Every year it, work becomes crazy busy as orders increase, and time runs out. here is a photo I’ve taken this morning giving an idea how little room we have to move at the moment in the factory.
A few random photos of things going on.
Yesterday i had to empty the sawdust bins, which had completely overflowed.
If you have never cleaned up massive piles of sawdust, I suggest you try it just so you know you should avoid it.
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.
Yesterday i took this photo of a jobsite we are working on. The Client is not yet ready for the glass panels to be installed. Clear anodise commercial framing. Awnings on top of the windows.
Here are some photos of some arched windows we recently made. Lots of labour in these, but the end result is a work of art.
We were asked to assess a damaged Bifold that had its active panel ripped off in a windy storm.
The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.
Well we have come back (the 9th for George and I with the rest of the staff fully back on january 23rd 2017). I’ve been a little slack in uploading new images of what we have been doing so today here are a few random images of what has been going on the past few months.
A small selection of the variety of work we have carried out recently. Ill try make a better effort and post more frequently.
regards Peter @ THE WINDOW MAN
Nothing fancy here, but here are 11 doorframes off to a building site. each is 3000 high with small hi lites and no sills. To suit 2700 high doors.
Doorframes are made here on an almost daily basis, and though unexciting compared to some of our other work, is a staple of what we do here at THE WINDOW MAN.
Need a doorframe? whether standard or unusual sizes, contact us for a quote.
