Senior Fibre Systems encompasses an innovative range of pultruded fibreglass windows and doors, offering an impressively high specification and excellent acoustic performance.
Frames are environmentally friendly and boast superior energy efficiency without the need for thermal breaks.
Profiles are inherently stable and fully repairable and so are ideal where robustness is key i.e commercial. Frames can be repaired by filling and sanding and will bring them back to a high standard.
When compared to vinyl or aluminium, fibreglass is more durable and exhibits the thermal efficiency of wood.
In tests it was proven:
Strength – Excellent - Eight times stronger than vinyl and twice as strong as aluminium
Hot/Cold Performance - Excellent: - Withstands heat up to 200 farenheit, and cold to -40 Centigrade
Thermal Expansion – Excellent – Low expansion and contraction rate assures consistent, weathertight seal between sash and frame
Impact Resistance – Excellent – Withstands impact without deformation
Durability – Excellent
Energy Efficiency – Excellent – Superior insulating properties, condensation resistance and U values
Fibreglass windows have an approximate 40 year lifespan and so have an excellent cost to life ratio and are available in a choice of colours.
