Halo System 10 and Future Trade Counter
System 10 is a fully versatile and totally integrated 70mm system with kerb appeal that features a chamfered edge with clean and slim sightlines. It has the added advantage of full compatibility with the Rustique ‘ovolo’ shape system, so you can mix and match between the two.
With a choice of suited single leg beading options to match, which are quick, secure and easy to install on site, and a whole host of other innovative features designed to save you on fitting time – System 10 is designed to perform.
System 10 offers a comprehensive range of window and door styles for the trade, retail, commercial or the new build installer to offer consumers and clients. System 10 can now also offer the SmartSash range of profiles, to further extend thermal and acoustic performance.
  • 70mm profile
    Profile measures 70mm front to back, to ensure a direct replacement with timber windows with minimal trimming or finishing.
  • Choice of bead and glazing options
    Designed to accept 24mm, 28mm 32mm and 36mm sealed units. The profiles can be fitted with a choice of chamfered or ‘ovolo’ shaped features. A secondary weather seal on the beading gives an improved performance.
  • Thermal sleeve insert
    Compatible with our thermal insert (patent applied for) sleeve to achieve a WER A rating with a double glazed unit when applied to the outerframe reinforcement chamber.
  • Product applications
    The System 10 range allows us to manufacture casement windows, french and tilt and turn windows, residential doors, inline patio doors and bi-fold doors within the same trusted product.
  • Material specification
    All System profiles are manufactured from acrylic high impact modified, Polyvinyl Chloride unplasticised compound (PVCu).
  • Chambers
    Five fully enclosed chambers with an increased wall thickness offer additional product strength, rigidity and performance in addition to improved thermal efficiency.
  • Reinforcement chamber
    The additional chamber enables galvanised steel reinforcement to be used for greater strength and rigidity.
  • Single leg bead for quick and easy glazing
    Our single leg beading has a simple ‘knock-in’ design that is fitter friendly and will make glazing on site quick, easy and more positive. The single leg bead provides a performance to BS7950 Security enhancement standards.
  • PCE gasket
    Our PCE low level gasket allows quicker fabrication and installation. The heat bonded gasket means that there is no shrinkage or any risk of the incorrect gasket being fitted. It gives a consistency in quality and finish, which reduces any hard lumps in corners and overcomes any stretching problems. It features a new weather seal flipper and 3.0mm glazing pad for an improved seal.
  • Low level gasket
    Our PCE gaskets are low level, which means they are designed to fit in with the profile so that the maximum glass area is made visible with no unsightly gasket lines.
  • Drainage
    A wider drainage channel allows for a quick draining of any water/ residue built up for an improved performance.
  • Top hat fixings and screw ports
    Hardware and striker keeps are screwed into top hat fixing points and screw ports for an improved technical and enhanced security performance.
  • 10mm overlap
    A 10mm overlap as standard gives an increased weather performance.
Halo System 10 SmartSash

System 10: SmartSash – how low can 'U' go?

SmartSash PVC-U windows and doors can be manufactured with a U-value as low as 0.7W/m2K. This remarkable performance is achieved using a standard 70mm outer frame depth and “off the shelf” glazing, hardware and other components.
SmartSash is undoubtedly one of the most significant developments in window design this century.

No other UK based PVC-U systems manufacturer is able to offer such exceptional thermal performance using standard components.
No other European PVC-U systems manufacturer is able to offer an equivalent thermal performance using a standard 70mm outerframe.
SmartSash is a development of Halo’s market leading System10 PVC-U windows and doors. System10 has been used to great success for over 25 years and is held in high regard by Local Authorities, construction professionals and homeowners alike.

Sound reduction too.

Along with the remarkable thermal insulation performance comes a commensurate reduction in sound transmission. Reductions of up to 50db can be achieved.
