This is the view of Gerald Allen, Marketing Manager of Epwin Window Systems, who said: “Stellar has taken the ever-popular flush styling to the next level when we launched the flush door. The flush lines extend inside and outside of the door for the ultimate in simple, streamlined design that’s so popular with today’s design-conscious consumers”.
Stellar is perfect for residential doors, internal doors and French doors because the slim sightlines ensure the frame never dominates. There’s also a bifold door, perhaps the most popular aluminium product for UK homeowners. Usefully, it’s available with a choice of PVC-U beading that suites with PVC-U systems for a more harmonious solution.
The door line-up will be completed with the addition of a Lift & Slide Patio Door which is due to be launched soon. It’s available in 2, 3 and 4 pane variations and is suitable for openings of up to 6.5 metres. Sash widths of up to 3 metres wide are available via a range of interlock sizes to achieve the best combination of sightlines and size capability.
Gerald said: “Stellar doors are available with a variety of threshold options across the range to meet different access needs and design requirements. They deliver in terms of performance too. They meet Building Regulations standards without the need for foams or special polyamides and can achieve a Doorset Energy Rating of C and U-values as low as 1.1W/m2K. Weather performance is rated to BS6375-1 and the system offers multi-point locking and meets PAS24:2016 standards.
Intelligently designed from scratch, Stellar is a pre-gasketed system, which saves up to 20% on fabrication time and reduces overall waste. A patent pending knock-in bead system means easier, faster glazing. Thresholds are removable, so in the event that a replacement is needed, there’s no need to remove the doorframe. And fully adjustable hinges on the flush door mean that once they’re fixed in place, they’re easy to adjust.
Gerald concludes: “Change and innovation are what drives any industry forward. It’s something we’re passionate about as a company and the Stellar door range blazes a trail in aluminium door design and offers a stylish alternative to timber, PVC-U or composite doors delivering new opportunities for our customers.”
