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.
We made some commercial aluminium windows and bifolds for a client.
They installed the windows, but asked us to come down and install the bifolds properly.
So Here are 2 photos of the bifolds i installed this morning.
manufactured and installed by THE WINDOW MAN
We will glaze the frames at a later date – double glazed units.
I’ve been pretty slack posting new bits n pieces up.
too much to do!
Installed this window yesterday, very pleased as we managed to remove the old glass panes from the old sashes, and re-use them in the new window.
The day before we did this – a cedar sliding door and window. up in a horse farm. the view was lovely.
and earler on in the week we finished off some vent locks and 1 window for a job we had done a few months prior
This morning, we had 3 bifolds up and screwed in by 9:30am.
I’ve come back to the factory to relax and do this post, whilst the lads struggle on and do the finishing touches. Monday we glaze them.
Yesterday i took this photo of a jobsite we are working on. The Client is not yet ready for the glass panels to be installed. Clear anodise commercial framing. Awnings on top of the windows.
We were asked to assess a damaged Bifold that had its active panel ripped off in a windy storm.
The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.
Well we have come back (the 9th for George and I with the rest of the staff fully back on january 23rd 2017). I’ve been a little slack in uploading new images of what we have been doing so today here are a few random images of what has been going on the past few months.
A small selection of the variety of work we have carried out recently. Ill try make a better effort and post more frequently.

Nothing fancy, but a very common type of sliding door we make;
this one is 2100 high x 1800 wide (pretty standard sizing). Clear laminate glass and a flydoor. Assembled and tested in our steel jig to ensure squareness and smooth operation.
Probably the most common sliding door we make.
Chinese products are changing the building landscape here in Australia.
Some of the products are world class, and superb. the vast majority isnt.
A builder brought in some aluminium awning sashes he got from China. I am not sure they are even legal.
When you are building or renovating a house, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.
