Specialist building component supplier, Octaveward, have designed a new “performance” window system, Samson, using a pultruded glass/polyester composite.
Glass composite construction gives the frames strength and impact resistance without the need for metal reinforcement. Frames carry a 35 year warranty and have a projected design life of over 60 years. Proven in the extreme climates of Canada and Scandinavia, the frame material meets the British Standards severe rating for wind and water tightness, thermal conductivity and enhanced security.
Octaveward assert that their Samson frame addresses the need for energy efficiency and sustainability, and meets the latest Building Standards requirement for thermal efficiency.
