Profile 22 installer Max Glass has recently completed an impressive installation of Optima windows and patio doors in a 1930s home in Leeds. Stephen Hobson, Max Glass’s Director, says: “Our customer lived in a 1930s home and they wanted to maintain its period looks. The brief we had from them was that the new windows and the leading needed to replicate the original designs so they would not look like replacement windows.”
The project was a sizeable one: in total 5 three-sided bay windows, 9 casement windows, 4 arched top windows and 1 sliding patio door needed to be replaced. Stephen recommended Optima from Profile 22 for the job. With a white foil finish inside and out and square leading, the windows would bring a heritage look while the Window Energy rating of A and the low maintenance finish would ensure they had all the advantages of 21st century technology and innovation.
Profile 22 says Optima is an incredibly versatile system and it has a huge range of ancillaries and add-ons to enable windows in every style and to suit every property type to be manufactured. But while its looks are diverse, at its heart it is a system designed for the modern home with optimal thermal performance and rigidity thanks to its 6 chamber outer frame and 5 chamber sash construction.
The windows and door were manufactured by Profile 22 fabricator Heritage Trade Frames in Bolton and installed by the Max Glass team in just one week and the end results are stunning. Stephen comments: “We are delighted with the results, as are the homeowners. They had recently renovated the property to an extremely high standard and the windows were the final touch needed. They now have an aesthetically pleasing home that’s more energy efficient and easier to maintain.” In short, it’s everything you would expect from an Optima home!
