Capitalising on new build opportunities with Stellar

19 February 2024

Specialist fabricator Capital Windows is leveraging the advantages of Stellar Aluminium from Epwin Window Systems to advance its presence in the new build sector.

Peter Adams, General Manager at Capital Windows, explains: “All Stellar windows and doors are compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations, enabling us to provide customers with a complete new build solution utilising a single aluminium system. This simplifies the process and ensures consistent quality and aesthetic appeal throughout the entire construction project.”

Stellar’s windows and doors can achieve a U-value of 1.2 W/(m²K) with triple glazing, the regulatory standard for the new build space. This includes the Stellar Flush Tilt & Turn Window, Flush Casement Window, Fully Flush Casement Window and the Bay Window, as well as the Flush Residential Door, Flush French Doors, Lift & Slide Door, Slimline Bifold Door and the new Stellar Inline Sliding Door.

Unlike other aluminium systems, the absence of workarounds to achieve compliance reduces profile usage by 30%, streamlining fabrication processes and enhancing profit margins through improved material utilisation.

Peter commented: “We offer a complete portfolio of Stellar Aluminium window and door products, leveraging its seamless compliance capabilities to gain a competitive edge in the market.”

Peter also highlights the visual appeal of Stellar as a key factor in securing new build projects. He said: “Stellar’s sleek and modern design resonates well with housebuilders. Installers also appreciate its user-friendly features such as its pre-gasketed clip-in beads which speed up installation. It’s become our go-to aluminium system.”

As testament to Stellar’s credentials, Capital Windows has secured many lucrative contracts, including several high-end new build projects. Notably, the company supplied multiple Stellar windows and doors for a prestigious £2.5 million bespoke new build property. Peter said: “The high-end specification on this project was exacting, but Stellar more than delivered.”

Commenting on the success of Stellar in the new build space, Phil Parry, Technical Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Stellar, along with all our systems, offers inherent compliance with Part L regulations, presenting a value-added proposition for fabricators like Capital Windows operating in the new build sector. We are delighted to see the remarkable success of the Capital team.”
