 Hybrid - A new concept in composite facade supply.  

It's the best of both worlds. Hybrid Systems offer a range of windows and doors that combine the long life and low maintenance of aluminium on the outside with the high insulation, environmentally focused benefits of 100% PEFC accredited timber to the inside.

Hybrid is a high insulation composite timber and aluminium window system which is complimented by a matching door and curtain wall system. This makes the product an ideal solution for both new-build and refurbishment projects.

By pre-treating the timber the possibility of the timber becoming warped or twisted is eliminated while the aluminium is powder coated for minimal maintenance.

Hybrid windows provide the high levels of thermal efficiency that you would expect from timber with the latest glass technology to deliver U Values that are well within the current and anticipated future Building Regulation requirements.  

The impressive thermal efficiency is achieved as heat is transferred more effectively through the timber allowing the frame to maintain a temperature of 20°c, resulting in minimal heat loss and condensation.

We offer a variety of glazing options to complement our range, maximise thermal efficiency and acoustic performances. The glazing is carefully inserted between the aluminium and timber frame for increased levels of security.  

Not only does our new range provide superior quality thermal efficiency and lasting durability, it's also aesthetically pleasing. Our hybrid windows can be finished with virtually any colour in either gloss, satin or matt.

All of the timber used is from sustainable forests, the aluminium components are from hydroelectric smelters and any waste is fully recycled. Our stunning new range allows you to improve your thermal efficiency, reduce your noise levels and increase security without compromising on style. Products in the range include sliding/folding, tilt/slide. tilt/lift doors, large expanse panoramic windows and casement windows.


Senior Fibreglass Windows & Doors


Senior Fibre Systems encompasses an innovative range of pultruded fibreglass windows and doors, offering an impressively high specification and excellent acoustic performance.


Frames are environmentally friendly and boast superior energy  efficiency without the need for thermal breaks.


Profiles are inherently stable and fully repairable and so are ideal where robustness is key i.e commercial. Frames can be repaired by filling and sanding and will bring them back to a high standard.


When compared to vinyl or aluminium, fibreglass is more durable and exhibits the thermal efficiency of wood.


In tests it was proven:


Strength – Excellent - Eight times stronger than vinyl and twice as strong as aluminium


Hot/Cold Performance - Excellent: - Withstands heat up to 200 farenheit, and cold to -40 Centigrade


Thermal Expansion – Excellent – Low expansion and contraction rate assures consistent, weathertight seal between sash and frame


Impact Resistance – Excellent – Withstands impact without deformation


Durability – Excellent


Energy Efficiency – Excellent – Superior insulating properties, condensation resistance and U values


Fibreglass windows have an approximate 40 year lifespan and so have an excellent cost to life ratio and are available in a choice of colours.
