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.

Bay Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Yesterday myself, Tom and Andrew installed this bay window (and another double window which ill add photos later).  The original window was rotting away and falling apart.  White cathedral glass on top colonial sashes, clear laminate on bottom panels. Sides are fixed/dummy sashes with the middle panel able to be lifted up (screens not in photo but sit on outside.)

Aluminium install

This morning we removed 2 rotten timber framed louvre windows and replaced them with our aluminium residential sliding windows.  Flange and angle to finish, with some timber beading to go on the inside. i left the lads to finish the job once we had the larger one screwed in.  The owner was pretty happy and has asked us to quote for more along the side of the house.

Well late december on the very last job for the year i managed to cut my hand (snapped razer blade).  An operation, a cast and some nerve damage was my end of year.  However i am mostly mended and we have been back at TWM since early Jan. Although we make aluminium, it is the timber side which is very busy at the moment.

Some of this work is headed for rural SA, and into Victoria.  As the years go by we are finding that we are doing more work for interstate clients as well.
