Nuview’s representatives, unless advised otherwise, will recommend domestic, semi-commercial or commercial framing depending on: your specification, your requirements, the location, the outside elements such as high wind and the usage. The framing terminology is based on the size and thickness of the frame and whether it will support the window and door configuration and what type of glass is specified.
Investing the time into this part of your window & door research will provide you with the best options and eliminate concerns in the future.
Types of Frame Finishes
This is an application of pigmented powder that once heated becomes a solid and tough coating that adheres to the surface of aluminium. Powder Coating is a popular option due to the fact it can be made in a multitude of colours and textures. For many windows and doors there are several standard colours see opposite but if you have a unique project and want to stand out from the rest simply get creative and to assist with your choice most of the Dulux or ColorBond colours can be created for Powder Coating.
This application is an electro-chemical treatment of the aluminium which results in the formation of a hard and durable outer-layer which is perfect in a project where the natural beauty of aluminium is allowed to shine through. Matt Anodising is a popular choice for most projects but a Bright Anodise can assist where highlighting a feature is required.
