The Residence Collection announces changes

R9 revolutionised the fenestration industry when it was launched five years ago, as an energy efficient, maintenance free alternative to often-costly timber windows.

Last year, the Residence Collection expanded with the launch of the completely flush R7 window, aluminium alternative R2 and R8, with a staff bead. The company also launched a door range, as well as storm sashes.

With the introduction of the new products, and the phenomenal success of R9, some growing pains ensued and the Residence Collection has addressed these by restructuring operationally as well as rationalising the range, in line with trends that they have noticed.

The changes that have been made are as follows:

Simplified handle range

The only handles now available will be Residence Collection’s own Romatopola range - the monkeytail and pear drop handle. The handmade range will no longer be part of the company’s offering.

Changing the colour ranges

The R9 colour options have been cut down to 22 options, rather than the 42 that they had before (twelve of the colours equalled 90% of sales last year, with seven alone making up 70%). Please email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to request the new colour charts. Please click on the relevant product name to view the colour chart. The bespoke service is also no longer available.

R8 and the Storm Sashes are on hold

The R8 window, with its staff bead, won’t be available until further notice. However the staff bead can be used on other windows in the range. All the Residence windows and doors were also available with an overlapping ‘storm’ external option, designed for high altitude areas. These are also ‘on hold’. The Residence Collection has plans to launch these at a later date.

We think these changes will really make a positive change in the next year to drive the Residence Collection forward. And as one of only a handful of Residence Collection fabricators in the UK, we are sure we will see major growth in demand this year.

If you are an installer and want to start selling the Residence Collection, just let us know.


It’s only one week to go until the Homebuilding & Renovating Show 2016 at the Harrogate International Exhibition Centre!

Taking place from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th, we are excited to be showing off our range, including; the Residence Collection of timber alternative windows, a vertical sliding sash window and the Masterdor Craftsman precision engineered timber door.

Come and see us on Stand M218!

Part of the Profine Group, Europe’s leading window and door system supplier, Kömmerling is at the forefront of the PVC market due to its innovative, high quality profile systems, extensive product range and green initiative, which ensures low energy ratings.

It is due to these factors, as well as the company’s reliable and efficient delivery service, that we have been fabricating Kömmerling windows for the past 12 years.

Over the years, we have developed a strong partnership with the market leading company which has helped us to grow our business by providing our customers with high quality products, carefully timed deliveries and an excellent service overall.

We currently fabricate windows in both C70 and O70 profile, as well as manufacturing the PremiLine Pro sliding patio doors. A new addition to our Kommerling offering is the recently launched flat Ivory (RAL 9001) through-colour in C70 which we are offering at the same price, and turnaround (5 working days), as flat white.

We are really excited to be a finalist in the PVC Company 2016 category at the National Fenestration Awards. Please vote for us to win by clicking HERE.

As it gets closer to the Homebuilding & Renovating exhibition in Harrogate next month, we wanted to give you an update on the products that we would be exhibiting there.

Residence Collection

We will have four of the Residence Collection windows on display – Residence 9, Residence 7 and Residence2. The timber alternative selection has risen in popularity in recent times due to its sleek and elegant look, and large range of colour options, whilst being practically maintenance free. 

Vertical Sliding Sash Window

With the authentic appearance of a timber sash window but none of the drawbacks, the Spectus VS is widely regarded as the best PVC sliding sash window on the market. It is available in a wide choice of colours and woodgrain finishes, and is customisable to meet the highest security standards.

WarmCore Windows & Bi-Folding Doors

The newest innovation in aluminium window and bi-folding door technology, WarmCore offers aluminium aesthetics with the thermal performance of PVC. With clean and modern lines, WarmCore creates a look with a refined and understated beauty.

We will be on Stand M218 at the exhibition, which is being held at Harrogate International Exhibition Centre from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th November.
