VEKA has long been renowned for a high quality, extensive range of products.

Following the system supplier's acquisition

of Bowater Building Products last year, VEKA's Commercial Team is delighted to be able to offer architects and specifiers even more when it comes to products and service.

VEKA's Commercial Team can now take to the road with an arsenal of new products, providing innovative solutions that meet the current agenda for sustainability.

This comprehensive commercial range includes VEKA's Infinity recycled profile system, Bowater Architectural's System10 Aluminium window and curtain-walling systems, double rebate composite doors

from Bowater Doors and Halo's System 10 SmartSash Window.

VEKA Sales and Marketing Director Colin

Torley explains: “Here at VEKA, we strive to provide the most sustainable and highly 'specifiable' products in the industry and our commercial team is now armed with a range that would suit any project and meet the most demanding standards of sustainability.

“The profiles in VEKA's fully-integrated Infinity system each contain up to 80% recycled PVC-U. Infinity takes less than a quarter of the natural resources and has only a third the carbon footprint of conventional PVC-U. As brands of the wider VEKA Group, Bowater Architectural and Halo allow

us to offer products such as the System10 Aluminium window and curtain-walling system which have a chic, aluminium finish, but outperform this conventional material thanks to an energy-efficient, multi-chamber thermal break.”

lasting beauty and architectural distinction that aluminium clad windows offer, through its Eagle collection. Offering the best of both worlds, Eagle Windows provide the warmth and character of timber internally, while their exterior provides a finish with superior resistance to weather, abrasion and impact.
