A Window into Aluminium

As demand for triple glazing increased by 125% last year, Andy Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at SILKA for England and Wales, talks about how SILKA triple glazed Aluminium Windows are meeting these demands.

SILKA all-new futureproof slim sash windows

According to the Rated People 2023 Home Improvement Trend Report, more homeowners are looking to install new windows and find ways to make their homes more energy efficient in 2023 – and aluminium windows offer all the forward-thinking features they’re looking for.

Renowned for their structural integrity and style, aluminium windows deliver a lightweight alternative to their heavier timber and PVCu counterparts, they also require minimal maintenance to keep them at their best for longer. Plus, with easy installation and the benefit of added protection – thanks to its resilient and durable materials – aluminium windows are the perfect package to create a stylish, safe and energy efficient home.

Leading by example is the newly launched range of SILKA Aluminium Windows, that delivers its revolutionary design and technology. Its collection of ahead-of-the-curve Aluminium Windows – available in both slim and standard sash with a choice of 60mm and 72mm deep outerframes – promises future-proof performance and extraordinary style.

As with all SILKA products, every innovation benefits from its ground-breaking thermal barrier, Thermafill™. The highly insulated Thermafill™ technology is a revolutionary new method of insulating chambers inside both the outer frame and sashes, which helps to provide top levels of energy efficiency and top performing U-values. SILKA Aluminium Windows achieve U-values as low as 0.8 W/m­²K, adding extra insulation into the home – a home improvement project that is the third most popular job in 2023, according to Rated People.

Plus, with demand for triple glazing surging by 125% in 2022 and 15% of homeowners looking to install it in their homes in 2023, SILKA is already one step ahead – offering triple glazing as standard. That’s not all. All SILKA Aluminium Windows come complete with the frame and glass – for hassle-free, one stop delivery.

The delivery of triple glazing has been a standard offering at New World Developments, the company behind SILKA, for many years. Its confidence in delivering even the largest of units, for the likes of the triple glazed Lift & Slide Door is based on its proven track record as the frame and glass are manufactured at the same site.

So, it’s no surprise that the combination of Thermafill™ and triple glazing delivers ultra-low U-values, making SILKA Aluminium Windows a top glazing system.

As well as ticking all the energy efficiency boxes, SILKA’s Aluminium Windows also benefit from SILKA’s exclusive SILKtouch sputter coat technology, offering a smooth as ‘SILKA’ feel to touch, while its robust finish helps resist finger marks and avoid unwanted smears and scratches. SILKA has also redefined the top standard of security, with its high-security multi-point locking system, so security is never compromised – helping to offer added peace of mind to homeowners.

SILKA Aluminium Windows are also available with a dummy sash configuration, which is a big advantage against other aluminium systems. The square-edge detailing perfectly suits both contemporary and heritage properties, particularly for traditional bay windows with a dummy sash. Their 66mm thickness and 44mm triple glazing – which come at no additional cost – makes them the most exciting system on the market.

SILKA is the future of aluminium windows. It is the perfect system for installers looking for an aluminium glazing system to keep them ahead of the curve.

The team at New World Developments has used its technical expertise to develop the SILKA brand and its revolutionary system, with the aim of creating a suite of high performing, aesthetically pleasing products to bring the future home.
