Rehau is making its Rio flush window system ‘even more indistinguishable from real aluminium’ with the addition of a new square edge low level bead.

With black flipper detail as standard and allowance for 28mm glazing of the windows, these features enable customers to compete with aluminium flush alternatives on the market, particularly when paired with Rehau’s coloured foils such as smooth anthracite grey.

Clare Higgins, senior product manager for Rio added that one of the key selling points about this new feature is that customers can mix their window styles internally and externally: “If someone lives in a Georgian property but wants to have a minimalistic, industrial style living space, Rio flush fit windows can bridge the gap perfectly,” she said.

“Available as a special-order option, the new square edge bead can be used internally to complement a modern interior design with a grey foil, but keep a traditional timber look externally with a Turner Oak foil.”

She continued: “Rio flush fit has been a huge success since launching last year. However, we never stop thinking about ways to improve our product ranges. Out in the field our installers are telling us that more people are moving towards clean-cut modern window styles, so we wanted to add a feature that would make Rio even more indistinguishable from real aluminium.”
