Type of works: supply and installation of Comar 5P.i windows for extension.
Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with its approved fabricator Anglia Fixing Ltd, supplied Comar 5P.i windows for a new 2-storey extension to Attwood Manor Care Home in Halstead, Essex.
The project brief for this 2-storey extension was that the new windows blend in with the existing timber windows. A Georgian effect pane was achieved by cosmetic glazing bars within the cavity of the double glazed units. The thermally broken Comar 5P.i casements were manufactured and fitted in Hipca White polyester powder-coat.
Top-hung casement windows were hung on projecting friction hinges with an integral restrictor device to limit the initial opening to 100mm and were also fitted with push button key locking cockspur handles at the cill. Trickle vents, through a head extension bar, were also fitted providing a free airflow per vent of 8,000mm2 on these internally beaded and double glazed 28mm units.
All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. Anglia Fixing Ltd liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing, which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
