The £22m Ormiston Horizon Academy opened its doors to over 1000 pupils following a two year project to replace the James Brindley Science College under the Building Schools for the Future programme. Designed and constructed by Balfour Beatty, the purposebuilt accommodation provides exceptional resources for students and the local community in a two-storey, four wing building housing various basic and specialised classrooms. System 4-35Hi+ High Performance thermally enhanced casement windows offer the designer a wide and diverse range of profiles that will provide structural integrity, weather performance, thermal enhancement and security. The Thermal range is designed to aid compliance with the latest thermal requirements of the current building regulations. However in conjunction with the correct glass specification these windows can achieve U values below 1.0W/ m2K. Polyamide thermal break profiles have been specifically designed to minimise heat transfer across the window profiles and work in conjunction with specially designed thermal gaskets and foam profiles. The combination of all these products reduce radiated heat loss across the air cavities and thermal transmittance within the window profiles to provide this high level of thermal enhancement. www.metaltechnology.com Cream profile added to range Total Glass can now offer Cream on White profiles from stock enabling installers to offer a stylish and softer alternative to white PVC-U window and door products. Available on a five-day lead time in casement, tilt & turn and door profiles, the cream woodgrain foiled finish delivers enhanced aesthetics mimicking those of timber windows. Introduced in response to rising customer demand for greater colour choice, Phill Cresswell, Sales 32 JAN 2014 and Marketing Manager at Total Glass, explained their decision followed the major success of the popular Grey on White profile aimed primarily at the commercial sector. “Cream has great consumer appeal and by introducing it to our product portfolio means we can now offer our installers even greater flexibility and accessibility to new selling opportunities,” he said. “As we can also offer this option from stock, our ability to provide a fast turnaround will assist our customers in completing their projects within agreed time schedules,” added Phill. ‘We can now offer our installers even greater flexibility and accessibility’ For more details, contact Total Glass on 0151 549 2339 or visit the website at www.totalglass.com.
