An interesting window frame this one. We were given a template to match the curve required. I had the glass cut but not glazed, so they might be able to secure the frame through the glass rebate, then hide with the glazing bead. Will be grey laminate glass.
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…
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).
