The windows were included, where needed, with two side-hung casements to offer a simple and attractive solution to fire safety requirements, the company said.

Jeld-Wen was appointed to supply and install new timber windows and composite doorsets as part of a major refurbishment of a Victorian-style block for Accord Housing Association.

The Regency-style windows were supplied with 24mm Low E tempered glass for security and greater energy efficiency. Entrance doors were replaced with the company’s GRP doorsets, which also enhance security and thermal insulation.
