Bifold and commercial frames glazed

Finished Product

I glazed these doors and windows yesterday (plus more not in view).

the bifold panels of glass weigh just over 30kilos each, so the doors stacked to one side is about 150kilos of weight hanging there. which illustrates why you need to install a bifold properly.

the glass is 4mm toughened clear, 16mm argon gap, 4mm toughened clear.

Bifold install

Finished Product, Work in progress

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

Black aluminium bifolds installed today

We will glaze the frames at a later date – double glazed units.

Cedar and Meranti – difference in grain and colour

Finished Product

I am often asked what meranti and cedar looks like when finished.  Here is a photo. Cedar is on top, and when stained has a really lovely grain come up and through.  Meranti is usually a little redder (but can range in colour tones from near white, to almost yellow) and has a finer, more sinewy grain.  Cedar also varies quite a lot in colour tone, from yellows, reds, and reddy brown.  Cedar is a soft timber and you can easily dent it or push your fingernail into the timber.  Meranti is much harder.

Probably about 70% of our manufactured windows and doors are in cedar, followed by meranti with about 25% and then a very small percentage is a variety of other timbers like oak, blackbutt, kapur, jarrah etc.
