Information about Rationel windows and doors
For nearly 70 years, the Rationel brand is at the forefront of hybrid windows and is now an international brand. High-end doors and windows giving the very best in design and in particular thermal performance. Hybrid refers to a combination of materials or functionality.
First of all, is the exterior of Rationel products. Aluminium on the outside provides all the benefits of colour, protection and low maintenance. Rationel windows and doors come as standard with marine-grade aluminium, featuring a thicker paint finish than standard aluminium profiles. Of course, you get the same substantial colour range synonymous with aluminium.
The main benefit of having aluminium on the outside of a predominantly wood window is significant life expectancy over general timber doors and windows. Timber doors and windows today, do come with all the paint technology and long lifespan, but externally they are more prone to the elements. Moreover, should a timber window get damaged, early repair is recommended to ensure there’s no rotting or deterioration.
On the inside is real wood. There’s no better window material for the home, that’s warm to the touch. Even better with wood is the solid nature of the timber. As a result, thermal insulation is outstanding as are window U-Values.
Above all, Rationel windows and doors come with all the security, weather protection and insulation expected of modern glazing for the home. Significant testing of these windows includes independent certification to the latest security and weather protection standards.
AURAPLUS comes with external aluminium cladding, which easily adds another 20+ years to its life expectancy, with all the benefits of natural wood on the inside. In addition, you can add dual colour with no extra charge, adding versatility to your home style, combined with very minimal external maintenance.
