Window and Door Maintenance Services has completed phase two of a Rugby-based school development, creating and installing glazing units with the help of Kestrel Aluminium Systems
Ashlawn School has been extended to include a new creative centre for students and teachers to work together on assignments. The project’s contractor required a comprehensive glazing solution for the building, and reassurance that the products would arrive on-site, in full, by the specified date.
Window and Door Maintenance Services – a Tamworth-based fabricator – was contracted to manufacture and install the glazing for the second phase of the project. The company opted to use Kestrel Aluminium Systems’ window and door systems for the development.
As a trusted supplier to the fabricator, Kestrel Aluminium Systems was guaranteed to deliver the products on time. The materials for each different system were delivered in one order to ensure that Window and Door Maintenance Services would receive the components simultaneously.
Overall, 97 windows were created using 60mm window suites and both thermal and non-thermal ground floor treatment. They were specified to be top hung, using restricted hinges to ensure compliance with current building safety regulations for schools and public buildings.
The units were finished with a 150mm cill section; black accessories were used externally, whilst silver was specified for the inside. Green framing provides a striking contrast against the bright building’s red panels and wooden cladding.
Kestrel Aluminium Systems’ thermal framing were installed to ensure that the products met the project’s energy efficiency standards. All entrances to the building have been secured with the company’s commercial door systems, which boast PAS24-certification
