PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Two-part cill added » » SPECTUS WINDOW Systems has recently introduced the new universal two-part cill to its product portfolio. The two-part cill means that window cills are now installed in a simple two step process. Firstly, the cill receiver is fitted during the construction process and secondly the cill nose is clipped on upon project completion. Carmen Velilla, Spectus’ Brand Manager commented: “The two-part cill is a product that demonstrates how such a small change can make such a big difference. Its intelligent design eliminates the perennial problem of damage to the cill nose during transit or during the construction process which is great news for both the fabricator and installer.” The two-part cill was showcased by Epwin Window Systems at this year’s FIT Show and feedback from customers was very positive. Carmen said, “Our customers welcomed the simplicity of the product and the value it offers. It’s another great addition to Spectus’ product portfolio.” The new Spectus two-part cill comes with a choice of cill noses and is available in all the 28 colours in the Spectrum colour range. It is compatible with both their Elite 70 and Elite 63 systems.

GLOWING ENDORSEMENT FROM NOTED DESIGNER » » ROSEVIEW’S HERITAGE ROSE window has received a glowing endorsement from noted interior designer Claire Totman. Claire, who worked in interior design for a decade before starting her own practice in 2016, used the product on a high-end renovation project in Cobham, Surrey. Milwater is a stunning period residential property dating back to the mid-eighteenth century, which today sits in Cobham’s conservation area. Charged with extensively refurbishing the building to restore its former glory, Claire initially saw timber as the only viable option for replacing its existing windows. 40 » DEC 2017 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M “The thought of uPVC is usually enough to make a designer shudder,” Claire comments. “We’ve become so used to seeing poor-quality white plastic windows with chunky frames and stuck on horns over the years that we don’t normally give the material a second thought. “In this instance, I was preparing to order timber windows right up to the last minute – but then I found Roseview, and I was absolutely blown away. “Their high-end uPVC sliding sash windows are specifically designed to closely replicate the original features of a traditional timber sash window. With their ornate run-through horns, welded corner details, Rehau profile and bevelled profile details, they are extremely high quality.”
