Raising A Chalice To Stellar

The Stellar bi-fold is extremely quick to fit.

The Stellar aluminium system has shown such speed and ease of fitting installers are raising a chalice in celebration of increased productivity - and the opportunity to get to the pub sooner now they are open again.

There are several reasons why Stellar is so easy to fit. It is fully internally glazed and it uses patent-pending knock-in beads which makes glazing rapid. The system has flat rebates so fitting glazing packers is simple and because the frames are flat-backed, it’s simple to position them perfectly.

Installer Darren Young of DP Young Joinery in Stoke-on-Trent summed up the experience of fitting Stellar: “I recently fitted my first Stellar bi-fold door and it was the best bi-fold I’ve ever fitted. I saved loads of time because the beads clipped in and it gave the neatest finish I’ve ever seen, plus the speed of fitting, about an hour quicker than a comparative aluminium bi-fold door, meant we reduced the time spent on site."


 “Maximising productivity will be at the top of installers’ minds at the moment. Stellar was designed from scratch to take aluminium systems to the next level and one of the ways it does this is by being exceptionally easy and quick to fit.”

Powerful proposition

“The ease with which Stellar can be both fabricated and installed is impressive and it’s an element of the system’s design that has never been more important with the industry manufacturing and fitting in the new normal," continues Epwin's Allen. "Combined with the undoubted aesthetic appeal of the system, it makes it a powerful proposition.”


Larger glass area

Allen adds: "Stellar has the slimmest sightlines on the market – it is at least 30% slimmer than the main competing systems, which delivers a 12% larger glass area."

The system comprises a flush door and a bi-fold door along with a flush casement window and a fully flush casement - it is the only aluminium window to offer flush lines inside and out. There is also a bay window,
