Project Details: Contemporary aluminium windows in Hertfordshire


The project centres around a contemporary-designed house with various shaped elements in its doors and windows. Key features include gable windows, raked head windows, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

These design elements demanded innovative glazing solutions to enhance the property’s modern aesthetics while ensuring functionality, security, energy efficiency and meeting the design brief of the client.

Showcasing our expertise in aluminium windows and doors in special shapes and designs, an installation of shaped aluminium windows supplied and fitted in a beautiful modern home in St. Albans, Hertfordshire. 

This project features a range of our premier brands, including Aluk shaped aluminium windows, Origin OW70 casement windows, Sunflex sliding doors, and Origin OB-49 French doors.  Every product highlights our knowledge and professionalism in providing bespoke aluminium glazing for our clients.

Origin OW70 Casement Windows


For standard window designs, the ultra-slim Origin OW-70 window system is the perfect modern window. Its minimal frame lines are ideal for creating windows with larger opening elements and bigger glass panels. These windows, finished in Anthracite Grey, come with top-hung opening vents, slimline locking handles, and trickle ventilators, complying with current Building Regulations.

Aluk Shaped Aluminium Windows


Aluk is one of the leading aluminium window brands in the UK and part of our extensive aluminium windows collection. The windows used for this project comprise various large, shaped windows.  These are designed to create stunning floor-to-ceiling windows with a raked head design. Strategically placed to illuminate the staircase and gallery areas with natural daylight, they’re designed to create a glazed elevation. At the same time, they seamlessly integrate within the architecture of this house. 

Around the house, we’ve also used Aluk shaped aluminium windows to create picture windows with sloping heads and long window designs with shaped and angled ends. Every window is bespoke, precision made and professionally installed by our trained installers.

Origin OB-49 French Doors


The Origin OB-49 French door system stands out in the market.  As well as being one of the slimmest bifold doors available, you can also create single and double doors.  Accompanying the shaped aluminium windows, this project showcases the flexibility of the Origin door system, designed to create taller and wider door sets, enhancing natural light entry and offering spacious access to patios and gardens.

With just 110mm door mullion sightline, that is virtually half the face sightline of PVCu doors and conventional French doors, the result is bigger glass, less visible aluminium, more light and altogether better views.

The doors feature luxurious Hafi handles in brushed stainless steel, an 8-point locking system, high-security key cylinders, and are double glazed with safety glass throughout, with a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill. 

Additionally, the OB-49 doors are brilliantly designed in complex gable designs, creating expansive glass walls and demonstrating the versatility of the premium aluminium systems we provide.

Sunflex SVG20 Sliding Doors


Alongside our bespoke French door designs are large patio sliding doors using the Sunflex SVG20 system. With impressive engineering, quality and overall design, Sunflex sliding doors accompany the glazing throughout this product. 

With their ultra-slim 20mm mullions, Sunflex doors are better than other doors with a similar mullion sightline, because they are flush internally and look the same from all angles.  This is a better design feature than other slimline doors where the mullion projects into the room. At the same time, Sunflex sliding doors are unique in the market with the ability to open and park completely flush.

Designed as three panel doors with a flush track, we’ve created for our client a sliding door solution that maximises the available opening, seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces and designed with level internal floors and outside patio slabs.

Finishing off the doors are designer satin stainless steel bar handles, multipoint locking, insulated aluminium profiles and high-performance safety glass.
