Commercial frames – automated door!

Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…

here we are running up endless strips of stop and parting beads. All cedar in this lot.
A rather large cedar door. We will hang it tomorrow as a cavity slider at a home.
Door and sash rails. Mortice and Tennon cuts exposed almost ready for assembly.
Made these very little custom casement “windows”. Mill finish. Using angles to make a Z shape, and basic sash stock. I believe they will be used in gravestone heads once they are anodised gold. The perspex sheets have a protective film, but are clear once removed. They will add a little lock when they are ready to install.
This we installed a few weeks back. The original window had a tree branch meet it with force.
200×200 Jarrah. Yes indeedy.
OK one of the biggest differences in timber/aluminium windows are colonial bars. In timber each “square” is a seperate panel of glass, and the lines are full timber. In aluminium (usually) the bars are glued onto the one large panel of glass. The bars are siliconed on both sides to give the illusion of seperate pieces.
Glazing some tiny awning cedar windows.
Make something wide and heavy they said.

Aluminium to Cedar Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Yesterday we removed 2 old aluminium sliding windows (the original timber frames were still hidden behind them and also had to be removed).

We kept the internal linings, nosing and aves as they were in good condition and there was no need to replace them. But more care is required when removing the existing frames so as to not damage those internal timbers.

We replaced them with new cedar single hung windows. Dummy side sashes (they dont move). Locks, screen and operated with spiral balances (black tubes that hold the sash up and down – as opposed to weights and pulleys in a box frame window (we we also make).

We are flat out as the year winds down. So much so, i’ve had no time to post our works – even the more interesting ones.  So keep in mind #thewindowmanSA on instagram has more photos as it’s quicker for me to do so.

Wed and Thurs we removed 2 corner timber windows which had extensive water rot.

We did one set each day.

Old and New – shingle house window replacements

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

The original window- sorry i dont know why the picture image failed so badly. The Window was rotten and the top sash glass was ready to drop out the base of the sash.

Yesterday we installed 2 windows. 1 is a fixed frame where we reused the old leadlight.  Pictures speak louder than words;-

New window in, but yet to cap/finish the surrounds
