Industrial Steel Style Windows Moreton-in-Marsh

A fantastic appearance thanks to a combination of products, with the contrast on proud show on the front elevation. The thin black aluminium frames are all a thermally-broken heritage product, and the timber front door is painted Nordic pine from one of our Danish ranges.

Perhaps not obvious from the photos, the thin black glazing bars on the heritage aluminium windows do not physically separate the glass units. For two reasons, this is a good option to choose. This way, the negative effects to the thermal performance are not as strong (all glazing bars negatively affect thermal performance because they create a extra thermal bridges). Also, simply, they are the more cost-effective solution!

Of course, the centre focus on the front of the house is the beautiful Sky Blue (RAL5015) front door. Whilst the colour is a unique feature, the door also has a customised panel layout and an aftermarket handle set up. Furthermore, the customer wished to retain a part of their old front door. So, the central door knocker was attached to this new unit.

Black handles are surprisingly rare in Denmark, and this does matter because aftermarket handles from the UK don’t fit into Danish door mechanisms. This traditional black door handle was shipped directly from an aftermarket supplier in Denmark.

Moving onto the door itself: the slow-grown Nordic pine arrangement was created by Unik Funkis in Northern Denmark. Clearly, not glazed, but each panel insert is the thickness of a triple glazed unit, increasing thickness at the central raised part. Combine this with the panel being full of PUR foam, and the result is a very well insulating door. In terms of durability and maintenance, Unik go above and beyond with their factory paint application. Industry standard paint thickness is around 70-80 microns, and most of our factories apply at least double that. Unik’s timber paint finish goes beyond 200 microns, so we’re confident this painted timber door is going to be happy for many years to come.
