Objectives



Energy and moisture

Windows

The purpose of windows has somewhat been forgotten.

Functioning doors and windows, managing and mitigating moisture whilst reducing the need and consumption of energy. Installation and operation of polycarbonate secondary glazing to windows, vinyl draught seal to doors and efficient use of the foam applicator gun.

Secured in place with magnetic tape the panels are demountable, preventing air ingress/egress as well as reducing noise transfer.

Fitted at a low cost not only does this give draughty old sash windows a new lease of life it also protects the window from the damage caused by condensation.



Operable

Does it work and is it usable or is it remis altogether?- operating the operable.



Functional

Locks and latches

Brass square cup hooks

In high winds with a draughty window, the panel can be dislodged. A pair of little hook can ensure the panel doesn’t fall away from the window.

We are looking for something smaller than these which need cutting down and reshaping. Let us know if you find a better solution.
