Slimline Glazing Wins the 2017 Sustainable Building Awards

For the second year running, we are delighted to announce that Slimline Glazing and Aluminium Systems have won the Sustainable Building Awards - London. With this award, we continue to show the world how eco-friendly aluminium doors and windows are.

Following on from the success of the awards in 2016, the Sustainable Building Awards 2017 celebrate the efforts of the individuals and firms who act as trailblazers across the world of Eco-friendly and Sustainable buildings. These awards recognize the skill and dedication of innovative firms within this important area.

No longer seen as a niche sector, sustainable buildings are now considered a key area in the construction industry. As technology, marketing and consumer expectations have developed, the market has demanded more environmental designs and considerations within the construction industry. This has allowed those firms who are already progressive in this area to not showcase their creative designs and vision, but to share their ideas to the wider world.

Sustainability is an aspect of our world that needs to be encouraged, whether you are an individual or large company. The Sustainable Building Awards 2016 not only reward those who follow this path already, but aim to accentuate to all how to improve the working and living environment by adapting and changing the global construction market for the better.

The Sustainable Building Awards 2017 are all provided exclusively on merit, ensuring winners achieve this outstanding award solely on their performances to date.

“I’m delighted on behalf of the whole company to win this for the second year running” says Tony, CEO of Slimline Aluminium.

"We believe 100% in sustainability and will be continuing to develop this area of our business in the future.”

Caring For Your Aluminium Frames

Aluminium Framed Windows and Door Maintenance

The good news is, aluminium frames need very little maintenance. Built to last, all they really need is a good clean every so often, to get rid of the grime that gradually builds up.

Other areas of maintenance include checking the fixtures and fittings, and ensuring all is working well. A touch of grease occasionally in the hinges helps dispel any water trapped inside, as well as maintaining smooth opening mechanism.
Cleaning Your Aluminum Frames

The most important aspect of cleaning your aluminium frames is not to scratch them, so it’s crucial you only use non-abrasive materials. Warm water and a mild detergent is all that is normally required. Use a soft cloth or brush to prevent any accidental marking.

Always start cleaning at the top of your frames; then any drips from above will fall on a non-cleaned area. Keep the water as clean as possible to prevent dirty streaks appearing – change it regularly.

If you come across stubborn stains, use a little paraffin based cleaner or a cream cleaner free from abrasive material. For really stubborn stains, some white spirit should do the trick. Finally, wipe well with a leather chamois.

To get that final shine, use a product specially designed for the job, or you can apply car wax for maximum protection – just be careful not to get any on your glazing. Steer clear of products such as T-Cut, as these will have an abrasive element to them.
What Not to Use

To protect your aluminium frames and keep them looking like new, never use any strong substance containing any of the following:

Chlorination

Hydrocarbons

Ester

Ketones

Polish

Abrasive cleaner

Wire wools and brushes

Cleaning The Tracks on Sliding Doors

There is nothing more annoying than having to force your door to slide open. To keep it gliding in show-room fashion, check for any objects such as stones that might have become lodged.

Then either use a vacuum cleaner to clear out any dust or small objects, or a pressure jet to blow them out. Try to do this every month

Next you should then apply a minimal amount of silicon – the spray version is the easiest to apply. Use where the wheels and guide discs meet the track, as well as on the running gear themselves.
How Often Should You Clean Your Frames?

How often you clean your frames depends on your environment. If you live near the sea it might be necessary to clean them 3-4 times a year to prevent a build-up of salt. The same applies if you live in a heavily polluted area. In a 'normal environment', once a year should be adequate.
The Result

A gleaming clean finish that not only looks great, but helps preserve the life of your aluminium frames.

So why wait – get polishing today!

Traditional Windows - Modern Twist

However, one thing most people agree about traditional windows is that they fit the look of the house, and installing modern ones would interfere with both the interior and exterior façade.

So what do you do?

Sacrifice your hard-earned money to keep your house looking as if it all belongs in the same era, or downgrade your standards for the sake of saving what could be a substantial amount of money?

We have the answer...
Traditional Windows and Doors - Made With Modern Materials

In this age of progress, it is entirely possible to have modern windows that work well on old buildings, without making everyone stare and say – “Wow, those windows just don’t fit that building!”

Our new heritage ranges have been introduced that fit both criteria; they possess all the properties of the 21st century window but the beauty and grace that befits days gone by.
From Steel to Aluminium Frames

Aluminium, for example, is being utilised effectively to replicate steel-framed windows, making them suitable for heritage and modern projects.

The classic style seen in this range is normally fully acceptable in conservation areas, where tighter planning laws are in place to ensure a like-for-like replacement.

They can also be designed to mimic existing styles, and complement steel doors and features already in situ, while offering all the energy benefits of the modern aluminium window.
Tailor-Made Traditional Style Aluminium Windows and Doors

A real benefit of modern heritage windows is they can be tailor-made to fit any specification. So, whatever the style of your property, these windows can be designed to subtly match the original design, while staying in keeping with the overall character.
The Hidden Extras (spoiler - they're all benefits!)

However, hidden beneath the aged façade, you will be enjoying all the extras afforded by the most advanced windows going. With heat retention properties, security features and high quality as standard, having traditional windows need no longer be a drag on your cash.

Combined with either classic or decorative panes, modern heritage windows not only offer something to look through, but also something to gaze at.

First Impressions Count

Walk down a busy high street and you are bombarded by a huge array of commercial premises - shops, restaurants, bars - every one of them vying for your attention. It’s likely you’ll come across several all selling similar wares, so what makes you choose one particular store over another to spend your hard-earned cash in?

First Impressions Count

It’s all about first impressions, which really do count – clichéd but true!

The shop that catches your eye initially will be the first you visit, so making that extra effort to make your shop front stand-out is well worth the time.

Don’t be Dull - Choose a Diamond Finish for Your Shop Front

So if you own a shop, how can create that extra special touch? Consider the difference between a shiny, sparkling diamond and a dull pebble – which one immediately draws your attention? Of course, it’s the 24 carat stone.

So your job is to make your shop that gleaming precious stone, surrounded by lacklustre nuggets.

Shop Front First

Most retailers rely on their window dressing to attract their customers, but as a savvy marketer you need to go one step further, and think first about your windows and doors. By installing commercial glazing with that extra wow factor, you cannot help but attract that second glance that brings the customers to your door and beyond.

Pretty and Practical

One option is to consider glass extensions. These provide not just an aesthetic focal point, but also add extra room. If adding a glass extension is impractical, consider installing structural glass to replace existing walls or frontals. Not only does it offer a light and airy feel to your property, as an added benefit these double glazed units are energy efficient, and can be purchased with solar reflecting coatings.

Get Creative with a Commercial Glazing Solution

The beauty of structural glazing is that designs are only limited by your imagination. Use it in your ceiling to bring light and ambience into your store, or create exciting new features that will showcase your products. Or build a glazed entrance that attracts your customers like magnets to metal.

Open Your Doors... or the Whole Shop!

Don’t forget the doors either. A frameless door rail system is ideal for commercial properties, offering a stylish and practical solution both externally and internally. Various options are available, such as frameless end-fold door systems, frameless glass door rail systems or centre-fold models, allowing you to personalise your design. With the potential to install as many swing, sliding or folding doors as you want, you can have the crowds all flocking in together!

Put your commercial glazing to work and outshine your competition. Standing out from the crowd is simple when you know how – combine creativity with commercial glass and doors, and get that diamond shine.

Case Study: Glazing a modern house in Kensington and Chelsea - See more at: http://www.slimlinealuminium.co.uk/blog/2016/01/18/glazing-a-new-build-hou

Although technically a new build, there was previously a house at the end of this Victorian terrace in Kensington and Chelsea. However, it was destroyed by bombs in World War Two.

The house is in the centre of the Brook Green conservation area - located close to Kensington Olympia, Hammersmith Broadway and Shepherds Bush.

The Challenges of Modernising a Victorian Terrace in Kensington and Chelsea

House Plans Expoloded ViewDue to the restrictions on the area, planning permission for the project was not a straightforward proposal. Plans were eventually developed combining stone, render and glass, in a bevelled façade. Glass featured extensively, designed to allow as much light into the property as possible, in keeping with the Rights to Light covenant.

Delicate negotiation for planning permission was required, and a series of models were developed in the process. The complex nature of the build was represented across several studies, several of which have since been used in architectural exhibitions.

However, the complexity of the plans meant that an off-the-rack approach for the glass element was not an option. The project needed a specialist glazing company to design and install a glass façade, windows, doors, walk on glass and a glass stair case, as detailed in the plans. Known as the Tailored House, the name reflects the unique requirements of the project.





A Unique Bespoke Glazing Service on a Large Scale

Glazing a modern house in Kensington and Chelsea

In fitting with the complexity of the project, and working alongside GGR Glass, Slimline Aluminium offered a bespoke service to provide the quality glazing required. All the units were designed from scratch and built to specification off-site before installation.

Because of the need for steel fabrication work and powder coating, specialist machinery was employed to lift the glass into different positions. This required close collaboration between the operators and Slimline Aluminium.

Due to the weight of the glass, plus the hazards imposed on the installers from the weather and the elevated conditions, comprehensive safety equipment and standards were utilised throughout.

By implementing precision engineering alongside the skilled contractors from Slimline Aluminium, the glass and steel work was fitted to a high quality befitting the overall build.

The result - a beautiful, light flooded, modern house in the heart of South London

Slimline Aluminium provided:

Front glass facade to the dormer structure

Aluminium windows to the side elevation

Slide and pivot doors to the front elevation,

Two structural glass roofs

Glass stair case

Fixed frameless picture windows

SL17 sliding aluminium doors

Walk on glass


The overall result is a structurally sound build where the abundance of glass creates a feature of light. Aesthetically pleasing, it is also original and makes the most of the available space.
