probably will install this frame next week. glass is on hold for delivery to site.
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.
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
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
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.
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.)
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 morning we removed 2 rotten timber framed louvre windows and replaced them with our aluminium residential sliding windows. Flange and angle to finish, with some timber beading to go on the inside. i left the lads to finish the job once we had the larger one screwed in. The owner was pretty happy and has asked us to quote for more along the side of the house.
Well late december on the very last job for the year i managed to cut my hand (snapped razer blade). An operation, a cast and some nerve damage was my end of year. However i am mostly mended and we have been back at TWM since early Jan. Although we make aluminium, it is the timber side which is very busy at the moment.
Some of this work is headed for rural SA, and into Victoria. As the years go by we are finding that we are doing more work for interstate clients as well.
