A large bespoke private house in rural Cheshire has not only proven the ideal showpiece for the VEKA PVC-U vertical slider but has also demonstrated how the classical styling of the VS, including many heritage authenticity features, can be just as much at home in a new-build setting.
Based on the unusual combination of cream foil out/white foil in, the house uses both straight and arched frames, with astragal bars as well as deep bottom rail and run-through horns for maximum authenticity. The result is a look which accentuates rather than contrasts the classical but uncluttered lines of the property.
Oldham-based D&M Windows, a VEKA Approved Installer with extensive experience of large and prestigious installations, was chosen by main contractor H Cumberbirch & Son to install 66 windows and French doors fabricated by The Glazerite UK Group Ltd, the UK’s largest VEKA trade fabricator, with the cream/white foil as a special order.
“This was a no-compromise contract right from the beginning,” said D&M Managing Director Mark Hoolickin.
“The client expected the best of everything and, with the help of the VEKA system and Glazerite, we were able to deliver it, from product specification to the design and look of the finished product and of course the finishing touches that make this VS so authentic looking.”
Glazerite’s Peter Smith added: “This was an unusual choice of foil combinations but dual foil is becoming more and more in demand and we are happy to supply any combination across our entire range of door and window styles.
“This was just one aspect of the exact design and appearance that the client wanted and, as ever, D&M was able to meet all his expectations and we were more than happy to be on hand to help wherever needed.”
