Mooragh the merrier
Developers constructing a block of luxury apartments in an exposed and beautiful location on the Isle of Man chose Eurologik doors and windows from Eurocell.
Lakeside Apartments is a four-storey shoreline development of eight three-bedroom apartments in Ramsey. It has views over Mooragh Park Lake on the landward side and across the sea to the mountains of the Lake District on the other. To make the most of these views and increase the natural light, Seymar Developments designed the apartments with five sets of patio doors opening onto balconies or patios, and two windows.
Eurologik was chosen on the advice of the main contractor, Fairway Construction, because of its high thermal performance, the lack of maintenance required and because it could resist exposure to salt.
“We’re a long-term customer and have dealt with Eurocell for a good number of years,” director Jonathan Cowley said. “We have always found its products to be high quality and competitively priced. The apartments achieved a very good result in the airtightness testing, and that requires high quality windows and doors as well as overall attention to detail in the general build.”
The doors and windows scored 2.71m³/(h.m²) at a pressure difference of 50Pa when tested for air permeability and so were nearly twice as airtight as required by Part L of the 2013 Building Regulations.
The doors and windows were supplied with chrome furniture in anthracite grey on white to complement the slate stonework at ground floor level, together with white Eurocell fascias and soffits.
