STEEL WINDOWS ADD WAREHOUSE APPEAL TO NEW APARTMENTS
Recognised with an award for excellence in design and construction, Carlton Works is a development of six one-bedroom apartments and a twobedroom penthouse; these are created within a building built in 1916 when it was known as the New Theatre. To add to the high-end warehouse feel of the development, led by Open Architecture, 28 steel windows and doors of varying sizes were designed and manufactured by Steel Window Association member Govette Windows.
The windows and doors are manufactured from W20 sections and hot dip galvanised and polyester powder coated in RAL 7021 matt black grey. All are double glazed with 16mm krypton filled units and low E external panes.

ISO-CHEMIE SEALS THREE PASSIVHAUS CERTIFICATES
ISO-TOP WINFRAMER is a pre-fabricated installation frame, which enables installers to fit windows into the insulation area between the inner and outer walls quickly and easily, avoiding the need to use metal brackets that cause non-repeating thermal bridging and give extensive problems when the windows need replacing.
The product was tested against various comfort criteria and classified as Passivhaus efficiency class phB, reflecting its outstanding energy efficiency values.
The versatile ISO BLOCO ONE is used to provide an effective gap seal to accommodate expansion and movement, and is the first joint sealing tape to gain the ‘Certified Passivhaus component’ certificate in the ‘Airtight systems/window connection’ category.
