Established in 2002, Mercury Glazing Supplies Ltd has a reputation for being one of the industry’s most reliable specialist fabricators of feature-rich PVC-u and aluminium products. The company’s expertise means it is often called upon to manufacture windows with complex design requirements. Chris Reeks, Mercury’s Sales and Marketing Director, explains: “Our customers can sometimes come up against the most demanding or sensitive applications and this is when working with a specialist fabricator really benefits. We understand the complexities involved and can deliver the products, however large or unusual, that our customers’ need.”
A perfect example of a sensitive application was evident in recent high-end application in regency Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Chris continues, “As part of a prestigious refurbishment project in Cheltenham we manufactured three very large vertical sliders, of which one was a dummy and two were opening. The windows needed arched heads to fit in with the existing architecture which we were able to offer. The design was further enhanced by the “floating” internal georgian bars to replicate the feature on the original timber sash windows. The result was stunning and showcases the capabilities of our products as we are able manufacture up to 1500mm x 3000mm, fully opening and still achieve a window loading of 1200 pascals.”
Each window is based on the market-leading Spectus vertical slider, of which Mercury is one of the UK’s biggest fabricators. The windows are available with a WER rating of A+ as standard and can be Secured by Design accredited, two key reasons why PVC-u vertical sliders are a very attractive option when it comes to adding heritage style to new build properties or replacing original timber windows. Mercury was also the first fabricator to manufacture the new Spectus Mechanically Jointed vertical slider taking heritage authenticy to another level.
Chris concludes: “Our portfolio demonstrates how far we have come as industry with the ability to offer such high-end specialist products for a myriad of applications.”
