Profile 22 installer Oswestry Windows and Doors has recently completed an impressive installation of Optima windows and French doors in an award-winning barn conversion situated on the outskirts of Maesbrook near Oswestry, Shropshire. The exclusive five-bedroom gated property involved the installation of 16 Optima Flush Casement windows and two sets of Optima French Doors.
As you would expect on a high-quality property, the brief from the homeowner was exacting. Matthew Dunne-Smith, Owner of Oswestry Windows and Doors, explains: “Because the property was one of two exclusive barn conversions, aesthetically the new windows and doors needed to perfectly complement the adjacent property which were fitted with original wooden windows. Due to the superior aesthetics of the Optima system, the new windows and doors replicated the original window design and blended perfectly with the adjacent property.”
In order to deliver the seamless finish required, the Optima Flush Casement windows were manufactured in the popular heritage hue of Agate Grey and the two sets of French doors in Anthracite Grey.
Optima is an incredibly versatile system and its Flush Casement window is based on a traditional British timber cottage window design. As you would expect from the award-winning Optima system, it offers market-leading thermal efficiency and has a huge range of ancillaries and add-ons to enable windows in every style and to suit every property type to be manufactured. But while its looks are diverse, at its heart it is a system designed for the modern home with optimal thermal performance and rigidity thanks to its six-chamber outer frame and five chamber sash construction. It surpasses the UK and EU Building Regulations’ requirements, achieves PAS24:2016 on all options and is accredited by the British Standards Institute.
The windows and doors were manufactured by longstanding Profile 22 fabricator Emplas and fitted by the expert Oswestry Window and Door team in just one week.
The end results are stunning. Matthew concluded: “We are delighted with the results, as are the homeowners. The property was originally renovated to an extremely high standard with exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings delivering traditional charm to the converted barn. The windows and doors were the final sophisticated touch needed for the property and once again demonstrates the impressive qualities of the Optima system.”
