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.
This cedar arched frame was just picked up from the factory. We made this based on an arch template given to us, and working on opening sizes for existing leadlight the client wanted to re-use. Hoping once installed they will send us some finished photos!
Remember = everything we make is of a custom size to suit our customers. We don’t have to work on set/standard sizes.
This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
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).
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.
Just back in the office after this mornings install. Old Casement window had well and truly rotten away. New Cedar Awning window – clear glass, and winder + screen on inside.
Look at how many frames we have in the factory at this one moment. Running out of space.
I thought i had posted this photo a while ago – its on my instagram page.
