Verandas, Smoking Shelters, Glazed Canopies & Covered Walkways

As GM Glass know, Essex-based Trade Window Services have a fantastic reputation for the installation of double glazed windows, doors and conservatories. They have now branched out, extending their skills to the design, supply and installation of glazed verandas, canopies, smoking shelters and covered walkways.

Verandas and sunrooms are an imaginative alternative to patios and decking, and they can be combined to great effect. TWS verandas are available in an almost limitless choice of styles including classical, traditional and contemporary designs. 

The introduction of the smoking ban in 2007 forced bars and restaurants to rethink their outside spaces. Many saw this as an opportunity and with┬áTrade Window Services support they were able to enhance the natural features that already existed. Trade Windows Services now build verandas, smoking huts and sheltered areas that blend in with existing buildings or add something new. Their smoking shelters can be free standing or ÔÇÿlean-toÔÇÖ, with pitched, curved or sloping roofs. Smoking shelters from Trade Windows Service are manufactured using high strength, scratch resistant, transparent polycarbonates which is 200 times stronger than regular glass.

While verandas and smoking shelters offer pleasant, comfortable and warm areas to spend time outdoors, glazed canopies provide shelter to customers while they browse in shop windows. Combined with covered walkways, glazed canopies subtly steer potential customers in the right direction.

Glazed canopies are proving increasingly popular for the home where they are often installed over patios, decking and driveways. Like verandas and sunrooms, Trade Window Services can add lighting or outdoor heating and all glazed units come in a wide choice of tinted and coloured glass.

Aluminium Double Glazing & Aluminium Sliding Doors in Essex

GM Glass friends and marketing partners, Trade Window Services Ltd, are acknowledged experts in the installation of PVCu double glazing – especially in and around their home county of Essex. They are builders and craftsmen who construct conservatories, orangeries and sunrooms using the the latest double glazed units for extra insulated warmth. Trade Window Services supply and install a fantastic range of exterior doors, including GRP composite doors, bi-fold & multi-fold doors, French windows and patio doors.

The latest innovation from Trade Window Services is in aluminium double glazing. Aluminium double glazing has a strong history on the high street where it is a popular choice for shops, cafes and restaurants. Slimline aluminium window and door frames are less obtrusive than traditional PVCu double glazed window frames, keeping the focus on the shop windows and the displays within. 

Aluminium is a versatile material providing strength and security. Little wonder it is now being used to great effect by Trade Window Services in their latest designs for conservatories, orangeries and patio windows.

Aluminium sliding patio doors give an uninterrupted view of the garden. Available in two, three or four panel options, they are often chosen in preference to multi-fold doors as they provide a longer run of uninterrupted glass. Aluminium sliding patio doors from Trade Window Services are incredibly secure with multipoint locking fitted as standard. Trade Window Service Ltd install aluminium sliding patio doors as replacement doors in existing buildings as well as installing in new build housing.
