Expert support from Window Ware
Window Ware has supported a Warwick-based specialist aluminium glazing provider who required glazed-in louvres for a school build project.
Having won the contract to supply and fit the doors and windows for a new-build sixth form centre at Heathfield Girl’s School in Ascot, the customer needed advice to ensure the installation was up to specification.
The project called for robust, glazed-in aluminium louvres custom made to fit at the head of the aluminium windows, complete with composite insulated infill panels on the inner face that could be adapted by contractors on site for fitting to extract ducting.
They also needed to be 28mm thick to accommodate standard double-glazed sealed safety glass units, deliver a minimum available air opening of 44% and match the RAL colour of the specified window system.
Window Ware was able to provide the perfect solution in the form of custom-made DucoGrille Solid F30Z aluminium glazed-in louvres. The 28mm louvre grilles were supplied with insulated panels and custom polyester powder coated in RAL7044 matt to a durable marine-grade thickness of 60-80 microns with a 10-year paint warranty as standard and delivered direct to site.
Rich Fraser, Window Ware’s business development manager for aluminium and commercial said: “The customer needed our help interpreting a 237-page architectural specification to identify and source the most appropriate aluminium glazed-in louvre solution capable of meeting the architect’s requirements exactly.
“At Window Ware, a high level of technical support and expertise comes as standard and we always make sure our customers receive the very best guidance. Our skilled window and door professionals have worked in the industry for years and always take the time to understand our customer’s project and work closely with them to make sure our solutions fulfil all criteria.”
