Area – Edinburgh

Project Type – High School Replacement Windows

Product Specification
From contract award notice, through to satisfactory completion, the project involved the replacement of major coupled runs of old, black, vertical pivot windows, which were manufactured to comply with strict planning, escape and cleaning regulations on the higher levels. It also required the replacement of several lower-level windows in modern, white, PVCu top-hung casements.

Measured Benefit
Many of the existing windows were in classrooms were in classroom areas that become excessively cold in winter and very hot in summer. We provided a solution for the City of Edinburgh Council by introducing modern Solartherm PVCu replacement windows, specified with anti-sun glass. This specification will ensure a more balanced climate, with heat being retained during the winter and a level of solar control during the summer.
