Designed and tested to exceed all contemporary standards, the Westcoast System presents a broad range of purpose made factory finished windows, doors and related products at inexpensive prices. The system comprises both outward and inward opening windows and doors, suited fixed lights, panels and louvres, which are all custom manufactured to size, shape and finish giving designers the flexibility to construct the facade of their choice.

Construction

Composite construction combines extruded aluminium alloy profiles to EN AW 6060-T6 and close grained laminated North European Redwood, Class J10 in accordance with EN 942:2007. Other timber species are offered.

Casement sections as well as the timber frame are precision machined and assembled with pinned and glued comb joints. Mullions and transoms are assembled with mortice and tenon joints. External aluminium frame profiles are assembled with sealed mitred joints by way of crimped angle cleats, bonded with PIB tape and mechanically fixed with stainless steel pins to internal timber members. The windows are completely weather stripped with EPDM slot seals.

Appearance

Aluminium profiles are chemically pre-treated and powder coated in whichever standard RAL colour required and specified gloss level in accordance with BS6496: 1984. The timber is completely factory finished with a multi-coat spray applied water based clear lacquer, paint to NCS/RAL specification or an extensive collection of stain finishes.

Glass & Glazing

Our windows are factory double or triple glazed to specification in accordance with BS6262: 1982 with 28mm or 36mm dual sealed units constructed to EN1279-2: 2002. They are either externally or internally bead glazed using a drained and ventilated glazing system with sealed units incorporating composite super spacers and gas filling as standard, jointly with security tape glazing where needed. All available high performance glass types can be specific to link particular needs for thermal insulation, acoustic attenuation, solar control, safety and security.

Open Out Windows

The Westcoast open out range offers a choice of top hung and side hung windows encompassing casements hung on butts, 90° projecting and completely reversible hinges with suited fixed lights and panels.

Extremely easy to operate and with an elegant traditional styling, the system incorporates slim transom and mullion details and components permit the construction of ribbon window and screen assemblies.

Open In Windows

In conditions where conventional open out windows are inappropriate, the Westcoast System offers a choice of side and bottom hung open in casements or tilt and turn windows along with an assortment of suited fixed lights and insulated panels.

Simple to operate, clean and re-glaze securely from within the building, the design incorporates transom and mullion details as well as components. They also permit the construction of ribbon window and screen assemblies.
