Made-to-order replacement double glazed timber casement windows and doors from the Kensington & Chelsea range by Lomax + Wood have been specified and installed in a residential property in the conservation area of Hampstead Garden Suburb.
“Importantly the Garden Suburb’s Trust has strong sustainability policies which played a major part in achieving the approvals to replace the single glazed originals with double glazed units,” says Andrew Goding, sales director, Lomax + Wood. “The window design wasn’t an issue and as a recognised supplier the Trust knows we specialise in period styles and have the ability to replicate on a large scale. The side hinge casements are topped with top hinge swing out fanlights, some of which are fixed, with a horizontal transom mould.”
Precise dimensions were taken to replicate the sight lines and moulding of the original windows although a deeper frame was required to accommodate the 18mm slim double glazed units. Integral warm edge spacer between glazing bars required slim stiles, the vertical member of the frame, which was acceptable to both the Trust and Barnet Council. A comfortable 1.4 W/m²K U-value has been achieved which meets current Part L Building Regulations’ to ensure reduced energy consumption and CO₂ emissions.
Products in the Kensington & Chelsea range, which includes the popular sliding sash window, French doorsets, special shapes and entrance doors, are internally beaded for high levels of security and incorporate a full espagnolette locking system. They are made from sustainably sourced, FSC® Chain of Custody accredited timber which is engineered for maximum strength and stability. High quality ironmongery was chosen in polished chrome from a standard selection. Supplied with three coats of factory-finished micro-porous paint in white will provide a durable, protective and hard wearing coat while an attractive range of heritage colours, and stains, is also available.
