Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier.  It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.

8.76 observa glass

this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.

Meranti window install

Finished Product, Work in progress

This morning we removed an old rotten window at a rugby club. The original was a 4 panel awning window (so it could wind out), but the client wanted fixed panels instead.

WE reduced it 2 panel fixed lite.  None of the sashes could be opened at this point – all had swollen from moisture and had sealed themselves shut.

Original Window. THe Right most panel has the glass ready to fall out as the bottom of the sash is comopletly rotten and sagging.

THe sashes have been removed and the mullions cut to then allow the rest of the perimeter frame to come out.

New frame in. Very tight working conditions on the inside.

Finito. Notice the bottom sill tiles have come away (they were resting on original frame). The Builder has a tiler organised to re-cement back in the correct angle. Our work is complete.

Last week we pulled out the old rotten windows in a lovely sun room. the floor was hand made parquetry, truly time-consuming to make.

We replaced the frames with new cedar frames. This time with no colonial bars, and increased the glass from 3mm float, to 6.38 clear comfort plus Low-E glass.

OAK doorframe for a church

Work in progress

My entire last week was spent on a first floor of a hall installing 16 bronze anodise sliding windows.  It was a challenge (4 of us there all week) but in terms of photos, pretty boring.  But this was being made at the factory by my timber lads and when i returned to work I had to photo this and share it.

Solid Oak. roughly 2900 high x 3000 wide. We are making a pair of doors (again solid oak) which when we install the frame will be hung on pivots.

The fixed panels on the sides will be adorned with crosses and other ikons for the church.
