Howells Patent Glazing’s Tracey Jackson says the company is aiming high for the upcoming year.
This year has been particularly fruitful for Howells Patent Glazing, an independent manufacturer in the West Midlands, thanks to a slew of notable heritage projects and the introduction of a new product.
With more than 150 years of combined experience in the industry, the Black Country firm has a deep understanding of both roof and vertical applications using single or double glazing or Polycarbonate Sheet, as well as the traditional type of bars such as the Heritage Wing Bar, which is ideal for heritage building projects.
In addition to Windsor Royal Station and Stoneleigh Abbey, Howells has used the Heritage Wing Bar on numerous other projects as well.
Alton Towers in Staffordshire is one of Howells’s many endeavors. A new orangery roof was installed on Alton Towers Castle, a well-known theme park, as part of the project.
Over the course of four months, £110,000 was spent on the glazing contract, which had a completion date that coincided with the park’s reopening in time.
To fit the narrow timber rafters, we modified our best-selling HGR 1 rafter bar. The result was a glazing bar that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
For Beningbrough Hall, they recently completed a multi-faceted Rooflight.
We adhere to the BS 5516-1:2004 code of practice for the design and installation of sloping and vertical patent glazing in all of our heritage building projects.
Swimming pool covers and conservatories, along with industrial/commercial buildings, airports, and shopping malls, have also been part of Howells’s contracting portfolio. Between £10,000 and £1,000,000 are the firm’s contracts.
Since 1973, Howells Patent Glazing has built a solid reputation for itself as a top-notch producer of patent glazing roof lights and awnings. In the wake of their best-ever sales year, the patent glazing company has just unveiled their newest product, the Flat Skylight Glass. The family-owned company provides supply-only or supply-and-install contracts for patent glazing in both roof and vertical applications, using single, double, triple, and now their latest product, the Flat Glass Skylight, for both roof and vertical applications.
The company’s latest product was designed to bring as much natural light into a building as possible without any visible framing from the ground. Stylish and low-profile, the Skylight is thermally broken and can be installed on flat or pitched roofs. It can be installed on a builder’s kerb on a flat roof at a slope of 4° up to a slope of 15°, but 4° is the recommended slope. On request, triple glazing and walk-on options, as well as manually or electric openers, are all available for installation in sloped tiled or slated roofs from 4° to 45°.
RAL 9910 Satin bright White for visible internal surfaces and 7021 Matt dark Grey for external surfaces can be powder coated on the Skylight.
It is possible to order stock sizes of one meter by one-meter (1.5 meters by one-meter), 1.5 meters by one-meter (1.5 meters by one-meter), or two meters by one-meter (two meters by one-meter). One-of-a-kind requirements can be met with custom sizes, colors, and kerb options.
At their Cradley Heath factory complex, Howells produces all of their products and then ships them to customers via custom-tailored vehicles.
Sales, estimating, technical, and contracting departments are all on-site and ready to assist clients and provide a truly customized experience for each and every one of them.
