Spectus windows selected for bespoke architect-designed home in Northern Ireland

Spectus windows were selected for a stunning modern architect-designed home in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. The windows were manufactured and installed by longstanding Spectus fabricator, McIlhatton and Company Limited.

The detached stylish new home was designed to make the most of the stunning views over the local countryside so the choice of windows was especially important. Patrick McIlhatton, Managing Director at McIlhatton and Company commented: “Spectus casement windows provided the high-end sleek aesthetics this project demanded to support the contemporary architecture of the new home as well as being able to meet the thermal efficiency requirements.”

In total, McIlhatton and Company manufactured and installed 24 casement windows and one set of French doors. The highlight of the installation was the large apex feature window situated at one corner of the property. McIlhatton and Company recommended a steel support top and bottom for this window to ensure the building was sufficiently reinforced.

To help meet thermal efficiency requirements, all the windows had a Window Energy Rating of A, which is McIlhatton and Company’s standard rating. The frames were manufactured in Anthracite Grey outside and white internally, which helped to create the sophisticated required aesthetic.

The windows were manufactured in McIlhatton and Company’s state-of-the-art factory in Ballymoney. They were installed by the company’s team of skilled tradesmen over two days and thanks to careful planning, everything ran smoothly.

Patrick commented: “We have manufactured Spectus windows for over 20 years. We like the multi chambered frame, the sleek appearance, the durability, energy efficiency and colour selection that comes with Spectus products. The high-end quality of the system delivers at every level and allows us to secure top-level projects such as this unique bespoke property. We are delighted with the finished result which showcases our work perfectly.”

Established for over 30 years, McIlhatton and Company is Northern Ireland’s foremost manufacturer of PVC-U windows, doors and conservatories. It serves both the retail and commercial markets and prides itself on its excellent reputation for quality and customer service, both attributes that are in clear evidence on this bespoke project.
