Stellar, the new aluminium window and door system from Epwin Window Systems, is packed with innovative developments that set new standards for the aluminium industry. For fabricators, one of the most important developments is that it’s 20% faster to fabricate.

Paul Booth, Design Director, Aluminium Products, Epwin Group Plc, who led the team that developed Stellar, said: “There are all kinds of operation efficiencies fabricators can look at to speed up fabrication times and help reduce material costs. But Stellar has been designed to be faster to fabricate in the first place. It gives fabricators an extraordinary competitive advantage.”

Stellar delivers such impressive efficiency gains thanks to several innovative features. The biggest gain is from the fact it’s a pre-gasketed system. Stellar also uses a patent-pending knock-in bead system that results in faster, easier glazing too. Other innovations include fast-fit espags, chevrons and corner ties are only required on the flush sash and all products have direct fix hardware. Furthermore, stock levels are easier to manage as many parts are consistent across the entire suite.

As well as delivering faster fabrication, Stellar brings further benefits to fabricators as it’s a truly adaptable system. For example, the system allows for mechanical joint fabrication and is a perfect fit with PVC-U cills too.

Paul said: “The joy of Stellar was that our brief was to go back to the drawing board and develop a system that delivered state-of-the-art design without compromise. We involved fabricators in the development process to ensure we designed a system that gave them what they needed. The feedback we’ve had since the launch shows that we have more than succeeded in our aim.”

Stellar has attracted a great deal of interest thanks to its market-first Fully Flush Casement Window, which has flush lines inside and out, and the Flush Casement Window that offers up to 12% more glass area. But as the faster fabrication reveals, this is just the start of the Stellar story. It truly is the future of aluminium windows and doors.
