Timber and aluminium windows are very easy to maintain and yet stunningly beautiful. You get the benefit of tough, low-maintenance alumnium on the outside, polyester powder-coated and painted to match, with the warmth and tactile heart of your choice of timber on the inside.
Franklin Composite range of windows, doors and conservatories are unique in design integrating both timber and aluminium; offering a strong, durable, yet attractive window that meets high performance specifications and can fit into an array of markets - hotels, healthcare, commercial and residential. Franklins manufacture all their windows in the UK so supply is consistent, ontime and therefore better for the consumer.
The timber and aluminium are completely integrated into a monolithic profile by design - no veneers, no adhesive - to produce a high performance window A high acoustic performance is obtained through the mass of the timber element of the window along with 28mm double glazed units and weatherstripping. Wood is one of natures best insulators, hence, the window is an aid to reducing energy cost within the building.
Composite windows are essentially maintenance free, requiring only normal cleaning of the external face to ensure cost-effectiveness in service Franklin not only offers a high performance window, but one that allows the window to contribute to the design internally. The perfect choice for replacement windows and because of the aluminium exterior they last a lot longer than other types of timber composite windows.
Composite replacement windows offer the perfect solution to the homeowner that requires a higher quality product than that offered by plastic, the very slim sightlines match the traditional single glazed sightlines from the bygone age which is often the only solution for listed buildings that need to comply with modern energy requirements.
