FGI EVERSEAL HARMONISES WITH NEW STARTER HOMES

Offering exceptional acoustic insulation, solar control and low emissivity, IG units from FGI’s Everseal range are in perfect harmony with new starter homes in west London. A total of 1,500 Everseal units have been installed at Harmony, an award-winning residential development in Isleworth by Wilmott Dixon. Incorporated into an innovative aluminium curtain walling system designed and installed by AWS Turner Fain, the Everseal units are performance rated to reduce ambient noise from the outside, and ensure excellent thermal insulation for the one, two and three bedroom apartments.

Totalling 2,000m2 of specialist soft coat glass the Everseal argon gas-filled units for Harmony feature a 10mm low emissivity internal pane and an outer pane of acoustic laminated glass of varying thickness to satisfy the sound reduction specification for apartments facing the busy main road and those at the side and rear of the three-storey development. As an additional aesthetic feature, selected Everseal units were produced with an internal green or blue film to one face to complement coloured sections of Harmony’s striking façade.

The Everseal range also offers the superior insulation and reliability of Thermo Plastic Spacer warm edge technology, which delivers a warm edge zone with a uniform temperature over the entire surface, while the flexible edge seal tolerates thermal stresses and wind loads – a crucial factor in commercial and structural glazing.

In addition to high performance insulating glass units, Everseal was able to provide a logistics package to suit specific requirements on site. This included HIAB deliveries and stillages supplied in accordance with LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) to ensure the safe and secure handling of large glass units.

Specialising in fully certified windows, doors and curtain walling systems for public and private sector projects, AWS Turner Fain offers a complete service from initial design to project handover. Sales Director Brian Cook comments: “We’ve worked with Everseal on numerous contracts and as such they are a tried and trusted supply partner. Once again, their ability to supply a high quality product to a defined delivery schedule has contributed to the successful completion of another prestigious project.”

Combining contemporary appeal with a mix of tenures, Harmony achieved Highly Commended in the Best Starter Home category at the 2010 London Evening Standard New Homes Awards. Designed to meet today’s needs, the stylish residential development offers a choice of outright, part purchase or discounted sale for key workers.
