EUROCELL Fabricator Makes It A Double At Local Pub!

An award-winning stone-built free house with low beams and roaring open fires will be even cosier now that it has been fitted with 25 PVC-U replacement windows by Eurocell fabricator Aston Windows.

The company was asked to fit the cream coloured windows at the Horse and Jockey in the attractive Leicestershire village of Manton by pub landlord Jason Allen. Since completing the project, Aston windows has already won another job from a customer who was impressed with how good the windows looked.

Jason was particularly concerned about the heat loss through the pub’s existing single-glazed timber-framed windows, along with the high level of ongoing maintenance they required. He wanted to replace them with thermally efficient, low maintenance windows that would retain the aesthetics of the traditional building.

Aston Windows recommended unique cream coloured window frames fabricated using the Eurocell Eurologik profile system, with optional Georgian bars. Eurocell uses a distinctive through-colour extruded cream for its profiles to retain their pristine aesthetics over time. It also offers a full range of matching cream profiles including roofline, window trims and door panels.

The Eurologik profile can be used to create many styles of windows, and was particularly suitable for this installation where old timber frames were being replaced because the 70mm system helped the installers achieve unbroken plaster lines for a seamless finish.

Glenn Priestley, Managing Director of Aston Windows said: “The building has a lot of character so achieving the right look was an important consideration. As soon as we saw the pub we knew that the slimmer sightlines on Eurologik combined with cream colour and Georgian bars would help retain the traditional aesthetics.”

He added: “The high quality of the Eurocell profile was the deciding factor in winning this contract, and as a result of the installation at the Horse and Jockey we have received several further enquiries, one of which has already led to a new commission.”

French casement windows, fabricated using the Eurologik profile, were fitted to the pub’s first floor living area to ensure a ‘means of escape’ during a fire. Top and side opening casement windows were installed on the ground floor.

To further improve the thermal performance, Aston Windows fabricated the Eurologik frames using PVC-U Thermal Inserts. These are manufactured by Eurocell from 100 percent post consumer recycled PVC-U, from end of life frames returned from site, providing enhanced levels of sustainability.

Fabricators that use PVC-U Thermal Inserts find it an effective way of securing business because clients like the fact it offers them better value for money thermally efficient windows.

Pub landlord, Jason Allen, said: “After contacting several companies I chose Aston Windows because they fabricate their own frames, which meant they could manage the entire process from measuring and quoting through to final installation. I was really impressed with their service – they went the extra mile to ensure I achieved the look I wanted, which was a traditional appearance but without the maintenance burden and poor thermal performance of the old timber windows!”

Aston Windows was established in 1995 and has been a Eurocell fabricator for the past seven years. The company serves both the domestic and trade markets and has also undertaken a number of public sector contracts including school refurbishments.
