Alum to timber install

Uncategorized

this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.

This is the aluminium window we were to remove. This is to coincide with a kitchen refit inside. note the roof- that actually opens!

Window removed, and the opening exposed. You can see how much silicon on the sides (and head) were used on the alum window.

New Cedar Window. Quads outside, lining and aves on the inside. new kitchen bench will slide right up against the window sill.

Yesterday we removed 3 old aluminium sliding windows which had 3mm float glass, and replaced them with new slightly larger residential framing( depth 60mm) glazed with 6.38 clear laminate glass. Awnings with chain winders and screens.  The result was quite dramatic, with a fair few compliments as people passed by.

3 of us on the first day, and1more morning to just finish some angles on the outside.

Aluminium Awning Window

Finished 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.

Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.

Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here.  Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.

here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.

Here you can see one of the other windows, internal view. Notice the scissor winder hardware. Top panels of glass obtained from the wonderful team at the Glass Emporium, as per clients request.

 

In our factory, we are running up door stiles for assembly. Notice; full timbers (not blocks glued together with a veneer) and mortice + tennon joins. In the background you can see the solid 150×50 EX WRC timber pack which is how it all starts out.
