Slim beadless aluminium system
Sheerline has launched Classic, its first residential aluminium window system, a high-performance replacement for traditional slim steel windows.
Designed from the ground up, Sheerline Classic is an ultra-secure, ultra-slim, beadless aluminium system that offers exceptional performance combined with simply beautiful aesthetics – at the heart of which is Sheerline’s patented corner jointing method, the company said.
Sheerline’s construction method removes the need for separate glazing beads. Tested to PAS24:2016, Sheerline Classic passed with exceptional results.
The patented corner method also allows each window to be individual hand tuned, which eliminates stepped corners.
The Sheerline Classic system uses Thermavic multi-chambered thermal breaks to give U-values as low as 1.4W/(m2K) in double glazed windows.
All Sheerline profiles and components are designed and made in Britain at Sheerline’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Derbyshire. All Sheerline profiles and components are available in five working days for any of 11 stocked colours, which include three anodised finishes. Bespoke colours and dual coloured orders are available within 10 working days.
Roger Hartshorn, Garnalex CEO, said: “For years, many aluminium fabricators and installers had to put up with limited product development and poor service. But Sheerline saw aluminium’s potential and we set out to transform the way aluminium profiles are supplied, and aluminium windows and doors are fabricated and installed.
Over the past two years our top team of designers have examined every aspect of aluminium windows to develop Sheerline Classic, a truly groundbreaking ‘heritage’ system that’s easy to fabricate, and a dream to sell and install.
“The launch of Sheerline Classic is the first of our systems to re-invent aluminium windows and doors. We’ll be adding to our range of products with Sheerline Prestige at the end of the summer.”
