fire destroyed this rather large building.

Original frames moved out.

Finished Product, Work in progress

Bay Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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.)

Factory full of frames + more

Finished Product, Work in progress

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.

Aluminium install

Uncategorized

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.

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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.

Bifold and commercial frames glazed

Finished Product

I glazed these doors and windows yesterday (plus more not in view).

the bifold panels of glass weigh just over 30kilos each, so the doors stacked to one side is about 150kilos of weight hanging there. which illustrates why you need to install a bifold properly.

the glass is 4mm toughened clear, 16mm argon gap, 4mm toughened clear.

Finished Product, Work in progress

We made some commercial aluminium windows and bifolds for a client.

They installed the windows, but asked us to come down and install the bifolds properly.

So Here are 2 photos of the bifolds i installed this morning.

We will glaze the frames at a later date – double glazed units.
