Spectus fabricator World Group in Carlisle has completed a stunning window installation in a building restoration in Lockerbie.

World Group’s customer needed the 18 replacement windows to maintain the heritage feel of the period building and comply with planning permission requirements. At the same time, the customer was looking to create a contemporary feel to the property.

Matthew Spooner, Director of World Group, takes up the story: “The Spectus Vertical Slider gave our customer the type of window he needed, not least because it is very well accepted amongst planners and they will generally sign off its use without any further questions. Finished in Flat Anthracite Grey both inside and out, it provided the perfect combination of heritage and modern.”

Aside from the scale of the project – 18 windows – there was one other factor to take into account. The customer wanted to have completely grey windows but as the standard PVC-U substrate would be white this needed to be addressed to ensure the high attention to detail was met.

Matthew comments: “We have over 35 years’ experience and have been manufacturing Spectus Vertical Sliders for many years, so the size of the project was something we were more than able to cope with. When it came to the issue of the white substrate, we resolved this by using our spray booth to paint it and provide the seamless finish the customer was looking for.”

The end result is a stunning building that has heritage looks with a contemporary edge. Matthew concludes: “We are delighted with the project, as is the customer because it gives him everything he asked for in terms of the aesthetics. It’s turned a rundown building into something stunning.”

The Spectus Vertical Slider is the market leader in sliding sash replacement. And as this installation shows, it has the required aesthetics to sit comfortably in heritage properties in but can also offer a contemporary twist when required.

Combined with excellent thermal efficiency and exceptional security features, it gives modern levels of comfort and peace of mind too. It’s no wonder it’s the first choice of so many.
