here are 4 arched fixed lite windows which I need to take to the glazier to get the glass cut. each one is slightly different based on the template supplied.

cedar arched windows
If you scroll a bit back you might see a raked frame in our factory. here it is now installed (today).
old and new window
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.
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.
OK, this job was to replace damaged windows and doors (fire damage) with new commercial, clear anodise frames.
glass was 6.38 clear laminate, except the 2 larger panes which were a hefty 10.38
original shopfront. hard to see from here but its all been damaged in an internal fire
fire destroyed this rather large building.
Original frames moved out.
the new shopfront being installed in place.
Final result of the job. A few angles / trims/ flashings being made up and then will be installed, but otherwise our job is done.
Im not in the office much lately – too many installs where im needed to give a hand. So here are just a few more photos of some of the things going on around now
Original and new timber flyscreen
Cedar casement windows ready for transport
a small selection of our frames in the factory today. an arch, a sliding door, some doorframes with sidelites etc.
We replaced fixed panels of glass along the full height of a stairwell – both west and east sides were replaced. the glass had been leaking into the stairwell. We replaced the glass, added new aluminium beads and resealed any gaps along the sides of the window.
So its saturday morning for the long weekend (public holiday monday). Today i am loading frames up for a job being shipped to venus bay.
Cedar frames headed to venus bay
glass being shipped seperate.
Yesterday myself, Tom and Andrew installed this bay window (and another double window which ill add photos later). The original window was rotting away and falling apart. White cathedral glass on top colonial sashes, clear laminate on bottom panels. Sides are fixed/dummy sashes with the middle panel able to be lifted up (screens not in photo but sit on outside.)
Cedar bay window
Well i keep getting emails and cold calls saying i need to update my website. yet it seems to be doing ok.
Today i thought id post a couple of photos of our factory floor, a sash i re-beaded this morning and a close up of a lift up window – you get to see the beautiful grain of cedar up close. lucky you.
this sash with grey glass was originally putty glazed. client asked to remove the putty and rebead with custom bevelled beads. much easier to paint.
all the frames stacked up to give some workspace for more.
close up of a single hung lift up window. inside view (you see the sash lift handle) and double glazed. You can see the finish of the cedar timber is very beautiful.
