ATT Fabrications chooses Sheerline for new build project

Staff of ATT Fabrications collaborated with THF Homes to enhance an architecturally led new build design using the Sheerline range of advanced, thermally efficient aluminium windows and doors. The ‘impressive’ new build project features three sets of Prestige bi-fold doors, two Prestige composite door frames and 15 Classic beadless windows, which were specified in a flush frame with stepped sashes. These products were selected because they fitted the client’s brief of being attractive, thermally efficient and featuring super slim sightlines, which Sheerline is known for, they say.

Another feature that helped Sheerline’s Classic beadless window stand out from the competition, according to Sheerline’s representative, is the patented jointing method. This method of construction simplifies the fabrication process, eliminating the need for crimping and specialist machinery while also reducing the misalignment of frames and locking in quality.

As well as helping the client achieve a sleek, modern aesthetic, the products were selected to ensure a consistent look across the property. “Sheerline prides itself on offering a ‘perfectly matched’ range of aluminium windows, doors, bi-folds and roof lanterns,” the firm’s rep said.

“Perfectly matched doesn’t just refer to the brand’s styling, it also extends to colours (with custom and dual options available), high performance U-values and energy ratings, security and guarantees. When a manufacturer reaches this level of consistency, it gives homeowners extra peace of mind.” All products on this project were chosen with cream exteriors and Hipca gloss white interiors.

ATT Fabrications has been trading as a large, high-volume fabricator for many years. Based in the north east of England, the company supplies large DIY chains, trade customers and direct to the public from a factory in County Durham.

The company manufactured all the windows and doors supplied and were particularly impressed with Sheerline’s product range, short lead times, and the fact the team were extremely responsive to their enquiries, offering a high level of support at all stages of the project.

Providing an agile and responsive service is a key part of Sheerline’s ethos and strategic approach to customer service. The brand provides online and on-site support to fabricators and installers, as well as advice to homeowners to ensure all its’ customers get the most out of their products and benefit from the unique features of the Sheerline range.

Andrew Devlin, managing director of ATT Fabrications, said: “We’re delighted to have supported THF Homes as part of a project to design and build a stylish home on an exclusive development in the picturesque village of Lanchester, Country Durham. The property needed the wow factor as all the homes in this development are valued at £1m+.

“This task was made easier thanks to Sheerline’s Classic system because it suits the traditional style of the build while adding a contemporary feel. Both THF and the installers appreciated the fact the windows came pre-glazed using the beadless system,” he added.

Roger Hartshorn, Sheerline’s CEO, added: “That ATT Fabrications chose Sheerline for this project is fantastic. The finished result is a refined, modern-looking home that encapsulates everything we offer as a brand. That our aluminium windows, doors and bi-folds were selected highlights the versatility of our products.

“Our proven whole-house solutions enhance new build and renovation projects aiming to achieve an ultra-modern, super sleek aesthetic. But we’ve also got products that provide a subtle upgrade for traditional, character and heritage properties, so homeowners can retain their property’s charm without compromising on thermal efficiency or security.”
