Put simply this is the worst company I have ever had the misfortune with which to deal. Over 6 months from placing the order we are still awaiting completion of the job. We had months of delays with the initial supply, with absolutely no communication from Skaala, or the Southern Representative, in fact I am still awaiting a response from the Northern Office!!! When the Windows were finally shipped and initially installed I arrived on site to find that three Windows were incorrect, with the… Read Full Review

SKAALA windows. There is 1 very positive review of these on this site. My experience is completely the opposite. Not because of the quality of the windows because we still don't know that.

I am the only person in the United Kingdom with a quadruple glazing system on all windows of my detached house. I imported the Alfa GE Skandia windows from Skaala, which is a window system that won all awards in Finland and with tested noise reduction properties at about 40 dBA across the spectrum of noise frequencies. It also offers < 0.8 Watts/m3 C insulation against the cold which is to Siberian standards. They consist of two double glazing windows separated by a gap of say of 100 mm to 150 mm (your choice) and all already assembled into a type of box the size of your window. That sort of system was originally developed in Germany and called the Kastenfenster (box window), you see it sometimes in movies such as in the first scene of "The Reader". The outside is aluminium but the inside is wood. The arrangement adopted in Scandinavia is an evolution from the Berliner/Viena Kastenfenster rather than the Hamburg/Salzburg Kastenfenster in that both windows open fully inwards (in the latter the inner window opens in and the outer out alla Anglais).
I installed them just prior to last Christmas and it was fortunate because the winters have become very cold here in the UK. When you import these windows you… Read Full Review
