Working with the well respected window contractor Euro Windows, Superior Insulated Panels are providing polyester powder coated bespoke cill pressings to the hundreds of windows that will be required across the two phases of the Rathbone Market project.
Rathbone Market in Canning Town, London has been on the same site since 1963. It was originally located elsewhere but was relocated to make way for the A13 dual carriageway serving one of the main routes from Essex to London. Since the 1960’s Rathbone Market has been a major part of the local community.
A regeneration programme to refurbish the entire site is well underway developed by the English Cities Fund. This is part of a joint venture with Muse Developments, Legal and General Property and the Homes and Communities Agency.
A new commercial and residential district will be provided comprising new retail units, new housing provision and a refurbishment of the local High Street.
The completed first phase now comprises over 270 homes and 20,000 sq ft of new shops and retail units. A further 165 new homes will be provided as well as facilities to serve the local community.
Superior Insulated Panels are providing bespoke cill pressings.
Aluminium windows will often be supplied with standard cill sections. However certain installation and particularly with refurbishment works call for bespoke cill pressings to be manufactured. These will often be a different over length and design to “standard” stock cill pressings that are available in either 95mm, 100mm, 150mm or 180mm lengths.
Superior have the knowledge and expertise to provide bespoke cill pressings for any type of site condition.
The bespoke cill pressings we are providing for this refurbishment project are being specially designed and fabricated to suit the differing site conditions.
The cill pressings will be fabricated with the precise upstand for the back of the window to sit against and form an adequate seal against any water ingress. Additionally, these will be specially shaped to provide the required slope for any rainwater to fall away from the window and feature a return on the bottom section to be visually appealing externally.
These are then polyester powder coated in RAL 7048 grey metallic finish. RAL 7048 is becoming very popular as a modern yet distinctive powder coat colour, made even more attractive by the metallic finish it possesses.
The substantial window replacement at Rathbone Market will feature these bespoke cill pressings that will provide a long lasting durable polyester powder coat finish as well and complement the building and the new aluminium windows.
