Consumer trends for larger windows and wide-span sliding doors means that today’s PVCu frames need to accommodate much heavier panes of glass.
It means that steel reinforcement for PVCu windows and doors is more important than ever before.
On top of this, the trend for coloured foiled PVCu windows and doors make them more susceptible to bowing, warping and twisting when the frames expand and contract from the heat of the sun.
Very dark frames, such as black and anthracite grey absorb much more heat than their white counterparts. By reinforcing colour foiled windows with steel reinforcement profiles, you can prevent frames from distortion and reduce the number of call backs for installers.
The Superior Sections team has a great deal of experience of the glazing industry and understands the fabricator’s needs for cut lengths of reinforcement, delivered ‘just-in-time’ to alleviate the need to hold large stocks of multiple reinforcement profiles.
Our standard reinforcement range covers a broad cross section of profiles that will suit any number of PVCu systems and includes channel, lipped box and full box profiles. This allows us to produce your reinforcement without the cost of tooling or extended lead-times.
We also offer a broad range of door reinforcement profiles for PVCu panel, patio and composite doors that can be supplied with pre-punched hole/slot details and cut to length, ready for fabrication.
