There’s no doubt that composite products have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity within the construction industry. Since the turn of the millennium, sales of timber structure aluminium windows and doors have increased on an almost yearly basis. That news comes as no surprise to Stanbrook & Nicholson, with our hugely popular Heritage window range consistently ranking among our best selling products. Having said that, composite products are still constantly evolving and they are likely to become even more popular in the years to come.
When shopping for windows and doors, many people are presented with the option of composite products simply because they can’t choose between one material and another. In our experience, this is a relatively common conundrum for consumers. People can sometimes be overwhelmed by all the alternative benefits of timber and aluminium so they opt for a product that brings them the best of both worlds. But while composite products might be providing a convenient ‘outlet’ in this respect, it’s important that we don’t fall into the trap of simply viewing composite materials as a mere sub-category of aluminium or timber. We prefer to see composite goods as a category of products in itself.
The best thing about composite products is their ability to combine the best qualities of two materials in one cohesive product. Yet, our timber structure aluminium windows and doors don’t simply ‘borrow’ the best features of timber and aluminium and lump them into a window or door. For a start, it takes considerable industry expertise to accurately identify what these features are exactly. We then formulate a way of merging all these great qualities into a window or door that offers the high standards you’ve come to expect from Stanbrook & Nicholson. It’s due to the skill and vision that goes into this stage that composite goods deserve to be treated as more than an simple alternative to timber and aluminium.
We’re always updating our product range so watch out for more composite windows and doors in the future. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about our composite products, click here or contact us today.
