Superior performance and narrow frames characterise the Slimline 68

Narrow frames and superior performance characterise Slimline 68, a new window system that’s been launched to the trade by leading aluminium systems company Reynaers. This window, designed for UK homes, completes the range of specialist systems from Reynaers that are ideal for the trade market. With a huge range of design options, the SL 68 has industry-leading thermal insulation and is one of the most secure windows available – meeting PAS24 and Secured by Design standards. This security is enhanced with hinge-side security brackets, a multi-point locking mechanism and lockable handles.

Rebecca Cope, marketing manager at Reynaers, said: “The SL 68 system has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the UK residential windows market and has incredibly slim frames with high performance. The outward opening window means that customers can now choose a product that gives them maximum daylight access, whilst keeping properties warm and secure. With no compromise on thermal efficiency or weather resistance, the system is designed to be timeless. The slim frames and clean lines make this window ideal for both contemporary and more traditional properties and what’s more, its 68mm frame depth makes it perfect as a replacement window as it usually fits within the existing plaster line.”

The SL 68 can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ and a U-value of 1.0 W/m2K with triple glazing. When it comes to double glazing, the Window Energy Rating is A, with a U-value of 1.4 W/m2K. This level of market-leading performance allows fabricators and installers to add real value to their product ranges. Innovative adjustable corner profiles for bay and bow windows are also possible. SL 68 security meets PAS24 and Secured by Design standards, as well as achieving Class 4 air tightness. The window has a wind-resistance rating of E2400, and water-resistance of E1050. As the name suggests, SL 68 has a frame depth of 68mm, and can carry a maximum glass thickness of 43mm.

Reynaers prides itself in offering specialist and innovative products, and it identified a need for a high-quality and high-performance standard casement-style window for fabricators and installers in the UK but with the additional benefit of slim frames. The SL 68 aluminium casement window is the first of its kind for Reynaers, in line with an increased focus on the trade market. SL 68 is designed to offer the ultimate in flexibility and streamlined performance. The strength of the aluminium frame and clever design make it possible to create windows with large panes of glass. Ease of maintenance and durability make it the perfect window for fabricators, installers and end-users alike. Available in hundreds of colours and combinations, the SL 68 has a choice of handles to suit each individual project. Reynaers’ impressive selection of doors, together with this latest offering, means that fabricators and installers are able to choose from a range of trade products of exceptional quality and performance. A full suite of brochures are available for customers to use to showcase the systems and target the end-user of the products.
