Whether your home is modern or traditional, we can offer a window solution to match your precise requirements. We have rounded frames, square frames and even heritage windows that replicate steel.
Today’s aluminium windows are the ultimate ‘must have’ in home improvement circles as they are increasingly specified for homes across the UK and Ireland, for new build or refurbishment. The very basic silver windows of the 1970’s have been supplanted by slim, thermally efficient frames, combining today’s technology with amazing surface finishes, to include textured and anodised.
Our aluminium window frames are slim, secure, strong with exceptional thermal properties. They really are stealing a march on timber and uPVC frames in terms of longevity, slim design, aesthetics and performance. Aluminium windows are simply superior in almost every aspect and today they are very affordable.
KAT aluminium windows are manufactured to precise tolerances because our modern CNC equipment is totally uncompromising. Fortunately, our partners Kawneer and Schuco also work to exceedingly tight tolerances when extruding aluminium and they share our philosophy of investing in great people, technology and machinery. At Kawneer we have an in-house test rig and every product is rigorously put through its paces before release to the market.
Quality is at the heart of everything we do because we want to provide you with the very best aluminium windows for your home. All of our windows are guaranteed to meet or exceed the current standards specified by UK Test Institutes, for weather performance and high security.
Our aluminium profiles are powder coated (painted) in ‘Qualicoat’ approved plants, which is the only global specification for architectural powder coating. This guarantees durability in harsh locations such as seaside or industrial applications, so the Qualicoat specification offers complete protection. Our frames have a minimum of 60 microns of paint applied and this can be increased if extra durable finishes are required. This very high quality powder coating process means we can be confident that our windows will still look amazing in 20 year’s time.
KAT Kawneer windows are available in a huge range of finishes and colours and every window is ‘made to measure’. Our range includes very slim frames designed to replicate old steel ‘Crittall’ windows, once common in art deco homes.
KAT Aluminium windows are manufactured using the latest technology, machinery and manufacturing processes. Each window is then hand-finished and checked for quality in our Cheshire factory.
Design your window to be top hung, side hung, fixed or tilt and turn for easy cleaning. Windows can open inwards (Tilt Before Turn) or outwards (Casement) to allow for curtains and blinds, with a wide range of colours available to suit your style of home. KAT manufacture Bifold doors, Patio doors and Front doors in colours to match our windows, each carrying a 10 year guarantee.
Integral venetian blinds are made bespoke to fit neatly between 2 panes of glass, offering a contemporary look for maintenance free Aluminium Windows in a choice of 10 colours; White, Yellow, Hay, Sage, Sky, Cream, Putty, Silver, Dark Silver and Dark Grey.
Raising and lowering of the blinds is controlled using either a rotational wand, rotational knob or a cord system. The blinds carry a 5 year guarantee, are maintenance free, conform to BSEN 13120 Safety Standards and are suitable for 28mm double glazed window sashes up to 1200mm wide.
Aluminium windows have gained in popularity in the later half of the 20th century.
The strength of Aluminium allows windows to be made with slim sightlines, resulting in a higher percentage of glass allowing more natural light into your home. Aluminium is more resistant to the elements than PVCu and Timber and is not likely to warp or rot. Windows require very little maintenance, just a wipe with a damp cloth when needed.
Aluminium is the optimum material for manufacturing windows and doors and that is why it is widely specified by Architects for most serious new build and refurbishment projects.
For your safety and security, we fit key locking handles to all of our windows.
There are 5 handle colours to choose from:
We take your security very seriously and without compromise fit each of our windows with key locking furniture, in five different colours.
The MACO RAIL locking handle conforms to PAS 24:2012 enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in the UK. The friction hinge conforms with fire egress regulations and has an easy clean option fitted as standard.
A little time and care with your choice of colour is advised and your selection should be influenced by your style of property, surrounding architecture or your other windows and doors.
