EXTERNAL ENVELOPE  BJ Waller helps historic Norman Castle

Oakham Castle, one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in the UK, has under- gone a major renovation, thanks to a £2.1 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. As part of the project, BJ Waller sourced and supplied architectural ironmongery to comple- ment the history and grandeur of the historical

castle, within a tight timescale. The door furniture supplied was in unlacquered polished brass that slotted perfectly in with the aesthetics of the historical castle. The ironmongery is also robust to cope with the high number of visitors to the historic site.

01353 647111 RENOLIT EXOFOL PX Light Ivory

RENOLIT EXOFOL PX Light Ivory is added in to the RENOLIT exterior grade range as a stock range item. Light Ivory which is a yellowy cream colour (similar to RAL 1015) is a complementary addition to cooler Ice Cream B and warmer Cream White widening the scope for designers, home owners and installers. Cream windows have universal appeal creating a sophisticated and pleasant installation which suits both traditional and heritage windows alike and also most building exteriors from stone, buff, red or multi-brick. Windows in this colour area have the ability to portray an elegant high quality image which has led to the demand for cream coloured exterior films increasing year on year. Cream is now the third largest selling exterior grade solid coloured film sold in the UK market and with improved availability of Ivory Cream this is anticipated to grow further. Ivory Cream produced as a RENOLIT EXOFOL PX grade material is a patented advanced exterior film which also benefits from the addition of RENOLIT’s solar shield technology. RENOLIT EXOFOL PX was developed to enhance weatherability, reduce heat build-up and extend guarantees periods in the UK.

0114 275 5224 Great returns at St James’ Place

St James’ Place Wealth Management Group recently moved into their new £10 million phase II office building in Cirencester, which is equipped with a comprehensive solar shading and screening solution from Levolux. Having fitted an external solar shading solution for the original building, Levolux was invited back to develop a custom solar shading and screening solution for the phase II office building. The new office building features an abundance of glazed openings on all elevations. This helps to maximise daylight levels and provide occupants with good outward visibility. To complement the glazing, Levolux developed a solar shading solution comprising its Infiniti Fin system and Aerofoil Fins, applied externally, along with motorised internal Roller Blinds and Venetian Blinds. Five Aerofoil Fins, each measuring 200mm wide, have been incorporated into 60 horizontal panels, fixed at roof level. Together, the panels, which have a projection of 1.2 metres, resemble a ‘halo’ that encircles the building. In addition, Levolux utilised its Infiniti®

Fin system, incorporating 300mm

wide aerofoil-shaped fins, fixed horizontally to the building’s south, east and west-facing elevations.

The Purist Approach

Specifying a roof window is one-time decision for the envelope of a building. When working on heritage or Listed buildings, the original Conservation Rooflight®

has the most authentic design.

The Nicholas Dean Practice specified twenty bespoke Conservation Rooflights® from The Rooflight Company for Week Farm in Devon in sizes measuring up to one meter wide by four metres in length.


Slim Frames help achieve Passivhaus

WARM – Passivhaus energy consultants confirm energy efficiency in Rationel’s slim framed Danish timber window products. And comment that these windows can achieve Passivhaus Standards with slimmer frames, without thermal insulation in the frames, and at a lower cost. Because of

their elegant slim profiles, Rationel windows have more glass and less frame than many of their competitors, giving greater solar gains, and daylight for the same size windows. Good solid quality workmanship has characterised Rationel’s windows and doors since 1954.
