Epwin Window Systems unveiled its first aluminium system at FIT on 21st May 2019.

Mark Austin, Sales Director (Aluminium) at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Anticipation has been building for months and we are thrilled to unveil Stellar. It has been designed to deliver over and above any other aluminium system on the market and offers several market-first selling points. It’s a game-changer.”

Stellar is aimed at the retail and light commercial sector and was designed from the ground up by Epwin Window Systems’ expert dedicated in-house aluminium team in response to customer demand.

Stellar offers two casement window options and both offer market-first selling points. The first option is stepped on the inside and flush on the outside. It has 30% slimmer sightlines and 12% more glass area so lets in more light than rival systems. The second option is unique in the market: a true flush sash casement window, with no stepped frame and a flush finish inside and out taking the window’s aesthetics to the next level.

Alongside the casement windows there are flush door and bifolding door options available now. They will be joined by a lift and slide patio door in the summer.

Stellar has been designed to offer superior fabrication benefits. In fact, the system is 15-20% quicker to fabricate than rival systems and uses approximately 30% less aluminium, reduces labour costs and minimises waste. These fabrication advantages are achieved with features such as a fully pre-gasketed bead, sash and outerframe, something that is unique in the market. There is also a patent-pending reverse butt joint, which is fabricated with no need for dummy sashes or reverse adaptor profiles.

Stellar offers superior installation advantages too and is up to 20% quicker to install than other systems. This is thanks to features such as the patent-pending knock in bead, which means no wedge gaskets are needed making it far quicker to glaze, as well as offering superb internal aesthetics. And it’s internally glazed, which makes installation quicker and easier too.

In terms of thermal efficiency, Stellar offers a rating as low as 1.1W/m2K with triple glazing. Security is outstanding too. Apart from a host of intelligent security features, Stellar uses Yale door and window hardware, so benefits from outstanding protection against forced entry, as well as the Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee for an extra line of support and sell into the consumer.

Industry buzz has been building in recent months and we have known Epwin Window Systems was going to launch something big. In Stellar, it has more than delivered. It is everything you would expect from a market leading business and more.
