French Window joins home range

Housing Tue, Oct 23, 2018 10:00 AM

Origin, the leading British manufacturer and home brand, is launching its second product of 2018 – the Origin French Window.

Exclusively available on the OW-80 (Premium Window) system, it features a completely unique internal and external flush casement and a floating mullion, which offers homeowners completely unobstructed views.

This means that when homeowners open both the left and right windows, there’s no profile left in the way, therefore providing any property with an effortlessly elegant finish, without relenting on safety. When open, not only does it remove all sightlines, offering unhindered views of the property’s surroundings, but it is also a great choice for windows that need to meet egress requirements.

Ben Brocklesby, Director at Origin, comments: “Innovation is always high on our agenda. We are constantly looking for new ways of improving the gold standard of service we give to our partners, so we are thrilled to introduce another new product into the Origin Home Range. The addition of the French window, and the fact that it completely removes the sightline between both openers, shows the level of confidence we have in our manufacturing processes and the high grade aluminium we use. Our partners can now offer the end user even more, increasing sales opportunities in the process. We are really excited about this product, adding to the bespoke options we have already available on our OW-80 system.”

With energy efficiency increasingly appearing on homeowners’ and homebuyers’ checklists, the Origin French Window can be upgraded with Aerogel, which has the lowest thermal conductivity of any known solid. By using just 10mm of it in the thermal break, it can boost the window’s thermal efficiency by up to 67 percent, deliver a ground-breaking A++ energy rating and result in a certified 0.9 U-Value. The window also combines a polyamide thermal break within the aluminium profile, meaning it not only meets thermal efficiency building regulations, but exceeds them.

The attention to performance is matched by high levels of security, as every window is installed with Yale’s highly dependable Encloser Lock, featuring bi-directional locking technology. The French window makes use of the highest grade stainless steel hinges, capable of carrying heavy loads, exceeding way above the standardised 50,000 cycle test required for residential windows. Hinge guards are also installed as standard, protecting the hinges, as well as stopping intruders.

With security in mind, The Origin French Window is PAS24 accredited and features an espagnolette-style handle. This works in conjunction with Yale’s industry-leading Encloser locking system, ensuring that the system is ultra-secure.

Not only that, it is also available on Origin’s industry-leading ‘Your Lead Time, Not Ours’ promise, which means that the windows can be delivered in as little as 24-hours, from point of ordering through to installation. This unrivalled service is available on all French windows when specified in one of Origin’s most popular colours.

As with all products in the Origin Home Range, the French window is exclusively manufactured in the UK at Origin’s state-of-the-art factory. This allows Origin to maintain the greatest level of control over the process and the unparalleled standards remain in place. An industry-leading guarantee of up to 20-years can be offered as a result, which covers every part that leaves the factory, even the profile, powder-coated finish and weathered seals.

Brocklesby concludes: “We never rest on our laurels at Origin. We reinvest heavily in our R&D; striving to be better and support our partners even further. The introduction of the French window, as well as the Origin Slimline Window earlier in the year, shows our commitment to innovate, helping our partners provide the widest range of high-quality products as possible. We can’t wait to see what the market has to say about our new system.”
