Masterframe delivers for stunning luxury housing development
Friday, June 14th , 2019
120 pebble grey PVC-U sash windows installed in The Spinney, a prestigious gated development of five houses in Hertfordshire, are a key feature of these beautiful homes. Achieving this classic styling for the windows was a high priority for the developers and the look, colour and performance of the new Masterframe sash windows ticked all the boxes.
“The colour was the key,” says Carol Slade, Managing Director at Masterframe. “The architect had specified the external colour of pebble grey RAL 7032 as a perfect match to the internal detailing. We knew that we could deliver a perfect colour match as we spray finish windows in house at our factory in Essex.
“These stunning homes combine classic style with modern living, and that’s what makes Masterframe’s windows perfect for the development.”
The windows were finished with a staff bead detail on the outer frame and a putty line chamfered detail on the sash profile, this was completed with an astragal bar. The traditional aesthetic was also enhanced with continuous horns, a deep bottom rail and woodgrain finish.
David Webb, Managing Director of Ravenworth, based in Barking, worked closely with developers and chose Masterframe as they could create the right look for the windows. “We carried out our own on-site survey so we could assess exactly what was required at the development,” says David.
“Ravenworth is a family-owned and run business with more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing and installing a wide variety of windows, doors and curtain walling systems, mostly in aluminium. The developers trusted me to source the best PVC-U sash windows for the project.
“We wanted 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.
“Timing was vital. The houses were built in phases and so we asked Masterframe to deliver the windows to us, so we could take them over to the development as we needed them.
“Masterframe was very accommodating and hugely efficient and the whole window installation at The Spinney went very smoothly. I look forward to working with them again.”
