Rooflight maximises light

Architects overcome opposition to add mansard roof extension to London mews house. After a particu- larly contentious and protracted planning process, this semi-detached, red-bricked house finally boasts an impressive third storey extension as a result of the erection of a mansard roof. The installation of Glazing Vision’s elegant sliding-over fixed rooflight above the stairwell, together with four additional

fixed rooflights, has maximised the light streaming into this new living space. For more information on Glazing Vision’s sliding-over fixed rooflights or advice for your next project visit their website.

01379 658 300 Complete WarmCore suite achieves PAS 24

The new WarmCore Inline Patio Door has successfully been tested to meet PAS 24:2016 standards, making the whole suite of thermally efficient aluminium products PAS 24 compliant. All WarmCore windows and doors, including the SV slim vent window, flush sash windows and bi-folding doors, have been tested to PAS 24 standards, meaning they all meet the requirements of the Secured by Design security scheme. WarmCore products combine a full width thermal core with a powder coated aluminium exterior for the dual benefits of a hardwearing finish and excellent U-values of 1.4W/m²K for bi-fold and patio doors and 1.3W/m²K for windows. Phil Parry, Head of R&D at supplier Synseal Group, said: “As with all our WarmCore products, we designed the inline patio door with PAS 24 standards in mind, developing a bespoke bi-directional locking system unique to us which is secure to these standards when locked not only internally but externally too. This is a specification consideration which is often overlooked, and we believe we have the only patio door which offers this guarantee with standard hardware, without the need for plunge bolts or additional hardware.”

translucent cladding from Structura has been used in a stunning project at Rayleigh Durham Airport

in North Carolina designed by architects Clark Nexsen. The brief was to transform/refurbish the aging 1981 Terminal 1. Nicknamed the ‘blue box’, the original rectangular building was constructed using blue corrugated metal making it dark and uninviting while the inside was haphazard with a poor passenger flow. In a £50m scheme, a stunning new terminal has emerged from a complete redesign with everything from the curbside to the interior space. On landside arrival, a Kalwall canopy system provides shelter and links access points while a Kalwall translucent facade is utilised to clad the main terminal building. Its unique ability to diffuse natural daylight into the interior means the new TSA screening facility now has complete privacy for the sensitive areas while bathing the interior with natural, glare-free light. Kalwall is frequently specified for this type of prestige project where high-end performance and quality need to be coupled with aesthetics, practicality and a long life-cycle. Senior’s sleek finish adds style to Royal Enfield’s new R&D facility

As one of the world’s oldest and most famous motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield is known for creating modern classics and the company’s cool and contemporary style has inspired the design of a striking new technology centre in Leicestershire, which features a range of aluminium glazing solutions from Senior Architectural Systems. Designed by LE1 Architects, the highly glazed facade of the impressive two storey research and development facility has been created by leading fabricator and installer Unique Window Systems Ltd for main contractor Stepnell. With the need to maximise the flow of natural light whilst ensuring a comfortable internal working environment a key requirement, the attractive slim sightlines and enhanced thermal performance of Senior’s popular SF52 aluminium curtain wall system was the perfect choice for the building’s dramatic glazed entrance. To complete the fenestration package, Senior’s slim profile thermally-broken SPW300 aluminium windows were also specified, alongside Senior’s high-performance SPW500 and SPW501 aluminium doors which are ideally suited to high traffic applications.
