A NEW Contemporary Squareline Profile with aluminium external fascia, Aluskin is a brand new design concept in the UK.

The Ideal 4000 aluskin is a highly innovative ‘click-and-fit’ aluminium exterior window and door cladding system, offering a true contemporary aluminium exterior, whilst retaining all the warmth and performance from your PVC-U windows and doors. Tested through a range of European standards, this proven technology delivers a contemporary WER A+ rated exterior aluminium finished window, at a highly competitive price-point.

There’s no requirement for PVC-U fabricators to invest in specialist machinery, while fully integrated with the Ideal 4000, stock holding is kept to a minimum.

It also offers fabricators of traditional aluminium systems access to a cost-effective energy efficient alternate system.

Mixing the aluskin exterior aluminium cladding with the extensive coloured foiled collection from aluplast, offers multiple design options for the homeowner.

SquareLine bead and profile design

The bead shape mirrors the shape of the upstand to the glazing rebate to provide a beautiful balanced appearance with contemporary sightlines. The finished window looks identical viewed from inside or outside; simply stunning! While 28mm high performance double glazed sealed units have become the performance standard in the domestic sector, IDEAL 4000 recognises the need for the option of 24mm glazing depth to meet a wider range of window and door specifications for other market sectors. Glazing beads for both 28mm and 24mm sealed units both offer a contemporary SquareLine appearance that perfectly complements the profile detail. Triple glazing can easily be produced utilising either our 36 and 40mm glazing beads.

SquareLine contemporary profiles

IDEAL 4000’s cleverly designed SquareLine contemporary shape makes for simply stunning windows and doors. Beautiful both inside and out with a design focused on symmetry, IDEAL 4000 windows and doors are perfect for replacing the replacements; an important development for the future of the industry. IDEAL 4000 is as easy to fabricate as it is stunning to look at. The positive stops at either extreme of the SquareLine shape give define datum points for modern window fabrication machinery and also make fabrication easier in more basic fabrication environments. IDEAL 4000 combines stunning good looks with ease of fabrication.

Single leg glazing bead

IDEAL 4000 employs a secure single let ‘knock-in’ or j-bead design. The single leg bead makes for faster, easier installation and provides the cleanest glazing platform. Installers love the way the single bead locates and the singles leg format affords both stability and security while also easily accommodating normal glazing tolerances. aluplast’s secure bead system passes Secure by Design and PAS24 with ease.

Co-extruded thermoplastic gaskets

IDEAL 4000’s co-extruded gaskets eliminate the need for the time consuming application of weather seals and gaskets to frames and sashes following the welding process as part of fabrication. The time saved will provide an increase in fabrication efficiency. Using IDEAL 4000 with its co-extruded gaskets will also enable the fabricator to reduce stockholding. IDEAL 4000 innovative gaskets provide outstanding weather performance and complement the profiles’ SquareLine sightlines. Co-extruded gaskets eliminate “the shrinking back” effect typical of old gasket systems and therefore prevent any gaps in corners. IDEAL 4000 windows and doors are also easier to fit.
