Windows and Doors Design

Here at Extal we bring innovation and craftsmanship in to creating all our aluminum windows and doors. Below you will find a large selection of design preferences and window types.

Japanese Design

A window is a structural form inside the room that interrupts the view. With the Japanese design the window structure is practically invisible. The outside view is unbroken and there is no internal frame. The Japanese system is a revolution in window design. It removes all disturding structural elements and allows glass to be what it should be: transparent. The Japanese door makes a strong architectonic statement by inhancing the impact of the external landscape, thus creating new opportunities in architecture. This design is uniquely suited for luxury villas and homes.

Belgian Design

Windows and doors from the Belgian design system are characterized by narrow indented profiles reminicsent of ironwork from the beginning of the 20th century. Usually this type of window or door is painted and finished in a metallic grain to give it it's unique vintage iron look. To compliment this design antique style handles can be used to complete the olden appearance. The windows and doors are broken-up into divisions by the use of either vertical mullions or horizontal transoms to give them a rustic appearance.

Minimalist Design

The minimalist design has simplistic profiles which are slim and smooth. The modern architectural design philosophy behind this window dictates a minimal profile presence whilst maximising the glass area to create a unique and revolutionary dialogue between the inside and outside spaces. The minimalist design is most suited for modern, no frills accessories, such as plain yet elegant handles, discreet screens and shutters. This particular design is suited mainly for small to medium sized openings. Typically used in apartment complexes and private homes.

Urban Design

Initially concieved for industrial and commercial applications, it's imposing presence makes a powerful and dramitic design statement. It is characterized by bold and striking profiles yet at the same time are smooth and streamlined in appearance. This contempary design is gaining popularity for use in private homes, especially where a solution is needed for an opening the size of a complete wall. This series incorporates a unique lift and slide mechanism for closing and sealing the doors. Its robust nature allows it to support single unit door weights of up to 400fg. Precision engineered tracks allow for smooth uninterrupted sliding.

Classic Design

This design comprimises the basic aluminium window and door frames that have been in use for more than fifteen years throughout the world. These profiles are relatively thick, designed with straight lines and joint corners at a 90 degree angle.  These windows and doors have a standard appearance and would be found typically in the construction of appartment buildings and office blocks. In private homes  they will mostly be found in bathrooms or laundary rooms.
