The Kestrel 60mm aluminium window offers a cost effective, durable and high specification window for schools and other commercial buildings.

Ninety-seven Kestrel Aluminium casement windows, together with a range of thermal and non-thermal commercial door sets were manufactured and installed by Tamworth-based Window and Door Maintenance Services.

The professional window installation was completed on time to meet the contractor and school requirements. A combination of the Kestrel Aluminium Systems highly reliable service to their network of fabricators and a partnership with Window and Door Maintenance services ensured the completion of this next phase on time and by the required installation date.

Kestrel commercial doors offer excellent security, durability and a choice of opening options, including automatic doors.

The Kestrel Aluminium Commercial door is widely specified and established in the market as a reliable, robust and heavy duty commercial door. With schools being high traffic environments, it is necessary to install a commercial door that will withstand the high use of a school.

Kestrel Aluminium Systems’ commercial suite of doors and framing provides a commercial door with a choice of profiles, colours, door furniture and opening options. Kestrel doors when used in a commercial building provide a secure yet comfortable to use entrance door. Kestral aluminium commercial doors have been tested to PAS24 security standard as well as meeting the requirements of BS8300, Approved Document M and the Equality Act when correctly specified.

Superior service to fabricators provided by Kestrel Aluminium Systems.

To help achieve the building schedule, Kestrel worked closely with their manufacturer. Material orders were expertly planned ensuring window and door production was smooth, efficient and consistent. This also helped keep the installation programme on site flowing.

Fabricators benefit from using Kestrel aluminium with a diverse range of window, door, curtain walling and folding door systems. All work with the industry leading Logikal fabrication software. They can also integrate with each other to create bespoke designs whatever the building requirement.

Kestrel Aluminium systems provide colour and creative education.

The windows and doors are coloured with a durable, polyester powder coated finish. For this project, a vibrant green was chosen to contrast with the wood cladding, red aluminium panels and glazing.
