Whilst aluminium has not been the traditional choice for many homes, the discerning homeowner will appreciate the slim clean lines, the strength and security of the locking system, the fact that little maintenance is required and the wide variety of opening styles. You may choose from tilt before turn or outward opening casement styles which combine perfectly with fixed sections.
Our window systems all share a slimline profile, which with the benefit of todays’ high thermal efficiency glazing, offer stunning modern designs that maximise the amount of light yet outperform the requirements of the latest Building Regulations Requirements.

This stunning ‘glass box’ was constructed to bring an ‘al fresco’ kitchen experience to this charming Cheshire country cottage. To prepare food in this area gives an open feel with abundant light that contrasts perfectly with the more restrained interior of this listed building. The large, slimline aluminium sliding patio doors simple disappear into the adjacent framing when open, to further enhance this custom designed unique extension which fits seamlessly with the cottage.
Special silicone sealed double glazing units were used, incorporating an inner leaf of 12mm thick tempered safety glass with an ultra high-performance thermal coating and an outer leaf of similar substance with a cleverly placed integral screen printed area to hide cables etc.
The units had an Argon inert gas filled cavity with warm edge spacer to ensure maximum thermal efficiency and had polished edges that enabled a glass to glass seal without additional framing.
This RIBA Award winning property, a combination of different products used includes TAGGLASS slimline aluminium patio doors that achieve a floor to ceiling opening, coupled with floor to ceiling ideal Combi aluminium framed windows and timber/aluminium composite opening and fixed windows. James Price supplied and installed both external and internal glazing in this entire award winning architect designed house ensuring every element was in touch with the overall design concept of a ‘green’ residence.
The large glass to frame ratios, thermally insulframes and the high performance double glazed units come together to ensure the best possible use of energy using as little fossil fuel as practicable whilst retaining a comfortable and attractive internal environment.
