Profile 22’s universal two-part cill demonstrates the intelligence of Optima system

August 2018

Since its launch in 2016 Profile 22’s award-winning Optima has been hailed as one of the most considered systems on the market. For Gerald Allen, Epwin Window Systems’ Marketing Manager, the evidence for this is in the details. He says: “Optima was designed from the ground up to deliver a system designed for the 21st century. This is evident at every level of the system, but it’s the intelligence of details such as a universal two-part cill that set it apart. We launched it last year as part of our continuous product development process and its popularity demonstrates its value.”

The universal two-part cill means that window cills are installed in a two step process. The receiver is fitted during the construction process and the cill nose is fitted when the project nears completion.

Cill noses are one of the components that are most frequently damaged in construction and refurbishment projects, especially those at low level applications. By fitting the cill nose separately when the project nears completion, the chances of damage are greatly reduced.

The separate cill nose is also a benefit post-installation. Homeowners frequently damage cills accidentally. When a window is fitted with a standard cill, replacement is complicated and expensive. With a two-part cill, the damage can be repaired easily, restoring the window to pristine condition and retaining the quality of the building envelope.

The universal two-part cill comes with a choice of noses, all of which are compatible with Profile 22 standard one-piece cill for consistent styling across a project. It is also available in all 28 colours in the Profile 22 colour range.

Gerald said: “It’s a simple thing but it makes a massive difference. A two-part cill is easier to install, easier to protect during the construction process and easier to repair in the future. It’s just one example of the compelling advantages Profile 22 has to offer.”

Evesham Walk Curtain Walling

July 2018

Retail outlets rejuvenated and changed into 14 one bed apartments by Profile 22 Offices on Evesham Walk in Redditch have been rejuvenated into 14 one bed apartments with new curtain walling and casement windows from leading PVC-U manufacturer Profile 22.

Chartered architects and chartered surveyors Masefields Consultancy Services approached Profile 22 installer Goldstar Windows to upgrade the curtain walling and casement windows on a commercial and retail block in the middle of Evesham Walk, a prime commercial and retail area in the busy town of Redditch. The work would help maintain thermal efficiency in the building as well as give the aesthetics a new lease of life.

A team of experts
I Goldstar Windows has a wealth of experience in commercial installations. The company, led by Noel Preece, manages every project in-house with an emphasis on strict quality control procedures and attention to detail. Noel was delighted to be awarded the contract to install curtain walling and casement windows in the Evesham Walk property but was aware that with such a high profile project, all technical queries would need to be clarified and discussed in the planning stages.

He knew that his long-term partner, Profile 22 Approved Window Contractor frameXpress, would be able to provide any additional expertise that was required.

The expertise of Profile 22 was on hand too. Dave Stearman, Business Development Manager at FrameXpress, said: “We have worked with Profile 22 since we were founded in 1998. We manufacture Profile 22 because they offer superb quality, a comprehensive range of products and strong customer support. They offer an excellent design service which includes site surveys, design drawings, on-site training and specification writing service.”

Together, Noel, Dave and Gary Millership, Specification Manager at Profile 22, worked closely to ensure every element of the project met the specifications and fabrication and installation would run smoothly. A full survey was carried out with Gary who then produced the designs, training and on site support.

Award-winning products
The products chosen for the project were Profile 22 curtain walling SK250and Optima C casement windows. Profile 22’s curtain walling system combines quality, sustainability, aesthetics, price and performance.

Optima C is a 70mm chamfered solution that’s part of the award-winning Optima system that’s rapidly becoming the commercial system of choice for specifiers thanks to its intelligence and innovation. Dave commented: “Both products are recognised for their quality standards and trouble-free fitting benefits.”

A building transformed
The new curtain walling and casement windows have given the Evesham Walk offices a new lease of life as 14 apartments, giving the building a much-needed facelift as well as making it more thermally efficient.

Noel commented: “The project has been an absolute pleasure to work on from start to finish and all parties have performed very professionally. Profile 22’s specification engineer was invaluable with his knowledge and expertise and the design and support service has helped us complete the project successfully.”

Dave added: “Meticulous attention to detail was placed on the design and specifications for this project by everyone. It was a great exercise in teamwork by all parties.”

The project demonstrates the outstanding results that can be achieved when experienced, dedicated professionals work with industry-leading products
