Astraseal supplies vertical sliders for Newport regeneration project

Pill Shops 030One of the UK’s largest and longest established fabricators, Astraseal recently supplied its market leading products for an ongoing refurbishment project in Newport, Wales.

Part of the Pillgwenlly Regeneration Project to revamp Newport’s town centre, a number of Astraseal manufactured Rehau vertical sliding windows were installed by White Brothers & Speed, along with the installation of heritage style facades to 21 properties on Commercial Road.

The new windows were to replace existing timber sash window styles, and as a specialist in replacement installations for heritage style buildings, local company White Brothers & Speed were an ideal choice to carry out the work to a professional standard, in-line with the original appearance of the buildings.

Mark Legge, a director at White Brothers & Speed commented: “We had tendered for and won previous refurbishment contracts in Newport’s town centre, so when it came to additional work needing to be done we were put forward by Pillgwenlly’s Regeneration Manager because of our reputation for quality of installation and products.

“It was important the new windows replicated the style of the originals and Astraseal were able to meet these requirements. They supplied us with colour-matched heritage style windows which had all the traditional design details of a timber box sash. The quality was superb and we were very impressed with the service we received.”

Astraseal sales and marketing manager Zachary Nedimovic comments: “The windows needed to be a very specific RAL colour and thanks to our in-house colour coating facility we were able to offer an exact match. What’s more, having control of the colouring process was a major benefit to White Brothers & Speed because it meant we could offer a competitive price and a faster lead time.”

As well as offering Rehau vertical sliders, Astraseal manufacture a comprehensive product range including the full range of Rehau windows and doors, Synseal inline sliders and vertical sliders; and Global conservatory roofs. They also off aluminium windows, doors, curtain walling and shop fronts made with the Smarts and Reynaers profile. Bridging the gap between Astraseal’s PVC-u and aluminium product lines is the recently launched the WarmCore sliding door system, which combines an aluminium profile with a ‘warm’ PVC-u core.  All products are produced from three manufacturing sites in Wellingborough totalling 110,000 square feet.
