Happy monday to you all. We survived the heat wave (closed the factory a few times early last week). Here is a sliding window we are working on at the moment.
Timber continues to be a supply issue. Hard if not possible to source long lengths of certain timbers. One supplier sent me a pack list of 7 small packs.
I ordered 5 of them and he replied saying 2 had been sold already. Blink and you miss it.
Wood glue supplier has been waiting on his orders since august 21. We have bought the last he has, and will need to use a level up in glue (increase in $$$) instead once our regular glue runs out.
Laminate glass from one of our main suppliers doubled about 2 weeks ago. others have jumped by at least 25%.

Aluminium Awning WindowFinished Product
You will note the website almost always shows off the lovely timber joinery work we do.
We also have do aluminium windows and doors – both residential and commercial grade.
Today a client will pick up their custom sized bathroom awning window with spotswood obscure glass as requested.
Our residential window is 60mm deep, which is a little more deep than a lot of other window frames made which sit around 40-50mm.
You can see the flyscreen sits on top of the winder block so you can wind out the sash and keep the screen in place.
