- KJM supply both the Profile 22 and Veka ranges of PVC profiles.
As an independent windows supplier we have chosen these two profiles to give us a wide range of double glazed windows and doors that suits every situation and provides you, the customer, with the choices you desire.
We tend to use the Veka range for our sliding sash windows and foil options, including the new white foil and Profile 22 for our main supply of casement windows & doors. Our Veka and Profile 22 uPVC products are manufactured in England to the highest of standards. Industry awards for quality have been awarded to them for their double glazing. Veka launched its Infinity range of recycled profiles in 2010, further information can be found here.
Profile 22 uses RCM (recycled composite material) for its internal reinforcements. Manufactured from old first generation post-consumer uPVC windows, the reinforcement range of double glazing windows closes the loop on the recycling process by bringing this waste material back into use in a new generation of products.
In a world that strives to save precious resources, we believe that this is an innovative product that enhances the thermal efficiency of your windows, whilst providing the strength required from internal reinforcements.
