Everest Windows now trading as Everest 2020 Ltd and is probably the best known home improvement company with their Fit the Best strapline also just familiar. Everest Windows are actually one of the pioneers of aluminium windows dating back to 1965 the company started fitting secondary glazing. It was only in 1984 that PVCu came into their product range. Therefore, we can credit Everest as one of the oldest aluminium brands.
An overview of Everest Windows
Everest Windows has not had the stable trading that Anglian has enjoyed, despite both businesses being very much similar in their trading style and decades in business. The history of this company is of interest from its start to the present day.
The 2020 Pandemic has had a dramatic effect on the company, Everest claims with a negative impact selling doors and windows. This is something not experienced by other home improvement firms. It’s the way Everest and similar businesses, Safestyle, Anglian, Greenspace and larger concerns do business by insisting on the traditional style of selling only with home visits. As a result the company entered a controversial pre-pack administration.
As ever, Everest windows focus on the residential market providing a significant range of home improvements, even stretching to driveways and artificial grass products.
Everest Windows aluminium product range
Considering the company started selling aluminium, this is now not as prominent in the range as their PVCu windows and timber products are also available. However, Everest does have a range of aluminium products covering the basic requirements.
Our understanding is that Everest products today are not their own system but customised versions of existing systems such as Aluk, SAPA/Technal and Smart Systems. The company does make it’s own products where possible.
The aluminium windows range by Everest Windows is marketed as slim, modern, strong and secure. They’re also one of the few aluminium windows companies marketing their products suitable for hardwood subframes.
The company focuses mainly on casement windows and not the tilt and turn, bottom hung or steel look versions. available with other types of residential windows in aluminium.
Sliding patio doors by Everest
The Everest sliding doors range comes as two, three or four panel doors and in a standard choice of profile and handle colours. These doors are very similar to the SAPA Crown product although it’s not confirmed as the same system.
There is no lift and slide, tilt and slide, or slimline version and no higher-end structually bonded slimline model available. Expect with their doors the usual refinements such as thermally insulated frames, several glass options all being toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill.
Everest Bifolding doors
Previous Everest used the SAPA patio door recognisable from its continuous hinge, but this no longer appears to be the case. The pop-out T-handle of the intermediate leaves and the styling appears to now use an Aluk version.
Bifolding doors by Everest don’t offer the personalisation options of brands like Origin however, you do get a standard range of popular colours and four handle colour options all within one style.
For front, side or rear doors, Everest appears to use the same profiles using either full-glass door designs or products utilising horizontal and vertical midrails in a choice of style. Rear and side doors come with midrails and flat or decorative panels.
There doesn’t appear to be a proper aluminium front door model in contemporary or traditional styles.
Their doors are mostly standard residential door design with coupled frames where side or top panels are needed. Front doors are the same product provided with flat or decorative panels.
More information about Everest aluminium doors and windows
Recently Everest has launched another television advertising campaign. A highlight of this is partnering with the trusted Yale brand and marketing a more secure window locking mechanism.
As another large company preferring to focus on booking home visits, it’s difficult to obtain accurate information on their range of products for review.
