Profile 22 has supplied 88 bespoke vertical sliding windows to a prominent private apartment building located in Southport, Merseyside.
Westcliffe Court was built in 2002 with first generation soft wood framed sash windows with 10mm double glazing. Over time the seals had started to fail and the building had become very draughty. Also the building is located in close proximity to the sea which causes the paint to quickly degrade, and so we were looking at a schedule of repainting the window frames every three to four years, which when you factor in the need for scaffolding was a very costly proposition for the residents.
The project needed an alternative that could better withstand the rigours of the environment in which the building is situated.
The vertical sliding windows were the perfect solution for this apartment building. They exactly match the look of traditional sliding sash windows whilst offering all the benefits of a high performance modern material that delivers a cost effective solution for residents.
The PVC-U Ovolo frames provide optimum strength, superior thermal protection and excellent weathering performance. Requiring minimal maintenance this system will retain its appearance year after year.
For a complex project, with the residents remaining in the properties throughout, it ran extremely smoothly and all the installations were completed on time and on budget.
