A Victorian arcade has been revived after a major restoration using expertise from period window specialist, Ventrolla.
The Grade II listed Arcade Chambers in Keighley, West Yorkshire, underwent extensive repairs as part of the Keighley Townscape Heritage Initiative, including the refurbishment of all 41 windows in its front facade.
Ventrolla was called upon for its knowledge to retain the original sash windows. The windows were renovated with the specialists patented Sash Removal System (SRS).
The unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) was then fitted to combat draughts and reduce external noise. The sash cords were replaced, pulleys serviced and sashes correctly balanced to ensure the smooth and safe operation of the windows.
Sue Oakley, Keighley Townscape Heritage Initiative Officer, said: We chose Ventrolla to work on the front façade windows because of its specialist expertise and cost effective products. The windows were in a fairly good condition but they needed a general overhaul, new ironmongery, repainting and new cords. "
