Epwin products specified for residential flats

Epwin Window Systems curtain walling system and Optima windows have been installed in an entrance to a block of residential flats in the Greystone Gardens area of Rutherglen, Glasgow.

Owned by Rutherglen & Cambuslang Housing Association, the project required the upgrading of six windows, a main entrance door and curtain walling screening 8,077m high x 2,360m wide across the three stories of the building.

The contract was secured by Gold Seal Home Care, an Epwin fabricator and installer that has been supplying and fitting window systems in Scotland for over 30 years.

Gold Seal Home Care is said to have worked closely with the Epwin in-house commercial specification team to find the most effective project solution. The commercial specification team was also on hand throughout the entire process as part of the company’s end-to-end service available for all commercial projects.

Epwin Window Systems’ curtain walling is a high-performing, thermally broken aluminium system which is PVC-U clad both internally and externally for warmth and low maintenance benefits.

Following an initial onsite survey to establish the project requirements, the Epwin commercial team produced detailed specification drawings to demonstrate the proposed solution. They also developed fabrication cutting lists and provided fabrication assistance. The products were manufactured in hazy grey on white to match the building’s aesthetics..

Gary Millership, specification manager at Epwin, said: “Our commercial specification team adds value to our service and, by extension, to our commercial customers. It’s a level of support we are proud to offer all our approved commercial customers.”

Gold Seal Home Care and the Epwin commercial specification team faced several challenges, including the building’s brick and plasterwork construction, which added an extra layer of complexity.

Installation was scheduled for January, but despite the winter weather conditions, the project took just three days to complete.
