Force 8, the Stockport-based REHAU trade fabricator and composite doors specialist, has launched what it believes it the UK’s first round pivot window in the REHAU PVC-U profile system.
Dennis Sumner, Managing Director of Force 8, said that he expects demand to come from both the retail and commercial sectors where the REHAU brand is so strong.
He said: “Round pivot windows add an interesting design feature in domestic properties and are also used extensively as part of commercial design schemes. We believe that they have the potential to create valuable new sales opportunities for installers, particularly in REHAU profile which is so renowned for its quality and ease of installation.”
The new round pivot window is a perfect demonstration of Force 8’s bending expertise, with eight bends in total used to achieve the perfect circle.
The window is completely reversible through 180º which makes it easy to clean when necessary and it has security catches at the top and bottom to ensure the safety and security of users.
Force 8 is offering the REHAU round pivot in diameters from 750mm to 1200mm and in white as standard. It can also supply in Mahogany, Rosewood or Golden Oak wood-grain, or in any one of REHAU’s coloured foiled finishes.
21 of the new REHAU windows have already been manufactured and supplied by Force 8 to Windoworld for installation in a local school in Portsmouth. The company’s bending expertise and efficiency means that all 21 windows were supplied in just two weeks; and the success of the project means that the company is now offering the windows as a standard product with a lead time of just one week.
The round REHAU pivot windows join Force 8’s extensive portfolio of curved, arched, gothic and hexagonal frames, all available on short lead times and to bespoke designs.
