TWN worked closely with the client and Wymondham based architects, Lucas Hickman Smith, to specify suitable windows for the development.
The original near derelict Georgian farm house had its two ground floor windows lengthened to allow maximum light into the reception room and study – these were fitted with bespoke composite triple-glazed fixed light windows with glazing bars to match the first floor sash windows.
TWN commissioned the three bespoke timber sliding sash windows for the first floor and both sets of windows were finished in the same bespoke heritage style Pebble grey colour, sympathetic to the painted cream exterior.
The side elevation of the farmhouse was fitted with Design Series triple-glazed composite windows finished in the stylish dark grey RAL 7012, to carry through to the new linked ‘barn’ addition.The new two story addition was built to take advantage of the location – on one side an elevated sitting room with 6 metre composite sliding doors opens out onto a balcony with long views over open farmland and the Norfolk broads in the distance.The ground floor open plan kitchen and dining room was fitted with Westcoast Windows composite Lift & Slide doors to open onto the outside patio and garden.The upper floor master bedroom has matching glazing with Tilt & Slide Doors.
The warm wood interior of the composite windows and doors was finished in two different styles, with a white stain effect on the new ‘barn’ addition windows and doors and a Pine lacquer on the period building.
The client was delighted with the Westcoast Windows products, service and fitting provided by Rob and the team at Aluminium Clad Windows by TWN, particularly the triple-glazing which enhances the insulation of the house.
“TWN Ali-Clad made the whole process easy for us and delivered a fabulous result to the house”.
For multi-storey buildings where cleaning and/or reglazing is to be carried out internally.
The concealed projecting reversible hinge allows the sash to be fully reversed with all the action externally so the operation of the sash never interferes with curtains, blinds or internal fitments.
The easy glide mechanism incorporates integral safety restrictors which automatically engage when opening and when in the fully reversed cleaning position. Concealed multipoint espagnolette locking provides superior closing tightness for weatherproofing and acoustic attenuation and offers a secure night ventilation position.
For single storey buildings or high level balcony locations where cleaning can be carried out from within the building and reglazing is to be carried out externally.
The window has a side hung open out action, the sash being hung on a pair of concealed friction hinges. An opening angle of 90° can be achieved to enable external surfaces to be cleaned from within the building (max safe reach 850mm).
Concealed multipoint espagnolette locking provides superior closing tightness for weatherproofing and acoustic attenuation and offers a secure night ventilation position.
For residential access and ventilation purposes at ground floor terrace or upper floor level balcony locations where doors are to be secured from within the building.
Tilt and turn single leaf doors (TBTD) are secured by a concealed multipoint locking espagnolette bolt mechanism via a single key locking handle to engage either the bottom hung function (ventilation position) or when unlocked the side hung open in mode.
In the case of pairs of doors (TTDD) the slave leaf has a side hung open in operation only and is secured by espagnolette activated flush bolts.
For residential access purposes at ground floor terrace or upper floor level balcony locations where large openings are required and doors are to be secured principally from within the building.
A simple rotation of the operating handle disengages the sliding leaf from the multipoint locking bolts and at the same time, the mechanism allows the leaves to effortlessly slide into the open position.
