REHAU windows have cotton mill spinning with delight
REHAU S706 70mm PVC-U system
More than 100 replacement windows, fabricated in the REHAU S706 70mm PVCu system have been installed at an iconic cotton spinning mill in Huddersfield.
A REHAU Authorised Partner, trade fabricator Nu-Fit Windows has supplied 110 3 x 2m windows to replace single glazed timber windows across one façade of the 105 year old, six storey building.
The original timber windows had become rotten and draughty to the point that there was a danger that they could fall into the car park below.
The REHAU S706 windows were recommended as a suitable replacement for the timber windows because of their proven quality and durability.
Self cleaning glass was also specified to minimise the ongoing maintenance of the windows.
As part of the next stage of restoration work, REHAU windows will be installed across the remaining façades.
The first REHAU FMS remote access control system has been installed in a prestigious North London home, providing individual temperature management in every heating zone plus on-demand reporting of heating and cooling statistics. REHAU’s FMS internet interface control system offers users cost-effective control of their underfloor heating or cooling system via Bluetooth, smart phone, tablet or PC.
REHAU has introduced a new RIBA-approved CPD covering the specification of doors, windows and curtain walling as part of an energy efficient project. The CPD is entitled Fenestration: Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling and explores the pros and cons of the different material types available in the UK, which materials suit which project type best and design considerations. Building Regulations are also covered in the new CPD, alongside colour and finishing options.
REHAU joined with BRE and Solar Windows to provide an insight into the requirements of Passivhaus principles and the potential benefits in terms of lower energy costs. The successful seminar was attended by representatives from local architects, surveyors, councils and health authorities from across North Wales.
A new brochure from Rehau offers fabricators, installers and specifiers further details of the Nordic Design Plus flush fitting window system, designed for new build housing projects and as a replacement for timber windows in cottages and stone built properties.
REHAU designed a bespoke corner section for cable trunking to ensure desks at a London-based consolidated laboratory company achieved a flush fit.
