CWG Choices have just launched their traditional Legacy window, which incorporates Kömmerling’s O70 Gold sculptured outer frame, C70 Gold slim sash and a number of other key features. The result is a beautiful, long lasting, timber effect window which is low maintenance and doesn’t require painting.

As part of the high specification on the Legacy window, all transoms and

mullions are mechanically jointed with arris detail, giving the appearance of timber joints. The windows are also supplied with opening and dummy sashes only, to provide equal sightlines. The sash/mullion/sash sight line of 154mm also closely replicates timber proportions and combined, the window can be used to replace traditional timber windows or to give period detailing to a property.

The product also features a number of colour options to help reproduce a painted timber finish including White Ash, Irish Oak, Cream, Black, Golden Oak and Rosewood. As part of the inherent design, there is also a deep sculptured astragal bar to the interior and a putty line astragal bar to the exterior of the window, along with black gaskets on all sections. Handles are a black satin finish for a traditional feel and there’s the option of a monkey tail handle on side hung sashes.

In a market where post PVCu windows look similar on the outside, the

Legacy window offers installers something genuinely unique for the style conscious homeowner. It could also induce the traditional timber biased consumers into a change to PVCu. The Legacy window is also complemented with the Legacy door as part of a complete collection of traditionally inspired and timber effect home improvement products.

The fact that all of Kömmerling’s PVCu window and door systems are

extruded with their lead-free Greenline compound is another major plus, in a market where the vast majority of systems companies still used lead- based stabilisers in their extrusions. There are 5 chambers on the inside of Kömmerling’s O70 and C70 Gold systems, helping achieve an ‘A’ rating as

standard on this window with relative ease, along with the use of warm edge spacer bar on the glass units.

Jason Wilder, co-director of CWG Choices comments: “We have developed something quite special with the Legacy range and we now believe that CWG Choices has arguably, the widest product range in the UK as a fabricator. Our customers enjoy the wide range of products we offer and it means they can rarely walk away from any sales enquiry.”

A bespoke colour service is opening new doors for Bristol Trade Frames and Conservatories.

The company says that being able to offer customers their choice of literally thousands of different colours has proved a huge commercial advantage.

“As far as we’re aware, only New

World offers a bespoke colour service and offering this level of choice has been a massive selling tool for us,” said co-owner James Mizen. “Customers can choose any BS or RAL colour which puts the choice on offer into the tens of thousands.”

New World Developments

manufactures the most advanced door entrance systems on the market and has just launched the first ever all-glass reinforced plastic (GRP) composite doorset. The company

has offered a bespoke colour service on its Apeer 70 and 44 doorsets since their launch in 2004.

“Most manufacturers are simply

not geared up to offering a truly bespoke service on colour but customers can literally order a door in any colour under the sun from us,” said Alex Moore, sales manager at New World.

At Bristol Trade Frames, chalky ‘heritage’ colours have exploded in popularity over the past two years with Chartwell Green currently a particular favourite.

Said James Mizen: “Although the bespoke option is a little more expensive than a standard shade, it has not proved a barrier to sales. People absolutely love being able to have the exact colour they are looking for – it enables them to completely personalise their entrance system. Around ten per cent of our

orders are now for bespoke colours - everything from a plummy mauve to a subtle turquoise.”

Bristol Trade Frames and Conservatories was established 12 years ago with the 22-strong team headed up by James and his business partner Tony Fox.

The company sells to the trade and public direct and has been stocking New World’s Apeer doorsets for the past three years.

The unique construction of the Apeer 70 and 44 doorsets, with an all-GRP inner sash replacing the UPVC sash with fibre glass, means U-values have been dramatically reduced and doorsets demonstrate zero to negative expansion of heat.
