Aluminium curtain walling in OldhamFrom our base in Audenshaw, we regularly work on domestic and commercial projects all-over Greater Manchester and the surrounding areas. So, we’re no strangers to the town of Oldham, set in lovely Lancashire. We made the short trip there for a recent commercial project of ours.

Our reputation for quality precedes us once again

Pepperl & Fuchs were looking to create a modern façade that not only greatly enhanced the appearance of their premises but boosted its thermal performance too. So, having worked with the main contractor on this project, MBC Building Contractor NW Ltd, for many years on a wide range of projects, so they were well aware of the quality of our work and our competitive pricing, we got the call to come and lend a hand.

Thermally broken aluminium curtain walling for a contemporary façade and energy-efficient environment

We started out by fitting some high-quality aluminium curtain walling with a modern Anthracite Grey on White finish. Renowned for having enviably slender sightlines and strong frames that can support large panes of glass, it allowed us to create the contemporary façade our client was looking for, whilst creating an almost wall-of-glass effect. So, the front of their premises looked chic whilst the inside was now brightly lit. As aluminium is incredibly hardwearing and resistant to corrosion, this stylish exterior will continue to look great for a long time to come.

Combining them with high-quality Pilkington ‘Activ’ double glazing, we more than satisfied our client’s need for enhancing their premises’ thermal performance by some way. For safety and ease of access, we also fitted anti-finger trap door stiles and low aluminium thresholds.

Anthracite Grey on White uPVC windows for a seamless match

So, to ensure for a seamless blend with our previously fitted curtain walling, they also came in a modern Anthracite Grey on White finish. As our uPVC windows can achieve Window Energy Ratings of ‘A’ and above and they also came with Pilkington ‘Activ’ double glazing, we further improved the overall thermal performance of their premises. As this double glazing came with a self-cleaning coating too, we ensured upkeep times were also kept to a minimum.
