Whether you are building a new property or renovating an existing, your choice of fenestration will play a major part in the finished style and quality of your home.
That's why we, at Vale Garden Houses, have developed a metal window system in a class of its own, a desirable hand-made window, built in a timeless and much prized metal.
To cope with most requirements, we offer a variety of different types of metal window and door which can be adapted to suit, we also undertake a large amount of bespoke work for more unusual requirement. With our extensive woodworking and glass departments we are also able to supply a variety of timber sub-frames and fulfil all of your glazing needs from new to renovation.
So however simple or complex your project may be, you only have to deal with one company.
Focussing on the products themselves, our bronze casements are designed for single and double glazing and are also able to receive encapsulated glass units to individual requirements. All our glass units are made in house and conform to British Standards. All metal windows and metal doors are made using a combination of manufacturing techniques both old and new, ensuring the products are exceptionally well made without compromising the aesthetic principles of the metal windows traditional design.
We have four bronze window systems in our portfolio.
Our Heritage System is designed for use on historic and other period buildings where the principal requirement is a fine and delicate extrusion, glazed using silicone or putty in a traditional style. Traditional leaded lights or slim double glazing (typically 4mm glass with a 4mm cavity giving an overall 12mm double glazed unit) may be used. We are also able to curve the frame depending on the radius required.
The Advanced System is again a slim profile metal window which uses a decorative bead to secure the glass allowing a deeper double glazed unit to be used for greater thermal performance.
The Inward Opening System unsurprisingly opens from the inside; this design is based on European principles of metal window design and is ideal for properties with high or difficult to access areas.
We are also extremely excited to present our latest product, the ‘A’ WER (Window Energy Rating) thermally broken metal window combining the requirements of modern day thermal efficiency within the much desired slim profile frame. The standard range is now available with an increasing number of adaptations becoming available in the near future.
We manufacture four bronze door systems.
The standard bronze door which has been designed to complement our bronze window system consists of a slim bronze frame which is then glazed providing both strength and light. They can be produced as either single or a pair of doors, in a variety of styles, opening both inward and outward.
Two Clad Door Systems consist of a wooden frame with bronze cladding externally to match bronze casement windows whilst internally, leaving the wood to be either painted or stained. This unique approach doesn’t compromise the overall exterior look and allows the interior styling of the door to blend in with the internal décor. The clad doors may also be clad internally if desired. We are also able to manufacture these doors to be taller than our standard height bronze doors, albeit within practical limits.
We also produce a timber door which will accept a bronze insert.
Vale's have four factories covering over 150,000 square feet and within that, as part of our bespoke conservatory manufacture, we have extensive woodworking departments and glass shops.
We use the latest CNC equipment to optimise and machine the timber and then each frame is hand assembled with mortice and tennon joints or dowels. We use a variety of timbers and finishes that will suit most requirements.
Our Glass department will provide any type of glazing from renovation work and traditional leaded lights to high performance double glazed units.
We offer a choice of window and door handles, decorative back-plates and window stays to complement the level of decoration you require on your metal windows. Locking devices and additional security features can also be tailored to your needs, as is the inclusion of trickle vents, rain guards and saddle bars. We are also able to provide specialist hardware for more unusual projects and have reproduced original patterns and designs for sensitive restoration projects.
We have a dedicated design team who can guide you and give advice on which metal windows will suit your own project.
We offer a full measuring service or can work from builders/architects measurements. In addition, our installation service provides a dedicated team of skilled and experienced fitters, overseen by our Installations Manager. Alternatively, we can offer on-site demonstrations to your own installers.
For those wishing to see our products, we of course welcome visits to our factory in Lincolnshire and we are also happy to arrange an appointment to visit you in your own home/office.
We also regularly exhibit at National Shows in the UK where you are able to discuss your project requirements with the Design Team.
Ecobuild – 4th-6th March – ExCel-London - Stand S700
An event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the build environment. The organisers of the show provide a large number of conferences and seminars to deliver and discuss interesting topics for future builds.
Grand Designs Live – 3rd-11th May – ExCel-London - B104
This is the longest show we will be exhibiting at due to the large following that it has acquired over its 9 years of running. It is a show for ideas and inspiration. We will be in the Build section and welcome you to visit us there.
