Complex design requirements require a specialist fabricator, according to Mercury Glazing.
Chris Reeks, Mercury’s sales and marketing director, said: “Our customers can sometimes come up against the most demanding or sensitive applications and this is when working with a specialist fabricator really benefits. We understand the complexities involved and can deliver the products, however large or unusual, that our customers need.”
One example was a recent high-end application in regency Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
“As part of a prestigious refurbishment project in Cheltenham we manufactured three very large vertical sliders, of which one was a dummy and two were opening,” Chris said.
“The windows needed arched heads to fit in with the existing architecture, which we were able to offer. The design was further enhanced by the ‘floating’ internal georgian bars to replicate the feature on the original timber sash windows. The result was stunning and showcases the capabilities of our products as we are able manufacture up to 1,500mm x 3,000mm, fully opening and still achieve a window loading of 1200 pascals.”
Each window is based on the Spectus vertical slider. The windows are available with a WER rating of A+ as standard and can be Secured by Design accredited. Mercury was also the first fabricator to manufacture the new Spectus Mechanically Jointed vertical slider.
