Timberweld - the perfect fit for Prestige

Timberweld joint on Prestige Flush Sash

Beauty and strength in one simple joint

Here at Aztec Windows we were quick to see the potential of Masterframes innovative timberweld™ joint and went about obtaining a licence to use it on the Prestige Collection® flush casements.

The Timberweld™ jointing system is unique, and unlike other butt jointed flush windows it is fitter friendly and strong. Timberweld™ mechanical joints do not require glass bonding to maintain the structural strength of the sash which means that if, for any reason, the glass unit needs replacing, it can be replaced, on site, as quickly as a regular PVCu window by just removing the beads. It also means that the window can be glazed on site by the installer.

The way the joint is constructed gives the sash corners immense strength while keeping the aesthetics of the corner looking like it should. It doesn't use unsightly injection mouldings to block off the open chambers of the PVCu profiles. And while some systems are just screwing the profiles together, which after prolonged everyday use will cause the joints to part, the Timberweld™ joint is sealed using a strong adhesive combined with a unique double chevron bracketing system which is itself screwed into position for additional strength.
