A multi-million pound housing development is wowing buyers from across the UK with award winning PVC-U sliding sash windows featuring heavily throughout. Five stunning detached homes have been created as part of The Spinney, a prestigious gated development in Hertfordshire.
“The windows were delivered on time and the quality was perfect” David Webb Managing Director, Ravenworth Limited
The Heritage Collection
More than 120 sliding sash PVC-U windows from the Masterframe Heritage Collection were used throughout the bespoke build. Colour-matched in the Essex-based factory, the windows were finished in Pebble Grey RAL 7032 externally, and white wood foil inside.
The Heritage Collection is engineered to combine classic design with modern high performance and uses chamfered sashes. Slim, durable and secure, windows from the Heritage Collection are easy to operate for everyday use.
At this unique development, Masterframe’s PVC-U sash windows blend with the contemporary open plan interior style of the homes, whilst adding elegance and charm.
David Webb, Managing Director of Ravenworth, based in Barking, worked closely with developers to create the right look using problem-free products from Masterframe. He says: “Here at Ravenworth, we carried out our own on-site survey so we could assess exactly what was needed at the development. “The property developer wanted a lowmaintenance sash window with a good energy rating. We also needed to match the external windows finishes with a specific colour that designers had used inside the house and I chatted to Masterframe about this before we placed the initial order.
“When Masterframe confirmed that the colour could be uniquely mixed in their factory, it was pretty much a done deal – and we weren’t disappointed.” Working to a tight deadline, Masterframe manufactured the PVC-U sash windows and delivered them to Ravenworth – a familyowned and run business with more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing and installing a wide variety of windows, doors and curtain walling systems.
Once the order was received, Ravenworth installed the products on site. David said: “We asked Masterframe to deliver the windows to us. Then, in phases, we took them over to the development and started the fit out.” “This worked perfectly and Masterframe was very accommodating and hugely efficient.” Ravenworth, who usually specialise in aluminium windows and doors, recommended Masterframe to directors of the property development company.
David says: “I’ve been friends with one of the directors for over 40 years and he trusted me to source the best PVC-U sash windows for the project.”
“We needed a product that was going to enhance the luxury development, which was absolutely stunning. We felt that Masterframe had the capacity to fulfil our requirements and the sash windows were absolutely fantastic.” “The windows were delivered on time and the quality was perfect.” “We sent our fitters to site and the whole job went very smoothly. I look forward to working with Masterframe again.”
Jack Sellick, Trade Development Assistant at Masterframe, worked closely with Ravenworth to ensure everything went to plan on the bespoke housing development. He says: “Achieving a classic look for the window was a high priority.
Our Heritage collection, completed with staff bead detail on the outer frame and with a putty line chamfered detail on the sash profile, was complete with external astragal bar.” This, as well as the continuous horns, deep bottom rail and woodgrain finish gave the windows a truly traditional aesthetic. “For this project, the windows were sprayed Pebble Grey externally, using our quality controlled process.
