Project Description

Reynaers’ aluminium fenestration achieves maximum comfort and safety for new London homes


Nestled in the exciting King’s Cross district of London, Onyx Apartments provides residents with the best of everything: comfort, location, unmatched views and an array of restaurants, shops, parks and galleries. Working closely with developer Taylor Wimpey, contractor United Living and Cross Border partner Skonto Plan, Reynaers has ensured residents receive the highest level of thermal insulation and safety.


Reynaers’ CP 155 ‘Lift and Slide’ (LS) aluminium door combines high levels of thermal insulation with excellent daylighting

Onyx Apartments is an 11-storey building comprising 117 bespoke homes with one, two and three bedroom options. Comfort and safety were two top priorities in bringing this project to life and Reynaers was brought on board to achieve those aims.

Reynaers’ CS 86 ‘High Insulated’ (HI) aluminium window is one of the most energy-efficient units on the market

The CS 86 ‘High Insulated’ (HI) aluminium window was specified, as it provides an overall insulation value (Uf) of 1.0 W/m²K, making it one of the most energy-efficient windows on the market. RB Glass was also used, an add-on glass balustrade, which provides an additional layer of security without compromising the transparency and design of the windows. To further enhance thermal insulation, Reynaers’ CP 155 ‘Lift and Slide’ (LS) aluminium door was specified to maximise glazed areas while also maintaining comfort.


Commenting on the development, Neil Garner, Reynaers’ International Project Consultant said, “At Reynaers, our mission is to enhance the living and working environment. I believe we achieved that at Onyx Apartments through the comfort and security that our doors and windows offer the new residents.”
