Blue aluminium doors and windows from AluK has provided a strong stylish solution for the offices of Hyder Business Service, a market leader in business process sourcing.
The new doors and windows were part of the refurbishment of Mill House, Hyder's seven-storey premises in Lincoln. The large size of some of the windows made aluminium, with its inherent strength and stability, a clear choice for the project. Fenestration design was dictated by the style of existing windows and classic casement windows from AluK's 70mm range provided a perfect match.
A total of 307 windows were made using AluK's popular 70mm deep direct fix frames with a slim transom, together with 17 commercial doors. The windows have 150mm cills and also feature a high security external glazed Euro Vent incorporating a Trojan shootbolt lock that is 'Secured By Design' licensed.
The specification of RAL 5001 (Green Blue) for the new doors and windows by the architects, Office Design Partnership, also posed no problem for AluK. In addition to the standard white polyester powder paint finish, the company's range is available in over 500 special colours (subject to quantity and delivery). An attractive combination of clear and arctic blue toughened glass has also been used throughout the building to complement the coloured windows and doors.
