Signature’s near passive standard aluminium clad wood windows are perfect for contemporary replacement, new-build, extensions and refurbishment projects that want a next generation window solution.
Innovative Aluminium Clad Wood Windows with Contemporary Slim Profiles
The innovative draining system of the Signature high-performance energy-efficient window contains a water resistant chamber that eliminates water sitting on or getting near the wood parts. The interior wood is detached from the aluminium exterior by a thermal break polymer that provides excellent U-values, water-tightness and protection.
Unlike typical windows, the Signature Windows contemporary range offers very slim profiles and fine lines, which maximises the amount of natural light and provides with a sleek modern appearance. The tight gap between sash and frames gives the window a more refined look and enhances its performance.
Signature’s Contemporary Slim Aluminium Clad Wood Windows can achieve Near Passive Standards at great value, reaching thermal and air-tightness performance that helps reduce energy bills.

Wood is the most traditional building material in the history of mankind with its unrivalled properties: ecology and renewability; outstanding thermal and noise insulation; creating an interior feeling that is warm and welcoming. As a natural insulating material, wood provides thermal and acoustic comfort to the house.
Aluminium is 100% recyclable, exceptionally resistant to weather impact and a convenient material for architects to develop superior design and long life-span windows. It is a modern advanced technology that offers resistance without adding weight to the window. Aluminium also releases you from the duty of painting exterior of the windows regularly.
