Profile 22 has supplied its state-of-the-art Flush Tilt and Turn solution to help transform a vacant building in Staffordshire into luxury student accommodation.
Keele House, a former Tax Office, had stood empty for many years, and despite falling into disrepair, remained a landmark in the local area.
Profile 22 transformed the empty space into 160 high spec studio apartments. Reborn as Keele House, the building has been completely refurbished, with associated offices, kitchens and a gymnasium also delivered as part of the project.
To ensure warmth, safety, ease-of-use and pleasing aesthetics, Profile 22’s new Flush Tilt-Turn PVC-U windows were fitted in all 160 apartments – a total of 180 frames.
Available in a wide range of colour options, Profile 22’s new Flush Tilt-Turn System provides excellent security and weather tightness. The tilt before turn operation provides improved safety and the ability to carry out cleaning without risk – a vital consideration in high-rise applications. In the tilt mode the window offers secure ventilation, an important factor in ground floor installations. The tilt-turn gearing prevents selection from tilt to turn, while in tilt mode and vice versa. Anti-slam is fitted as standard and the gearing is concealed for improved aesthetics.
When specified in Anthracite Grey the appearance of the PVC-U windows “exactly” match the look of aluminium, but are more cost effective than their metal equivalents, making the product a perfect match for Keele House and the specifier.
The Flush Tilt-Turn system has a distinctive, sleek, modern design making it especially suited to new-build apartments. The high-performance weather seal system achieves a superior thermal performance, with U values to 0.8 W/mK this means that students now have a comfortable environment in which to study and relax.
