PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS The Market Stirred with Nemesis » » KENRICK HAS STIMULATED THE market with the launch of a brand new bi- directional twin cam espagnolette window locking system which has been designed specifically for aluminium profiles. The solution – aptly named Nemesis – has been launched to bring a greater variety of locking systems to fabricators operating within the increasingly popular domestic aluminium market. Steve Williams, sales director at Kenrick, explains: “Aluminium is a rapidly growing sector of our industry and the Council for Aluminium Building (CAB) recently reported that the number of installers offering aluminium has risen by more than 40% in the last five years. The industry has been excited by the huge potential out there but frustrated with the lack of choice in hardware.” Nemesis has been developed to suit aluminium profiles which come with or without a Euro groove. A reliable multi- point locking system that benefits from a robust offset handed die-cast gearbox and bi-directional twin cam locking, it delivers the first-rate security features that homeowners expect. Nemesis has been fully tested at Exova BM Trada and is Secured by Design and PAS 24: 2016 accredited. Fabricator goes the extra mile » » YORKSHIRE FABRICATOR DEMPSEY Dyer has gone the extra mile to help a valued customer complete a lucrative job in an Oxfordshire conservation area. Respected local installation firm Windmill Windows had been called on to refurbish a property in a historically sensitive part of the county. Together with the homeowner, the company decided to replace the existing windows with Deceuninck’s heritage flush sash – a high-spec uPVC window system designed to replicate the appearance of timber. However, the project hit a problem. While impressed with the Deceuninck product’s period detailing, Oxfordshire conservation officers rejected it, arguing that its astragal bar was too wide, and not sufficiently timber-like, for use in a conservation area. That’s when Dempsey Dyer, Windmill’s trade supplier, came to the rescue. The fabricator collaborated with astragal bar specialists the Georgian Bar Company to produce a version of the Deceuninck Flush Sash that would meet the strict standards of the Oxfordshire conservation office. Outfitted with a slimmer astragal bar, the products were given the go-ahead. “All conservation areas are different – and products that might satisfy some conservation officers might not convince others,” commented Peter Dyer, Dempsey Dyer Managing Director. ALUMINIUM LIGHTS UP BATH DEVELOPMENT » » AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF aluminium products from REAL Aluminium has brought style and luxury to an exclusive new property development on the edge of Bath. The selection of REAL Aluminium windows, doors and a lantern roof were chosen by Bristol-based installer Panoramic Ltd to complete the £multi-million schemes, which sits south of the River Avon and close to the outstanding Beechen Cliff Boys’ School. The developer – Annexe Ltd of Bath – bought the site and knocked down the bungalow that once stood there to make way for a stunning development. The development consists of four spacious terraced 46 » N OV 2017 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M townhouses in one building and a separate three bedroomed property, which is located close by. Having finalised the designs with his architect, the developer approached Panoramic to supply all the windows and doors for the development. He was impressed with the crisp, clean lines of the REAL Aluminium range and knew that it would deliver the premium, high end finish he wanted. Just as importantly, REAL Aluminium’s characteristic slim sightlines would make the most of the incredible views across the valley from any vantage point.
