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.
This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
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…

Today we installed a 4panel cedar window with double glazing. note;- if you use instagram we have an account = #thewindowmanSA
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).
Another year is winding down for us at TWM. And what a year it has been for us all.
Just a quick notification we are closing end of today and will (officially) return on the 18th.
If you require a quote, please send us an email with your details (and some photos if you can) and we can get back to you in the new year.
A client asked if i made 3 panel sliding doors. We do. But looking through my pictures, i dont see one on my site. So here is an aluminium sliding door, with 3 panels. One of the fixed panels has a doggy door.
Diamond Grille 007 security door.
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.
Thursday we drove to Edithburg, and worked on 4x windows. stayed overnight and finished it the next day.
