Essex based installation company, Silika, has used a little expertise from Kömmerling manufacturer, Climatec Windows, for the replacement of a number of non-thermally broken, two-tone aluminium windows in a retirement block in Chelmsford.
Given the colours of the original windows and the need to make a direct replacement, the Kömmerling windows were sprayed in RAL 8014 (brown) for the outer frames and RAL 1019 (cream) for the sashes, including trickle vents, while the inside of the windows were left white at the request of the residents.
Climatec Windows used the C70 Gold system from Kömmerling with the latest slim sash for reduced sightlines. The windows were triple glazed, offering ‘incredible’ levels of sound reduction, along with ‘impressive’ energy efficiency credentials.
Rod Charnick, director at Silika commented: “This was a unique project for us, given the need to colour match, offer incredible levels of energy efficiency and the need for sound reduction. Thanks to Climatec and Kömmerling, we satisfied all the requirements, to the delight of the residents.”
Kevin Warner, head of sales and marketing at Kömmerling, commented: “This job by Silika shows that a little lateral thinking and commitment by them and Climatec, can result in a product designed to the most exacting of standards and that’s also what Kömmerling’s all about. This must be the first tri-coloured installation in browns and creams that I’ve ever seen!”
