Welcome to the next generation of PVC-U windows.

Our new Optima range represents the latest innovation in windows and doors. Its name reflects its uncompromising design. It promises the best thermal performance for today and for the future. Profile 22 is introducing FOUR new systems including TWO complete main profile systems and TWO brand-new niche window systems. That means more choice for you – AND your customer.

Reason #5

Reason #5

Traditional character details

Choosing a high performance PVC-U product doesn’t mean compromising on style. We have considered the design of our flush casement windows right down to the last detail. Our flush deep bottom rail gives the appearance of a classic timber window, and it’s a feature that you won’t find anywhere else.

Our revolutionary additional centre seals to the outerframe and sash give outstanding insulation and weather protection. This unique feature ensures you get the very best performance from our window systems for the future.

Reason #9

Reason #9

Total design flexibility

We offer the widest choice of ancillaries on the market, which means you can offer more choice to your customers. Our broad range includes cills, baypoles, accessories and packers, giving you the flexibility you need for your project.

Reason #10

Reason #10

Widest choice of glazing options

With the widest range of glazing options on the market (24-44mm), including triple glazing in three sizes, you have more ways to offer affordable and energy-efficient windows with Optima. Our cost effective triple glazing achieves U-values sub-1, without the use of expensive Krypton Gas.

Reason #11

Lowest U-values

Double glazed units made from Optima systems achieve a 1.2 U-value, which guarantees that you meet building standards. U-values as low as 0.8 W/m2K can be achieved when using a triple-glazed unit filled with Argon gas. This means you can compete in the market, with 1.2 W/m2K being easily achievable.

Reason #12

Reason #12

Higher energy ratings

When combined with soft coat glass, low iron, warm edge spacer bar and Argon gas fill, an Optima double glazed unit achieves an A+ rating. With triple-glazing, the possibilities are endless. When used with Argon gas, achieving A++ is simple.

Reason #13

Reason #13

10mm cover for improved weather protection

Our window sashes now benefit from a 10mm cover that not only offers exceptional weathering protection, but also achieves an improved Window Energy Rating due to the increased size of the glass area. This is a cost effective solution to reducing draughts and achieving thermal standards.

Reason #14

Better drainage

All Optima window systems have been designed to offer superb long-term durability and weathering protection. By incorporating deeper drainage channels into their designs, we’ve also added the benefit of faster water drainage. This not only means fewer service call-outs, but reduces ongoing costs in the long term.

Reason #15

Reason #15

Superior security and strength

Optima window systems combine a host of features to maximise security and strength. A central Eurogroove gives our sashes greater rigidity. We have also implemented strategic local wall thickening for 35% better screw and hardware retention. Our secure bead system passes security tests without glazing clips and is ready for proposed enhancements to PAS24.

Reason #16

Reason #16

Wider range of colours now stocked

Our U-PVC systems give you even more flexibility for achieving a unique decorative finish. The Profile 22 colour range offers a huge choice of durable colour foil options, including subtle shades, bold tones and varnished wood effect. You can even order any colour you need from our new
Xpress range.

Reason #17
