This installation was for a successful house builder customer of ours, Shanly Homes, who build fairly large scale yet luxurious developments across the South of England. We have carried out somewhere in the region of 50 different window and door installations for them to date.
The products we have installed include our uPVC cottage windows like on this case study, our woodgrain foiled uPVC windows and doors and our Smart Visofold 1000 aluminium bifold doors. All of these products are secure up to PAS 24 and the new Document Q. Moreover, like all of our products, they are thermally efficient too, all achieving the required u values.
As is often the case with all of our commercial new build customers, the drawings for this development arrived with us as a pile of tender drawings. We go in and pull out the relevant parts for the external windows and doors and get right to quoting. We make sure everything will comply with fire regulations by including for fire egress hinges and flying mullions where necessary. We also make sure any glass that needs toughening according to building regulations, is indeed toughened. This is any glass that is 800mm or closer to ground level internally or externally and any glass that is in a door or 300mm or closer to a door.
This customer often specifies Georgian inserts on their developments and this was no different. Georgian inserts are the 18mm bars that are situated inside the sealed unit. These can be made in any pattern. In this case, it was to be a grid in the top half of all of the windows. Adding these Georgian inserts into the units makes them more traditional and into what we call our uPVC cottage windows range.
We only have photos of two of the finished builds and will upload more as they come in from the customer. They were over the moon with the installation and our uPVC cottage windows as they are a cost effective way to spruce up a property.
