Energy-efficient doors, windows and architectural glazing

Of critical importance to the overall aesthetic appeal and energy performance of any building development - domestic residence, apartment scheme or commercial structure – is its external appearance. And central to this is the choice and specification of the ultimate finishing statement of a property - its windows and doors.

Not unlike Excel Structures’ approach to ensuring the optimum system of build is adopted, the same can also be said when working in close cooperation with self-builders, contractors and developers in delivering a suite of windows and doors that serve to accentuate and complement the architectural design adopted for any specific project or development.

It is here that Excel Façades not only focuses on the provision of beautifully designed, bespoke premium products, but ones that deliver world class performance when it comes to thermal and acoustic characteristics, not to mention exceptional security protection.

Excel Façades work closely with a range of leading, high performance glazing and external door entrance system manufacturers such as Velfac®, Solarlux®, Rationel®, and Origin.

The focus is on providing a range of superior façade solutions that exhibit long life, market leading thermal performance and which require extremely low maintenance.

All systems are designed, supplied and installed by Excel Façades as a complete package to new build or refurbishment projects.

Velfac®

Velfac composite windows bring together the best of both worlds; the durability and versatility of aluminium and the beauty and warmth of natural wood. Aluminium is both highly durable and low maintenance, ensuring the windows will last 40 years or more. The wood frame contributes to great energy performance with U-values as low as 0.8 W/m²k.

VELFAC 200 System aluminium/wood windows also deliver contemporary styling. The slim 54 mm sightlines maximise natural light, and opening and fixed lights have the same sightlines, providing a consistent aesthetic across window units.

A VELFAC® window unit is 93% re-usable. Approximately 30% of the aluminium used to produce VELFAC profiles comes from recycled sources, and 95% is produced using hydro-electricity.

Solarlux®

Solarlux is one of the leading manufacturers of premium glass system solutions offering bi-fold doors, glass extensions, glass canopies, glasshouses, glass sliding doors and glass balcony solutions. A commitment to high quality production "Made in Germany", excellent service and the desire always to be one step ahead is what the family company stands for.

A passion and drive for excellence has grown Solarlux into a global brand trusted by homeowners, architects and design professionals alike. Every product in the Solarlux range has been developed from years of market analysis and obsessive innovation and is perfectly tailored and precision-engineered to suit any home or commercial property.

Solarlux® uses FSC® and PEFC-certified woods, whilst its aluminium production is powered using hydro-electric energy.

Rationel®

Rationel high performance Scandinavian style windows aren’t simply an accessory – they’re designed to fuel life, whether seeking sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the everyday, or looking to dream beyond the usual horizon.

Bringing together daylight, beauty and warmth to truly amplify a happy home, high energy-efficiency comes as standard no matter what type of home you live in. Like all Excel Façades offerings, all Rationel windows are made entirely bespoke, where the utmost care is taken into consideration, from colour and glazing all the way through to opening and closing functions.
