Sidey Collaborates on Edinburgh Residential Re-development

Sidey recently collaborated and supplied & fitted fenestration solutions for a project in Edinburgh that was a residential re-development of a large brownfield site which forms part of the master planned regeneration of the Granton area.

The buildings include a mix of one and two bedroom apartments and three and four bedroom family terraced townhouses. Waterfront views are maximised with the apartments and townhouses arranged around a central landscaped courtyard area. The townhouses each have their own private garden deck and the majority of the apartments have private balconies or terraces.

Design is Key

The design specification for this project was to provide a product that was aesthetically pleasing, modern, energy efficient, provided noise reduction and was low maintenance. Taking these requirements in to consideration, Sidey’s revolutionary externally flush tilt & turn window was the ideal solution to these requirements. The product has been specifically designed to prevent the framework from overlapping to give a more ‘flush’ appearance and allows for a generous flood of natural light and ventilation into the building. The flush tilt & turn window boasts two opening positions – a tilt mode and a turn mode. The tilt mode offers secure ventilation, an improved factor in ground floor installations; and the turn mode enables cleaning of the window to be carried out without risk – a vital consideration in high-rise applications.

All windows also achieved a U-value of 1.4w/m2K and were manufactured to Secured By Design (SBD) standard. As well as flush tilt & turn windows, our open out french doors, sliding patio doors, composite entrance doors, FD30 fire doors and Aluminium curtain walling were all supplied and fitted. Each product provided the highest security and energy efficiency standards.

At Sidey we are firmly dedicated to providing the very highest standards & our long list of accreditations & investments confirm this.
