When contractors SEH Commercial were asked to specify the windows and doors for the Beaumont House retirement complex on the Essex coast, it opted for grey laminated Total70 windows and doors from Rehau.
Beaumont House is a new build apartment block of 60 one and two-bedroom apartments, in the historic coastal town of Walton-on-the-Naze.
Architects EJ Taylor created a contemporary and modern look for the retirement complex, with the use of colour louvres next to grey windows. The use of large windows with fixed side lights and patio doors leading onto private terrace areas helped flood living spaces with natural light.
SEH Commercial specified 124 Total70 tilt and turn windows plus 67 patio doors for the Beaumont House project, all with an anthracite grey laminate finish.
The windows for the development all have a tilt and turn opening, which offers residents the option of either gently ventilating their living spaces with the tilt, or using the wider turn opening for circulating greater amounts of air. This style of window is also easy to keep clean as the outside of the window can be cleaned from inside.
