Doncaster-based aluminium systems house Exlabesa has just launched the KS59 Window Suite, which has been designed with the steel replacement market in mind. Derek Hodgson, Exlabesa’s General Manager, said: “The KS59 offers a technically advanced framing system with slim sightlines and is perfect for a wide variety of commercial applications.”
As Derek says, the KS59 Window Suite is perfect for a wide variety applications and can be used in punched hole, composite and ribbon window refurbishment schemes as well as new build projects, which gives it great flexibility.
The system is fabricated using a mechanical corner cleat which means easy and fast production. To speed up production still further, it can be dry glazed using clip in beads, something that also means quicker glass replacement. The system uses 28mm glass as standard and is suitable for top and side hung applications. Easy clean and egress options are also available.
The KS59 has an impressive set of credentials to its name. It has polyamide thermally broken aluminium frames for improved thermal efficiency and offers excellent weather resistance because it is fully drained using either a cill section or an innovative face drain cap that features an internal baffle that stops wind noise and minimises the build-up of water. Trickle ventilation to Building Regulations can also be integrated. The system is weather tested to BS 6375-1, security tested to PAS 24 and operation and strength tested to BS 6375-2.
It’s an impressive system from an impressive company. Exlabesa is one of the country’s most experienced aluminium systems houses. It has two extruders, two ageing ovens, a vertical powder coating plant and is one of the few companies in the UK to have an in-house anodising plant. This means the company can guarantee the quality of all its items as well as offer excellent turnaround times. Mill finish items typically take four working days and paint finish items typically take seven working days and all orders are delivered using its own transport for further reliability.
