Deceuninck’s Rob McGlennon said: “As specifiers, clients and architects have woken up to the benefits of this unique technology, we are now looking for ambitious companies across the UK to help meet this relentless demand for next generation fenestration solutions and to help grow our fabrication and installation network.
“London and Quadrant (L&Q) was one client who chose this advanced technology for their recent flagship project in Abbey Road, Barking. Being one of the UK’s leading housing associations and one of London’s largest residential developers, this technology was fitting for this attractive development.
“Using Deceuninck’s unique Linktrusion technology the project was completed in Decoroc anthracite grey RAL 7016 – a very popular choice of colour in the current commercial sector.
“The system really is a dream to sell as it is unrivalled in the market place. The benefits of this exceptional manufacturing process include the ability to produce windows which are as strong as steel reinforced windows, 30% more thermally efficient with U-values below 0.8W/m2K, with up to 40% saving on materials and weight.
“New design opportunities are also generated through slimmer sightlines and increased sash sizes (1,150mm x 2,500mm single doors), traditionally the domain of aluminium, is now easily manufactured using Linktrusion.”
