Over 400 Titon SF Xtra Sound Attenuator vents and Sobinco Chrono side-hung windows with night vent device adaption have been used throughout the new St Mungo’s student accommodation complex at St James Road, Glasgow.

The new property opened in September 2018, offering en-suite and studio apartments for students at the University of Strathclyde, located just three minutes’ walk away. Developers Watkin Jones worked alongside Glasgow-based Marshall Brown (Windows) Ltd, with the latter specifying, supplying and installing all the windows for the project.

Speaking about the development, Brian Ross, Commercial Manager at Marshall Brown (Windows) Limited, observed: “When considering the window options for this building, we knew side hung products were preferable to meet the increased ventilation requirements. The windows also had to provide a night vent function which, when working in conjunction with the SF Xtra Sound Attenuator vents, would provide the required trickle ventilation for each room. Having used Titon’s hardware and vents on numerous past projects, we knew these would provide a robust solution that would suit long term use with a Student Accommodation environment.”

Titon’s SF Xtra Sound Attenuator is a compact slot ventilator that provides superior levels of sound attenuation compared to similar ’acoustic’ products. It is part of Titon’s renowned SF Xtra range – which is widely specified throughout the UK as a cost-effective method of reducing incoming noise in situations where conventional slot ventilators are unable to assist with acoustic issues.

Sobinco Chrono fast-fit hinge and locking systems are suitable for most aluminium link bar profiles. They are suitable for virtually all variations of open-in window, with options available for high-security and French casement. A standard tilt and turn units can be assembled in around five minutes, greatly reducing fabrication time, while a choice of handle designs and attractive RAL colour finishes are also available.

Titon has been the exclusive UK distributor for Sobinco for nearly 40 years, supplying tilt and turn window systems, pivots, catches and handles, as well as locks, lift-slide systems, roller assemblies and handles for doors.
