frameXpress raises the bar

In recent years Georgian style windows have become increasingly popular with both planners and homeowners alike.

Since their introduction into the frameXpress portfolio the company has seen a steady increase in demand over the last 12 months as customers have grasped the added dimension this brings to their business.   The astragal bars can be fitted to any product to enhance the look of windows, doors, French doors & conservatories, giving them a traditional Georgian appearance of individual panes.Those available in the frameXpress range are available in white or woodgrain foils and are suitable for both domestic and commercial applications.

Most recently these were incorporated into a renovation project in Cambridgeshire where planners had stipulated that all replacement windows must be sympathetic to the original appearance of the period home.

The homeowners wanted windows with black exteriors whilst the interiors had to be white. The astragal bars were securely fitted using clips which were wrapped around the sealed units while the centre clips incorporated a specially developed adhesive that sticks to the glass in all weathers.

Ian Davis, Sales Manager at frameXpress believes that the consumer desire to upgrade their existing properties rather than move home has resulted in such positive trading for the astragal bar option.

He comments, “The astragal bars make an ideal solution for customers working on renovation projects as they provide the traditional Georgian appearance that so many planners require. They make a cost effective solution to the alternative multiple window pane option.

The introduction of the astragal bars was considered a progressive step to ensure frameXpresss customers had broader choice when approaching homeowners.

Ian Davis continues, “As manufacturers we are recognized for providing the highest quality windows, doors and conservatory products to the industry, which is demonstrated on this project. Being able to diversify and broaden scope for our customers’ benefit continues to be equally important.

We have a highly experienced team which provides tailor-made solutions and will offer technical advice on large, small or complicated projects. Taking positive steps forward in relation to product diversification continues to reinforce our leading market position, which our customers recognize.”
