Beaumont & Residence 9 PVC windows

In recent years we have launched the hand-crafted Beaumont window and Residence 9 windows, these can have people fooled that they have timber windows, they are really authentic and a very popular choice.

Profile 22 Logo

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.
