JELD-WEN Aesthetics And Security Combined At New Development 

JELD-WEN’s new Secured by Design specification for its sliding sash windows enabled housebuilder CG Fry & Son, based in Dorset, to meet social housing security standards on the ‘Old Kelways’ development in Langport near Taunton.

This exclusive development of 50 properties is located at what was once part of Kelways Royal Nurseries. The development was designed in a style that was sympathetic to its picturesque setting, with sliding sash windows specified to retain the original style of the buildings that were part of the street scene.

The timber sliding sash windows also complement the traditional style of build at Old Kelways, where natural stone, brick and clay chimney pots are incorporated to create a development that fits within its locality and will, in time, blend seamlessly into the local landscape.

JELD-WEN’s Sliding Sash windows that meet the Secured By Design specification were chosen for 18 housing association properties on the development that require enhanced security features, with JELD-WEN’s Self Build Design casement windows featured on a number of other properties. Old Kelways features a range of social housing and private dwellings from one bedroom apartments to four bedroom homes.

Andy Smith, Buyer at CG Fry & Son, explains: “The planning requirements were for sliding sash windows to the properties located as part of the street scene and for a Secured by Design specification on all the social housing properties. JELD-WEN met these requirements, providing a high quality product that complemented the standard of the build on this project.”

Vicky Severn, Product Manager for JELD-WEN, explains: “We are delighted that our new specification for sliding sash windows is helping developers to create desirable and secure homes. Security is a very important consideration for new and replacement windows and we are expecting this latest development to add to the appeal of our sliding sash windows for both public sector and private installations. We look forward to helping even more developers to benefit.”

It is just a couple of months since JELD-WEN released a Secured by Design option on its popular sliding sash window design. This means the window now provides enhanced security and is tested to meet the requirements of BS7950:1997.

Vicky Severn continues: “Every 30 seconds a home is broken into in the UK, which means security is an increasing concern for many developers. We gained Secured by Design on our sliding sash windows to provide even greater peace of mind for homeowners and to meet the increasingly stringent requirements on projects of this type.”

JELD-WEN offers a full range of sliding sash windows, all of which feature stepped sashes for improved performance, whilst still retaining traditional sight lines. All JELD-WEN’s sliding sash windows are supplied fully glazed with 24mm Low-E insulating glass units that ensure they can comply with the latest Building Regulations when installed in a new build property. They also offer excellent thermal performance, with energy rating options available which helps to reduce fuel bills and heating costs in a home.

In addition, all opening sliding sashes can be tilted inwards which is a great way to make cleaning of the glass easier and safer.

As part of its commitment to sustainability, JELD-WEN’s sliding sash windows are PEFC Chain of Custody certified. This means that the timber originates from well managed forests with strict reforestation programmes.

All sliding sash windows are available with factory finishing, with JELD-WEN offering a six year guarantee on stain finish and 10 year guarantee on painted finishes. Factory finishing of the windows uses micro-porous water-based stains or paints that allow the timber to “breathe” minimising water retention and damp penetration, whilst promoting longevity, reliability and low maintenance. JELD-WEN’s windows also come with a 40 year rot and fungal decay guarantee and are independently certificated under the BWF Timber Window Accreditation Scheme (TWA), also meeting the performance requirements of the Wood Window Alliance.
