High performance made-to-order timber box sash and weights were supplied, by Lomax + Wood, to this refurbishment of a former Victorian tea warehouse near to the Old Street Roundabout in central London.
Lomax + Wood designed, supplied and fitted their made-to-order timber box sash windows which preserved the heritage of the Victorian building while still providing modern performance. The windows varied in size up to 2.4m high so were integral to ensuring natural light flooded into the contemporary spaces that were created within the 1,400m² scheme.
The traditional timber sash windows are manufactured from engineered knot free timber for strength, stability and durability. The factory finished paint system is spray applied and micro-porous which allows the timber to breathe. All the frames are supplied factory finished, with all ironmongery including espagnolette locking . The timber windows and doors are double or triple glazed internally for security, all are tested independently to achieve PAS 24:2016, BS 6375 Part 1, 2 and 3.
Lomax + Wood are committed to sourcing from sustainable sources, to this end we have worked hard to achieve FSC® Chain of Custody which is deemed by many to be an environmental gold standard. This work was undertaken in partnership with BM TRADA who are also deemed to be a mark of quality in our industry. FSC® Chain of Custody is not the same as a timber window and door supplier providing FSC® documents for the timber alone. The Lomax + Wood FSC® Chain of Custody ensures the product is FSC® from source through to installation, if Lomax + Wood site fitting is specified, which is within the scope of our certification.
The timber windows and doors were surveyed and installed by Lomax + Wood to provide the customer with a single point of contact. Lomax + Wood offer a wide range of installation packages which vary to accommodate the varying requirements of any project, for example the Bronze package is for new build projects where a builder is on site, while the Gold is for existing properties where the customer is looking for the most complete service possible without calling in other trades.
Lomax + Wood are able to provide a made-to-order timber window and door solution to architects, private customers, developers and builders across the UK and our website demonstrates the vary varied styles and projects that we have been involved with.
