Traditional and contemporary

Rebecca Cope, Reynaers’ marketing manager describes how, on the edge of open countryside with stunning panoramic views, a stone-built farmhouse uses a number of the company’s products.

Thanks to a variety of aluminium window and doors, large expanses of glazing blur the transition from interior to exterior spaces of Burnedge Barn, offering a feeling of freedom and a connection to the farmland in Grasscroft, Oldham.

Narrow frames and superior performance characterise Slimline 68, the window system launched to the trade just last year.

The outward opening window was used by Dekko Windows as it has been designed specifically to meet the needs of UK homeowners, allowing them to choose a product that gives them maximum daylight access while keeping their properties warm and secure.

The system is designed to be timeless while complementing both contemporary and – as in the case of Burnedge Barn – traditional-style homes.

SL 68 can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ and a U-value of 1.0W/m2K with triple glazing. When it comes to double glazing, the Window Energy Rating is A, with a U-value of 1.4W/m2K.

TSL 68’s security meets PAS24 and Secured by Design standards, as well as achieving Class 4 air tightness.

The strength of the aluminium frame and the clever design make it possible to create windows with large panes of glass. Ease of maintenance and durability make it the perfect window for fabricators, installers and homeowners too.

The window has a wind-resistance rating of E2400, and water-resistance of E1050. As the name suggests, SL 68 has a frame depth of 68mm, and can carry a maximum glass thickness of 43mm.

The CS 77 French-style door and the CF 68 bifold door were also used by Dekko Windows on the project. The Concept Folding 68 aluminium sliding folding door combines design, comfort and space efficiency.

Reynaers at Home’s CS 77 has been awarded the Swiss Minergie component label and is a thermally broken, multi-chambered system for windows and doors that offers security, weather resistance and thermal insulation. It offers a range of inward and outward-opening window and door designs that are available in three different styles – for both traditional and contemporary building designs.
