REHAU transforms London hotel with a new view

  • 21 Aug 2018

London’s California Hotel plays host to folk from around the world, all looking out onto the streets of London. REHAU’s stylish Vertical Sliding window profile has transformed the hotel and created a new spectacular view of London.

When the building’s windows, fitted with aluminium vertical sliders, were wearing out causing potential health and safety issues, the property owners were looking for alternatives that combined the heritage of the building and the conveniences of modern construction. 

Heritage Rose vertical sliders – manufactured using REHAU Heritage profiles by specialist fabricator Roseview Windows – are a prestigious and market-leading sash window that offers period charm and character.

SCI, the company chosen to replace the windows in the front exterior of the building, carried out a trial run of the windows before the entire project was completed to ensure that everything would run smoothly.

Neal Hovey, Managing Director at SCI said: “The requirements from The California were simple – replace the current aluminium vertical sliders with cost-effective, low maintenance, heritage style, aesthetically pleasing windows and the Heritage Rose was no doubt the right product, fitting all these requirements.”

The Heritage Rose offers high levels of security and scores high for its acoustic and energy efficiency credentials. It also incorporates an exclusive stylish run-through sash horn designed to replicate the fine details you would find on a timber sash window. 

Heritage Rose is highly customisable and has been designed with all the traditional detailing found in period windows, offering the ideal solution for The California.

Mark Collins, Area Sales Manager from REHAU said: “Heritage Rose may have been designed with authenticity in mind, but not at the cost of modern features and benefits. It is easy to operate, very low maintenance and never needs repainting, making it the ideal choice for The California.”

Overall, the window profiles adequately met the requirements for low maintenance and energy efficiency, but also matched the heritage appeal of the property with the added authenticity of run through sash horns.
