The sky’s the limit: Howells Patent Glazing turn designs into reality
Our roof-lights are an extremely versatile product, which can be used for a multitude of purposes, proven by our impressive list of prestigious projects, including the NEC, Millennium Point in Birmingham and at the Albert Docks, Liverpool. Now with a full service on offer, from design right through to fitting and finishing a project, we are proud to showcase what we do. Howells’s new operating system allows for our products to be installed on anything; from private homes, listed buildings, commercial units or public sector installations.
As our service is bespoke to each project, it can be adapted during the design stage to incorporate a unique set of parameters. This could be dual colour (one colour outside and another inside), which in itself could be matt, satin, specialist RAL, mill finish or anodised. Whatever the specification and needs of our wonderful clients, our dedicated and experienced team are able to work with each of you to ensure your requirements are met from start to finish.
We have specifically redesigned our HGR1 glazing bar so that a new glazed structure which we have created for Alton Towers will blend in to the theme park’s existing orangery.
Tracey Jackson, Marketing Manager at Howells Patent Glazing said, “Our clients are diverse. They range from lord of the manor though to celebrities and to public procurement departments. We are really excited to be working together with English Heritage for jobs at Longford Castle and Beningbrough Hall Gallery and Gardens.”
“Having had our rooflights tested at Wintech for weather tightness forms part of our plans to be trade show ready. We are hoping to exhibit at a trade show in the next year and we are starting the process of testing our products and renewing our brochures in anticipation”.
Our Black Country firm has adapted its internal systems over the years, and we have recently released a slim line version of our glazing bars for a streamlined look and a completely flat version of our ever popular rooflight, which has absolutely no bars across the glass to give a completely open view of the sky, continuing to move with the times. We have also had our roof-light system independently tested at Wintech for Weather tightness testing this year and it passed to bs 6375 pt 1, snow and perm loading EN 14351 – Great news for our Midlands based business, as we go from strength to strength in our industry.
Howells Patent Glazing is a family run, well-respected manufacturer of glazing, rooflights, canopies and more for both trade and domestic clients; and has been for over 42 years. We hope to continue to see growth and incredible opportunities come our way!
