Astraseal Supports Barker And Cresswell Glass With Stunning New-Build Project

When installation business Barker and Cresswell Glass needed large-span glazing products for a new-build development, they immediately turned to Astraseal for help.

The experienced trade and commercial fabricator partnered with Barker and Cresswell Glass to help create a stunning installation.

The property in Hertfordshire benefitted from Astraseal’s large span glazing products, including a 7.5m Visoglide Door and EcoFutural tilt and turn windows, both designed by Smart. The products were customised with RAL 9001, a cream colour and one of 150 shades in the RAL range of colours offered by Astraseal.

Visoglide Plus offers the contemporary styling and robust performance associated with Smart whilst delivering superior thermal performance. Profiles have also been designed to improve both strength and weather resistance. The system is also suitable for use with auto slide opening mechanisms.

The EcoFutural tilt turn is part of a versatile range of high-performance windows that utilise Smart’s chambered polyamide thermal break technology, which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside.

Based in Naezing, Waltham Abbey, Barker and Cresswell Glass operates throughout the Essex area and the company has been a regular Astraseal customer for 25 years.

Gary Barker, Managing Director of Barker and Cresswell Glass, comments: “Over two and half decades, the standard of service we have received from Astraseal has never been anything less than excellent and they delivered once again on this project.

“In this instance, we were working on a high-end project that required an extra-special, modern product. We wanted a dynamic residential sliding door that maximises light and provides stunning, unimpeded, views and the Visoglide was perfect.

“We were delighted with the results. The quality of Astraseal’s products are second to none and with their support, we have been able to take on much more complex jobs than we would have been able to manage on our own.”

Colin Stanley, Astraseal Operations Director adds: “We are delighted to hear that Barker and Cresswell Glass have benefitted from our range of large span glazing products. What’s great about these products is that they are suited to both replacement and new build markets.

“They are a fantastic installer, and they have done stunning work on this project. It’s always a pleasure to be able to support them and we look forward to collaborating with them on dozens more projects in the future.”
