the product range

In the space of just a few years the Metro Series has become one of the most popular ranges in the New Zealand window industry. Based on a unified and contemporary design approach, the Metro Series offers a comprehensive portfolio of heavy duty windows and doors suitable for residential and architectural applications in a wide range of demanding environments. Metro products are positioned between APL’s mainstream residential suites and the high-performance APL Architectural Series. As such, Metro combines capability and brevity – serious performance with a sleek, compact design. The product range includes sliding, hinged, and bi-fold doors, and awning, casement and sliding windows, all designed to reflect a coordinated aesthetic.

Metro Series windows have the ‘muscle power’ to ensure that large sized formats perform with ease under a wide range of weather conditions. They have been designed for suitability in ‘specific design’ environments where stringent strength requirements apply. But strength and rigidity have not come at the cost of good looks; there is no compromise on aesthetics – all products are notable for their clean, flat surfaces, which are the preference of contemporary designers.

awning & casement windows Opening windows have been designed to sit flush with the outside and inside face of the frame for a smooth, continuous look in the closed position. (Other options are possible, including one which overlaps the frame.) sliding windows For the ultimate in a robust slider the Metro product uses the sliding door frame. Stiffening boxes on interlocker stiles and mullions are flush in the closed position for superior aesthetics. bi-fold windows The Metro bi-fold window is bottom-rolling, with the weight carried on the sill to ensure ease of operation over the long term.

The Metro Series is a great choice for most residential and architectural uses.

sliding doors These have a clean frame design – with an uncluttered sill rebate – offering simplicity of appearance but with no compromise on performance. The bottomrolling sliding doors operate reliably in large sizes, with no danger of lintel sag. hinged & french doors As with sliders, the Metro Series hinged door frame is clean, flat and devoid of decorative slopes and steps. This trim look is carried through to the door rails and stiles. The french door format utilises the hinged door profiles. bi-fold doors The coordinated Metro Series look means that the bi-fold frame and door profiles are almost identical to the hinged door system. In other words, they follow the same smart, straightforward lines. The bi-fold panels are bottom rolling. A layback option is available where the doors fold back against adjoining walls.
