Composite, sometimes called alu clad, windows, doors and curtain walling systems are increasingly specified for multi-storey buildings.

The flexibility and variety of composite systems makes them ideal for multi-use developments. A good example is the project at St George’s Road in the London Borough of Southwark. Here, curtain walling and a combination of windows, balcony doors, frameless sash windows and shop fronts work well in a mixed use application, giving the building envelope a consistent, complementary weather tight solution.

Another major driver in specifying composite building envelopes is the need to minimise ongoing maintenance. Aluminium and timber composite systems are particularly low maintenance, without compromising on aesthetics. Durable, water based timber finishes give a warm and softer feel inside, whilst externally, Hybrid’s advanced power-coated aluminium, in a full range of RAL colours, offers a 25 year warranty
