Stylish windows prove to be the ‘Rationel’ choice

Contractor Jamie Hall Joinery built this new home with Rationel windows from ADW for Mark and Jenny Sykes

DANISH-designed doors and windows are set to be shown off at an open weekend in Aberdeenshire.

Rationel has launched a new window and door range – Rationel FORMA and Rationel FORMA PLUS. The firm said the range has been designed to suit “more classical” architectural designs and refurbishment of older properties.    

Rationel designs and manufactures timber and alu-clad timber windows and doors for the European market. Their products are marketed as featuring slim frames, contemporary ironmongery and energy efficiency and security benefits.

Graham Meldrum, director of Rationel’s Scottish distributors ADW said, “Windows not only bring light into your home, but the insulating properties of a Danish-designed product contribute to the insulation in a property, and protect the environment.”

ADW is set to host an open weekend at their Aberdeenshire Showroom at Sauchen on April 20 and 21.

“The glazing units in our windows are much more insulating than the frame, so the bigger the unit the more insulation it provides to a home.  Triple glazing takes these benefits even further, and support projects aiming to achieve Passivhaus standards. Add aluminium cladding to the timber and you can extend the life of the product beyond a staggering 80 years and reduce maintenance.

“Our innovation centre in Denmark combines the best Danish research and development with the knowledge and feedback we get from our clients, architects, distributors, and the home owner,” said Rationel’s UK managing director Phil Marris.  “We use this intelligence to design new products with the same high quality workmanship in timber crafted windows and market-leading energy performance characteristics in the rest of our ranges.”

Window and door products are available in a range of colour and style choices.

Rationel is part of the VKR Holding Group.
