Specials department

Across six factories, Camden has the capacity to produce 30,000 units, thanks to a dedicated team in the specials department.

The specials department produces Camden’s bespoke orders: arches, curved frames and shaped windows. The team uses tailor-made templates to calculate the measurements the PVCU needs to be shaped to in order to create the specific shapes and dimensions.

The PVCU is heated and softened using a large specialist oven, reaching temperatures up to 180° for 10-15 minutes. The relaxed PVCU is then clamped onto a mould at specific dimensions to create the precise custom-made shape. Once cooled, the shaped frames are passed throughout the remainder the of frame process, quality checked and dispatched.

The process is precise and detailed, Camden said, and the department is getting busier with alternatively shaped windows and doors on the rise in the housing market. New build houses are increasingly having a feature window or decorative arched frames to give them a modern feel.

Made from 80% recycled content the frames are robust, secure, energy efficient, easily maintained and expertly designed.
