We manufactured the double doors and windows frame set (above) in order to provide our customer with a floor-to-ceiling double-glazed area, which floods natural light into the property whilst simultaneously reducing heat loss from within. All of the woodwork was fabricated with Accoya® timber. The glass units are PLANITHERM Total+ – a high-performance glass that is optimised in order to help windows achieve the highest Window Energy Ratings (WERs).
We care about the environment and that is one of the reasons we use Accoya® when manufacturing our products. ‘Accoya is a modified timber which has been through a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology that enables it to resist rot, defy the elements, and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable’. See our video to learn more about Accoya ® and understand why Accoya window frames can be carbon negative over the full life cycle. ‘Accoya is wood without compromise yet one hundred percent environmentally friendly’.
We manufactured new windows for the Village Stores and Post Office in Ampleforth, North Yorkshire. The upper-floor has upgraded sash windows with 14mm Planitherm double-glazed units, spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes fitted to the frames, jambs and meeting rails to minimize heat loss. The ground-floor windows contain the customer’s own artwork. All of the windows were manufactured in the extremely durable Accoya® timber.
Ampleforth Village Store really is a “one stop” shop. Its comprehensive offering includes a post office, news agency, off license, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables.
We recently upgraded and double glazed the sash windows at the above property in North Yorkshire. The new sashes were manufactured in Accoya® and coupled with 18mm Planitherm double-glazed units to improve thermal insulation. The old sash cords and weights were replaced with a modern spiral balance system to offset the additional weight of the 18mm double-glazed units. We also fitted seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to further reduce heat loss.
The windows were painted during the manufacturing process in our own spray-painting facility. Paint is essential to protect new wood and spray painting is cost-effective during manufacture. It makes good economic sense to have windows manufactured, painted, sealed and finished by just one company.
We upgraded and double-glazed the windows at the above Victorian house in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Accoya® timber was used to craft new sashes and frames. We always recommend Accoya® because is a dimensionally stable wood with outstanding durability – and guaranteed for 50 years when used above ground. Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) sealed units were used to double glaze the sashes.
We recently upgraded all the sash windows in the above house at Harrogate, North Yorkshire. We also manufactured and fitted both the external doors. All the woodwork is in Accoya®. The woodwork was painted, prior to installation, during our integrated manufacturing process.
The sash windows contain Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) double-glazed units. Full details of our sash window upgrade package can be found on our sash window upgrades page.
“From the Anvil” ironmongery products complete the package. We think it is important that window and door ironmongery is fully in keeping with the overall level of quality and craftsmanship.
