• Winblok®
    the total window system
    Silicone-glazed, no mechanical fixing required
    Cost effective compared to traditional methods
    Load-bearing & easy to build

Still one of the best ways to do windows.

Winblok® gives an architect great freedom in managing natural light and ventilation.
Visually creating functional linkages between interior to exterior with textural effects, all within a load-bearing system.

Cost Effective

Analysis by independent Quantity Surveyors’ confirms that Winblok® is a sound choice, where product quality, cost, installation, and other factors are considered, and where optimum ratios for ventilation and lighting are applied in building design.

Simple Buildability

Winblok® is built into walls as part of the continuous brick or block work. No need for additional sills and plastered reveals. No lintels required under normal loading circumstances. Our Winvent® range is easily installed with SPM40SG sealant, requiring no skilled labour.

Interior Climate Control

The depth of Winblok® provides a means to manage and optimise direct and reflected sunlight. Winblok® has relatively low U and SHGC values which are available per application.

Winblok® is a complete system.

Winblok® is always supplied as a complete architectural system, including the precast concrete windows surrounds and the Winvent® glazing inserts in the options available as one complete system.

This system has been painstakingly designed, tested and approved and is a comprehensive Total Window Solution. Therefore specifying or pricing this system should always include the Winblok® surround plus the Winvent® insert. This is to ensure that the system will function correctly for many years and perform exactly as it has been specifed by the architect, which in turn guarantees that the client is getting only the very best Winblok® solution for their project.

Winvent® = 50% More Light!

Winvent® is designed as an integral part of the Winblok® and Winslot® systems that we are able to back by technical support service including National Building regulations and thermal performance certificates.

The relatively small aperture size in a Winblok® required that width in elevation of the Winvent ® frame be reduced to a minimum. This was achieved by designing a section that borrowed its structural strength from the adjacent concrete (in the case of the frame) section and the adjacent glazing (in the case of the sash) by introducing, back in 1985, the new concept of structural silicone bonding forglazing and concrete.

This technology allowed the Winvent® System to be bonded directly into the Winblok® System without mechanical fixing and resulted in a width of only 35mm as against 65mm of conventional aluminium glazing systems.

Winblok® = Winblock

Winblok® is a registered trademark. Back in 1983 our founder, Al Stratford, gave this innovative and unique window system an appropriately unique name. However, sometimes the Winblok® system is incorrectly spelled Winblock (with 'ck' at the end, instead of just the 'k') by mistake.

So just in case, we thought we better clear that up. There's only one original award-winning Winblok® System around, so we're pretty sure the folks typing 'Winblock' into a Google search are, for the most part, looking for Winblok® The Total Window System.

Winblok® is available throughout South Africa including Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and East London.
