Velfac - Donna Muir
What My Company Does
VELFAC is the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance composite glazing-windows, doors and patio doors which are constructed using aluminium externally and pine internally. Many self-builders recognise the benefits of aluminium frames but are not so keen on the ‘commercial’ finish it can deliver internally. VELFAC frames offer the best of both worlds: hard wearing, durable, external aluminium, with a timber internal frame to add character to a room. A VELFAC window also won’t need repainting for the lifetime of the installation, which could be up to 60 years.
What will I be doing at the October Show
I’ll be on our stand with my team of Window experts to meet new – and old - customers, to explain the benefits of the VELFAC system and explain how it can be installed in projects of every size; from a simple extension to a ‘Grand Design’ new build home. Visitors right at the start of their project can get some ideas and inspiration, the show is a great opportunity to see our products, feel the quality of the frame, and to look at different finishes and accessories. For self-builders a little further on with their plans, we can provide technical advice on aspects such as thermal performance, giving them the information needed to complete the window specification process.
Why should people visit the Show?
The NSBRC Show is a great opportunity to see products ‘in the flesh’, which is very important when looking for windows. They are such an important part of a building project, the right windows will have a major impact on energy consumption, levels of natural light, acoustic control, and safety and security. At the show, you can talk to a range of different experts about your plans, from architects to installers and – of course – window manufacturers. It’s important to gather as much information as you can before making any decisions, and the show is one of the best places to do that under one roof.
A few Interesting Facts about my company
VELFAC is part of the VELUX Group – so if you’ve seen a VELUX roof window you’ve seen a composite frame, as both products feature the same construction. VELUX started selling roof windows in the 1920s and VELFAC followed shortly after, so we’ve been in the market for a long time. VELFAC UK is based in Kettering, but our international HQ is in Denmark and our windows reflect our Scandinavian heritage – contemporary style, practical design, a respect for the environment, and an emphasis on fresh air and natural light.
