Origin, bi-folding doors, windows, and blind manufacturer, has updated its window system.
The Origin Window was launched on October 1st, and features a twin flush casement. It’s fitted with a revolutionary new thermal break, and is void of the overlapping framework that is synonymous with aluminium rebated systems.
The Origin Window is suitable for installation in traditional townhouses, new builds, and projects under strict planning regulations in conservation areas. The aluminium frame allows for slim sightlines, and with the edge of the frame as little as 50mm from the glass, more light can be achieved.
Other features include the highest grade stainless steel hinges, hinge guards installed as a standard, and impenetrable crimped frames and locking handles.
The new thermal break gives the Origin Window better thermal efficiency, making it capable of achieving an energy rating of A +21. It can be insulated with Aerogel – a material that boosts the window’s thermal efficiency to achieve a certified 1.0 U value.
Aerogel is lightweight with a low thermal conductivity. Its composition means that a single 10mm thickness of Aerogel increases insulation by 67%, reducing energy bills.
Neil Ginger, Origin CEO, said: “We’re the first manufacturer on the market to offer an internally and externally flush casement as well as the introduction of Aerogel. Origin prides itself on innovative design and up-to-the-minute manufacturing processes. The new Window demonstrates our focus on continuing to improve our systems for both our trade and consumer customers.”
