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.
