Halo FlushSash proves its worth with self confessed timber installer

Tags: Windows, Halo   |   Added:

Specialist barn and farm buildings renovator Cheshire Barns Homes is committed to using traditional materials in keeping with the projects they typically undertake... but it seems Halo FlushSash has turned their head.

The developer has a strong commitment to producing homes using traditional farm buildings that are energy efficient, a philosophy that is underpinned by the company’s founder and director, Rhys Nevett, who has a vision to restore buildings with heritage to create sustainable luxury, and a desire for absolute perfection.

The traditional style of the properties they renovate must be considered against the requirements of the Building Regulations and desire of the new owners for modern comfort and performance, a balance that can be difficult to achieve. But for one recent project undertaken by Cheshire Barns Homes such potential conflicts were resolved when the firm chose Halo FlushSash PVC-U windows, for a semi-detached property located in a rural location.

Nottingham-based Fearns of Carlton were chosen by the developer to supply eight Halo FlashSash windows produced in Balsalt Grey on white, after being impressed with the authentic appearance of the frames combined with the exceptional performance. The colour was selected from a range of 29 foils available on this highly popular traditionally styled window, with the frames manufactured by Glazerite UK Group at the company’s Peterborough factory.

Rhys Nevett of Cheshire Barns Homes is committed to maintaining the traditional appearance of the properties he renovates and was impressed with the Halo FlushSash windows chosen for this project: “We are usually committed to genuine timber windows but when we saw the Halo window and learned of the energy efficiency that they brought to the project, we had no hesitation in specifying them. They provide an impressive authentic appearance that is in keeping with this project.”

For the window supplier Fearns of Carlton Jak Fearn said: “Many of the projects I work on are with timber sash windows as they are listed buildings. Fortunately as this project wasn’t listed so it gave the developer and us the opportunity to specify the Halo FlushSash. It not only looks great but offers an “A” rating which is fantastic for a traditional property.”

Chris Thompson of Glazerite was delighted: “There is nothing I love more than to get a timber window installer onto PVC-U.  We have also had a number of installations approved and passed by building control in conservation and listed buildings so even if a property is in such an area the installation of windows manufactured in modern materials should not be ruled out.”

Glazerite sister company claims a G-award
The Glazerite UK Group Ltd has applauded fellow fabricators, AluFoldDirect, for their win at this year’s G18 Awards. The aluminium bi-folding doors and windows manufacturer won the Fabricator of the Year award, while Glazerite and fellow Wellingborough-based fabricator, Emplas, were runners up at the event, which took place on Friday 30th November at the Hilton Park Lane, London. Glazerite Managing Director, Jason Thompson, says “Winning the award ourselves in 2017 has been a great morale boost for our employees, and for our profile in the industry.  Although there was no award for us this year, we were thrilled for our sister company, Double R, who claimed the award in the Glass Company category and for our installer, The Window Company (Contracts), who succeeded as Installer of the Year.   “We had a fantastic night and would like to say thank you to the organisers. It’s always a great atmosphere and a good opportunity to catch up with old and new faces from across the industry.” Glazerite cemented their 2017 win with some further extensions to their already comprehensive portfolio, including new styles and colours across their composite doors and the addition of Residence 7 as a third option to their Flush Sash range. The next 12 months will see a major investment plan for Glazerite across its sites, including plant, machinery and factory expansion, in order to further support the growth of its ambitious business plans.

Glazerite's annual Race Night raises smiles for charity
The Glazerite UK Group Ltd’s annual charity Race Evening took place on 16th November, with over 140 guests joining the fabricator for the fun-filled event. Held at the Wolverhampton Racecourse for the third successive year, the evening kicked off with the horseracing, followed by a three-course meal and a disco, all courtesy of VEKA’s leading trade fabricator, Glazerite. Employees from the Wellingborough-based firm welcomed customers and suppliers from the length and breadth of the UK for the annual event, which this year raised nearly £600 for The Lewis Foundation. The charity supplies gift packs for patients undergoing cancer treatment in and around hospitals local to Northamptonshire. Michelle Wright, Glazerite’s Group Marketing Manager, says: “We’ve been supporting The Lewis Foundation for a while. They’re a fantastic charity who have this year given out a staggering 15,000 gift packs to patients. We’re really proud to be able to support them again with our Race Night.” Guest Gary Copp, from Goldseal Conservatories Ltd, says of the event: “The Race Night was the best we’ve attended so far. We’ve worked with Glazerite for many years, installing their industry-leading products and we would like to thank them for a wonderful evening and for the opportunity to support the Lewis Foundation. A good night was had by all!” K2 Aluminium Systems’ Liam Bird and his wife Paula were delighted to meet leading lady jockey, Hayley Turner OBE on the night. Liam says: “Hayley was riding the Queen’s horse, Eightsome Reel, at the meet and it was really interesting to meet her.” Meanwhile, Glazerite’s very own Cassie Macdonald hit a winning streak, thanks to her equine namesake, Castle Hill Cassie, coming first past the post. Jason Thompson, Glazerite’s Director, says: “The event is a great way for us to thank our customers for their continued loyalty. It’s always a great night, and a good opportunity for our customers, staff and suppliers to get together in an informal way. We are also delighted to have raised so much money for the Lewis Foundation at the same time.”
