Acting as principal contractor, West Leigh Limited carried out the replacement of existing steel windows to 60 flats, comprising of over three hundred windows.
The replacement windows were recently developed W30 section, polyester powder coated frames, complete with insulated glazing units. The window replacements met with both the current building regulations (Part L, October 2010) and the requirements of the local planning applications committee for this prestigious residential block in central London.
The windows achieve a 1.7 W/m²K u-value and have received a ‘C’ window energy rating (WER). These results have been attained without losing sight of the need to replicate the slim sightlines of the existing windows.
W30 Steel Windows are the slimmest steel windows complying to current Part L building regulations. Designed for energy efficiency, W30 steel windows from West Leigh are the slimmest steel options currently on the market. In addition to the outstanding overall thermal performance of the window, the W30 is double weather-stripped to improve weather tightness and thermal efficiency while a chamfered aluminium beading system secures the double glazed units.
