At Alex Trade Frames, we make no secret about wanting to work with the best of the best, which in turn lets us pass this quality onto our dedicated network of installers. Continuing this sentiment is our strong relationship with one of Europe’s most trusted and reliable systems companies: Kömmerling.
With multiple bases of operation worldwide and over 100 years’ experience in the sector, for those still wondering, we’ve put together 6 reasons why Kömmerling is every installer’s uPVC system of choice.
1. A+ energy ratings easily achievable
Thanks to a combination of five-chambered profiles (two more than the standard) and Planitherm Total Plus glass integration, Kömmerling windows and doors from Alex Trade easily meet the minimum energy efficiency levels in the UK. All will achieve ‘C’ ratings as standard, but can in special cases reach as high as ‘A+’ for homeowners concerned with stamping out draughts for good.
2. Certified to BS7412, BS7413, PAS023, PAS024, and BS7950
Ensuring that installers enjoy the easiest and most hassle-free experience possible when the time comes to install on site, Alex Trade provides Kömmerling windows and doors supplied to meet the following certifications: BS7412, BS7413, PAS023, PAS024, and BS7950. All help to signify that the products abide by and meet the necessary build-quality, security, and energy level standards.
3. Over 40 individual colour tones
We at Alex Trade Frames recognise that consumer tastes and personal preferences are everchanging, and so readily offer installers Kömmerling windows and doors in a choice of 40 distinct finishes. From authentic woodgrain tones to simple Cream, White, and Anthracite Grey, all bases are covered, whether you’re installing in a residential home or office building.
4. Engineered using lead-free uPVC
Kömmerling windows and doors from Alex Trade primarly come engineered in Kömmerling’s O70 Gold system which itself is extruded using their exclusive lead-free compound Greenline. During a time when all eyes are on the fenestration industry to reduce energy consumption and preserve the environment, Greeline successfully ensures that nature’s resources are impacted much less.
5. Steel reinforced for improved strength
Easily rivalling aluminium window and doors systems, O70 Gold is supplied to installers fully reinforced using steel. This helps improve the overall strength of the uPVC window and doors’ frames, allowing them to accommodate much heavier glass panes when necessary.
6. 23% of all UPVC frames installed in Europe are Kömmerling
With 100 years’ experience comes with it a great deal of reach, leading to the staggering statistic that 23% of all UPVC frames installed in Europe are Kömmerling. Such an impressive feat would not be possible were it not for the system’s willingness to innovate, sustain, but more impressively, perform. Opting to install Kömmerling means joining a long legacy and offering a brand homeowners trust and recognise.
