Black Spectral Church

Posted: March 18, 2021

Case Study

Client – David Watson

Area – Greenock

Project Type – Refurbishment of 1900s Church


Sidey recently supplied fenestration solutions to a customer that converted an old church into an art and food hub with a view to creating a space that was capable of staging major events and that people could meet to socialise.

Design is Key

As the building retained traditional ornate glazing from the 1900’s, the products that Sidey supplied had to be in keeping with the traditional look of the building. Taking these requirements in to consideration, Sidey supplied the customer with Graphite Black arched windows that featured planton bars to create a traditional ornate look. The Graphite Black colour was from our spectral colour range which, thanks to next generation surface technology, creates a smooth finish that emulates aluminium.  It is also highly scratch resistant, has anti-fingerprint properties, and is extremely resistant to UV light, extreme weather conditions and harsh chemicals.

Furthermore, the windows achieved a U-value of 1.4, making them much more energy efficient than the original windows. We also supplied the client with Graphite Black reversible windows that achieved a 1.4 u-value and featured gold handles which were in keeping with the style of the church internally.

Measured Benefit

All of the products complied with the design specification from the client and complimented the traditional look of the building thanks to the planton bars and the Graphite Black colour from our unique Spectral range. Better energy efficiency was also achieved by using our products.
