5 Things you should know about Stellar Aluminium Systems

26 November 2019

The retail aluminium market is up 120% since 2010, so it’s hardly surprising that more fabricators and installers are looking to get on board. If you’re one of them, here are five reasons Stellar is the best system to help you achieve your potential:


Stellar is 15-20% quicker to fabricate, saving you time and money


Stellar is a pre-gasketed system, which means it’s up to 20% quicker to fabricate. It also has an innovative reverse butt joint, which means no dummy sashes or reverse adaptor profiles are needed. It all adds up to a system that is much more efficient to fabricate than its rivals, so it lowers your labour costs and improves your bottom line.

Stellar is easier to install, saving you time and money


The installation process is transformed with Stellar too. The system features patent-pending knock-in beads, for example. This means glazing is quicker and easier than ever before. It also leaves a much cleaner gasket line on the inside. It’s a little detail that creates a sleeker aesthetic that homeowners love.

Other developments include flat rebates to make fitting glazing packers simple, flat backed frames so they’re easy to position perfectly and the fact it’s internally glazed so no scaffolding is needed.

Stellar uses 30% less aluminium, taking aluminium’s sustainability credentials to the next level


Stellar’s intelligent design that improves fabrication and installation also means it generates less waste and uses approximately 30% less aluminium than rival systems. In use, it offers excellent thermal efficiency and a 12% larger glass area means less reliance on artificial light. And at the end of life it’s fully recyclable.

It all adds up to a system with excellent sustainability credentials, reflecting today’s concerns.

Stellar has the slimmest sightlines on the market so homeowners love it


Aluminium is renowned for its sleek and sophisticated aesthetic. With Stellar, that reputation moves to the next level. Stellar has the slimmest sightlines on the market – it is at least 30% slimmer than the main competing systems. It means it taps into the trend for large glazed areas better than anything else out there.

It’s also the only aluminium system on the market to have a fully flush option, a frame that’s flush inside and out. For homeowners looking for a pared back aesthetic, Stellar is the answer.
