The Block’s on Fire!

Are you a Blockoholic? If the answer is yes then you will know that Season 8 is arguably the most ambitious project ever. In Kingsland, four teams and an army of tradies are transforming a charming 1930’s Georgian firehouse into multimillion dollar apartments.

At Altus Windows we’re proud to continue our sponsorship of The Block, which this year has us installing the Altus Atlantic high performance system in all four apartments. Chosen for its wide range, it’s strength in exposed weather conditions and strong contemporary profile, the Atlantic high performance windows and doors perfectly complement the Firehouse’s industrial architecture.

Providing high end elegance, Sophia and Mikaere’s Penthouse maximises the wide vistas; a Waitakere ranges view from the north west facing bedrooms’ 2.2m high Sliding Doors, around to Eden Park and further south & east from the living spaces’ Euro Sliding Stacker doors, all using the Altus Atlantic high performance system.

Complementing the edgy design of the boys, Ethan and Sam in Apartment 3, the massive 5.8m wide Euro Stacker Slider doors open onto a deck designed to optimise natural light and space. All the apartments include Altus LevelStep® sills, a must have in new builds and renovations. The flush sills enhance indoor-outdoor flow, creating additional space for entertaining and where space is limited in urban homes, this is a great idea.


The Block NZ for 2018 was another season of highs and lows, but at the end of it all - some spectacular homes emerged.

As we look back at our involvement with the show over the last 7 years, from the very first season through to today, we see 'The Block NZ' TV series has been a fantastic catalyst to showcase many of our new and innovative products.

The Block NZ On Point 2018, was another great year for their partnership with Altus Windows. This year came with a challenge, as the facades of the projects were already up when the teams arrived. The focus this year was much more on the inside.

Altus Windows grabbed this unique opportunity with both hands, to showcase two of our vast range of Aluminium products. The Stellar Door featured as the Entrance Door of choice for all the four homes. We helped create the bold and beautiful first impression for our teams. The HighbrookLouvre was a prominent design feature for the outsides of all the Block homes.
