The Ultimate Double Glazing on the Planet – South Lakes Windows Ltd!

No Ordinary UPVC Windows!

Tricept Windows Logo

The first thing to understand about The Tricept Collection is that its products are unlike any other windows, doors, porches and conservatories in terms of their basic construction technology.

Before The Tricept Collection, if you happened to live in a beautifully renovated country cottage, you’d probably have to accept the same window and door frame style as someone who lived in a stylish ultra-modern town house.

That’s because most ordinary frames are manufactured with square, straight edged profiles. They all tend to look very similar. So, too many homes have had to settle for ‘me too’ double glazed windows and doors that lack any real personality.

Tricept Ovolo Frame Design

What The Tricept Collection has done is to take UPVC (PVCu), an innovative frame material, a material that can look and feel as warm and full of character as wood, and shape it into a range of unique, individual window styles.

The Tricept Collection from South Lakes Windows Ltd offers you a whole range of sculptured and chamfered profiles, a complete spectrum capable of complementing, enhancing or transforming everyone’s dream home. (The Tricept collection is an advancement on The Ultimate Collection which came before.)

Colours – It’s Your Choice!

We can paint to any RAL, Farrow & Ball or BS colour so the choice is yours! A world of colours for a world of homes! Below is an example of our standard stock colours.

The Ultimate UPVC Performance!

The Tricept collection from South Lakes Windows Ltd is PVC-u that is crafted to give all the warmth, character and flexibility of a natural wood frame.

But what is even more vital than the ways in which our PVCu double glazed windows and composite doors are similar to wood, are the ways in which it can actually perform better than wood.

Wood rots and decays. It also splinters. It gets damp. It needs painting. It needs year-after-year care and maintenance. Gaps appear. Wooden window frames need replacing or repairing.

The Tricept Collection u-PVC won’t rot. Or fade or ever need painting. Or ever need care apart from a wipe with a damp cloth.

It will stay looking as good as the day it was installed.

On top of this there’s the actual glazing technology…

UPVC Thermal Enhancement

Tricept is engineered from 70mm profile (the industry maximum). The profile is chambered to maximise thermal performance and reduce heat loss through the frame.

Being the same depth as conventional timber frames, the 70mm profile is more likely to butt against existing plaster lines and result in a neater finish.

Hollow metal reinforcing is included as and when specified,to add rigidity and strength.

This new windows and doors frame technology results in far greater heat retention and continues to meet all the requirements achieved by conventional hollow metal frame reinforcing.

Weather Resistance

You should expect your new upvc replacement windows and upvc doors to be completely draught proof and water tight.

New Tricept is produced with all weather compression gaskets, fused to both the inner and outer window frame sections. The gaskets include a 9mm “flipper seal and backing cushion” to ensure ultimate weather resistance and sealed unit stability. The flipper seal remains inline with the profile for a neater appearance and because they are fused to the profile they can never shrink back thus avoiding any window leaks or irritating window draughts in your home. Repairing steamed up windows is a thing of the past with Tricept!

Integral Drainage

To enhance weather resistance further Tricept has a sophisticated “built in” sloping drainage system that directs any water penetration away and towards the external drainage route. Definitely no steamy windows!

Neat UPVC Window Installation

To ensure your new UPV-C replacement windows are fitted neat and square, and to prevent “window bowing” upon installation, two 8mm legs have been added to the brick facing edge of the window profile to provide a solid fixing.

Correct Window Glazing

In order to avoid the breakdown of double glazed units it is essential that your double glazing unit remains in dry conditions at all times.

Tricept have designed a unique glazing packer (1) that is sprung in place for the glazed unit (2) to sit on and therefore create a bridge between the sealed unit and any water or dampness thus preventing steamy condensation forming inside your double glazed windows.

Window Frame Versatility

Whilst all the profiles remain technically the same, Tricept offer you a choice of either a fully bevelled system or fully Ovolo depending on your preference.

Unique in design, the Ovolo “Royale” system features a sculptured style of window offering you softer curved lines that complement every type of home be it terraced, semi-detached, detached, modern or period property.

The bevelled design is a fully chamfered style of window designed to recreate the traditional putty lines of timber profiles. The sleek modern lines will suit any home particularly contemporary designs.

70mm profile (Quicker install)

The window frame profile measures 70mm front to back, to ensure a direct replacement with timber windows with minimal trimming or finishing allowing for a quicker install of your upvc replacement windows.

Clean Lines

Both glazing systems have been designed to be symmetrically correct in that all flat surfaces are similar in width which in essence offers a far slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing appearance to your new window.
