Why not complement your VELFAC windows with a VELFAC entrance door? VELFAC entrance doors are crafted from durable aluminium and inner pine, offering a robust yet stylish addition to your home. They come in a variety of modern designs, including plain or grooved flush doors, fully glazed options, or those with glazed apertures. All VELFAC entrance doors boast the ‘Secured by Design’ accreditation, ensuring optimal safety with features such as internal beading that prevents external removal of glazing, multi-point locking, and exceptional construction strength. Additionally, VELFAC doors can be paired with VELFAC 200 windows to create an elegant glazed entrance screen.
The VELFAC 200 windows & doors – in detail
The signature VELFAC frame combines durable external aluminium with natural, welcoming internal timber. By placing the moving aluminium sash directly in front of the fixed timber frame the window delivers a ‘floating sash’ effect, further emphasised by the recessed weather seal. The slim frame maximises natural light while uniform sightlines deliver an identical external appearance for every window unit, irrespective of opening function, manual or motorised operation, or whether double or triple glazed.
Low maintenance design
Proven to withstand the most extreme weather conditions, the external aluminium frame also never needs repainting for the lifetime of the installation.
VELFAC windows offer U-values as low as 0.8W/m2K for triple glazed units. The slim frame contributes to excellent thermal (and acoustic) insulation as glass is a better insulator than the frame.
Sustainability is fundamental to the VELFAC design philosophy. All materials used are responsibly sourced, wood treatments are water-based, and every window unit is 93% re-usable.
VELFAC 200 windows are Secured by Design approved and offer a range of security features including internal glazing beads (to prevent the external removal of glass panes), and multi-point locking systems. The external aluminium frame is also highly resistant to forced entry.
Glass options and accessories
VELFAC offers a range of glazing options to customise window performance, including a selection of opaque designs for added privacy and security. VELFAC-designed handles, hinges, restrictors and other accessories are also available.
The standard VELFAC frame features polyester-powder coated external aluminium and painted or lacquered internal timber. The frame can be finished in different colours inside and out in any of the full range of RAL colours, or in a granite or anodised coating (aluminium only).
VELFAC offers a 12 year comprehensive product warranty on all windows, and five years on all casement, sliding, and external doors.
