KAWNEER - Future-Proof Windows & Doors Launched By Kawneer

A premium range of windows and doors that is future-proof to 2019 has been launched in the UK by leading architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer (www.kawneer.co.uk/pr/720).

The AA®720 series comprises a tilturn, inward-opening side-hung and bottom-hung, tilt slide, vertical and horizontal pivot, top-hung casement, inward and outward-opening doors, folding/sliding door and a fire-rated door and fixed light.

It is the manufacturer’s most comprehensively flexible product range to date, and with U-values as low as 0.9 W/m˛K*, is set to outperform the anticipated requirements of the 2013 and 2016 Part L amendments to Building Regulations.

The windows are available in four levels of thermal performance – the AA®720, AA®720 HW, AA®720 HI and AA®720 HIPlus. The series of wider 72mm profiles incorporates the very latest thermal technology including extruded polyamide and ABS thermal breaks, insulated centre seals, foam isolators and foam core insulation.

The doors are available in two levels of thermal performance – the AA®720 and the AA®720 HI. Here, the series of wider 72mm profiles incorporates extruded polyamide thermal breaks and foam core insulation.

Expected to supersede the AA®600TE series as Kawneer’s flagship range, the AA®720 series is based on a range that has performed in Germany, an even more onerous market, regulations-wise, for several years, becoming Kawneer’s best-seller there. Its launch in the UK has required the largest-ever investment in new dies at Kawneer’s factory in Runcorn, Cheshire.

The windows encompass a wide variety of configurations – the standard window with traditional straight contours, and five new variants - the softline with rounded contours particularly suitable for residential applications, the integral (concealed vent) with narrow sightlines and visible aluminium facets on the vents, the renovation with angular or chamfered contours, a narrow sightline window for the replacement of steel heritage windows, and a curtain wall lookalike.

The doors comprise a standard door with straight contours that is available in open-in and open-out variants, a design door with rounded and angular contours to suite with the softline window for residential applications, and the AA®720 FR fire-rated system for doors and fixed screens which has been tested to 30 minutes for integrity and insulation.

All the windows and doors offer extensive hardware configurations including new concealed hinges and barrel hinges for entrance doors as well as a wide variety of handle and locking options.

Kawneer product manager Mike Young said: “Utilising the expertise of a sister company has meant we can bring economies of scale to this new Pan European product series, so while it is benchmarked to the best in terms of thermal, technical and commercial performance, it is also competitive on price.”
