‘Phenomenal’ uptake

Kingfisher Windows added Stellar, the aluminium window and door system from Epwin Window Systems, to its portfolio in June.

Since then, the company said it has seen a phenomenal uptake of the new system and the dedicated aluminium factory is busy manufacturing orders for the trade, retail and commercial sectors.

Mark Barker, production manager at Kingfisher Windows said: “Stellar is an easy and straightforward system to fabricate and looks superb. It really is a game changer in aluminium system design and looks different from anything else currently on the market which is a big advantage for our customers.”

Deborah Beeley, sales and marketing manager, said: “Our installer customers tell us they like fitting Stellar because it’s quick and easy to install thanks to its pre-gasketed, knock in beads. Coupled with the fact that consumers like the slimline, flush aesthetics of the windows and doors, it’s fast becoming the go-to aluminium and door system.”

One of Kingfisher’s installers, Darren Capitano from Abbey Windows in Leeds, recently fitted 44 Stellar Flush Casement Windows and a French Door in a high-end consumer home.

“I love fitting Stellar,” he said. “Consumers love it too. The low-level gaskets mean the frames look even slimmer, which taps into the trend for big expanses of glass which are so popular at the moment, so it’s a straightforward sell.”
