Hotel and spa restoration

Profile 22’s Optima Flush Casement Windows were fitted as part of a restoration at The Hand at Llanarmon Country House and Spa, an ancient hostelry tucked away in the Berwyn Mountains close to Llangollen in Wales.

The restoration was designed to preserve its character and sense of history while upgrading its fabric, and the windows were manufactured by Emplas and installed by Oswestry Windows and Doors (OWD).

OWD recommended Optima Flush Casement Windows for the front elevation of the building, and used standard Optima casement windows for the remaining replacement windows.

Replicated timber casement features and options include mechanical jointing, a dummy sash to give a balanced look, a deep bottom rail to replicate original timber frames, and authentic hardware including monkey-tail handles and dummy peg stays.

OWD installed the windows over a three-week period, and now complete, The Hand at Llanarmon is a more thermally efficient and secure building while still retaining its historical significance.
