Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier.  It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.

this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.

New Wide belt sander + a few odd jobs

Uncategorized

Its the start of a new financial year.

We received our brand new 1300mm wide belt sander last week (just waiting on the custom ducting to rock up). It will allow us to sand wide doors perfectly, whereas our old one was narrower and just a little bit old. This new one has all the bells and whistles.

Last friday we worked in Happy Vally to remove an existing 820wide hinged door and fixed lite window. the old window had 3mm float glass and up in the hills it must be quite cold.  The new is a cedar 3 stacker door with 16mm double glazed units.

Here is a custom cedar window. we reused the hand made glass and leadlight to fit a new window size. custom beading and stop beading.

Square Bay Window removal and install

Finished Product, Work in progress

This is the original window. from afar, it looks OK. however it had been bogged up with putty and car bog to fill in some rot in various joins. the glass is 3mm float. A variety of different timbers were in this old frame; pine, cedar, meranti, and a bit of oak.

glass panels are removed, and in this instance we worked by removing the small side first, adding the new window and then removing the longer side.

The Head of the window was nailed to the overhead beam which had been capped in metal. Great care had to be taken at this stage.

New little window has been placed temporary, whilst the head of the larger window frame is now being moved.

New Window frames now placed in. The Client had painted them prior to us installing/glazing. Glass is a much thicker/safer 6.38 laminate glass.

End result. The client just needs to paint the extra timber panels on corner and top and it will blend in. This install was done in 1 day, with a 2nd day to just add an extra piece of timber on the inside to cover the gap between gyprock and window frame.
