Breadth of VEKA Range pays off.... five systems in one job

Tags:   |   Added:

Glazerite Windows Ltd were the obvious choice for this unique project which specified five separate door and window systems within one house!

“The job needed casement windows, a black foiled PVC Back door, a patio door, bi-folds and an unusual floor length tilt/turn window to match the bi-folds,” said Andy, of Worksop-based AJ Joinery, “I’ve worked with Glazerite for a few years now so I knew I could get everything from the one place but without them, I might have had to go to two or three just to do the one job.”

The true benefit of being a Network VEKA Approved Installer also shone through, as Andy was even given the original lead completely free from VEKA’s own web-based domestic lead generation system. Glazerite pride themselves on working with our installers throughout the process and in this project were able to show Andy the correct installation procedure for bi-folds, he added: “I’d never done a bi-fold before but they were a big help and I’ll definitely be doing more of them in future.”

 

Altogether, the job entailed a three-pane Imagine bi-fold, two-pane patio doors, a black foil on white PVCu door, FS70 casement windows and the tilt/turn panoramic window – all VEKA-based. The bi-fold and patio doors were manufactured in Glazerite’s new dedicated production facility by staff specially trained to work on these product lines. All had matching suited hardware from Fab and Fix and carried a ten-year product warranty.

Glazerite’s Peter Smith said the unusual demands of this job highlighted the benefits of choosing a fabricator that offers VEKA’s entire product range: “Because Andy could get everything from a single source – and one with VEKA Approved Fabricator status – all he needed to do was measure up, put in his order and then get on with the job. Glazerite was able to give him the technical support he needed and he had all the benefits of being an Approved Installer, including the free lead that gave him the job in the first place. The need for the five different products here was of course an extreme case but having the full VEKA range has proved a great benefit to very many of our installer partners."

Bowen Joinery and Glazerite transform Sheffield building
An iconic building in the centre of Sheffield has undergone a makeover thanks to Bowen Joinery Ltd and The Glazerite UK Group Ltd.  Exchange Place Studios, in the city's conservation area, is a stunning Art Deco building and as such planners had to approve the installation before it could commence. Home to 60 studio spaces over six floors, the building is residence to over 80 artists and has been regenerated as part of plans to improve the Castlegate area of the city. Local firm, Bowen Joinery Ltd, was appointed to take on the renovation, which took six months and was completed in late 2018. Run by founder, Mark Bowen, the company worked with VEKA fabricator Glazerite who supplied the profile system used in the build.  Mark Bowen says: "We used the VEKA M70 profile system of Tilt and Turn windows in Flat Grey, with integrated MACO concealed gearing and Fab&Fix handles. In total, we installed 221 windows, some of which had specially shaped topped frames." However, the installation wasn't without its challenges and was actually delayed for two years due to the discovery of asbestos during a routine survey. With no budget to remove it, the existing panels had to be carefully encapsulated by new panels during the transformation.  Mark explains: "We had to carry out work to encapsulate the panels below which were asbestos board, then fit the windows ensuring we didn't go anywhere near the asbestos. This meant adapting the screen walling system from VEKA so we could still use the capping, but on a timber frame behind." Pete Smith, Sales Manager for Glazerite, adds: "We worked with Mark and his team to provide the products in smooth grey Renolit foil to give an appearance that was in keeping with the original. This was of paramount importance for the installation. The windows are now more thermally efficient and user-friendly, with the end result a stunning, well-lit and better environment for the artists to work in."

R9 just the job for Wiltshire home
Wiltshire-based SJ Window Installations has recently completed a domestic project using Residence 9 windows and French doors from leading fabricator, the Glazerite UK Group Ltd.  Specifying Clotted Cream on the exterior combined with a White Ash interior, the installation matched an existing R9 window fitted in a previous extension on the property, which is situated in the Wiltshire village of Little Somerford.  A total of nine windows and a pair of French doors were installed over five days by Simon Jordan, owner of SJ Window Installations, who was carrying out his first ever Residence Collection project. He says:  “This was the first time I’ve installed Residence 9 though I’ve used the Halo FlushSash in a number of properties of late. Both are great systems and alongside the R7 - which I also have access to via Glazerite - I have a number of flush sash solutions for customers, whatever their needs or budget.” Simon adds:  “The marketing done by Residence Collection in support of both R9 and R7 is impressive, and this particular customer found me via the installer search on their website, which is fantastic.  “By working with Glazerite, I also have access to their own technical and marketing support which has been invaluable for my business. I’m able to call on them at any time, whether that’s to double check measurements for a complex project or the design and build of my website.” Giovanni Sangiovanni of Glazerite’s Southwest division says: “SJ Window Installations is a great example of an installer who is taking advantage of the marketing available from the Residence Collection. Having a profile on their online installer search facility results in great leads. Simon is passionate about quality and R9 is a premium product that has helped him to deliver a stunning installation.”  This year SJ Window Installations is celebrating 21 years in business. The installer works across the Wiltshire towns of Marlborough, Trowbridge and beyond, fitting a range of uPVC windows, doors and conservatories sourced from Glazerite.
