A stellar extension for Capital Windows

16 November 2022

Specialist fabricator Capital Windows has signed a new three-year supply agreement with Epwin Window Systems. The trade and domestic fabricator has been manufacturing the multi-award-winning Stellar aluminium window and door system since 2019 and it’s clear why it’s the right system for the growing business. Peter Adams, General Manager at Capital Windows, said: “We chose Stellar because we were impressed with the unique flush aesthetics of the aluminium system which offered something very different. The market certainly agrees – as demand for Stellar from our customers continues to rise and we have secured multiple high-value projects as a result of the system’s impressive credentials and high-end appeal.”

Stellar is the only aluminium system on the market to offer a genuinely fully flush window, with flush detailing inside and out. This is achieved thanks to the patented Reverse Butt Joint, that means no dummy sashes or reverse adaptor profiles are needed. And thanks to the system’s intelligent design protocols, it easily met the requirements of the new Part L legislation and has the added benefit of being ready for the proposed amendments to Approved Document Q too.

Peter said: “We have been very impressed with the clear communication from Epwin Window Systems concerning the changes to the Building Regulations. The information supplied was expertly executed and clear to understand, which ensured we were ahead of the market for manufacturing compliance.”

Capital Windows manufactures the full range of Stellar products including the new Stellar Slimline Bifold door and the New Stellar Tilt and Turn window. Peter said: “The latest products are packed with unique features. For example, the new Stellar Slimline Bifold door benefits from tailed glazing gaskets and an under-glass seal which breaks up the cavities behind and under the glass to enhance the thermal performance. And installation is quick due to the unique patent-pending adjustable locking stile, so the clearance between the lock and keep can be adjusted to take up cutting tolerances, eliminating the need for adjustable door jambs.”

Peter also highlights the unique aesthetics of the system as a significant selling point. He said: ”Stellar is a straightforward system to sell into the domestic market. Consumers are immediately impressed by the flush aesthetics and appreciate its modern, contemporary appeal. And installers find it so easy to fit thanks to the pre-gasketed clip in beads which dramatically speeds up installation.”

Capital Windows is based in Uxbridge, Greater London and works with domestic, trade and commercial sectors throughout the South East of England. For over 35 years the company has positioned itself as a specialist designer, supplier and installer of the latest generation of technically advanced window and door products.

Capital Windows is an ambitious company and despite the market downturn, it continues with its growth strategy. Peter concludes: “While the market may be slowing, we remain busy with a strong pipeline of high-end Stellar projects. Our ambition has always been to provide cutting-edge products supported by exceptional service from an impressive team. And by partnering with Epwin Window Systems, we are on target to meet this ambition.”
