Following ‘unprecedented interest’ at The FIT Show, Prefix Systems has now formally launched its integrated Opus system of composite windows, doors, lantern and conservatory roofs, as well as a proven ‘warm’ orangery solution.
With a product design that is said to bring together ‘the performance of aluminium and the sheer beauty of hardwood timber in perfect harmony’, Opus represents a complete system of luxury casement windows, along with French, residential and bi-folding doors, and both lantern, conservatory and iX250 orangery roof options.
For architects and those consumers ‘averse to PVC-U as a material’, Prefix claims Opus’ ‘near maintenance-free’ product design will last for many years and can be individually tailored for each project. According to Prefix, there are hundreds of exterior RAL colours to chose from, a range of hardwood finishes to the inside and the latest multipoint locking options, security upgrades and solar control glass are also on offer.
Described as ‘a tactile product that needs to be seen’, Prefix Systems has manufactured a number of sample windows in branded Opus bags, with premium brochures for ‘eager’ installation companies. According to Prefix, the design options in the range are carefully manufactured in the UK by ‘experienced and time-served craftsmen’, adding to the ‘luxury proposition’ that is Opus.
The first few installations have been completed incorporating various window, door and roofing combinations from the system. According to Prefix, all those involved in each respective project have been ‘thrilled’ with the ‘performance and undeniable beauty’ of the products installed. With period inspired greens and contemporary greys likely to be the most popular external finishes, Prefix says Opus is a product ‘equally adaptive to both period inspired properties and more modern homes’.
Chris Baron, co-director of Prefix Systems, commented: “Opus is a luxury brand in every sense of the word and will open up new sales channels for our customers. With the performance of aluminium to the outside and the timeless elegance of hardwood to the interior, we believe that we’ve taken glazed product design to a new level.”
