I call Stellar a ‘showroom product’.: “Most aluminium windows in the market are very ‘me-too’ but the Stellar window is
different The flush detail is impressive, but the standout feature for me is the equal sightlines for opening and non-opening panes without the need to add a dummy sash, which you’d typically find on other aluminium windows.
We’ve installed aluminium windows and doors for many years but Stellar is the first aluminium system we have fitted with knock-in beads. The Stellar knock-in pre-gasketed beads make the job quick, easy and accurate. It eliminates gaskets getting overstretched too, which can often happen on other products. After fitting Stellar, it’s fair to say I won’t be fitting anything else.
Stellar is a superior aluminium window and door system and the slimline, flush aesthetics make it an attractive product to sell to our customers. The low-level gaskets mean the frames look even slimmer, which taps into the trend for big expanses of glass which are so popular at the moment and the flush aesthetics present a straightforward sell. It is a stand-out aluminium product.
We have offered our customers choice between some of the highest branded names in the aluminium game, but they have chosen the Stellar system every time due to its clean, modern aesthetics. This has put us way ahead of the competition and in a crowded market, this is great news for our business and our customers.
We have added Stellar because it’s a visually superior product. The slimline aesthetics and flush appearance are unique to the market. It’s the best- looking aluminium product out there. The knock-in single leg bead means glazing is rapid. It doesn’t have a back wedge so there are time savings here too.
Stellar is an innovative aluminium system. Quite simply, it’s an aluminium system that fits like PVC-U. My background is in retail so I understand first-hand the advantages of products that are quick and easy to fit. Stellar is 30-40% quicker to fit than anything else I’ve seen and it makes an astonishing difference. Feedback about Stellar has been extremely positive so far and I’m not surprised. It represents a massive opportunity for our customers.
Stellar bifold saves about an hour to fit based on a three pane bifold door. Best door I have ever fitted. Because there are no gaskets to install, it’s a much quicker job.
Because the beads are pre-gasketed you don’t have to install a separate gasket which is fiddly and hurts your thumbs – plus the metal gets hot in the summer months which is awkward and horrible job to do. Also the pre-gasketed beads removes gasket shrinkage which is a problem with other aluminium doors.
The superb aesthetics of Stellar completely raise the bar in aluminium system design. First impressions are that it will be quicker and easier to fabricate than other traditional aluminium systems. But more importantly for our customers, it’s an installer’s dream, which is a huge selling point for us.
We have manufactured aluminium products for many years and we were very impressed by the true flush aesthetics of Stellar. What stood out for us is other systems on the market use ‘plant ons’ or adaptors to achieve flush aesthetics which is a popular trend in window design. But Stellar was designed from scratch as a true flush system and along with its slim sightlines and the benefit of its knock-in beads, normally only seen on PVC-U windows, it’s a very appealing system for our customers.The system has been superbly designed to use fewer profiles which helps with our stockholding too.
We are delighted to be adding Stellar to our portfolio because it has outstanding features that will give our customers a competitive advantage. It’s a very impressive system. The fully flush option is exceptional – it allows the system to stand out because there’s nothing else like it on the market. We also value the innovative Reverse Butt Joint – it means no dummy sashes or reverse adaptor profiles are needed, which uses approximately 30% less aluminium and minimises waste. It also increases the glazed area, which adds even more to the products’ aesthetics.
Stellar is the innovative, new aluminium system that sets new standards. It revolutionises aluminium windows with its unique reverse butt joint. It's faster to fabricate, saves materials, and reduces stockholding. It's adaptable, attractive, simple to install, and maintenance requirements are minimal.
