Spectus fabricator ADM Windows in Sheffield has just completed the installation of nine Spectus Flush Casement windows in a barn conversion in Worksop.
Aaron Fountain, Director of ADM Windows, explains: “When our customer came to us they were clear what they wanted: high quality windows with frames that would retain the heritage feel of their barn’s original timber frame windows.”
As a long-term Spectus fabricator, Aaron knew he could deliver what was required. “I showed them pictures of the Spectus Flush Casement windows and we took it from there,” he said. The Flush Casement offered everything the homeowners were looking for: windows that reflected the looks of traditional 19th century timber casement windows but with the added benefits of 21st century security, thermal efficiency and low maintenance.
To match the barn’s timber, the windows were manufactured with an Agate Grey exterior and white foil interior. “The Agate Grey was an almost perfect match with the original timber windows,” explains Aaron. Black monkey tail handles completed the period look.
Aaron concludes: “Our customer wanted modern solutions that still maintained the character of their home and with the Spectus Flush Casement windows that is exactly what we have done. Our customer now has traditional-looking windows but without the maintenance of timber. Their home is much warmer and the noise levels have been reduced too. Overall, we are delighted with the success of the project, as is our customer.”
