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.
meranti frames ready for delivery
We dont always install the frames we make. This load is being delivered so a builder can install them. glass to arrive when they are ready.
A few doors are being finished today, take a look;
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.
Every year it, work becomes crazy busy as orders increase, and time runs out. here is a photo I’ve taken this morning giving an idea how little room we have to move at the moment in the factory.
Today we went on site to glaze some windows we had manufactured earlier.
all western red cedar, and in the pics below you can see corner window with silicon join glass.
A few random photos of things going on.
Yesterday i had to empty the sawdust bins, which had completely overflowed.
If you have never cleaned up massive piles of sawdust, I suggest you try it just so you know you should avoid it.
Cleaning out the sawdust extractor after one of our bins overfilled. aaaaah sawdust, it gets everywhere.
Making new timber sashes based on the old ones given to us. A common issue for timber sashes is they rot in the rain over the years, you cant repair them – you need new ones!
