Stellar from Epwin Window Systems has been capturing headlines since the aluminium window and door system was launched last year. The double G19 award-winning system was designed to push the boundaries of aluminium window and door design and offers numerous industry-firsts that mean it is faster to fabricate and simpler to install than rival systems.
One of Stellar’s stand out features is the unique patent-pending reverse butt joint which allows products to be fabricated without dummy sashes or reverse adaptors. Gerald Allen, Marketing Manager at Epwin Window Systems explains: “Most aluminium systems use dummy sashes, couplers or reverse adaptors to ensure the windows can be internally glazed. This can detract from the overall appearance of the window and uses more resources to achieve. The patent-pending reverse butt joint from Stellar overcomes this problem and ensures the slim lines are preserved and uses less materials. Furthermore, our intelligently-designed internal cleats ensure a clean joint is achieved offering superb aesthetics too.”
Stellar was designed by a team of talented industry experts with an impressive track record in the aluminium sector. The brief was to develop an aluminium window and door system that harnessed the developments witnessed in the PVC-U sector and give the retail and light commercial markets exactly what they needed and had been asking for. Years of experience and extensive market research were combined with an open mind and high ideals to deliver the ground-breaking window and door system.
Stellar consists of two open-out flush casement window options and a flush residential door. The system will soon be joined by a lift and slide patio door and a bi-fold door that offers the lightweight strength of aluminium combined with the option of PVC-U beading that means it sits more comfortably in UK homes.
All products come with the option of crimped or mechanically jointed finishes offering strong design flexibility.
Gerald concludes: This combination of market-leading factors, together with a wealth of market-first advantages are the reasons Stellar has experienced its first flush of success and is fast becoming the go-to aluminium system.”
