Last week we went off to remove fire damaged windows and doors at a small series of shops. With the new windows ready we removed the old ones and installed and site glazed the new ones. over 2 days.commercial aluminium, pivot doors with concealed overhead door closers and all laminate glass.
My last little post had a picture of arches being made.
here is the photo of one of the windows being installed.
it went almost perfect today, i had the first window out by 8am, and the new ones fit perfectly with no need to adjust or alter.
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.
This morning we set up 2 bifolds for installation. here is a photo of the work being carried out. I left the lads there to finish the glazing, so its not a finished photo.
Nothing fancy, but a very common type of sliding door we make;
this one is 2100 high x 1800 wide (pretty standard sizing). Clear laminate glass and a flydoor. Assembled and tested in our steel jig to ensure squareness and smooth operation.
Probably the most common sliding door we make.
Chinese products are changing the building landscape here in Australia.
Some of the products are world class, and superb. the vast majority isnt.
A builder brought in some aluminium awning sashes he got from China. I am not sure they are even legal.
When you are building or renovating a house, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.
Unusual glass in this particular window- TAFFETTA Toughened glass.
Another day, another door.
this is 2400 x 920 x 40 solid cedar door with rice paper laminate glass strips. huge 300 wide top and bottom rails.
Here we are installing some commercial fixed frames as well as a doorframe +pair of pivot doors.
All in paperbark, with subsills and laminate glass.
