VELFAC are experts in glazing, and can provide tailored advice and consultancy at every specification stage – from initial design ideas through to post-installation support. Talk to VELFAC as soon as your project starts to take shape, and use their product knowledge, and their industry expertise to specify glazing which meets your budget needs, design vision, and performance targets. VELFAC composite windows bring together the best of both worlds; the durability and versatility of aluminium and the beauty and warmth of natural wood. The wood frame contributes to great energy performance with U-values as low as 0.8W/m²K, and the slim 54 mm sightlines maximise natural light. Opening and fixed lights have the same sightlines, providing a consistent aesthetic across window units.
