Q72 70mm 2¾" Security Aluminium

Tested to destruction in UKAS approved testing laboratories.

The Q72 system is a high security thermally broken aluminium system. Exceptionally durable, the Q72 can work within any living arrangement or commercial situation, providing the ultimate WOW factor to the aesthetics of any structure.

As security is one of our main concerns when we design a system. The security and integrity of our Q72 system has been tested to destruction in UKAS approved testing laboratories. During these tests our doors were hammered, rammed, pounded, pulled, pushed, lifted and crow barred by forces that equalled a 20 stone man trying to force entry.

This 70mm / 2¾" system offers the modern look coupled with strength, durability and low maintenance. The thermally broken profile provides a efficient product that will help ensure your home stays the right temperature and keeps your heating and cooling bills low.

All systems can be customized with a choice of RAL colours, hardware, thresholds and glazing options. The system can be manufactured in as little as five days using our standard colours, black (RAL 9005 matt), white (RAL 9016 satin) and grey (RAL 7016 matt). Or you can also choose from hundreds of other colours to suit your taste.

A matching range of windows and doors are available.

Powder coating

All of our aluminium products are powder coated which exceeds the current industry standard. There are hundreds of RAL colours that you can choose from.Our powder coatings have a life expectancy of up to 25 years and are maintenance free.To choose your colour accurately and to get a more precise idea of what the colour looks like, it is advised that you obtain a printed RAL colour chart from your local decorators' merchant.

Translucent Wood Coatings & Custom colours

All of our wood products are factory sprayed as standard with the highest quality coatings on the market. Choose a natural stain to enhance your choice of woodgrain or choose any RAL paint reference to match an existing building project or existing windows and doors, or if you prefer left natural, the choice is yours.Our factory spray coatings are applied to the timber in three coats at 250 microns per coat, this is comparable with up to 15 coats of brush-applied paint.Our factory spray coatings are low maintenance and have a very long-life span, up to 10 years before requiring first maintenance.

Our standards are high

Double glazed, insulating glass, 1⅛" / 28mm constructed units fitted with Super Spacer® Bars
4mm toughened LowE glass inside, 18mm cavity and 6mmmm impact glass outside.

Laminated Glass / Impact Glass resists penetration – glass may break but the plastic inner layer retains overall integrity and continues to act as a barrier.

  1. Protects against break-ins by preventing or slowing down burglary attempts.
  2. Withstands repeated blows from heavy objects such as bricks, hammers, crowbars and similar hand held heavy objects. Depending on the extent of the attack, the product remains integral and protects the premises adequately and limits penetration whilst awaiting replacement.

Toughened glass is a safety glass, shatters into small pieces, is about 4 times stronger than standard glass, is resistance to thermal stress and impact resistance. Argon, has a 34% lower thermal conductivity than air.

Bottom Track Options

We manufacture an inline out of sight track system, this track system is strong and secure, and all running gear is concealed (which ever option you choose) and is resistant to attack from potential intruders, we offer both inward and outward opening options. Our flush track option is also water resistant, many other systems do not offer these options.

There are threshold details to suit all applications, some people prefer a step on the inside and outside, some prefer a step on the outside only. But for the many, they prefer flush threshold that blends the inside floor with the outside floor, especially those with children, elderly or someone in a wheel chair.
