HWL Trade Frames has added the Sheerline Prestige aluminium range from Garnalex to its offering.

“We’ve already had a lot of interest from customers in our Sheerline offer, particularly for the bi-fold,” said director Graham Howatson, “That includes those who are frustrated with lead times on their existing aluminium supplier, but also because with Prestige, we can now offer a combined, high-quality PVC and aluminium solution.

“Prestige perfectly complements our PVC products,” said Graham. “That incorporates our Residence Collection range, including our non-glass bonded Timberweld R9, and our new 70mm Kommerling Timberweld flush casement.”

The trade fabricator will be offering its customers the complete Sheerline Prestige range of windows and doors and is now taking orders for its anticipated bi-fold option.

“One of the standout features for us is the new design of thermal break,” he continued. “Called Thermlock, it helps to deliver exceptionally low U values, but importantly, it does so without the need for a traditional polyamide insert.”

He explained that a global shortage of PA66 compound, used to make polyamide thermal breaks, has resulted in a force majeure from suppliers that is expected to remain in place until the start of 2022.
