GLAZERITE WINS SILVER FOR GROSVENOR WITH BESPOKE RAL WINDOWS
Glazerite Windows Ltd and VEKA helped installer Grosvenor win a contract for nearly 800 windows by coming up with a silver grey Foiled frame.
The RAL 7001 colour was specified to complement exterior cladding features on the project, a mixed development of Local Authority and affordable apartments with community centre at Primrose Bank, Oldham. Glazerite and VEKA answered the call with the Matrix 70 bevelled profile in the same grey to match the Cladding. Even the trickle vents were specially sprayed to match the frames.
Now, with the first phase of 550 casement windows completed, Bolton-based Grosvenor has won the next contract for more than 230 windows in the next four blocks along with main contractor Wates Construction.
Grosvenor’s Commercial Estimator Lauren Wilcox said the team were up against bad weather earlier in the year but were still able to complete one block of up to 70 windows per week as required. Glazerite Director Jason Thompson added: “This is quite an unusual RAL shade for a window foil and put to very imaginative use along with the cladding and other exterior features. With the help of VEKA, we were able to come up with the right combination product colour and all agree the result is very impressive.”
The trade-only fabricator has always recognised the growing demand for colours and foils. It was the first to offer the entire VEKA Variations range across every available system, the first to make a white grain on VEKA profile and has undertaken a number of bespoke foil projects for installers in the past.
