65,000 and counting: Affordable Windows reaches Timberlook milestone
Manufacturers of the ever-popular Timberlook Window and door range, Affordable Window Systems, has reached a uniquely significant milestone in its Blackpool factory by fabricating its 65,000th Timberlook window.
Launched by Affordable Windows just six years ago, Timberlook has quickly become one of the company’s flagship brands, demonstrating the enduring popularity of uPVC flush sash windows.
The range has been designed with painstaking attention to detail, replicating the aesthetics of heritage timber frames featured nationwide in historic and rural areas. Modern requirements are easily catered for with low U-values and Timberwelded joints. However, care has also been taken to retain the appearance of a traditional window by concealing trickle vents externally and having the slimmest astragal bar on the market.
Affordable Windows is also aware of the need to supply into the conservation market and has produced a specifiers guide showing all cross-sectional details of the window and its ancillary profiles such as cills, transom weather bar and astragal detail. Both this and the new brochure are available on the new Timberlook website.
The popularity of Timberlook windows and doors is indicative of the continuing demand for heritage products that incorporate updated features. As Sales Manager Ryan Fisher comments: “We have seen huge success with the Timberlook range, especially with installers willing to embrace the heritage market that homeowners are demanding.
“We are thrilled to be two-thirds of the way to 100,000 frames in six short years. Our new purpose-built factory will continue to play a pivotal role in supporting the expansion of this crucial facet of the business. The potential for installers to engage in this market is enormous and is growing yearly. Installers can contact us directly to find out more.”
