Mix and match for the best results

Liniar Wickfield Windows

When it comes to choosing the right windows and doors for your project, one of the first decisions is which materials to use. Combining materials across a project can bring many benefits – especially if you can select them all to match.

Traditionally positioned at the lower end of the market, uPVC products have made technical leaps to become a serious contender in the new build and self-build markets in recent years. No longer characterised by chunky, white frames, uPVC windows, doors and lantern roofs can be foiled before manufacture; offering woodgrain or flat finishes in a huge range of colour options. This results in a world of different options for your project.

Thermal efficiency

One of the biggest reasons to look at uPVC is its thermal properties. Systems such as Liniar’s EnergyPlus window have been specially designed with multiple, symmetrical chambers inside the frames, as well as co-extruded seals – both contributing to excellent Windows Energy Ratings of up to A+30.

Beautiful lines

The latest ‘flush sash’ window systems offer an authentic timber appearance, with the opening pane nesting perfectly inside the outer frame. Many buildings in conservation areas are now specifying the Liniar uPVC flush sash window; not only for its beautiful lines but also for its energy saving thermal properties, with uPVC offering ongoing heating bill reductions.

Low maintenance

Foiled finishes can be guaranteed for up to 10 years – without the need to repaint or stain them each year to keep them looking their best. A wipe with soapy water once in a while is all that’s needed, keeping uPVC windows looking great for longer with minimal maintenance.

Bi-folding door options

The must-have door type for opening up your home to the outdoors, a bi-fold adds a touch of luxury to any property. Early generations of uPVC bi-fold proved to be inadequate in many cases, due to their instability and poor quality.  Liniar re-wrote the rules and started from scratch, designing a fully matching uPVC bi-folding door system with none of the issues associated with competitors’ products.

uPVC bi-folds with a difference

Liniar’s ModLok™ bi-fold is the only system to offer a patented aluminium exo-skeleton with a built-in locking mechanism. This not only adds unparalleled strength to the uPVC bi-folding doors, but ensures they meet the strictest security legislation, with ModLok™ bi-folds benefitting from both PAS:24 and Secured by Design accreditation.

In addition to being cycle-tested to more than 127,000 full opening cycles, ModLok™ bi-folds also offer U-values as low as 1.0 W/m²K and can be made to 2.15m high and 6m wide.

Aluminium bi-folds to match

Liniar recognised that some developments require even larger bi-folds, however – so the Alumina range of pure aluminium bi-folding doors has been developed to address this need. Alumina has been designed in-house by Liniar to fully match its window system, spanning up to 2.5m wide and 6.5m high.

Also PAS:24 and Secured by Design accredited, Alumina’s patented locking mechanism is made from polyamide to provide a thermal break – resulting in U-values as low as 1.2 W/m²K. See alumina.liniar.co.uk for more information about Alumina bi-folds.

Mix and match

As Alumina has been designed with the same sleek, sculptured lines as the Liniar window system, it will match perfectly with uPVC windows – unlike any other bi-folding door on the market.

In addition, Alumina is uniquely available in a choice of foiled finishes. This means you can select everything else on the build in foiled uPVC, saving valuable costs, both within the project budget and ongoing through energy savings.

How about Irish Oak woodgrain-effect windows, with a matching Irish Oak bi-folding door – the former in uPVC and the latter made from aluminium?

The finishing touch

Roofline products such as fascias and soffits can also now be provided in uPVC with a range of foiled finishes, ensuring everything on your home will match perfectly.

Liniar’s range has added benefits to other uPVC roofline products; at 20mm thick, instead of the customary 16mm, Liniar’s fascia boards provide greater strength. Longer return legs and extra cover on mouldings also assist fitting, and pre-marked and lined protective tape makes it easy to find the centre line for the rafter end.

Landscaping and retention

If your project is built on sloping ground, or near water, you may be interested to discover Liniar’s range of piling and retention products. Log pile in particular is ideal for landscaping, featuring an attractive timber composite finish with no maintenance required. Made from recycled uPVC, Liniar piling is used extensively in environmental projects, bank and slope stabilisation and flood prevention amongst other applications.

Garden decking and fencing

Adding the finishing touch to your garden can also be low maintenance with Liniar’s decking, balustrade and fencing systems. By choosing from the same factory-fitted foiled finishes, you can extend the matching theme into your garden for low maintenance summer entertaining.

Liniar decking is available in kit format and can be supplied through a Liniar fabricator with your windows, doors and roofs – find out more at liniar.co.uk/decking-kits.

Liniar fencing is surprisingly strong, comprising posts and panels with a variety of finishing touches. Panels can also be interchanged with existing posts if necessary – see liniar.co.uk/fencing for more information.
