cedar arched windows
For some reason we have had an influx of just timber flyscreens to make up or rewire. Not just one client, but 3 of them, have all asked for many screens in the same day. Here are some in the middle stage of production. frames are made, but no wire/bead.
Timber flyscreens being made
probably will install this frame next week. glass is on hold for delivery to site.
WRC raked frame. Awning sash on the side. Will be glazed on site with 10.38 grey laminate glass.
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.
