How fast this year has flown by. As deadline to our one and only break looms, we are pushing as much work out as possible. Some random work of what has been going on;
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 new sliding door frame is ready for the glass. We are glazing this with double glazed units.
4mm clear toughened 8mm argon gap 4mm claer toughened.
Builder will install themselves, so we wont get to see the finished result.
Last day of the financial year. I’ve filled the factory as much as possible with timber before our suppliers start upping the price of the raw timbers…
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…
Regards PG @ TWM.
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.
Blackbutt or Ironwood is a very dense hardwood. nearly 900kilos a cubic meter its almost 3x heavier than the cedar we usually work with. Here we have made a corner stacker door system + a standard stacker door. We will install tuesday at mt barker.
