PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Sash window solution for seaside private residence » » SOUTHPORT’S Westcliffe Court is a prominent private apartment building built with soft wood sash windows but its seaside location meant the frames needed to be repainted every three or four years – an expensive undertaking for the building’s residents. When the windows’ seals started to fail too, the building’s management company sought an alternative. The local planning department specified that vertical sliding windows with a white woodgrain finish needed to be used and stipulated mechanical mortise- and-tenon joints rather than a welded 45-degree joint. The building’s management company researched alternatives and selected 88 Profile 22 windows and approved installer, Countrywide UPVC in Ormskirk. Countrywide was supported throughout the project by Profile 22’s Specification Manager, who completed all the designs for the windows and attended both residents and planning department meetings, with samples, making a complicated process run as smoothly as possible. Les Moon, Project Leader for Westcliffe Court Management Company and building resident said: “All the residents are absolutely delighted. The windows are extremely pleasing aesthetically and only under very close scrutiny can you tell that they’re not wooden frames. It’s a relief to know that these windows not only look and perform well but will be able to remain in situ with very limited maintenance required for many years to come.” COMPOSITE DOOR OFFERING DOUBLED » » THE GLAZERITE UK GROUP LTD has almost doubled its VEKA/Halo composite door offering, including unveiling a complete range of contemporary styles for the first time, as well as boosting its colour and grain options from eight to 40. ‘even easier for homeowners to turn their vision into reality’ The move gives installers not only many thousands of extra combination choices but also access to the entire style and colour offering of the Doorco range, complete with the full range of 29 colour options for the VEKA or Halo outerframe.
