Case Study Two - Storm Windows Ltd

Sotorm Windows Ltd applicationStorm Windows Limited design, manufacture and install secondary glazing in both domestic and commercial buildings. Their business is, however, a far cry from the secondary glazing fitted in the early days of the “double glazing” boom of the 70’s. Indeed, Storm Windows began as an engineering company and have diversified to specialise now in bespoke secondary glazing for classic, historic and listed buildings where every application is different and the aesthetics and quality of the finished product and installation is paramount. A recent installation in a new housing development next to a High Speed Train line demonstrated the versatility and efficiency of the secondary glazing used. By installing their slim-framed, air-tight system, Storm Windows were able to achieve a significant reduction in transmitted noise, meeting WHO standards for noise in a dwelling place, whilst retaining the architect’s vision for the window design.

Accuracy of the dimensions of the aluminium extrusion frames is key to achieving the properties required for the window installations. Smiths Profiles worked with Storm Windows to ensure a consistent supply of the main aluminium profiles that make up the different systems for each application. Installation dates are often arranged weeks or months in advance, particularly for commercial applications such as in English Heritage or National Trust properties, and on-time supply of the aluminium extrusion framing is critical to achieving the promised deadlines. Smiths Profiles were able to offer a consistent supply of profiles on short leadtimes in order to achieve this objective.

"Smiths Profiles’ consistent supply has enabled us to manufacture high quality, products on time to meet demanding installation schedules" – George Parkes, Director at Storm Windows Ltd. James Scott Road, Halesowen, West Midlands, B63 2QT
