The doorsets provided are all A room with a view When contractor, SEH Commercial, was asked to specify the windows and doors for a retirement complex on the Essex coast, the company opted for grey laminated Total70 windows and doors from Rehau. Tim Hoelzer, sales director of SEH Commercial, said: “The architects had come up with a very contemporary design for the retirement complex and they wanted windows which would complement the look and feel of it, yet also deliver on their performance specification. Rehau’s Total70 windows fitted the bill and we were able to use both window and door profiles from the range, for a continuity of design across the development.” According to Rehau, the grey foil for the Beaumont House complex gives the windows and doors the modern look of aluminium, but because they are still PVC-U, they don’t have all the associated drawbacks of aluminium such as the higher cost The range comes complete with the additional features such as warm edge spacer bars as standard. Ian Short, managing director of Morley Glass & Glazing, said: “In the past, integral blinds didn’t fit into anything thinner than a 28mm frame. “Today, though, there is much more of a demand from people with composite doors and vertical sliding windows, and this slimline product will be able to appeal to part of the market that has not previously been serviced by integral blinds.” www.morleyglass.co.uk and reduced thermal-efficiency. The windows for the development all have a tilt and turn opening, which offers residents the option of either gently ventilating their living spaces with the tilt, or using the wider turn opening for circulating greater amounts of air.

Total70 windows incorporate double glazed sealed units, which considerably reduce outdoor noise levels, they achieve the British Standard BS7950 and PAS 24 security standards to ensure peace of mind for vulnerable residents, and they are A-rated for thermal-efficiency. www.rehau.uk/windows Bigger rewards with Velux this spring During March and April, Velux is offering people who buy white painted roof windows for their home renovation or extension projects rewards which are redeemable at top brand retailers and restaurants.
